    Dear Shiv,

    Any update on the cost of this deal??

    Where do IAF plan to base these two squadrons?

  2. 2


    Hey Shiv, any idea on whether there will be a follow on order in the future? I can't imagine 36 Rafales being enough.

  3. 3


    Shiv 1)Is there a possibility of follow on order for more Rafale,s under option clause? 2) Also when the armament package for the Rafale is going to be ordered? Can you confirm whether meteor , storm shadow is going to be ordered?

    It is black day for choosing an extremely expensive fighter which is well below the performance of F 35 and India can buy two at the price of one Rafale. I am disappointed and in one year lets have a dogfight between tejas MK 1A with Rafale and you would know what I am talking about. The French do not have the production capacity to give it in two years and every usable item would be extremely expensive to use. It would be a great idea to spend that money to have sufficiant numbers of tejas with two engines and internal weapons bay and devlop AMCA. And upgrade all the remaining fleet with spares readily available.

    The purchase of 36 Rafales was a fait accompli the day Hollande agreed to be the Chief Guest for 2016 Republic day. The real scoop would be to clarify whether Dassault will set up one Production line in India (as reported in the media) and if yes, the new numbers on Rafale or whether Snecma will help HAL enhance the Kaveri Jet engine to achieve the required thrust for Tejas. Reliance on GE engines will not help Tejas get too far.
