    NEW DELHI: Even as controversy has erupted on the transfer of eight F 16s to Pakistan by the US, Delhi has been considering a proposal to manufacture thefighter jetsunder the 'Make in India' initiative.

    In several recent meetings, including a high-level interaction in November last year in Washington, the aircraft have been offered for local production - both to meet Indian requirements and for exports.

    TheLockheed Martin(LM) manufactured F 16 is one of the several fighters that has been proposed to be manufactured in India and is being actively pushed by Washington, senior officials told ET. It is also understood that LM had even raised the possibility of local manufacture during the meeting of one of its top executives with Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year.

    India has showed its displeasure at the recent decision by Washington to transfer eight of the Block 52 variants of the fighter to Pakistan. It is still unclear on what impact this would have on proposals to manufacture US origin jets in India - defence giant Boeing has also shown keen interest in building F/A 18 Super Hornet fighters under theMake in Indiaplan.

    The offer to make the F 16 in India was for a more advanced variant of the fighter that is being sold to Pakistan and was termed as the F 16 IN Super Viper. The aircraft was in contention of the now scrapped medium multirole combat aircraft contract for the Indian air force but was disqualified on technical grounds.

    Besides the F/A 18 Super Hornet and the F 16IN Super Viper, the Indian government is considering at least two more proposals to make fighter jets in India. One offer on the table is from Sweden's SAAB to transfer the Gripen fighter line to India. Another is a proposal by Airbus to create a 'Eurofighter City' in India that would produce its Eurofighter jet and generate thousands of jobs.

    Ooooooo Hahahahahahahaha Didn't know 8 aircrafts could be such a source of Joy and Laughter for us at PDF...

    and here we were thinking what difference would a mere 8 aircrafts make? I stand corrected... Imagine when they touchdown on our airbases... they will be pissing in their dhotis and in their Susu 30mki s

    :D

    If that's case china operates even more numbers of flankers than india

    And if this deal is actually commenced it will be for latest F-16 block 60 which offered in mmrca

    Ps: this fake because the boeing offered us F-18SH under MII

    Well the news is probably fake.. Its a hit job surely.. Bcz sentiments are against USA suddenly, some company wants to kill its competitors ..

    I am betting Saab has put this up smartly.. So that it in effect scuttles the F16/F18 idea completely..

    Notice here the 2 things.
    If its about USA why mention Saab discreetly in last paragraph and in the info graphic..

    Notice that mentioned other jet is EF a twin engined Rafale competitor versus single engined Saab and F16..
    So its clear who is behind this paid news..

    As for F16 in India.. It brings no technology rather I am sure whether its Gripen or F16 both will kill LCA program.. So we cannot be thinking about any single engine fighter from abroad.. a big NO... Light category is LCA Tejas.. GOI should make it clear once and for all..

    The news reaction from my side can be gauged with few gifs like these below
    Simpsons.gif
    The idea of India buying F16s

    Do not touch.gif
    We warning against buying F16s and if we still buy then...

    and lastly

    fake body.gif

    F16IN will make us have a fake impression of a fake well built healthy body.. It failed MMRCA contest... that should be enought to throw 16/18s both out..


    If GOI wants to talk seriously for EF City as i said few days back about MII bid by EF especially with Germany and UK backing it then its a counter to Rafale MII and put pressure...

    Anything from frontline USA be it F16/F18 or F35, its a disaster for India sureshot..
