NG’s manager (intl biz) Tom Trudell says, “We briefed the Indian Navy again this year at a high technical level on the E-2D. We’ve been carrying out detailed technical briefs ever since we received authorisation from the US government to offer the E-2D to the Indian Navy. The technical discussions are now over. We are waiting for guidance from the Indian Navy.”
Northrop Grumman is also, incidentally, trying to convince the Indian government to consider a catapult launch system on its second indigenous aircraft carrier. Smart. “A catapult equipped ship is most effective for projecting power,” Trudell submits.
