    Hi , I hope i already asked the same question but i haven't got exact replies for that , I want to Know the major Differences in Indian Version P-8 and United states P-8 :confused:

    P-8 is such a prestigious project US Navy has made its presence with P-8A along with other Air crafts at Dubai Air Show 2013 , Then why Indian P-8I has not been taken to show..

    Please if any one have a clear comparison of P-8I Vs P-8A .. People who want an Over view about P-8A can see this

    I think I have asked the same question earlier... Both Indian Navy and US Navy has own versions of P8 Manufactured by Boeing ,

    P -8I ~ India
    P 8A ~ US

    US Navy has given Main Priority for P 8A at Dubai Air Show in Q4 of 2014 , But Indian Version of Poseidon has not much give as P 8A..

    Here i want to know that are there any Major differences in both of this...

    Few details about P 8A : P-8A Poseidon Maritime Surveillance Aircraft - Naval Technology

    Apart from this, the communication suite and data links would be different. The radar might be a downgraded export variant.

    Fourth P-8I maritime patrol aircraft delivered to India
    Boeing has delivered the fourth P-8I maritime patrol aircraft to India, which the aviation company described as a milestone.

    In all India has placed orders for eight P-8I maritime aircraft.

    The latest state-of-the-art maritime patrol aircraft departed from Boeing Field in Seattle and arrived May 21 at Naval Air Station Rajali.

    “This marks an important milestone — the halfway-point for P-8I deliveries to India,” Dennis Swanson, BDS vice president in India, on Saturday said.


    “The programme’s success in the past year is really a testament to the great work between Boeing, the Indian Navy and industry,” he said in a release.

    Based on the company’s Next-Generation 737 commercial airplane, the P-8I is the Indian Navy variant of the P-8A Poseidon that Boeing has developed for the US Navy.

    “The Indian Navy is putting the first three P-8Is through their paces operationally, and the P-8I delivered today will begin flight trials in the coming months,” Leland Wight, Boeing P-8I programme manager, said.

    The P-8I incorporates not only India-unique design features, but also India-built subsystems that are tailored to the country’s maritime patrol requirements, Boeing said.

    In order to efficiently design and build the P-8I and the P-8A, the Boeing-led team is using a first-in-industry, in-line production process that draws on its Next-Generation 737 production system, the statement said.
