Re: Indian Tejas and Pakistani JF 17 fighterjets compete to win their first export order in Malaysia

I believe LCA has good chances considering the following
LCA uses the same engine as F-18, one of the other fighter jet that Malaysian Air Force fly's..
LCA also uses the Israeli EW , that shares commonality with the SU 30 MKM that Malaysian air force fly's.

Now compare that with jf-17 that uses rd-33 engine, it is a maintenance heavy, with shorter lifetime and leaves a smoke trail in flight. And god only knows the capability of the chineese avionics and EW equipment

There is also one more jet in the fight that is korean T-50 golden eagle. This one uses the same engine as the LCA but the avionics and EW are different.

I think the fight is between LCA and T-50. The question is would LCA be as cheap as T-50(as per wiki)? Also there is a million dollar question if HAL can produce enough numbers to supply IAF and then some more for the Malaysian air force?

I remember people saying in 1994 that Sushmita Sen won her miss universe title only because the contest was being held in Malaysia . Malaysia has held favourable views of Indians .

It was held in Philippines. I remember that quite well. There were a lot of protests in Phillipinnes. Some former beauty queens were also a part of the protests.

The common Malays are nice, particularly in Singapore, but the Malaysian government officials are arrogant. The guy i met at the immigration way back in 2003 was asking ridiculous questions like 'where is your ticket back from Singapore to India'. he shut up when i showed him my singapore 'Employment pass'. The infamous incident of harrassing Cybercoolies happened during my visit there. It should be there in EC too.

And last thing they did was to offer asylum to Zakir Naik.
