“But it was their misjudgement to offer the IAF fighters like the F-16 and the F-18 that are decades old.”.

The jets offered were not the jets built “decades ago.” If they were that stupid to know the difference, then there is no hope for them.

“It is arrogance to claim these have been modernized and are good enough for a country like India.”

Ahhh. . .the usual whining and deflection, trying to hide their corrupt decision-making process.

“If they wanted to argue technology, they should have fielded the F-35.”

Offer the JSF. . .as if. . . giving one of the most corrupt third-world countries in the world access to JSF technology. Sure.

Even if they’re upgraded, it’s still old stuff.

The europeans did. So they made clearly the better offer.

If the decision making process in India is as corrupt as you claim, how come Boeing, Lockheed Martin and GE have won billions in contracts since 2005?? Why did Boeing and LM participate in this tender if it was a corrupt cesspool where they stood no chance?
