MMRCA - BAE Systems may cut Thyphoon price

Source : Reuters/IDRW

British defence company BAE Systems is looking at all options to win back a $20 billion tender with the Indian air force, the company’s chief executive told the Financial Times on Tuesday.

“I will be discussing with our partners what we do next. In my view, all options are on the table,” BAE Chief Executive Ian King was quoted by the FT as saying. 

India preferred a bid from France’s Dassault aviation last month, after competing with BAE to secure a 126 aircraft contract.

Dassault’s Rafale fighter jet undercut BAE’s Eurofighter Typhoon, an Indian government source told Reuters when the contract was agreed.

The FT cited King as saying BAE was considering reducing the price of the Typhoon, but needed to consult with its partners in Germany, Italy and Spain on the best options open.


  1. Rafael armed between 100kms to 300kms range missiles will really counter balance Pakistan & china as 4th+ gen & 5th gen aircraft's wont matter much but the weapon loaded on the aircraft.
    India will stand a better chance as it will have missiles from France,Israel,Russia as to reverse engineered by china.

  2. Rafael the 4th+ gen aircraft will counter balance the Chinese j20 5th gen aircraft as both will have the same features.
    Weapon load will be crucial for Indian air force Rafael as it will load missiles from Israel,Russia & France,with the range from 100 to 300kms range
