IAF to procure another Boeing C-17 transport aircraft

New Delhi: DAC chaired by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday approved the purchase of one more Boeing C-17 Globemaster heavy-lift transport aircraft, and also reviewed the ongoing projects of the services and the DRDO, sources said. The Indian Air Force currently operates 10 C-17s, which it began inducting in 2013. The other proposals cleared by the DAC included the procurement of 1,500 modernised nuclear biological chemical protection systems for mounting on infantry combat vehicles, at a cost of Rs. 1,265 crore. These will be bought under the Indigenous Design Development and Manufacturing (IDDM) category. This will be an automated system. The systems on infantry combat vehicles are currently manual.
