    For last four years we have been only hearing about bids,tests etc, but no concrete action. By the time the deal gets done and the aircrfts delivered they will be somehow retired from their respective origin countries.

    Eurofighter – political support

    Rafale – Nuclear capable

    if no both…..

    F-18 – US support ' war against Pakistan'.

    The Rafale has already been chosen. The only reason why the Typhoon is in final is to make sure the Rafale is the L1.

    L1 bidder might be :
    1) Gripen NG ( sasthi, chikni, tikau)
    2) MiG 35 (reliable, not so costly)
    3) F16 IN ( Battle proven jet)
    4) F/A 18 SH (slightly expensive)
    5) Rafale (expensive but capable jet)
    6) EF typhoon ( gold plate jet)

    Our MoD needs to look very carefully at all the bids before finalizing the deal …..

    panic

    RidiculousLy short of Fighter Aircrafts, it would be a drop in an Ocean.
    "Too Little too Late".
    Why dont India opt for J.V IN Manufacturing Fighter Aircrafts,with Russia given the success of Bhramos Venture.
    Buying is not a good Long term Strategy.

    I think i am with you that the Rafale has already been chosen. I liked the high altitude capability of typhoon, at the same time i am distrustfull on anglo-german europian nexus. So i strongly believe that French r still a safe bet for India to face current world order

    i think it should be the french dassult rafale as it has a better range ,better payload and also lower in cost than eurofighter.besides that india has already been operating french dassult mirage2000 so defenitely rafale is going to have an upper hand in the race.i don't know if eurofighter typhooon is embeded with diamond or what ,its so costly ,so costly that we can even have a 5th gen fighter for that money

    info from swiss and brazil suggest eurofighter´s maintenance/ lifecycle costs are higher, which makes me think rafale has this one if the bag.
    with india and uae, as well as qatar and kuwait all looking like likely buyers, rafale looks set for it´s dose of success, even if brazil will delay it´s purchase again. typhoon is a nice plane, but when both are deemed capable and rafale is cheaper up-front and sustained, it´s a no-brainer. not to mention rafale´s compatability with the future Snecma-GTRE Son of Kaveri which will have further advantages.
    Now what i want to know is why did the ´ranking´ poll several months ago not have an option listing Rafale as number 1?

    heads up, in case you missed it buried amongst the rest of his grammatically-challenged rant: the previous commenter is apparently threatening/advocating murder of people he doesn´t like in the indian government. don´t know if that´s something you want to host on your blog.

    Piare Bhandulog,

    Anthony , MMs and Chidubhai are gonna make sure that the deal is scuttled one way or the other. Do not forget their common destiny with the Pakis and the periodic rant of Hindu Terrorism and the the famous black listing.

    So dont bother .
