US Dangles The F-35 Carrot!


www.ibnlive.com




Unmatched stealth and super cruise - the Indian Air Force got a glimpse of the future of air combat in an American presentation on its next-generation fighter, the F-35, on Tuesday.
There were indications that the US is willing to share this new weapon with India, but it's clearly a carrot for giving the older F-16 a leg up in the Indian tender for 126 fighter aircraft.

And the icing on the cake is that India is being told that it can have the new generation stealth fighter for the price of an F-16!

Now is that going to be a good bargain? A quid pro quo that seems to me to be a raw deal. After all India would be investing over $12 Billion in these fighters which will be rendered obsolete by a similarly-priced aircraft? Does this make sense?
