Does EADS have a bad rep for "In Service Support"? I suspect BAE will take the lead on any such venture in India. The support to the Saudi Typhoons is recieving very positive feed back....or at least teh BAE Corporate Newspaper would have me believe .

If the bolded comment was more aimed at ToT, then again I have to say that I think India may recieve more from a non US supplier. Now the US can share alot of stuff, its just the the "Processes" that have to be followed are truelly mind boggling, I have personally dealt with it dealing with Austrailia, and been on the sideline of our India dealings with my piece of equipment. I cant describe how "Not Fun" it was!!!!
