F-21, along with Tejas and Rafale, will be game-changer for IAF: Lockheed

US defence giant Lockheed Martin believes its F-21 fighter, offered exclusively for the Indian Air Force, would be a game-changer along with the indigenous Tejas and Rafale fighters. Lockheed Martin has offered the F-21 fighter, unveiled at Aero India in 2019, in consideration for an Indian Air Force contract for 114 aircraft, which is estimated to be valued at $15 billion.

“We believe the F-21 is the best solution to meet the Indian Air Force’s capability needs, provide Make-in-India industrial opportunities, and accelerate India-US cooperation on advanced technologies,” Lockheed Martin executive Vivek Lall told PTI in an interview on Wednesday. The F-21 is derived from the prolific F-16 fighter.
