    Fr AF has a large number of them in storage and if we can upgrade the earliest lot of them why not the late 90s models?

    They are upgrading their M2Ks to extend their service life, since they diverting Rafales from their orders for exports. So they have nothing to give away, besides it might end up as a low costs IS hunter now.
    And no 2nd hand fighter with 4th gen technology will give us protection against J10s and J11s.
    M2K was a nice fighter and it's good that we upgraded it with, but we need proper 4.5th gen fighters now, if not even 5th gen already.

    M2000 line is closed until 10 years. Best would have been for india to purchase the line.

    If you want second-hand Mirage 2000, make an offer to the United Arab Emirates.

    Would have been a good idea in 2010 but now tejas is maturing and Mk2 is coming so not viable at this stage.

    It was considered during and post Kargil war given Mirage 2000 brilliant performance but first flight of Tejas but and end to that. A big mistake Govt regrets till date.

    That video is hilarious in just how American it is. Obviously, it was made for an Anglo-Saxon audience (the use of the English language is a cue here). I mean, "JET NOISE: THE SOUND OF FREEDOM" superimposed upon an explosion? It feels really weird not to see the star-spangled banner flowing after that. Also I really, really love the credit to Bethesda Game Studios at the end, because nothing makes propaganda more believable than implying you've been using video game footage. Also there's that ridiculous "mud moover" typo. Moo!

    Still there are some nice views of the Mirages going fast, so it's not all bad. But the rest of the time, it made me laugh.
