Seven and a half months after Broadsword reported (on 2nd Sept 09) that HAL squarely blamed BAE Systems for the delays in producing the "raw" (i.e. built from ground up, as opposed to built from CKD or SKD kits) Hawk trainers in India, the MoD today corroborated what HAL Chairman, Ashok Nayak, told me in August. The statement made by the MoD in parliament today is appended below.
When that article was going to press BAE Systems called me up and vociferously denied anything to do with the delays. They also denied it in writing; my article carried in my article. Go back to 2nd Sept for another look.
