    is it a bit early to speculate on the seven additional planes that the IAF decides to buy?

    Ah finally!, always suspicious about the SH and solah, but the C17is a lovely beast. Good decision IAF/MOD.

    Now get those ALG's ready for these monsters so all heavy weapons can be transported easily and rapidly.

    This is a good buy. LM will offer reliable support for the planes as well, becasue contract mean something in the west – unless off course uncle Sam decides to intervene.

    Congratulations India! A wise choice. The C-17 is a tough, dependable heavy, and our IAF pilots will absolutely love to fly it. Happy landings! When will these com in?

    To the guy who said 400 mill for one plane is fukin mad…

    Its actually around 300 mill each if u subtract the 1.12 billion set aside for other facilities and parts etc.
    A fighter jet costs around 100 mill to make so therefore this price is reasonable.

    Remember that America is far more professional compared to the Russian scum who always rip us off.

    Take it, its now going to be a Globemaster scam after 2G. This government led by sonia should not handle purchases above Rs:1. & civil society should become part of the committee…!!

    It will sound odd, but I have a better idea. Why not give Pakistan 1 billion $ aid and become their friends instead of ploughing 100s of billions of $s in this white elephant called defense? Can we afford and sustain such high defense expenditure when more than 80% of our people are malnourished or almost half the population is living below poverty line? The type of absolute poverty that you witness in India does not exist even in sub saharan Africa.

    Will the C17 feature newer cockpit features borrowed from the 777 or 787 or will it retain the older cockpits?
