    We always say that all indigenus development is failure…but the thing is we have t also take into consideration the knowledge and the spinoff that happens along with it…great work for now by DRDO even though there is much that needs to be done on LCA itself…

    Brazil buys $12 billion of Helicopters, Submarines from France

    Friday, Jan 09, 2009
    Brazil signed contracts worth $12 billion to purchase five submarines and 50 EC-725 military transport helicopters from France, the current issue of Defense News magazine reported.

    The submarine deal involves the purchase of four conventionally-powered Scorpene attack submarines and the construction of a nuclear-powered submarine to be built with French cooperation, the magazine said.

    A French official traveling with President Nicolas Sarkozy in Brazil last month said the contracts were $9.4 billion for the submarines and $2.6 billion for the helicopters, the article said.

    The French government will pocket around six billion euros (8.4 billion dollars) of that total, with the rest going to private defense firms involved in the contracts
