India’s air force has completed the technical evaluations of the contenders for its medium multi-role combat aircraft competition. And, just as we reported few weeks ago, the Dassault Rafale (the very nice looking French fighter that you see in the video above) is still in the mix despite media reports to the contrary.
Which just goes to show that there is still a long way to go in this competition, and any reports that someone has been kicked out must be taken with a pinch of a salt – unless you hear it here first!
Just a note to the companies that are competing for the MMRCA and other Indian military contracts. The country’s defence minister AK Antony has reiterated that India is eager to wipe away the stain of corruption that has plagued it in previous military deals. So keep your hands clean – you never know who may be watching you.
