Re: India-US Relations : News and Discussion- II

Why? Is it anywhere close to being viable for a F137 class engine (as opposed to a long term research project)? For the record, given our current core competencies, developing a Global Hawk-type HALE UAV is a far less ambitious project than developing an analogue to the turbofan that powers it. Sau...

Re: India-US Relations : News and Discussion- II

We're not on the cusp on developing a high thrust turbofan engine. Not even close. If we want something in the Global Hawk class, we need to import it. And as and when we get around to developing one domestically, we'll still need something similar to the F137. Remind me again what we are going to ...

Development is slow and limited, as most of the items are restricted. Things that can be used on LCA, cannot be openly used on Rustom. My point being, we usually associate MTCR with missiles. We are getting to being self sufficient on missiles. But we may need entry to catch up on UAVs. My reply
