My point was that the first fighter to be built in has some Pakistani input in it; maybe its minute, but its nonetheless an input. And you said it you said it yourself; the first fighter to be built in India had ZERO Indian input in it.No, Gnat is. But Gnat was already built even before IAF chose it, so it cannot be compared to JF-17, which was desgined ground up using PAF specifications.
So why would India have its engineers in building the Gnat??
