Senior Embraer executive Caetano Neto an interview with ” Live Mint” confirmed that the company is in talks to sell Indian Air Force (IAF) for sale of its C-390 military transport aircraft which the company claims are excellent for use in India’s northern sectors.
idrw.org has previously reported that talks with Embraer and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited indeed had taken place and both have agreed to make a combined offer to the Indian Air Force after carrying out a detailed study on developing a customized variant of the IAF.
Airbus Defence along with Tata Defence which recently bagged orders for its C-295 Transport aircraft are keen to promote its A-400M Atlas, a European four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft to the Indian Air Force.
IAF is looking to procure more C-295M that will not only replace ageing Avro aircraft but also Soviet-era An-32 Transport aircraft and both Embraer and Airbus are now eying that lucrative Medium class Transport aircraft requirement that remained after the collapse of talks with India and Russia on the joint development of the Multi-role Transport Aircraft (MTA) program.
