Its not my opinion it is the Indian position.

Besides most importantly the Indians were looking for technology transfers and some solid guaranties against sanctions. They got neither from US and both of those from Europeans. Europeans are clear winners in this one.

“Its not my opinion it is the Indian position.”

Yes, I know, it’s the official position in India. Like, I said, the “official” position.

“Besides most importantly the Indians were looking for technology transfers and some solid guaranties against sanctions.”.........Europeans are clear winners in this one.”

I see. “Technology transfers” are a “winner” for those who transfer their technology???; for a deal today, knowing it will mean the recipient will not need you tomorrow????

The transferred technology, and the technology transfers (a VERY political matter), WAS an the issue; NOT “superior” technology.

And yes, “sanctions” also (what you can do with OUR technology) are a political matter, NOT a technology matter.

Am I holding it against India? No. It’s natural. And IT IS POLITICAL.

It’s not about getting “the best fighter”. It’s about getting “technology transfers” and it’s about not having restrictions on the use of the technology being bought. Those ARE POLITICAL decisions. NOT “best fighter” reasons.
