    Foreign Fighter jet makers eye Indian riches after scaled-back French deal

    Saab is beating a dead horse, India would be foolish to buy gripen, when tejas is being developed for a similar role and config.

    If someone else helped IAF to become Imported Air Force, now what the hell poor Parrikar do....!

    Tell IAF to order more Tejas.

    Any talks of Gripen will give a new lease of life to Congress.

    Once rejected by IAF as not being good enough to get something like Gripen in would immediately make Rahul and Kejri look like Maha-Deshbhaktas :D.

    Oh and while it was rumoured that Gripen passed the Leh tests we still need to bear in mind that Gripen lost despite the Swedes being allowed the leeway by the IAF of having their Gripen D tested when in fact the NG was to be tested.

    Broadsword: Air Force gives Gripen fighter a second chance

    Gripen E/F vs F-16 V.

    All of them 'Make in India'.

    I want the MMRCA saga in our history books:p, want the children to learn what we had to go through all these years and the mistakes made, hell it can even be a great case study from management perspective.

    @JBH22 Say what you will of the logistic problem, but 50 60 yrs down the line we'll have a hell of a aircraft museum to show off:rofl: IAF ''collector or aircrafts".
