$670-mil RFP For IAF Jaguar Re-Engine Soon
A long-awaited RFP to select new engines for the IAF’s fleet of Jaguar deep penetration/maritime strike aircraft will be out shortly according to top government sources. Over the last couple of years since the IAF articulated its intention to replace the current Rolls-Royce-Turbomeca Mk811 powerplants (for enhanced thrust across the Jaguar’s operational envelope), the two contending firms — Honeywell (F125IN) and Rolls-Royce-Turbomeca (Adour Mk821)– have campaigned bitterly against each other. This is a deal worth over $650-million. A detailed post on both engines soon.
