    Maybe PAF pilots should be required to complete a few relevant engineering courses before being appointed as test pilots

    Hi,

    Two chinese & one european vendor competing for this contract---. Must be a tooth & nail fight---.

    The Paf really does not have to disclose who the winner is at this time---it can wait when the aircraft is ready for the installation---.

    Hi,

    Absolutely---have 2 + 2---but then integration of two systems and then mating weapons to them---that would not be easy---.

    Adopting two systems just for the sake of it will add to complexity and create logistic issues. Just choose the best option and equip all planes with it, why go for for both the best and second best?

    Hi,

    It will stay with one system overall---. The weapons are already in place---integrated and used in service---. Technicians are trained in service---maintenance & operational use---.

    Italy will fight tooth and nail to get this contract---it will have to come up with a special package and deal---.
