I believe Link 16 requires CISMOA which GOI has not signed yet or has agreed to do so.

Seems Airbus has won the tanker competition.

Do all American weapons including this one come with end use monitoring?

Now media persons have started understanding the difference between Apache and Apache-Longbow versions(earlier media used to quote Apache-Longbow. by default :-).
US's deadliest version is Apache-Longbow Block III..not sure if India is buying Apaches with/without Longbow radars..????

Hope ultimately it will be good for the purpose.

Agree with Anonymous 9:07 : this is definitely NOT simulation. The sunlight and clouds, the reflections of the pilot in the windshield, the comms are too real to be fake. And though I don't understand a word of Russian, the dialogue between test pilot and test room is clearly recognisable.
