India likely to select fighter plane under 'Make in India' by year-end: Manohar Parrikar

NEW DELHI: India is likely to select by the year-end at least one fighter aircraft that will be manufactured by the private sector under the 'Make in India' process for supply to IAF, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has said.

He said that there may be one or two more jet fighter plants, either operational or in the process of being set up, in India in the next three years or so.

not necessarily! though the process is supposed to be short as all the comparisons have been done.

‘Made in India’ F-16s on radar, thanks to FDI

U.S. firm Lockheed Martin may make use of liberalised norms

American military manufacturer Lockheed Martin could soon be producing F-16 fighters in an assembly line based in India, taking advantage of the new liberalised FDI conditions announced by the government on Monday.

If the legendary American fighter is deployed with the Indian Air Force after local production, it would signal a historic shift in India’s military posture that could dramatically affect the country’s relations with China, Pakistan and other nations. It could also draw much criticism to the fact that India was inducting a fighter that first took to the skies more than 40 years ago.

At least two senior officials in crucial ministries handling the issue confirmed that the proposal for setting up an assembly line for F-16 fighters in India was discussed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the U.S. earlier this month.

An official said the negotiations with the French government for the purchase of 36 Rafale fighters haven’t succeeded yet in securing a competitive price. “Lockheed Martin, on the other hand, is keen to close down its F16 production facility in the U.S. Talks are on to invite the company to shift its F16 production line, lock, stock and barrel, to India,” he said.



Yes Rafale looks dicey! But again, F-16 facility won't be coming any time soon. Maybe we will see both, but what about cost of both??

What has worked best for us is finding our own way. ISRO's case is an example. As for thrust vectoring, we already have it in SU-30. Though, it won't be possible to incorporate it in Made in India F-16. Also, read somewhere that Cobra is not possible on F-16, not because it cannot do, but because it is essentially a stall, which its systems won't allow.
