Mail Today: PAKFA Takes Off This November
Regret the incorrect headline (out of my hands, unfortunately!), but here’s my piece in today’s edition of Mail Today. There’s also a paragraph that has somehow been edited out, which contained a detailed list of all the technical differences between the Russian single-seater T-50 and the Indian twin-seat FGFA, differences probably being brought out for the first time. Either way, that paragraph will appear in a follow-on piece that should appear in the paper in a few days. Plus details of the draft work-share proposal between KNAAPO, Irkutsk and HAL-Nashik. All of those edited-out details in the next instalment.
