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

We should go ahead and order 36 or 54 more Rafale for IAF in F4 config in addition to India specific enhancements. Make Dassault go faster on delivery. To make up for squadron numbers HAL, Dassault everyone has to pitch in aircrafts simultaneously. That is the best way to proceed now that SC has cle...

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

That is not going to happen. It will be either Rafale or some other bird. But MMRCA will not stop at 36. From a commonality standpoint, it makes better sense to just order 2 - 3 squadrons more of the Rafale and be done with this. It is what I hope for anyways, Admiral. We are on the cusp of a major...

Yeah point 2 should settle the fire for most normal people. Plus Boeing abandoning HAL in 2015 for P8I and Dassault having a history of being uncomfortable with HAL are facts.

Is (2.7 x) cost escalation of building Rafale in India by HAL and the fact that Dassault is not going to make any guarantee for Rafale manufactured by HAL is the reason HAL is a no go for bulk manufacturing of Rafale in India ?
