The cancellation comes after one day of retirement of NAK. Now some one should study the Tyagi / NAK combo for the MMRCA when NAK was the DCAS. Lot of skeletons will come tumbling out. Poor AK will have a tough time to carry forward any deal now except FMS.

The whole thing from the beginning is a fuss. Instead of vvip helos we need attack helos, transport helos, multi-role helos.

what will happen to the money already paid? Did we only pay enough money for 3 helis or did we pay for more than 3 helis??

I could never really understand the logic behind purchasing 10-12 unique helios. As if IAF had a small problem dealing with the logistics – add to it a totally new aircraft type. At least the Russian Mi range has some degree of commonality between types. We really need to look at the logistical and operational footprints of these a/c. Our netas do not need a totally new a/c. Even the mighty US Marines landed in hot water when in June 2009, the VH-71 program was canceled due to cost overruns. Right now, they are running an AOA – an analysis… Read more »

Good decision. There should be some sort of scam involved in this deal.

Also don't sign any deals for the next 1 year, let Rupee value gain to 45 against US dollar and simultaneously against POUND and EURO. Then sign all our military deals.

Hopefully, India will spend the money on buying fighter aircraft it sorely needs (such as a combination of the Euro Fighter and the Draken) instead of finding yet another way of pampering its VVIPs, bribing the US by buying transport aircraft (C 17) it does not need, or the rentiers of its DRDO-PSU cartel who manufacture the obsolete and unfit for purpose LCA:
