    Yes it seems expensive,but when you see what does this deal include,that seems about right for the price.
    I wonder where are @sgarg and @pmaitra as you can see,even with the mistral saga,we sell our stuff. :peace: :peace:

    @Gabriel92, congrats!

    You are mistaken about my stand. I never said Rafale was bad. I said that procurement process was manipulated. This error is primarily caused by Indian officials that processed the tender.

    Too much time has elapsed and prices have changed, so the tender will be cancelled (as no party is willing to adhere to the terms of the tender).

    I think it's the missiles and spare parts that are making this deal look expensive. At $1.2 million stormshadow is an expensive weapon system, same goes for AASM.

    But as I said, good for Egypt and for France.:thumb:
