Lockheed Martin to meet deadline for India's war jet deal


1 day ago
NEW DELHI (AFP) US aerospace giant Lockheed Martin said it would meet a March 2008 deadline set by India to bid for the world's largest military aircraft deal estimated at 10 billion dollars.
It is among six global armament firms in the race to sell 126 fighter jets to the Indian air force.
"We have sought no extension and plan to meet the deadline," company vice president Orville Prins told reporters in New Delhi.
The remarks came amid reports that three of the bidders have sought an extension to the March 3 deadline to submit proposals to the Indian defence establishment.
"(But) we are not seeking any changes or dilutions, but some clarifications to make our bid robust," Prins said.
