India Lockheed seeks to shake off Pakistan tag, offers F-21 series only for India


To shake off the Pakistan tag that has throttled its efforts to pitch the F-16 to India, US aircraft maker Lockheed Martin is willing to recast and rebrand its old warhorse as F-21, just for India.

The new fighter jet may still be on the drawing board, but Lockheed officials claimed that it was a “completely different” plane, tailored specifically for the Indian Air Force. They also indicated that it could have certain technologies from the F-22 and F-35. Incidentally, the fifth generation F-22 is made specifically for the US Air Force and not sold to any other country.

The F-21, which Lockheed will make with Tata Advanced Systems, will be on offer for bid on India’s requirement of 110 combat aircraft.    Read More
