Upgraded in 7 years. Cost of upgrading USD 4 billion. What a joke? Definitely a scam of humongous proportion.

The contract itself at such humungous cost & hugely delayed timline speaks of corruption, indifference to nation's needs and irresponsibility at the highest level when Israel was ven tempted to offer an upgrade at half the cost. Purchased along with Mica presumabaly an act to subsidise rafale or adjust the bribes associated with the contract,when few people talk about the Italian connection has major negative fallouts. firstly costly upgrades of both mig 29s and jaguars were justified and left little room for renegotiation towards a lesser price, thus providing a bad precedent. Also provided fresh lease of life to troubled… Read more »

Why don't they send two mirages to Israel and get them upgraded as per Israeli standards and let's see which is better and cost effective and I am absolutely sure the Israeli upgrade would be way less expensive and better and python is better than MICA missile and then only give the order for rest of the upgrade.

Hi Shiv,

What I heard was this upgrade is better than UAE M2K –
1) India will have the ICMS mk4 EW suite even more advanced than the UAE and the greek and which was already regarded as very effective.

2) It will also have the RDY-3 (Not RDY-2)which is improved radar compared to UAE and greek mirages.

3) Last but not least it will share the same MDPU (processor) than with the rafale and many common electronic subsystems. (a feature common to UAE mirage 2000-9)

Please confirm.

Upgraded mirages to have multi mode radar? We will eat anything that the firangs serve us and when MMR is to be mounted on Tejas, it is dubbed obsolete tech. For all its bravery and courage, IAF takes the country for a royal ride whenever it wants to and does not let indigenous capabilities develop, heaping all responsibility on NAL, HAL, etc. For how long will we continue to bear shenanigans of IAF?

Can you explain why it takes 7 years to upgrade 50 planes?

Its a SCAM of Biblical proportions.

Had the IAF any commonsense, it would've instead ordered Tejas Mk.1s instead — warts and all.

Instead, IAF asks ADA to perfect the Tejas to a 'P', while spending an eye-popping $4 billion on old Mirage-2000s (bought in the 1980s and not the 2000s; got to hand it over to the wily French in marketing).

Obviously, there is a scam in this expensive Mirage-2000 upgrade. Why doesn't the media even question the Air Chief and the Air Marshals over this ?

French formally offered to sell mirage 2k manufacturing line to India in 2001. In 2005-6 they were so desperate before closing the mirage line that M2k-09 was offered for around 20 million dollar a peice + a possibble help with tejas development could have been negotiated & all the newer technologies which were innovated for rafale could have been accomodated too. the same M2k is being upgraded (though useful and necessary) for 43 million $ upwards and going by that standards it would not be wrong if U.A.E and Qatar would start asking a higher prices for their newer version… Read more »
