Qatar's follow-on deal for 36 more Rafale aircraft cost $1.3bn in 2018. Follow on orders are a lot cheaper. If we go the g2g way for the 6 MRTTs (after failing to buy them despite 3-4 procurement process rounds), that will good. Those were around $3bn-ish. So definitely not "cheap". Sounds...

For GAETEC and SCL, getting newer lithography equipment should suffice. What really needs to get a move along is the civilian fab side of things. Then you would have a backup and a more cutting edge solution for when you need it.

With all the flying they've done, reliability has apparently been quite high. Given the IAF happiness with the Netra (even if you consider the differences between the radars) one would think there is high confidence in achieving satisfactory reliability stats.

Why do you need a brand new from-the-scratch design? if the IA decides on a caliber, it can call for locally made guns. OFB, Punj Lloyd(or whoever owns it), SSS or anyone else can go for trials and may the best wo/man win! They all have designs ready and it could get done in 6 months!

Also, AMCA is pencilled in for 6 squadrons for now. That is (2x18) x 6 = 216 engines minimum
while MWF + TEDBF alone will be 6x18+2x18x2 = 216 engines at the minimum.

DTTI would've resulted in something concrete by now if there was any willingness on the part of the americans. Given that they've outright said they wont share anything, all talk on those lines is moot.
It would therefore be interesting to see what the details of any discussion with RR are, if any.
