In this episode of In Our Defense, we discuss the importance of the Tata-Airbus deal to the production of C-295 transport aircraft.

Recently, Tata, an Indian multinational conglomerate, signed an agreement in partnership with Airbus to produce C-295 transport aircraft for the Indian Air Force in Vadodara, Gujarat.

What is this deal about and what is important? Are we close to our own defense production capacity?

Dev Goswami, the presenter of the show, and “Def-Savvy” Abhishek Bhalla, the national bureau chief, discuss defense production in India, our competence, and also address the ironic fact that India has still not been able to produce its own rifle.
