    India To Evaluate Rafale for Navy

    NEW DELHI — In an expected move, the Indian government has directed the Navy to undertake detailed briefings with Dassault Aviation regarding the Rafale aircraft.



    A French Rafale fighter aircraft is catapulted off the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. The Indian Navy will take a look at a purchase of the naval Rafale.


    An Indian Defence Ministry source said the government wants commonalities between logistics and spares for fighters with the Navy and Air Force.

    A detailed briefing on Rafale for the Indian Navy is planned here for Jan. 29, he said, but declined to comment if India will buy Rafales for the Navy as well.

    A Navy official said the service needs 54 fighter aircraft but refused to say if Rafale has been shortlisted.

    Meanwhile, French President Francois Hollande will arrive in India Jan. 24 along with French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian to sign the protocol agreement (an inter-governmental agreement ) on purchase of 36 Rafales and a formal agreement will be signed in New Delhi Jan. 25.

    Last week, India's National Security Adviser Ajit Doval flew to Paris to give final approval on the protocol agreement and to finalize the offsets and weapon package.

    Besides providing 36 Rafale fighters over three years, Dassault Aviation will also set up new facilities for Rafale aircraft at two Indian Air Force bases.

    The MoD source added that the entire deal, including weapons package, would cost over $9 billion. But he gave no time frame when the final contract will be signed.

    The governments of India and France have been working on the Rafale deal since April under which France will provide an offset of under 50 percent.

    Funding of the 36 Rafale fighters will be a big challenge, said another MoD source.

    The funding time line has not been decided yet, he added.

    The Indian MoD is also drafting new guidelines under which the French defense companies involved will have to pay penalties if spares are not available or performance is unsatisfactory.

    Don't know about the Tejaz but your azz definitely seems aflame.

    Can you stay on topic please and not troll incessantly? There is a separate Tejas thread where you can vent your ample spleen.

    It is bait for final price negotiation --If India ever built nuclear powered carrier by 2030 then it will be F-35 on them

    By the way,Tejas have 2 naval version with LEVCON which helps reduce drag of compound delta wing at sub sonic speed---Tejas, Mig29 will be based on two of current India's ACC--

    They envy Tejas agility, swift turns, vertical lift off--Feel sorry for their chinese JF17
    which despite having produced 65+pieces of block 1,II is faltering in comparison to Tejas trainer pre FOC version

    Envy, along with sloth (which the J17 seams to have in ample measure), is one of the original sins.

    The obsession with JF-17 seems to run deep with our Indian guests. I will raise the on topic question again; Why go for super expensive Rafale if you have what per your tall claims seems to be a 4.5 gen fighter already. You can buy 8 Tejaz for every Rafale isn't it?

    The obsession with what's there in our pockets and how we choose to spend it runs deep in the azzes of some of our Pakistani friends.

    A very dehati aurat trait.

    As a Pakistani and a senior member of this board its my duty to refute false claims and misinformation. Nobody here cares what you have in your pockets or what you don't except for you. We are not the ones making tall claims about LCA being a 4.5+ gen fighter.

    Tejas MK1 is 4generation aircraft
    it will never be 4.5 gen but MK1A ll mature into 4+ gen beast.

    The lead ballast of 250kg will b occupied with ifr probe
    and heavier aesa radar. 400kg weight cut from landing geae will improve TWR.

    TATAs and other big industry must gear up to set up mass production facilities to churn out dozens of fighters, attack helicopters, tanks, frigates, submarines, artillery guns, and missiles.

    For all of the above, there MUST be an Indian version, which we control completely and are not dependent on a second nation for. Regardless of what foreign versions we may also buy and deploy in parallel.

    In a war, it will be the difference between a stalemate and crushing the enemy.

    And make no mistake, a crushing defeat is long overdue.

    Cheers, Doc
