Un­cer­tainty on more Hawk AJTs

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Aviation Defence & in India -

The Indian Air Force’s plan to in­duct 20 more Hawk ad­vanced jet train­ers for the Surya Ki­ran Aer­o­batic Team (SKAT)has not pro­gressed over the issue of steep in­crease in air­craft prices. The IAF had moved the pro­posal to buy th­ese 20 AJTs from BAE Sys­tems

dur­ing the UPA regime as it wanted to re­place the Ki­ran Mk IIs. “The deal has been stuck over the price issue for more than two years now as the price de­manded is way beyond the bench­mark which the De­fence Min­istry had set for the project,” ac­cord­ing to IAF sources.
