It seems we are going for them only ,they are heavily modified with respect to Indian Navy Requirements.

The environment with existing platforms like P8I gives it an added advantage.

Did the F-18 landed yet? As for the payload, you can't compare things on paper. When the Rafale or the F-18 takes off from same jump-jet type carrier, how much will they take?

Will be good for India to go with the US/France/West, since Russia is a sinking ship anyway. This deal if signed will only deepen US and India's ties even more. Now that there's heavy embargoes imposed on Russia it will be increasingly difficult to signed sophisticated weapon import deals from Russia . So best to maintain neutral relation with Russia
