France intends to give India 31 Jaguar fighter-bomber

37
According to the French online edition “The Point”, Negotiations are underway between Paris and New Delhi on the donation of the SEPECAT Jaguar fighter-bomber to India.



As previously mentioned by the American edition of Defense News, it is a question of the 31 machine, which is in conservation (apparently in poor condition) based on the storage and disposal of Chateaudan. Their residual value is currently less than 300 thousand euros.
Jaguar currently operated only in India. Their fleet includes 105 units, the French gift will allow the machine to be maintained in good condition due to cannibalization. Paris will be able to get rid of the aircraft, which can not be stored in the package for a long time.

The aircraft was developed jointly by Britain in the 1960-ies in the framework of the joint venture SEPECAT and removed from the military force of the French Air Force in 2005 year. By this time, the fighter managed to take part in combat operations during the Gulf War and the Bosnian conflict.

      "and Rafali shoved"
      In fact, the “Rafal” is a great plane and bypassed the MiG in all respects.

        “Rafal” bypassed MiG only in one point: “made in France”, which was implied before the start of the tender, and was not particularly hidden by the Indians who needed a non-Russian aircraft and access to non-Russian aviation technology, purely for general development.

          Yes, I also read that the Indians wanted to bring down the price of MiG

            I must say that the MiG-35 is very expensive, and according to the criterion, price-quality is inferior to the Sukhoi heavy fighters, although it is somewhat cheaper.

      I thought the same thing. It’s easier to give India than to deal with recycling))

        that's it, that only 36, and I had in mind:
        The supply agreement for 36 Rafale fighters was signed in January 2016. This transaction is a palliative decision designed to partially offset the failure of the MMRCA tender, which provided for the purchase of 126 fighters in the amount of $ 10 billion.

    '' Fear Danians bringing gifts ''!
    Why are they generous? Is recycling expensive? Or political overtones?
    Is cheese free?

    Maintaining cars, apparently, is more expensive than giving. Now it will be India's concern. They still need to be restored and try to exploit (why?). With the existing accident rate in the Indian Air Force, this is just a song, statistics will obviously worsen.

    India is already a global landfill. Of course, where else should aircraft be thrown away.

    After all, it is written in black and white for what these machines of India are for. For cannibalism. To maintain the airworthiness of those 105 "Jaguars." which they have. And it is quite possible the deal is mutually beneficial for both parties. Plus, this will give certain preferences to France for the future. In cases you can always hint about the "gift" ....

    And how many airplanes do we rot on conservation under the open sky? It would be better to give it to us like that, at least! And it costs us nothing, and support to the ally. (I'm talking about really old Mig-21, Mig-27 aircraft, for example.)

    withdrawn from the French Air Force in 2005

    It turns out that the newest of them expired by 2005. And after 12 years of decay, they decided to get rid, pushing them to India. Generous gift
