Welcome the great C-17III in IAF
India needs 40 of these biggie. As always good business. Order an Ford class Aircraft supercarrier with E2D Advanced Hawkeye and F-35C lightning II. It will prove to be force multiplier. Indian Navy will have the power that none other navy has in Asia.
any news on additional order of these fat birds……
we need atleast 20+ C-17iii
@sents, sure. Where is the money?
Sense. I agree with your idea that India needs more powerful navy and army but it also needs political will power to use the power for projection abroad to further personal aims. Sadly political will power is lacking.
Its a feather in our Cap . Hope to see at least 30 of them in our colours…
shame c27 is going to be blacklisted…………..that what we really need !!!!!!!!!!!!!
may we can get Boeing to build them
MR. KISHORE BUDHA . you must understant that hindi is not india's only language . there are pleanty of laguage and cultures present in India . our forces behave taking consideration of this too.
Saw this big bird landing today evening at HAL's airport Bangalore.
Excellent 'on time to delivery' commitment from Boeing. Give great confidence to the IAF in knowing that they can focus on thier core activities, i.e.: defending India's Airspace; and companies like Boeing, deliver on timeline…in most case, way ahead of the delivery date.
I think there needs to me a focsued shift from Russian suppliers to the American counterparts.
