    There has been a lot of talk about this matter, that India might increase the contract of MRCA To 200 aircrafts and/or go for 2 different kinds of fighters.

    With Euro Fighter and Dassault Rafale only contenders left, is it possible that India might surprise everyone and go for 50-50 of both or some other kind of combination of these beauties :smokin:

    The deal is for 126 aircrafts, so going 50-50 is not going to happen, and its highly likely to happen that the follow on orders will be for the same airframe.

    Probably wont split, even if operationnaly it could be a good idea, IAF has enough issues with logistics and a lot of different plane types i guess
