Airbus is to manufacture 40 C-295MW military transport in India in partnership with an Indian consortium led by Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL)
Under a $2.8 Billion contract signed with India’s Ministry of Defence in September 2021.
This will be the first full spectrum ‘Make in India’ aerospace programme in the private sector
Which will involve the development of a complete industrial ecosystem.
A concurrent offsets contract obligates Airbus Defence & Space to source equipment and systems worth 30 per cent of the value of the C-295MW contract from Indian partners.
