India and France close to concluding talks for indigenous jet engine
India and Safran are making progress in negotiations to co-develop an indigenous combat engine for India’s Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA). “Everything [is] almost there, and it is just about to happen,” Air Vice Marshal Hilal Ahmed Rather, the Indian air attaché in Paris, told CTO. The deal would leverage the offset credits accrued from India’s 2016 deal with Dassault to purchase 36 Rafale jets.
