Nothing is a breeze in India. But good news does tend to creep in. The RFP for the Jaguar re-engining to Honeywell will be out by the end of this month, Chief of Air Staff NAK Browne told Aerospace Diary today at a press conference held before the celebration of the IAFs 80th anniversary on Oct 8.
It may be recalled in February 2011, Rolls Royce withdrew from the bid to upgrade 120-twin engined Jaguars that have the Adour Mk821 engine. The bid had called for a new engine, not an upgraded one as was expected by Rolls.
The Jaguars have become overweight and underpowered and will now have the Honeywell F125IN engine.
