The race for an Indian Air Force (IAF) order for 126 combat jets just got hotter, with US aerospace major Boeing offering to jointly produce the frontline F-18 Super Hornet in India if it wins the contract.
'In the F-18, we have arguably the most advanced fighter in the world. If we win the contract, we offer the opportunity of entering into a joint production arrangement with an Indian defence contractor,' Said Chris Chadwik, Boeing Vice President and General Manager, Global Strike Systems.
'Clearly, there is very strong competition but we believe we are positioned very strongly,' he added.
Should the deal come through, India will be the first country outside the US where the F-18 is produced.
