“We firmly believe that there are all possibilities for the production of F / A-18 under the auspices of the program“ Do it in India ”, the head of the American company Dennis Muhlenburg told a newspaper correspondent. “Boeing is ready to create industrial potential here, to organize partner supply chains, technical support, design and production.”

      India as a child .... Collects military model designer from different countries! One detail will break or become obsolete ... You can throw it away! In the West, of course, everything is brilliant and beautiful ... In vain they spend money! As a result, they will remain with nothing but a ruined country .. Such is my opinion! hi

        Well no. To be continued, see.
        India wants production and only always achieves it. The proposed screwdriver assembly is the next step and the French will fly to a different situation. If the French offer an even more interesting option, then the move will be Boeing.

        F / A-18 "Super Hornet" (born F / A-18 Super Hornet) - American carrier-based fighter-bomber and attack aircraft.
        Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas ...

        And where is Boeing?

          Because the McDonnell Douglas company (which once developed and launched the Hornets) was bought by Boeing ...

      I don't even know if Boeing will be happy. Hindus in many countries of the world have worn out all their nerves about contracts. Moreover, we are talking about a super hornet, it is more expensive than just a hornet.

      Yeah ... exactly as long as the traditionally high quality of the Indian assembly does not begin to undermine its reputation.

      We have already gone through this with Indian Su-30s: first they write in large print "Russian Su-30MKI fighter crashed due to poor-quality assembly"- and they throw all the bumps on Russia. And then it turns out that the plane and the engines were assembled in India - but this is no longer of interest to anyone.
      Our factories were lucky that the Indian Minister of Defense, as part of another intra-Indian showdown between the armed forces and the military industry, ran into industrialists and gave out numbers on engine defects caused by poor-quality local assembly and maintenance.

    The US wants to make India a military dependent country on the United States (at least partially), in addition, in case of conflict, they will know what to expect from F / A-18 + along the way to earn.
    Guarantees that in the event of a combat situation, the United States will simply not turn off the aircraft radar remotely no one will give.

      That is true. Mattresses are going to arm the rival of China in the region. Winning twice, China will divert large resources to deter the opponent, and of course they will squeeze the maximum dough from this. Americans do not just push the fighter, but also the construction of a full-fledged aircraft carrier, and this promises them a lot of greenery.

      For any type of weapon they are trying to push through the demand for its production on their territory. What did BOING offer them. And Brazil is trying to blow into the same pipe.

    To launch the F 18 you need a catapult, but on Indian aircraft carriers (one Russian, the other English) they are not. As soon as we appear, we will learn their secrets from the original source

      They simultaneously push through the construction of a new aircraft carrier, although they can also sell supported one, they have about 20 units. Let's see, the Indians are too capricious and unstable, like girls.

    F / A-18s are made under a catapult. India has only one of three aircraft carriers with a catapult, and that Englishman of the 50s.

      Americans are ready to transfer technology to the Indians
      catapults. For the supply of aircraft for aircraft carriers. This has already been negotiated.
      And not only steam, but also the latest electric (for "Fords"),
      which is just being brought to mind.

        And what's the point?
        They have two aircraft carriers with jumps - Vikramadya and the Vikrant under construction.
        catapults are not adapted for installation in any way.
        Remaking each will be more expensive than building a new one.
        Construction Vishal horseradish understand when it will be.

    In the 1960-70s, an arms bargain was introduced against India, and the Indians pulled out due to supplies from the USSR. Now there are no sanctions, and the Indians have successfully forgotten about those times. Well, the flag is in their hands. But Thailand seems to have decided to buy Mi -28 NE instead of Apache. So there are still smart people in the world.

    F-18 - the aircraft is surprisingly reliable.
    And its "life cycle" may end when
    tidy up the carrier version of the F-35S - the most problematic,
    as it suddenly turned out.
    Therefore, Boeing is easily ready to give licenses for its production.
    to the Indians.
