    I don't think purchase of Hawk could be canceled. India is also licence building the Hawk aircraft in India itself. By the way very nice pictures in this thread, keep it up.

    HAL WILL be manufacturing the 66 Hawks ... The Follow on Order for Additional 40 HAWKS was canceled due to the spare parts issue

    PS: ( this deal took 20yrs to go thru ) ..

    Question here it is

    IAF plans for additional Hawks jet trainers shelved

    New Delhi, Mar 17 (PTI) Upset over problems relating to spares supply for British 'Hawks' Advanced Jet Trainers (AJTs), India has shelved plans to place follow-on orders for the aircraft and instead floated new tenders to supplement its trainer fleet.
    Indian Air Force (IAF) sources said here today that the new tenders -- Request for Proposals (RFP) in Defence parlance -- were issued about a month ago to six global aircraft manufacturers.

    [*******Red]Surprisingly, United Kingdom-based Hawks manufacturer BAE Systems finds a place among the six companies which had received the fresh tenders[/COLOR]. But it was being approached for an upgraded version of the AJTs, sources said.

    Others trainers that the IAF has shown interest in and sent the tender papers to were Italy's Alenia for the M-346, Korean T-50s, the Chez L-159, Russian YAK-130 and MiG AT Trainer, sources said.

    After a procurement process that lasted nearly 20 years, India finally entered a contract for the delivery of 66 Hawks trainers with BAE in 2004. The contract had an in-built provision for a follow-on order for 40 more aircraft.

    But the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) had been finding it difficult to maintain the production lines for the aircraft at its facility due to considerable delays in spares supplies, sources said.

    The move of the IAF to go in for a new brand of trainer aircraft came as a surprise, as it had originally planned to have a single type of trainers in the fleet to train future fighter pilots. PTI

    The Orange Suits are for Maritime Missions .. obviously this Pilot and this SQN are a part of the IAF's Maritime Operations

    The Orange Color is For visual Aid In case of SAR

    That's interesting. Not even the USN or US Coast Guard do that...perhaps it's because if you somehow get shot down over land that orange suit is going to stick out a wee bit.

    come on guys....orange flight suit are test pilot...what the heck is this ' Orange Color is For visual Aid In case of SAR ' you guys wrote.

















    [*******lemonchiffon]im joking only...if its a VMSK-4 Russian Naval Flight Suit then it probably pilot protection system as it contains a number of partial pressure (G-suit) components and it also acts as a dry-suit in case the pilot ejects into the cold waters of the North or Barents Seas....and yeah thats why its orange[/COLOR]

    The orange flight suit was seen worn by LCA TACDE pilots also. I doubt it has to do with naval ops
