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…

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.

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…

How much is it going to cost them to bring the plane to Aero India ? An arm and a leg, I guess… But they are desperate. Indeed, Eurofighter is a failure, a dud. It died even before it could achieve anything. The UK, the most important of the founding members, is bailing out as fast as possible and the others members want to do the same :http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/jan/10/armed-forces-face-1bn-cuts Soon, more than 50 outdated Eurofighter will be scrapped because they are too expensive to keep! The RAF will keep about 100 Eurofighter only. Proof, that Eurofighter was a terrible mistake for… Read more »

The very topic gives me stomach upsets. In no way palatable! The MMRCA tamasha the PAK-FGFA, the LCA junk, shows how ignorant and inefficient the people in the rat hole (South Block) are.The Government is taking us for a ride. The only thing that needs to be done is let the Pvt sector take over and let them, do it, right now. Forget about reinventing the wheel instead charge ahead with buying or developing 5th and 6th Gen manned or unmanned vehicles.Time is running out, remember the CHENGDU is out! The EuroFighter and the Rafale will be in the Chinese… Read more »

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.

This isn't working! The MMRCA should have been procured five years ago! Now we are gunning to procure a 4th generation fighter when the whole world is moving on to 5th generation aircraft, with the USA moving on to an invincible 6th generation aircraft. We should scrap the air force, scrap the government, and scrap India (sic.). Like they say in India, "go drown yourself in a "chuloo bhar ka pani,"" is my advice to the Indian government. They have it wrong: they caught the elephant from the tail and called it a rope. I could go on and on:… Read more »
