the brits see you as the one that got away and more importantly, rightly or wrongly, as the sole reason for bringing their empire down.
they are going to give you nothing. Track their deeds since independence and understand clearly how they have sought to hobble you.
Now that the whiteys see you moving ahead, in spite of their best efforts, NO TECHNOLOGY of the kind you are hoping to get will ever be transferred.
you have no option but to do it on your own.
Why have all countries ganged up so purposefully to deny you technology??
We made headway in space and nuclear tech, not because of them but in spite of them.
1) Very true. And Brits used Nehru and IAF officers gullibility (Cranwell etc) and sold lemons. The damn Jaguar couldn't take off from high altitude base. And its bomb sights etc were abysmal. Note it beat the Saab Viggen and Mirage F1 to be selected as Deep Strike Aircraft!!!! If it wasn't for the Darin upgrades it was good for nothing. The ordnance usually was dud. Read the 1965 and 1971 war accounts with a critical eye. Gnats Aden guns used to jam. The plane needed expert pilots to fly it. The ships were rust tubs and it was the great IN sailors that kept them sea worthy.
2) Australia Group, London Suppliers, Wassenar, MTCR, all are clubs to keep mainly India only out.
All doors open once you already developed the technology and are ready to manufacture it in quantity.
Orange is a good student of Michael Porter theory of competition. He sees the French aviation industry as a big obstacle for US dominance in aircraft industry. So he wants to kill it. French A/C industry is a three legged stool : French air force,Indian Air Force, and some gulf countries. Its low budget industry and doesn't need many sales to keep it alive.
So the offer of US aircraft is to knock one of the legs of the French.
This also makes India dependent by reducing options.
About the Rafale don't spend so much time.
IAF wanted Mirage 2K features.
They put that in the AQSR to ensure they get what they want.
Originally wanted M2K replacement. Then folks added more to get to 126.
Think of what 126 MMRCA will do to IAF!
UPA wanted competition to appear to be fair.
The Russians, Swedes and EU got greedy and applied.
US felt why not join the gravy train as jiziya for IUCNA deal.
IAF did what they want and chose the Rafale the M2K successor in France.
The L1 etc were bokwas while UPA was negotiating to see who will give more kick backs.
And created an offset crony industry. That's what Ambani and Lootyens arms dealers are all about.
Meantime elections were held and NDA won.
The treasury was empty as AKA also stated.
MP cut the Gordian knot.
Made Defence budget is below 2% to ensure no imports.
And anyway the procurement cabal rejects everything under procedures and returns th money.
This charade was going on for ten years of UPA.
Net Defence budget was effectively that anyhow.
He even found $3B dollars parked in US by UPA and forgotten!!!
He let Tejas MK1A be the Mig-21 replacement and ordered it.
He then decoupled the Rafale 126 to the M2K replacement need for the IAF strategic requirements.
All the arms dealer crooks names are coming out via Christian Michels who was so sure he can hang out in Dubai instead of London like other crooks.
Soon the first Rafale will be delivered.
If IAF likes it and price is fright one or two more squadrons makes sense.
However if TSP collapses then not likely.
Need to strengthen the Navy.
