Failure to complete the review of LCA-Tejas and F-16 A/B MLU on time has forced Argentine Air Force to delay its plans to announce the winner of the competition in December this year to next year. The Argentine Air Force’s Director of Plans, Programs, and Budget Brigadier Diego García told local media that the technical teams and specialists are still in the process of analyzing and evaluating the proposals from China, India, and Denmark.
An Argentine mission is in Denmark to study used F-16 A/B MLU that are on offer at $15 million per unit. Argentina sent a team of technical specialists last month to India to evaluate the LCA-Tejas fighter jet that was on offer from India.
Danish F-16S were found to carry some British-origin parts that are likely to be vetoed by Britain’s Foreign Trade office. Argentine officials are now considering the Chinese-Pakistani JF-17 Thunder Block III and the Indian HAL-built Tejas, which are both been offered without British components.
