US F-35 Offer Comes Up In Indian Parliament


"The US has not offered India a partnership in the development of the world’s most advanced fighter plane, F-35 joint strike fighter," Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony told Parliament today. Enigmatic? Not really.

It seems to me. Indian Government is going to scrap the MMRCA deal.

So does this mean, AK Anthony would go with whoever who gives partnership in the development??...Looks like he almost indicated that Typhoon would be the winner!

"The world's most advanced fighter plane", sounds like a marketing tag. Raksha Mantri really said that about F-35 ??

If we asked for it I'm fairy sure they WOULD offer it. In fact if it was banned from being sold to India then it wouldn't even appear for RFIs like the Indian Navy's. So it's certainly available if we want it.

My advice is, if AMCA is delayed by decades just like LCA then scrap it and buy the F-35.

The "World most advanced" fighter will be 20 years old when it will enter in service! If it will enter in service!

Mr. Ra said...

F-35 is only attempting to replace or kill AMCA.

what a bloody UPA this is??

We don't need no F-35.

AMCA hasn't even been born yet. If it ends up the same way as the LCA we're better off buying F-35 than waiting for it. Else the rest of the world will already have 6-th gen fighters while we induct our 5-th gen.
