But, as follows from the Indian media, so India behaves with almost any partner (or potential partner) in the military-technical sphere.
In one of the Indian newspapers, material appeared in which the government’s government demanded an explanation as to why the authorities preferred the French Rafale fighter jets to the Indian Air Force. In an English-language newspaper article The statesman says that the government made a mistake trying to hide the real value of the contract for the purchase of 36-ti French military aircraft.
In addition, the authors ask themselves: will the Indian Air Force increase its combat effectiveness? fleet 36 Rafale fighters, or is it doubtful?
The article also contains another question: if the deal really goes for the benefit of India, then why does the department not disclose all its details, first of all - the financial component - in conditions of transparency in the field of public procurement management? It is noted that in this way the government itself pushes itself into a corner, giving rise to rumors about a deal with the French.
