“And this MMRCA deal was by far the cleanest and the most transparent deals that ever happened in India.”

Not saying much, as corrupt asd that place is.

“Probably the only deal where bribery and politics had very little role to play and the fighter platform were purely chosen on merit.”

On that we differ.

Right. And the US is not.

What was that incident where Lockheed Martin stole some confidential papers pertaining to the MMRCA deal and tried to manipulate Dassault out of the race? Yeah Americans are so clean. /s

The F-16 and F-18 failed to even clear the trials. I haven't heard LM or Boeing contesting the claims. I don't think they would not raise any hue and cry over a $10 billion deal if they suspect foul play. As corrupt as India is (which really isn't a whole lot more then US) there are times when India is dead serious about security and defense when they have a heavily armed China & Pakistan breathing down their neck. Face it. US offer fell short.
