Boeing F-15EX Fighter Jets Pitched To Indian Air Force To Have Indigenously Developed Aerostructures?

By Eurasian times

The contract between Bengaluru-headquartered Dynamatic Technologies and Boeing will not only contribute to India’s Atmanirbhar Bharat campaign but also augment US-India collaboration in the defense field.

Interestingly, Boeing is also pitching the F-15EX to the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the latest deal is seen as an attempt by the US aerospace company to make deeper inroads into the Indian market.

Boeing’s MMRCA 2.0 Bid
After acquiring 36 Rafale jets, the Indian Air Force proposed what is loosely called the MMRCA 2.0 tender for procuring 114 additional fighter jets for its air fleet in April 2018.

Boeing’s Eagle II is competing for the tender alongside seven other aircraft including Swedish Saab’s Gripen, the Russian MiG-35 and Su-35, French Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon, the US’ Lockheed Martin’s F-21, and Boeing’s Super Hornet.
