    French know the true meaning of IST-Indian stretchable Time. You need lots of Patience to work with India. we Indians have trusted our politicians for last 70 yrs and we are still patiently waiting for them to do some good thing for the nation.

    What do you make out of this
    • Reporter said 15 squad needed, is this 2 order as a way of testing the water
    • Trappier said
      • Its a batch of 36
      • with this we will install an industry base
      • with Installed industry, build the capability
      • with that get more opportunities
      • Translated into orders

      • not only for defence but for civilian market as well
      • Capable of meeting exports market via this.
    In a way, reporter on the face asked for a 300 jet order stuff.. which is pretty daring and blunt.. but i have to admit.. Trappier with his smile could not hide the prospects but played carefully with words..

    Tweet no 14 is also doubtful because loitering time depends upon range considered

    There is such option to be negotiated separately as part of MII. Pls read carefully, the component export will help us earn 3b.

    Rafale gets it only in A2A mode due to D/Ts as SU-30MKI does not have provisions for D/Ts.

    The number is reduced from what UPA wanted as a large number of Russian/Indian weapons will be integrated on Rafale for India. One of the biggest minuses is-no bribes for mother of AAP, the Italian waitress. You can beat your chest like a Widow/Raand now for this huge loss in election funding from khangrass.

    13. Very Important: There is NO CLAUSE for additional aircraft as part of this deal. 36 jets is final unless fresh negotiations happen.
