Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

3.3 billion for leasing "ONE"?? That's insane. You get an AC from UK/France for that price. For 3/4 akulas on a lease - maybe. Perhaps I am being cheap, but I think it's a tad bit expensive.

I dont thik it is 2.7 times the cost of the plane. The manpower component would be 2.7 times what it would be in france. It will take some portion of the cost higher not the total price. Manpower will be a small portion of the whole price of the plane.

It will give the Tejas Mk2 similar T/W ratio as the Mirage-2000-5. the Snecma M53-P2 produces ~98 kN in afterburner and ~64 kN in dry thrust. Similar to what the F-414-INS6 will produce.
