Vayu reports live from Aero India about a possible face off between the IAF, whose requirement for basic training aircraft totals 181 units, and HAL which is currently engaged in designing its HTT- 40 turboprop basic trainer against the Air Staff Requirement issued to it by the IAF.

No US company to bid on Swiss fighter

According to this story, Boeing has decided not to bid for the next Swiss fighter. This means the only bidders are SAAB, EADS and Daussault. Switzerland already operates F/A-18 aircraft and Boeing will continue to upgrade them. The new fighter market is heating up as countries move to upgrade their late 80 technology aircraft. Norway, India, and Switzerland are now moving for new contracts. These are the countries not committed to JSF, or using Russian technology. Once these aircraft are delivered in 2010-2015 there will be another lull in acquisitions until the next group of aircraft age and need replacement.
