Cool. Wonder if the Rafale will show too. If the Hornet turns up, we'll have The Good, The Bad, and the plain grotesque on our hands.And I'm referring to Rafale when I say 'Good'.
Why not "the Good the bad and the queen"?I get it, we are not sure if it's a British Typhoon so we can't say queen ^^'
Mr. Aroor, Euro Fighter at AI 2011. What does it mean? It's natural they will showcase it if they are willing to sell the fighter. What's new?
I am afraid that now the MMRCA selection may also have to consider the various angles generated by the test flight of J-20.
I mean which contender might have incited the early test flight of J-20.Lol…
It appears euro fighter has almost cleared mmrca
Hope it stays .. as MMRCA winner..
Wow… why is typhoon so popular?Its just a bad attempt at trying to match the gripen.
I meanmixing all EU countries together when atleast 90%lacks technology..
eurofighter the winner of mmrca. can we guess see if this is happening with broad smiles, cheers and pomp from the stall.
Shiv, still waiting for your complete photo of placard at Tejas IOC.Please post it soon
@ shiv.Didn't we have one at the 2009 show?
And the smart supermodel Gripen is already confirmed.. 😉
Indian Army Says
The army has already placed orders for about 145 M777 ultralight howitzers from the US last year.
Any Update on this ??
F/A-18 Super Hornet offers advanced capabilities to IAF : Rick McCrary
Though the rafale has a low RCS , the hornet has high operational survivability and an in-operation AESA radar. Its disadvantage probably is it is in same heavy class as MKIs. I feel thre should not be 1 preference as an MMRCA fighter aircraft but around 4 [Gripen, Hornet, Rafale, Euro]. This would keep out the f-16 and Mig. Also it would increase our bargaining power with the selected ones.
@Anon 9:27 Rafale has some aero dynamics issues. So it can't be considered as good. Eurofighter though not a fully developed MMCRA is lot better than Rafale with structural issues…
All hail the Oirophyter yee ephh do hajjar !!!!
Call to speed up Indo-Russian fighter project
I'm with Matthew on this on the importance of getting into unkil's good graces. But I cannot agree with the dhoti shivering on the j20. I am not impressed with their copy. If India wanted to copy, we could be building 6th generation fighters by now. I estimate their stealth characteristics roughly comparable to the LCA with a coat of black paint and ours is already in service and completely indigenous. As it is, we do not need to fear them. Our FGFA will handily outclass whatever junk they can put up.
as expected!eurofighter is gonna pitch harder for the MMRCA deal.hope is brings some god news on making the planes totally in india &help us make our own AESA radar.the arrrival of the f35 cockpit simulator is gonna be the highlight of the aero india this year.
@ anonymous 11:34Reasonable! I laughed my head off!
Raf & Euro fighter both are having high expensive maintanence… India need to think twice…
