UK Offers India to Upgrade Jaguar

A three-member British delegation led by the Minister for Defence Equipment and Support, Mr. Quentin Davies met the Minister of State for Defence Shri MM Pallam Raju here today.


Mr. Davies said the United Kingdom was eager to help India in the upgradation of the Jaguar fighter jets and overcome problems related to licensed production of Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer at the HAL.

The two leaders expressed satisfaction over the ongoing Defence Cooperation between the two countries. Shri Pallam Raju said that all the three Services have been holding Joint Exercises every year alternately on each other’s soil and territorial waters.

Mr. Davies said that the UK Forces have participated in Joint Exercises with India despite being overstretched due to commitments in Afghanistan and Iraq while a number of such exercises with other countries were not held.

Shri Pallam Raju informed the visiting dignitary that India was ready to sign a General Security Arrangement (GSA) with the UK while an MoU on Host Nation Support (HNS) was under examination of an inter-ministerial committee.

I am a fan of the Indian air force
do not do not buy or upgrade Jaguar
this aircraft has been taken out of the Royal air Force.
I have heard from pilots of British air force that Tornado is a much better air Craft which Britain wants to dispose off.
