Re: MRCA News and Discussion

I am not saying Mig 35 is as good but it goes closest to F-22 than any other contender - and that makes it a sure winner .Anyway US is not offering us a F-22 even if we pay 300 million per piece . shankar although i agree with your point i still do not feel why we will be fighting against f-22 .......

abhi, rd-33 is an old design with very high maintenance requirements, low lifetime and virtually no growth potential. the sea wasp has reached its growth potential with a 7% increase in thrust. that's clearly not enough. also, remember when the LCA was being designed f404 was thought as stop gap ti...

The most inportant thing when you buy anything is money. It will require double(perhaps even more) the amount of RFP to purchase SH,RAFALE,EF. Btwn mig 35 is an enhancement of mig 29 and I too think the existing production lines for MIG 29 can be tweaked for MIG 35.Even if we agree that it will be ...
