Dear fellow countrymen, I was thinking that as our country is advancing towards military development and we are developing our own stealth fighter, we must involve in a couple of close allies to speed up the project. We all know what it is like whenever DRDO, HAL, ADA or any other government agency embarks on a project alone. Arjun and Tejas are living examples. We should continue developing the entire AMCA ourselves with our knowledge but if it involves in foreign allies, it would mean: 1) A strong strategic base reiterating our foreign policy 2) Faster work as partners would be keen to induct the fighter incase our government becomes slow--they would act as accelerators 3) Singapore and Israel are both strategically beneficial for us--- Israel is one of the strongest technological contributor to our military while Singapore is one of the top 5 allies in the Indian Ocean Regions. There are two reasons why I mentioned Singapore and Israel specifically: 1- both the countries have warm ties with us 2- they don't pose any strategic threat to us even in long term 3- they are safe enough to be given our source codes to modify their versions of MCA as they want The benefits these two coutnries have would be: *) Israel was recently rumored to be rejected for the F-15 Silent Eagle; Russia isn't that close with them while European weapons are too expensive for their small defense budget. So they can get reinforcements for their F-35s that they will receive from USA replacing their older F-15 'Neshers'. If they join the AMCA program, it will strengthen our ties with them, we can share some of their advanced know-how in exchange for giving them access to source codes and also mend our recent diplomatic blunder that our government made by condemning Israeli action (As a neutral country, our government could have remained silent and refused to comment). *) Singapore has aquired latest F-15s but needs to replace its F-16s in the near future. They are a financially well off country and also an advanced technological hub having strong military ties with us. Asking them to join the project would mean additional technical know-how, better inter-operability and SAF earning themselves a good stealth fighter at reasonable cost effectiveness.
