Re: Rafale & MMRCA News and Discussions-9 August, 2014

I dream of a future 50 sqdn IAF. comprising of 200 FGFA + 800 AMCA.

With large number of AMCA enhanced for strike role and and few dozen in growler like configuration.

First they will be added to reach number of sqdns, than as life cycle of exisitng planes end to replace mig29, m2000, mki and lca.
