point is to have lower cost aircraft for bankrupt nations. have you ever seen EAM or MAD giving replies to low level congi chaaps?what about 36 nd possibly 114 rafale...r they not good enough to replace jaguar?? i think rafale is far better aircraft in ground attack than jaguar nd mirage 2000. even IAF will always choose mirage 2000 for ground strike missions than jaguar. rafale is next genration of mirage 2000.
AMCA will outclass all fighters (in india) in different missions, so they can be replacement of any current fighter in india.
same way, we want home grown, well built machines to take care of beggar countries.
once our home grown machines get enough exercise and get stronger, we can then tackle the other ones as well.
