India will assure UK we will not sell anti ship missiles along with Tejas, getting easy UK approval.
Without anti ship missiles what Argentina will do with Tejaj ? Just use for flypast during national days ??😛
Argentina must buy which can use as anti ship missiles carrier for any future event.

Argentina reveals talks with India on Tejas.
Argentine Air Force chief said a new supersonic fighter was an "absolute" priority
Web Desk
Updated: October 17, 2021 13:17 IST

Last month, Pakistani media outlets were abuzz with reports that Argentina had decided to purchase the JF-17 fighter jet. The JF-17 fighter was originally developed by China, with Pakistan contributing funds and becoming its primary customer and production partner.
While China has not purchased the aircraft, it is the Pakistan Air Force's main fighter, with over 100 aircraft having entered service over the past decade. The Pakistan Air Force claims the JF-17 was used in the skirmish against India over Kashmir in February 2019. The aircraft has also been exported to Myanmar and Nigeria.
However, days after the reports, the Argentine ministry of defense announced it had only sought $664 million for acquiring a new fighter, but had not selected a preferred aircraft yet.
Last week, Infodefensa, a Spanish language website focussing on South American military news, interviewed Brigadier Xavier Julian Isaac, the chief of the Argentine Air Force. Isaac told Infodefensa that the Argentine Air Force had received offers for new fighters from Russia and China, but was also awaiting proposals from the US and India.

Isaac told Infodefensa that Argentina had an engagement with India, "which is wanting to offer us the Tejas, but we are just in the initial talks". Isaac said Argentina had received offers for supply of the JF-17 from China and the MiG-29 and MiG-35 from Russia.

Isaac revealed the Argentine Air Force wants to receive all offers for a new aircraft by the end of this year and by the "first quarter of next year" decide on a platform and financing for it.

Supersonic woes

Argentine retired its last supersonic fighter aircraft, French-designed Mirage III and V jets, in 2015. These aircraft were first inducted before the Falklands War of 1982 against the UK.

Isaac told Infodefensa that the search for a fourth-generation supersonic fighter was an "absolute" priority for the Argentine Air Force. Isaac also emphasised that any deal with a foreign company would have to include industrial cooperation with Fábrica Argentina de Aviones "Brigadier San Martín"
(FAdeA), the country's state-owned aircraft maker. Isaac said this would involve offset agreements, which would mandate the chosen foreign supplier invest a portion of the contract value in the customer country. Such offset deals aim at creating employment and spurring technology growth.

The Argentine Air Force had been seeking to induct new supersonic fighters for decades, but has been thwarted by a combination of the country’s precarious financial condition and British pressure on arms companies.


Ejection seat veto?

Over the past decade, Argentina's attempts to buy aircraft such as the Saab Gripen from Sweden and later the FA-50 trainer/light fighter from South Korea were, reportedly, scuttled by British pressure. Both aircraft use British equipment, including ejection seats built by UK-based Martin Baker. Interestingly, JF-17 jets in Pakistan Air Force service use Martin Baker ejection seats.

The Tejas also uses a Martin Baker ejection seat called the MK16 IN16 GS Tejas. Other notable British-supplied equipment on the Tejas include its air-to-air refuelling probe and quartz radome, supplied by UK-based Cobham.

In 2014, Argentina's then defence minister Agustin Rossi said the country intended to buy 24 Gripen fighters from Sweden. About 30 per cent of the components of the Gripen, including its radar and ejection seat, were of British origin. In 2015, Saab ruled out facilitating a Gripen sale to Argentina, noting it was not involved in any discussions to remove British-origin content from the aircraft.

Severe heart burn comments here. Regardless of Argentina selecting Tejas or not, the fact that Tejas has been appearing in potential buyer's list everywhere, irritates the fan boys on PDF who claim it can travel only TATA trucks and is a samosa. It's fun to see their frustration through their comments.
It was shoved to Argentina. They never bother to invite Tejas.

Tejas is twice as expensive as JF-17 and with zero reliability. IAF rejected it at least six times. Why would Argentina even consider Tejas? Do you think Argentinians are stupid?

Why don’t you try to sell it to US Navy as a replacement for F-18?

Very dumb idea to buy an unproven jet which has much of its parts sourced from allies of the UK. the engine is American, along with many other components being british. Any conflict with the UK over falklands will result in spares being jeopardized. would be better off buying Russian or Chinese.

Argentina should grab this golden opportunity, I am sure the UK would happily finance these for the Argentinian Airforce.
This will be a win win win situation for all three
