  • Tender Sharing between India and Brazil
    Posted by Christina Mackenzie 5:46 PM on Feb 10, 2012

    India is to share with Brazil some of its documentation – without revealing anything confidential on the MMRCA (Medium Multirole Combat Aircraft) contract it is negotiating with Dassault Aviation, it was agreed at a meeting this week between Indian Defense Minister A.K. Antony and his Brazilian counterpart Celso Amorim.

    The Brazilians are particularly interested in the Indian selection process as it has already down-selected three fighters – Rafale, F-18 and Gripen-NG to meet its tender for 36 combat aircraft, and should be making a final decision in the next few months.

    But Amorim warned that “sharing of experience doesn't mean we follow your decision.”
