    USA want desperate to sell military hardware to India(as well as Turkey).
    Any Sanction works to the very same effect.

    If US are applying pressure in India, not in a lifetime will India buy any US Fighter.

    LOL I hate to break it to you. Yet, odds are very good that India's next fighter will be from the US. Which, could be either the F-16 and/or Super Hornet. Honestly, could be both as the Indian Navy is also looking for a new fighter. (I wouldn't be surprised)


    As for sanction the US won't apply any to India for acquiring the S400. Which, it has made very clear. (again apples and oranges with Turkey)


    Nor, is the US "desperate" to sell Military Hardware to India. Which, is not to say it wouldn't be happy to do so. Just like anybody else.

    The modification to a previously awarded contract, announced Friday by the U.S. Department of Defense, is worth more than $85,7 million and provides for the upgrade of four MV-22 aircraft from the Block B to the Block C configuration in support of the Common Configuration Readiness and Modernization Program (CC-RAM).

    Sorry for the late posting here (story is a couple days old now)...

    The U.S. Air Forces new T-X jets could be more than just trainers, with aggressor or light-attack missions now on the table for the Boeing-made plane, the head of Air Combat Command said.

    As for the F-16 and F-35 India doesn't really have much of a choice. As it has to come up with something that it can afford. While, also something to counter future Chinese Stealth Fighters. (i.e. J-20 and J-31)


    So, odds favor India acquiring the F-16 short-term and F-35 long-term. (IMHO)
    So India can afford an obsolete F-16 at the cost of what? 65 mill a pop?
    And at the same time cannot continue to buy(PRODUCE) the MKI at the exact same price tag above.

    As the MKI will eventually get an big MLU with 117S engines, IAF will have a jet that can fly longer, with much more ordinance, which makes it that much more capabale over any F-16.
    And continue their supply chain for their already 250+ MKI's fleet.

    And btw, good luck mounting a 2.500 kg Brahmos under senter hardpoints on F-16 or F-35

    Jeez your post is getting more delusional by the day.

    More Rafale fun in India:
    An FIR against Modi is now inescapable. Surjewala said an FIR should be filed against Modi in the wake of the report of the Indian negotiation team on the pricing of the deal, which has been placed in the public domain. The price of the 36 aircraft is 8,460 million or Rs 63,450 crore, and not what is claimed by Prime Minister Modi and his government which is 7,890 million or Rs 59,000 crore
