    I see here some bloggers (disguised) are doing only document review, instead of concentrating on the news.

    Proof has been made that Reddy's accusations were false, now this phony should be investigated and prosecuted.

    as already mentioned the rafale deal will not be signed before 2014 general elections, so this news is of no use.

    Actually, HAL put much monney for extend factory for build the rafale production , the 18 first rafale must be delivered before 2017, that mean production start in 2013. the next 30 would be produced by India with a strong Dassault support, the other 80, by India alone, they are now two standard, the French standard and Indian Standard, they can make all evolution they want on it.
    The main diffrence of rafale iwth F35 and eurofighter is the high potential evolution. F35 is to complex and can be fast obsolet, eurofighter is to limited because its design concept of air-air interceptor. it is to poor in multirole, to heavy, no aesa, bad bomber, no navy version, no nuke strike, no recce, no war electronic, no sead, no cas.
    For what i know, negociation go very fast. That can be signed at end year,its look possible. Since i follow, India had always respected its timing.

    The concerned MP says that he is still not satisfied by the reply.How can one MP hold to ransom the defense and security of India? There should be a probe as to which lobby the MP is acting.It is improbable as to how the MP will have expertise on such a complex and technical matter conducted in secrecy by the Ministry and IAF without the support of vested interests.

    Reddy shall be expelled from Telgu Desam Party immediately. I am NEVER going to vote for Telgu Desam Party unless Reddy is expelled for selling our defense to lobbyists.

    A ver good news for IAF as it's active fighter squadron is depleting very fast. What IAF has now 100+ age old Mig-21, Useless Mig-23/27 and Jaguars (4 Sqdons Jags do not have even Radars..unthinkable today)
    apart from 100+ Su-30 +50 M2k+60 MIG-29 (Not sure what is the availability % of these ones)..and yet IAF has a task of protecting 100+ crores of it's citizen 3,287,590 Sq KM of land and 2,305,143 Sq.KM of Sea…

    and we have been spending billions of USDs to become 1st in Arm Imports..yet the situation of IAF is visible…

    What will Indian greedy Politicians and MOD Bureaucrats will do now..and to what depth ,they want to take our country now?

    Mysoora Reddy was kicked out of Congress and he then joined TDP. Now he's been kicked out of TDP after he sensed the wind was changing direction in AP politics and joined YSRC. What a rat !
    The MoD should stop wasting time and energy by not paying attention to squeaking rats like him – period.
    Get on with the contract negotiations so that the country can have the equipment it needs to protect our country !

    Mysoora Reddy has jumped from TDP to YSRC. YSRC is home to all the corrupt and incompetent fools. THIS FOOL SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR WASTING THE NATION'S TIME. HE MAY HAVE BEEN PAID OFF BY EADS!!!

    Three Rafale's lost in less than a year.

    Do IAF know what they are about to buy? Seems we are buying a Mig-21 clone …

    This is the latest addition (Rafale M24) :

    @pankaj: With all respect, maybe you were trying to make an worthwhile point, but it is impossible to understand what you have written.

    Check database, 3 eurofighters crashed, 139 F18 get heavy damages or crashed ( +15 crash) and the F18 is a super jet fighter, i have more consideration for the hornet than the eurofighter, the navy version is more dangerous and increase the risk for the pilot to get crash or colision. That explain why Eurofighter make never a navy version, it dont have the know how and it must review all the jet design. The tejas had the merit to do it and not the eurofighter.

    How many tejas divisions are currently operable in IAF?

    How many export customers do the tejas have to date?

    Hey,
    make shure to negotiate hard; Dassault have just offered the Rafale to Swiss AF for precisely the same cost as SAAB Gripen E/F, 22 AC same pricing! Here is a opportunity for IAF to slash the asking price by 40-50%, just relate to the new Swiss offer! A bargain for sure…
