Re: Hal tejas
China probably wouldn't help until the territorial dispute with India in Southern Tibet is fully resolved (that plus China's close relations with Pakistan). Besides the Chinese engine is still very problematic at this stage and I don't think we'll be able to produce world-class engines in the near future.I think you are right in this, because the US is not likely to pull the plug on Indian projects, and anyway, India has a lot of insurance against this. If the US says no, there are plenty who would step in and take their place: Russia or France, for example. In fact, if India were to become estranged from the US, maybe even China would offer such help!
