    L'Inde officialise l'acquisition de 56 Airbus C295

    L'Inde a officialisé, ce vendredi 24 septembre, l'acquisition de 56 Airbus C295 pour remplacer la flotte AVRO de l'Indian Air Force (IAF). Selon les termes de l’accord, 16 appareils assemblés en Espagne seront dans un premier temps livrés au gouvernement indien et les 40 autres seront construits et assemblés en Inde par Tata Advanced Systems. Il s'agit du premier programme aérospatial « Make in India » dans le secteur privé, impliquant le développement complet d'un écosystème industriel, précise Airbus. Les 16 premiers appareils seront livrés dans les quatre ans suivant la mise en œuvre du contrat. Tous les C295 de l'IAF seront livrés en configuration de transport et équipés d'une suite de guerre électronique fabriquée en Inde. « Le C295 a une nouvelle fois prouvé qu'il était le leader du segment et, avec l'arrivée de l'Inde en tant que nouvel opérateur, ce type d'appareil élargira encore son empreinte, non seulement sur les aspects opérationnels, mais aussi sur son propre développement industriel et technologique », a déclaré Michael Schoellhorn, CEO d'Airbus Defence and Space.  Les Echos Investir du 24 septembre
