Lockheed Martin Makes New F-21 Fighter Jet Pitch To Indian Air Force; Assures ‘Highest Level Of Indigenization’: Foreign Media

By Eurasian Times

The company has already stated that if the Indian Air Force (IAF) placed an order for 114 jets valued roughly at $18 billion under the MMRCA 2.0, the F-21 fighters will not be sold to any other country.

As reported earlier by EurAsian Times, Lockheed is eyeing a fighter jet deal with the IAF, and has expressed interest in establishing a maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility in the country. Lockheed is competing with some of the best global aircraft manufacturers for this lucrative Indian Air Force contract.

According to the latest media reports, William Blair, Vice President and Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin’s India operations, re-pitched their F-21 fighter plane, claiming that it is particularly configured to meet the IAF’s needs and is the best option in the force’s quest for 114 new fighter jets.
