A senior officer of the Indian Air Force has said that India foresees “substantial delays” in the Indo-Russian Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) programme, with slippages that could run into a year or more for inductions into Indian service. The Indian Air Force plans to contract for 50 single-seat (prototype designated T-50) fighters and 200-250 twin-seat variants — the latter will be built with Indian financial and technological involvement. More details soon.
