Better to lump 54 Avro replacement with 100 An-32 replacement. Airbus CN-295 with TATA partnership is in the works to replace the Avros. More viable to continue CN-295 with more orders.
TATA wont be doing any thing more than Screwdriver Giri with these CN-295 , all they will do is assemble this in India.
Atleast with An-132 we might have a chance to get the design/tot and lic to build it in India.
