MMRCA Competition begins today!

In the long, arduous journey that has come to define the MMRCA acquisition, real milestones are few and far between. Today is definitely one of those. The last date for submission of the bid proposals by the six companies participating in the $10-billion tender for 126 medium multirole combat airplanes.

The six companies and their contending products -- Boeing's F/A-18IN Super Hornet, Lockheed-Martin's F-16IN Fighting Falcon, Saab's JAS-39IN Gripen, RAC-MiG's MiG-35, EADS Eurofighter's Typhoon and Dassault's Rafale. I will be doing a special on the start of the contract this evening on my channel, Headlines Today. Will post the time here once the slot is confirmed.

Let the race begin!

I picked up the "MRCA" image from the net, but seem to have forgotten where it's from. If someone could alert me about Copyright, I'll be happy to place an acknowledgement here, or remove it altogether. Thanks.
