Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

I feel the MH-60 and NASAMS deals were the sweeteners for CAATSA exemption and S-400. It is unlikely that the F-XXs will be part of the IAF, but the aerial component will be the UAVs which the IN (also IAF?) wants and more Apaches.

Just a hypothesis though.
