Modern jet engines are a tough nut to crack. CF China's problems with the AN31 Saturns.
I wouldn't scoff at anyone who could reproduce Dessault Breguet work.
Kurt Tank would be proud!

They are working on the engines too, kaveri is not completed but they are enlisting foriegn help to clear the glitches that have plagued the engine. Actually the french have offered to help in developing the kaveri....also they have offered to put them in the rafale if india decides to buy that plane.
Anyways the swedish Gripen uses GE-404 engines as well......does that mean their efforts were meaningless?
P.S. - By the way, i'd like to see you (herc) build an airframe for a supersonic jet and the avionics in your garage....that's just a ridiculous and arrogant claim!!
