Chief of Naval Staff Admiral R. Hari Kumar told ABP Live that both Dassault Aviation’s Rafale M and Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet have cleared technical trials held by the Indian Navy and both aircraft met its requirements for deck-based operations from two Indian aircraft carriers but it will be the decision of the government since the Navy has said yes to both.
Kumar acknowledged that IAF that operates Rafale will have a commonality for spare parts and support etc that might play a crucial role in its considerations.
Kumar refused to give what the Navy could want and said that “Each has got its strengths and weaknesses, so let the government decide.”
