India announced the requirements for France when signing a contract for the supply of Rafale fighters

25

India discloses some details of the previously concluded contact with France for the supply of Rafale fighters. It should be recalled that New Delhi and Paris signed a contract for the supply of these fighters to the Indian Air Force several years ago. The contract was partially fulfilled - several "Raphales" from France were delivered to India, where they entered service with the Air Force. At the same time, the final price of each of the French aircraft ordered by India is surprising. On the basis of the contract, it exceeded $ 200 million, which is more than two times more expensive, for example, the American F-35 (at modern prices).


The Indian media published materials stating that the most important condition on the part of the Indian authorities when concluding a contract with the French was the following: France should not supply Pakistan with air-to-air missiles and any military technology “capable of leading to a threat to India” ...

From Indian columnist Shishir Gupta:

India, when signing the contract, informed the diplomatic adviser to the President of France Emmanuel Bonnet about the requirement that when selling fighters to Qatar, Paris must ensure that no one in Pakistan can ultimately gain access to the planes of the French-made Qatari Air Force.

According to Shishir Gupta, Paris has assured the Indian authorities that it will not transfer Rafale fighter technology to Pakistan and will ensure that others do not.

Indian Reporter:

France also assured India that it is not going to transfer technology related to Meteor missiles to Pakistan, and will not take part in the modernization of Mirage III-5 fighters and Agosta-class submarines, which are in service with the army and fleet Pakistan.

In the same material, which appeared on the pages of the Hindustan Times, Shishir Gupta writes that the United States had previously given India the same assurances about F-16 fighters and missiles. The United States reportedly promised India, in exchange for military-technical contracts, not only not to transfer new missiles to Pakistan for these fighters, but also "to ensure that the Pakistani Air Force does not use previously acquired missiles against the Indian Air Force."

From the article:

But Pakistan ended up not only using American missiles against Indian Air Force planes, but also trying to hide the loss of the F-16, shot down two years ago by Abhinandan Varthaman.



It is pointed out that the United States did not keep its promises, and therefore India is wary of the promises of France.

      That is, bribes and corruption, is that what they call it? And unfair competition. Although no, "exclusive contract" wink
      100 lyamas out of 200 from the plane for loyalty and non-delivery to competitors, while without the transfer of aircraft technology to India itself - you have to try!

        you exaggerate the extent of corruption
        it is not 100 million dollars to write correctly, but 7 Arabians and 30 crores rupees.
        A completely different calico.

          USA did not keep their promises

          And there are still those who believe the promises of the United States
          To believe in Americans is not to respect yourself

    only to drown all the mistrals passing through the Indian Ocean. controlling your allies-partners is more important than confronting potential opponents.
    it turned out that the dancers are doing everything right - they are bargaining for a long time, prices are stuffed, they are breaking down - they check sellers not for the availability of technology, but for lice.

    but also tries to hide the loss of the F-16, shot down two years ago by Abhinandan Varthaman

    The Americans did not allow to recognize the loss of the F-16 from the MiG-21, otherwise it would be a shame for the whole world.

      They would have to put another Pakistan and paint the number of the shot down on it. If you haven't already.

    That is, in order to sell us something to India, first we need to sell something to Pakistan. And then India will be ready for anything to stop our deliveries to Pakistan. There it is, Mikhalych))))

    Well, the whole world has been watching the Indian circus with laughter for a long time, but this is the finish line. They officially admitted that they had given a bribe to France, and the bribe was not in exchange for a real service, but in return for a promise, the fulfillment of which India is simply physically unable to fulfill. The bottom is not just broken - they scratched to the center of the Earth

    Ask the Argentines. The unexploded Exocets sank two or three Anglican ships. Is there a clause in the treaty prohibiting the supply of missiles that will not explode? lol

    Hahaha-Hindus believed the francs-fuckers pedal, they will take the francs and help anyone who pays through "someone else's", 200 lamas for a carriage, the world has never seen such idiots, I can't even imagine how much it was possible, for example, to take a Mig35 or Su30-35 for that money given for Rafali

    It is generally difficult to find more "dumb" partners than the French. Whom did they not deceive. Indians are very naive people or very greedy)))

      Manhattan was sold for a bunch of beads in 1626
      with the proceeds they bought a ticket for a caravel and sailed to India

    The poor are raving! It seems like old dancers, but they can't find reliable partners in the USA and even more so in France! They thought that an agreement for half a bite would guarantee them the opportunity to then swing the rights to their full height! Ha-Ha! Indians will bend over and they will not say thanks, but money in front!
