            Not really.
            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.
            Thanks

              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.

                China is working on making the Block III version of its JF-17 fighter match the latest version of the United States F-16 V.

                  Please avoid kiddish emotcons and LOLz. This is a adult website, not F-16.net. According to Yahoo news, Trump HAS asked for sanctions if India was to buy S400. And anyway why would India buy plane they already technically rejected as inferior to Eurofighter and Rafale?

                    The size of the Indian territory related to S-400 range is quite a different challenge than it is with Turkey.

                      The US won't sanction India over the S400. You can take that to the bank. As for the F-16 vs Eurofighters. (i.e. Typhoon & Rafale) The F-16 will be cheaper and just or more capable in the strike role. In addition it could easily lead to the F-35. Which, is a "must" for India in order to counter future J-20's and J-31's.

                      BTW This forum has nothing on F-16.net

                            Poland plans to acquire 32 "fifth-generation" aircraft to replace its remaining MiG-29s and a ground-attack fleet of Sukhoi Su-22s. It is believed to be particularly interested in the Lockheed Martin F-35, although other candidates could include the Boeing F-15 or F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, the Eurofighter consortium's Typhoon and the Saab Gripen E.

                                        The US Air Force is requesting funds from Congress for eight Boeing F-15EX fighters instead of more of its favored aircraft, the Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II, in a move aimed at cutting costs.
