The price per aircraft has been brought down by the government. So it is one more feather in Modi's cap.

Lost track of this after the back and forth with this deal. What was the final price we agreed to? Can you share before and after figures? Are we bringing any manufacturing to India with this?

Heard Modi took out the middlemen and negotiated directly with French Prez/Rafale. This is where congressis were making money, and make huge sums in commission.

Awesome, looks like few ministers are super efficient and doing their job like a duty. Parrikar definitely a shining jewel in Modi's crown. Sadly, Rajnath seems like a disappointment.

Rafale will be used for nuclear strike just like Mirage 2000 is being used now because France is the only country ready to provide spare parts and maintainence for nuclear armed jets

Re: Rafale deal on friday ; Advanced Scalp air to surface missile and Meteor air to air missile to be integrated

The only thing I am not clear about in the whole saga. The earlier plan was to get more than a 100 fighters (albeit of a different variety - mediums and multi roles?) this has now changed to get the 36 jet fighters. Are we looking at a gap here that still needs more work to plug? Not denying the positives of the current deal. Its great that we have finally signed it on better terms. well done team!

Should we start looking for - whats next?

next is long drawn out discussions to buy either F 18 super hornet fighterjets or F 16 super viper fighterjets from USA . We will buy 150 of them as they are less advanced hence less costly than rafale and we can afford to buy them in greater numbers . their cost will further be lessened as they will be manufactured in india---both boeing ( which makes f 18 ) and lockheed ( which makes f 16 ) have promised to move their entire production lines to india if india agrees to buy significant numbers of fighters . that's because USA is not going to order any more of those aircraft anyway .

India should go with latest Gripen fighters... Its a more modern design. Also there will be less arm wrangling by the swedes when compared to americans
