INDIAN GOVERNMENT IN TALKS WITH BOEING TO PURCHASE THE LAST C17 GLOBEMASTER
India is in talks with the U.S. for buying another Boeing C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft to be added to its fleet of 10.Since induction in 2013, the aircraft has become the mainstay of India’s humanitarian assistance and disaster relief efforts.
The aircraft, along with associated equipment, technical support and warranty, is estimated to cost $366.2 million.
In 2011, India purchased 10 C-17s under the Foreign Military Sales programme worth $4.1 billion, which had a follow-on clause for six more aircraft. However, the delay in decision-making in the Defence Ministry meant the IAF missed out on the opportunity. The last C-17 aircraft left Boeing’s Long Beach plant in California in 2015. While the C-17 assembly line was shut down, Boeing made 10 additional aircraft without any order and offered them to all existing customers, including India. New Delhi’s silence meant nine pieces were picked by the existing users and one is left with Boeing.

Индия ведет переговоры о закупке последнего транспортного самолета Boeing C-17 Globemaster. Стоимость самолета с соответствующим оборудованием, технической поддержкой и гарантией, составит, по оценкам, 366,2 млн долл США. В 2011 году Индия заключила контракт на поставку 10 самолетов этого типа, все они поступили в состав ВВС.
