Saab Gripen had no support from Lockheed Martin..you've got it all mixed up..KAI had a lot of support from LM for it's T-50 LIFT.Yeah but,Saab gripen had a lot of support from LM whereas we had to do it on our own. Mk2 looks promising & the new design of TEDBF shows we are exalting in this department now!
Just our bureaucracy needs improvement asap!
well they are due for a mid life upgrade , they can be significantly upgraded in due time they still form the backbone of our airforce and are here to stay for long time.
Biradar , before trolling do remember that, every mig 21 crashed took away a human and affected many other lives in different ways possible.It's just a joke ... I am sorry ...mah serious troll karna nahin chahta tha..
F-15EX is not an 'upgrade' its a completely new-build plane. The internal components are very different from that of any serving F-15C.
Yeah... I meant bae system only my mistake!!Saab Gripen had no support from Lockheed Martin..you've got it all mixed up..KAI had a lot of support from LM for it's T-50 LIFT.
Saab OTOH had plenty of experience in designing fast jets, since the 1950s and didn't need support in the design aspects. But they took the help of various companies including BAe for structures, Rockwell Collins for avionics, Lear Siegler for the FBW FCS, etc. But not from Lockheed Martin.
Agreed!!I think 6 or 7 sukhois falken till date after its induction
in late ninties. This is one per 3 years for a fleet of over 200 aircraft. This is a responsible figure.
