Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

$8 billion for 100 drones , that is like $80 million per drone , the figures dont look right.

More likely we will opt for small number 10-15 and use it for few years before we plan to order more or likely by that time we will have our own drone

Re: LCA: News & Discussions: 15 August 2017

Checking out these videos coming out lately looks like the knives are in the open with DRDO/ADA supporting the Tejas and would want to see the Single Engine program get cancelled and opt for more of Tejas versus MOD/IAF who would want to import another 100-200 single engine fighter.

There are no two ways about it. 1. Each imported single engined fighter means one lesser LCA. 2. Every imported fighter creates less Indian jobs than every LCA because LCA has much more desi components today, and will have much more desi components in the future.
