NEW DELHI — Last month’s export authorization from the U.S. government now permits Northrop Grumman to have discussions with the Indian navy on the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, a platform that provides a highly adaptive form of airborne early warning and control (AEW&C).

A U.S Navy representative, E-2 New Business Manager John Beaulieu, last week made an eight-hour presentation to the Indian navy on the E-2D after a request for more technical clarifications following a request for information last year.

This shows us that other armed forces are always upgrading. Indian is not to be trifled with either. Remember Cope-India 2004 where Indian Su-30 series aircraft defeated US F-15s and F-18s over four days of aggressor training.

I am always amazed that foreigners read the blog. I wonder if any of these comments are from real people or machines looking for an entrance into my computer.

I know I have over about 1200 visitors a week. But I wish it was clear who exactly they are. Also, if you have access to the internet, it shouldn’t be too hard to translate your comment into clear English. I would so appreciate it.

Thanks for visiting nonetheless
