Ozair wrote:Not sure it would be a wise acquisition, not only because there are no Gripens C/D available, but used F-16s have won multiple competitions over the Gripen lately. Additionally there are more regional F-16 operators, likely improving integration and training.
Ozair wrote:Bit early for that, nothing has been ordered, it is just a news report on a DND finding. As already indicated they still need to allocate funding which is not easy right now for an acquisition this size.
