We need someone like goyal going to Taiwan and sitting across the table with Taiwanese ministers and tsmc and get a deal signed. The delay is utterly incorrigible.

Re: Su-30MKI: News and Discussion - August 9, 2014

Would be interesting to find out what launcher they used. The NGARM uses an existing trapeze launcher. The MKI carries the R-27 on those hardpoints (there's a beautiful picture on BR of a fully loaded MKI with 4 x R27 and 4x R77).

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...
