India Approves Purchase of Airbus C-295 Military Transport Aircraft
India’s defence acquisition council tonight cleared a proposal by Airbus Defence & Space and its Indian partner, the Tata Group, to procure C-295 military transport as a replacement for the Indian Air Force’s Avro fleet.
The Airbus-Tata team was the sole bidder to replace Indian Air Force’s (IAF) fleet of 56 Avro aircraft fleet with C-295 military transport carrier.
In May 2013, the Ministry had issued a Request For Proposals (RFP) to original equipment manufacturers including US firms Boeing and Lockheed Martin, European multinational Airbus Defense and Space, and Antonov of Ukraine among others.
They were required to tie-up with an Indian private company under which 40 aircraft will be produced here while 16 will be bought off-the-shelf.
However, only Airbus Defense and Space and Tata Advanced Systems Ltd (TASL) consortium had bid for the proposal in October last year.
Airbus Helicopters announced today that it will deliver 15 H145M multi-role twin engine military rotorcraft to German Air Force by year end after the rotorcraft was certified by European EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) for the military type approval. The delivery to Royal Thai Navy, the second H145M customer will begin in 2016
