LOL.Another useless import......
Will make Dalals & fan boys very happy
Title is misleading it is still a wishlist for both PM to get this through lets hope the deal is inked as it all depends on whether Shinzo Abe had a go ahead from its domestic stakeholders (political and non-political) and relevant constitutional bottlenecks from he lands here.India is buying 12 units of the ShinMayWa US 2i amphibious aircraft. Deal valued at USD 1.3 billion.
I hate it when some people don't appreciate the complexity of Geo-politics.LOL.
This is a landmark deal.
There is a lot more to this deal than just the planes themselves, this deal is VERY significant in that is is the first time Japan has sold explicitly military equipment to a nation since 1945 and just to get to this point Japan has had to entirely rethink its own laws and priorities.
In that sense it is foundation for FAR greater things
Haha.. I Was waiting for such press release from China :blah:India, Japan cannot challenge China: Chinese daily
India, Japan cannot challenge China: Chinese daily
The Indian navy could use the US-2i for a number of roles, such asCan these carry ASW equipment or anti ship missiles? If yes they will be force multipliers.
