Excellent!! India should go in for more c-17's though (possibly 10+ more) to meet its strategic objectives in Asia.

With US defence manufacturers, adhering to deliverys on time is commendable. P8i Neptune is on schedule likwise the 6 C130J having been delivered well ahead by Lockheed. Hope France sticks to the deadline.

I am afraid the french deal is ill conceived , by allowing France to manufacture at-least 126 on its own , we can get them to install a new production line , while we first establish a base for maintenance and overhaul facilities , then go in assembly /production .

This deal has been signed just after the MMRCA competition, and we already have the first jet whereas we are still haggling with the French over petty issues.

IMO, we must dump the French and opt for F35 jets.

F-35 , is worst , yes VTOL is good , but it can be "sorts" achieved from 3D trust vectoring ,
BUT
here is the good apart having a 100 Million jet on a single 20 million engine is a leap of faith . And goes beyond stupidity

Rafael is a excellent package , not only we familiar with the supplier and technology , it was designed to operate in varied theater from the start . A true Omni-role

Its just the deliver schedule is a far too loose

India needs more than 10 C-17s. It's the most advanced and reliable cargo air lifter existing now. Please consider changing the ugly looking Hindi writing with better Hindi font and "Indian Air Force" in English.
