I am glad – fact is that India needs trainers. Another RFI and another long tender procurement process would kill pilots. Not to mention overheads of having 2 different trainer aircraft.

It is good that a crucial matter has been resolved. The financial implications may be understood later.

Well it is NOT A BAD IDEA Floating a new RFP to sort out an old dispute.
We save both time and money.

THIS METHOD can be used for submarines procurement.
LET SCORPENE makers fight for this new submarine contract

Can Hawk be used for close air support and other task similar to LCH like intercepting UAV? Has IAF configured it with any sensors?

there is no harm in having two different AJTs. But the main thing is to stick to the protocols for buying aircraft. just because RFIs are slow doesn't means the tender should not be floated.

and are the 17 hawks that navy going to get T-45 Goshawks..

Not sure why but I do NOT feel comfortable with this news. There is a gut feel that no issues have been ironed out just white washed for public consumption. Once the additional 57 Hawks will be delivered, we will be back to the same mud slinging. Someone is making a lot of money in this deal, this is for sure.

we buy whilst Pakis make profit from their K-8's. We need to be ashamed. Why can't we produce anything of quality.

The Hawk assembly line has been shifted to India so it is semi-indigenous anyway. If you ask me this is a golden opportunity to let the Indian private sector develop some experience by letting Mahindra Aerospace(they bought an Australian aircraft maker) or Tata Aerostructures(tied up with Boeing) develop a new trainer.

Forget HAL, they've got more than enough projects on their plate(which they themselves admit) and besides why should they remain 'India's sole Aircraft maker' forever and ever?

17 for the IN? That's a lot! Good. We must continue to beef up the IN air arm. IN test pilots have been flying the LCA for some time now.
