India-Pakistan: December 31, 1999


India has ordered 17 Jaguar strike aircraft from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, which will build them under license from Britain. India originally bought 120 of the planes, but has lost 17 in various accidents. Buying these 17 as replacements will allow India to raise a sixth squadron of Jaguars. --Stephen V Cole
