We have bid for C295W medium transport aircraft as a replacement for IAF’s Avro fleet. If selected, together with Tata, we will set up a C295W final assembly line in India and a supplier base to feed it. We have also partnered with Mahindra for helicopter manufacturing in India. We are already laying the groundwork and are readying ourselves for fast-track implementation in case the government accepts our proposals. On Euro-fighter, we have moved on and put the campaign in India behind us.
