India confirms the purchase of 36 Rafale in fly-away conditions

...Is there a ship version of Meteor like the Aim-120?...
I’m sure MBDA have concepts but I’m not aware of ship based Meteor variant being available yet. However, ASRAAM forms the basis of the Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (CAAMM) which is planned to replace the Sea Wolf and Rapier in RN and Army service.

In fairness, the Indian AF is a very effective and professional service these days.

Having seen the Indian Air Force close-up at Yelahanka AFS back in 2007, it is surprising how RAF oriented their air force remains-or it certainly did back then.

That’s very much the case for a great many former colonial nations; Pakistan, South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe are other good examples.

Malaysia as well. Being on a TUDM (Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia-Royal Malaysian Air Force) base years ago was like a throwback to a RAF base in the 1960s. Signs up to not smoke within xx number of feet (not metres) of a fuel bowser for instance.

There again the Royal Thai Air Force is run on US lines-apart from having a RAF style rank structure.
 
Money given to India is very unlikely to be spent in the UK. Especially after the Leornado corruption scandal.

This money will most likely be spent on Russia or the USA.

It's amusing to see how the British think that the so called foreign aid is a major source of income of the Indian government.

Firstly India has repeatedly asked the government of UK to stop this aid program considering the fact that India's annual spending is nearly 600 billion $ and has been running many programs to uplift it's poor.

Earth,

I'm sure 99.99999 of the British taxpayers would agree with you.

However the snowflakes have to have some excuse to visit India and see how the aid is being spent during the worst of the British winter. And no doubt staying at the best hotels available.
