I was a teenager just getting into the dating game when the original MMRCA was ongoing, now I'm a father and this zee tv drama is still ongoing.

Wouldn't be surprised if this sh!t is still ongoing by the time I'm a grandfather and the IAF is down to paper planes.

Honestly. I started visiting this forum in 2005/2006 and it was a topic that generated enormous debate.

It's still being dragged after a decade and a half.

And what about the punch you guys got on 9th March 2022? 👊

If that was a punch, then Feb 2019 was a Rock Choke Slam coupled with a Stone Cold Steve Austin Stunner

This is how Indian air force should look in the future to counter both Pakistan and China.

750 total fighter jets. Around 42 squadron needed as said by IAF chief.

400- F-35
150- Rafale
200- F-15

All SU-30MKI should be replaced by new version of the F-15.

You're lowering the average IQ of the entire country. Just check what you typed before you post it. FFS man..

Amid a big push for the Aatmanirbhar Bharat scheme by the PM Narendra Modi-led government, the Indian Air Force is planning to acquire 114 fighter jets of which 96 would be built in India, and rest 18 would be imported from the foreign vendor chosen for the project.

The Indian Air Force has plans of acquiring 114 Multirole Fighter Aircraft (MRFA) under ‘Buy Global and Make in India’ scheme under which Indian companies would be allowed to partner with a foreign vendor.

"Recently, the Indian Air Force held meetings with the foreign vendors and asked them about the way they would carry out the Make in India project," government sources told ANI.

As per the plan, after the initial 18 aircraft are imported, the next 36 aircraft would be manufactured within the country and the payments would be made partially in foreign currency and Indian currency, the sources said.

The last 60 aircraft would be the main responsibility of the Indian partner and the government would make payments only in Indian currency, the sources said.

The payment in Indian currency would help the vendors to achieve the over 60 per cent ‘Make-in-India’ content in the project, the sources said.

Global aircraft manufacturers including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Saab, MiG, Irkut Corporation and Dassault Aviation are expected to participate in the tender.

The Indian Air Force has to rely heavily on these 114 fighter jets for maintaining its superiority over the neighboring rivals Pakistan and China.

The 36 Rafale aircraft procured under emergency orders helped immensely in maintaining an edge over the Chinese during the Ladakh crisis which started in 2020 but the numbers are not enough and more such capability would be required by it.

The force has already placed orders for 83 of the LCA Mk 1A aircraft but it still requires a higher number of capable aircraft as a large number of MiG 21 series planes have either been phased out or are on their last legs.

The fifth-generation Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft project is moving ahead at a satisfactory pace but it will take a lot of time to be able to be inducted in an operational role.

The IAF is also looking for a cost-effective solution for its fighter jet requirement as it wants a plane that is low on operational cost and gives more capability to the service, the sources said.

The IAF is highly satisfied with the operational availability of the Rafale fighter jets and wants similar capability in its future aircraft.

Not again!

Just scrap it and buy off Rafales and LCAs.
nope.
These should be stealth jets or a waste of money.
Cheerleaders are already touting 6th gen Chinese jets, when we know the quality of 4th gen Chinese jets. Forget 5th gen. Their is a reason why only stalwarts of the world have bought Chinese jets till date.
The reason China fights so much with its mouth rather than retake Taiwan is because they are fully aware of their capabilities.
Dont get influenced by the Chinese or their concubines, see what happened to the Chinese chip industry once usa tightened controls on export of chip manufacturing equipment to China.
The only big advantage China has that its commie government is not at all answerable to its people. Millions of Chinese dead soldiers and civilians, and they won't blink a eye , as long as some obtuse target is met.
