    Aero India 09

    Lets accumulate news and details about the one of biggest Aero Shows in South Asia. Aero India.

    Almost 600 armament companies are expected to take part in the Aero India-2009 to be held in Bangalore next February.

    "Around 330 companies from 50 countries and 270 firms from India are likely to take part in this 7th edition of the biennial international aerospace exposition," said a defence ministry official on Monday.

    "Nearly 100 different types of aircraft, both civil and military, will be on display,"

    The Centre will be spending around Rs 20 crore to augment the infrastructure in and around the Yelahanka air force station at Bangalore for the airshow. International aviation majors ranging from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky and BAE Systems to Sukhoi, Embraer, Bombardier and SAAB will all be making a beeline for Aero India-2009 to hawk their wares.

    Also in the same site the F 16In Super Viper, two seater with CFT not as beautiful as the single seater without CFT,yet a great Fighter, the plus point of this Jet seems the AN/APG-80 radar and the F110-GE-132 turbofan (probably)

    Here's another good article on the upcoming Aero India in last month's Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine concerning the various fighters that are going up against one another for the lucrative MRCA contract:

    Aero India update from india-defence.com

    France Pledges Surface to Air Missile Technology Transfer; Pushes Rafale for Air Force MRCA Deal

    France is ready to transfer technology of its surface-to-air missile to Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India so that this country can build its own version, French Minister of State for Defence Jean-Marie Bockel said today. Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of air show, Aero India 2009, he said the offer is currently under discussions with Indian authorities.

    On the absence of Rafale, made by France's Dassault Aviation, one of the contenders for India's 126 fighter jets contract, from the show, he said Rafale is on display back in France and is available for those who want to test it. "All the Rafale that could have been sent to India for this air show...Are presently in (combat) operation in Afghanistan", he said. "Rafale will be present at all stages of evaluation (in India in its bid for the contract) and we believe it's the best plane available", Bockel said.

    Asked if France would stop sales of weapons to Pakistan in the wake of Mumbai terror attacks blamed on elements within that neighbouring country, he said "France wants Pakistan to act very concretely and fully against terrorism at all the levels of the State". "We say that to Pakistan, we will continue to say it to Pakistan", Bockel added.
