Similar can be said about the naval MMRCA competition, where IN purposly did not send the RFI to Saab, because they have no carrier fighter, nor experience in developing it and even if, the Sea Gripen will not be very capable as a carrier fighter. However, when Saab asked to respond as well, they accepted it, again because they have better chances to negotiate with other competitors.
In some competition I can understand it, but in competitions like this for trainers with several competitors that would fulfill the requirments anyway, we should have made a shortlist before the trials, to not unnecessarily delay the decisions. Especially when your current trainer is grounded and your pilots can't be properly trained!
@Sancho-I second your views
We should have atleast 20 A2A refueling aircraft as 70% of them would be available for most parts.
I have a doubt about the MMRCA...........Which A/C would these replace MiG21/27/23's or will they form a new segment?
IAF had said that they will go with the High-med-low combo but now it seems that they will end up being Top heavy(Su family)!
522 >20T A/C(272MKI and 250FGFA)...126>10T(MMRCA competition winner)......40+95 Tejas(?)!!!!!
