    Well there is tectonic shift to the US defence industry after clearing chinook & apache offset and cancelling the European ones. Another US company Sikorsky is to gain with MRH. If NDA government was there in place of UPA surely F18 hornets would have got the MRCA deal instead of Rafale. It clearly shows how Sonia has played a role in influencing the decisions of Rafale.

    First The F-18 is large/heavy class combat aircraft, similar to the F-15, Su-30, J-11, Etc , in a different league from the Rafale which is a medium/light class similar to the F-16 , which was the requirement of the IAF

    Second,Sonia Gandhi is an Italian Born Indian, and The Rafale is FRENCH, whats the connection she has here????

    @G F18 is not heavy class aircarft. It was born out of light weight fighter competition. As YF17 it actually was pitted against F16. But this design is of 70s. RAFALE is more modern and more capable. Indian airforce looked at all aircrafts and choose the best they saw. No one sees any influencing here. Or may be except some who wants to see conspiracy everywhere.

    U are partly correct BUT

    The one that was included in the MMRCA is a F/A-18E Super Hornet (first flight 1995) – WHICH is an enlarged version (heavy class ) of the legacy F/A 18

    The proposed aircraft was the F/A-18IN i.e. an indian Air force variant.

    google it and see 🙂
