Re: COMCASA Signing By India: A Trap or Unshackling?

So this agreement just for the predator drones and for the hypothetical scenario where we'll buy F 35? My take from this is Predator drones, NASAMS (both more-or-less confirmed) and quite possibly, even the F-35. I do not believe this is a blanket agreement. In your second example, the khans will m...
