U.S. Fighter Jet Makers Out of Indian MRCA Fighter Jet Deal
India has decided against considering fighter jets manufactured by The Boeing Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation for a $11 billion order and is narrowing down its choice to two European-made planes- France's Dassault Rafale and the Eurofighter Typhoon.
Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet and Lockheed Martin’s F-16 Super Viper – both of which are powered by General Electric engines – lost out to two European airplanes that are still under consideration by the Indian military. GE Aviation was expecting to see a healthy order flow if either of the U.S. competitors was awarded the contract.
