    Lockheed Martin named Bridget Lauderdale as incoming vice-president and general manager for its integrated fighter group

    Lauderdale most recently served as vice-president for Lockheed Martins F-35 global sustainment team. She has also held roles as senior vice-president of corporate strategy and business development, vice-president for aeronautics operations, vice-president and general manager of F-16 and F-2 fighters, and vice-president for F-22 product development, says Lockheed Martin.

    "Bridget's extensive experiences in the fighter market, her strong relationships with internal teams and customers, and her thoughtful, strategic approach will enable us to continue generating opportunities for the F-16 and F-22 well into the future," says Michele Evans, executive vice-president of aeronautics.

    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 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

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

    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.

    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.
