    Absolutely wrong.
    you take the bet he'll be there for AeroIndia?

    I am very curious. Which of these jornos read RFP? i mean about Dassault responsability for HAL produced Rafales. Constantly mixing what they've read from other jornos and official statements. Like for the cost for example...

    IAF has confirmed that more Sukhois are not an option to REPLACE Rafale.

    Two different procurement

    ultimately the ball is in MOD court

    IAF is concerned with capabilites and nos of aircraft - which aircraft is in MOD call

    The first export version of T-50 will be available start from 2025 if the impact of restrictions, embargoes, and economic sanctions imposed by the west is not taken into account. Russia, a drowning country with the economy smaller than Italy's, is currently in the financial turmoil and it can't afford to speed up the development and pre-production stage as it wants to. Indian government would be naive if they believed that Russia would be able to deliver it promptly.

    Yup,,IAF has indicated many times that they want rafale and nothing else.

    And it makes sense seeing the capabilities,,,,,sukhois/migs don't come near it.And ef dosen't have good air to groud modes and an aesa yet which will be possible only after 2020.

    So what option remains??

    According to some retarded forumers here the HAL Tejas is the solution to everything

    IAF is the most handicapped service out of the 3 considering half the air fleet is rusting to the last screw

    comparing su-30 MKI with rafale is not solution. MKI is good aircraft and Only AESA radar not make big difference at other hand MKI is far ahead in speed, air superiority and maneuverability. if multi-role aircraft tejas is there but with AESA rader in MK2. if IAF go to MKI i think it super sukohi -30 MKI(because mki production line going to end as 2019 then at that point super mki is there ) not MKI so there are several advantages 1) if we produce mki in large number then the cost is decrease 2) as squd wise is very helpful to AIF to having one type of aircraft to train pilots. may be this deal going to end this year and output may be Tejas mk1 or mk2 + sukhoi-30 MKI is good to having this aircraft in line. F-35 is good aircraft but lets discuss abut it after OBAMA visit to india. Rafale going to hard way.
