Comment: Based on commonality with the existing Indian Air Force, the MiG-35 would seemingly be the best choice. However, Russia continues to lag behind the West in key areas like radar and avionics performance. The F-18E/F has the most capable radar of the competitors, and it or the F-16 would give India access to a wide variety of advanced US weapon systems. Reports suggest none of the European manufacturers have high hopes for being competitive in this contest. Comment: Russia is doing its best to have it both ways--gently chiding Iran for disobeying international agreements while gladly taking as much Iranian money as the country will spend. Iran, in turn, is more than happy to accept Russia's advanced technology and use it to arm Islamic rebels in Chechnya and elsewhere in Russia's troubled southern regions.

Given the major delays recently announced in the A380 and other programs, should Airbus postpone the A350 and instead focus on developing a competitor to Boeing's 737 replacement?

Comment: Comment: The A380 debacle has certainly strained Airbus and will put the conglomerate at a disadvantage. Boeing will be able to bring the 787 and its 737 replacement to market several years before Airbus equivalents. The challenge now is for Boeing to live up to its aggressive expectations for the 787 delivery schedule.
