    I'm opening this new thread because today is the decision for the biggest defense deal in India. I will change the title heading once the winner is announced. So, please use this thread from here on for all MMRCA related issues.

    Ah, the EF tried a fast one with the escort just days before eh? As if the President has any say in this matter. Or may be they know from sources that they have won and did a victory escort!!
