The Indian Defence Ministry has cancelled the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) Jaguar combat jets re-engining tender after one of the two contenders withdrew.

The India Strategic defence magazine reported that the request for proposal (RfP) was issued to Honeywell, which had offered its F-125IN engine, and Rolls-Royce.

Rolls-Royce has withdrawn from the competition because the company had offered to upgrade the Adour-811 engine, but the tender was for re-engining.

IAF will have to go through the government to either buy the engine in a foreign military sale or on commercial terms, if it chooses only one engine maker.

125 Jaguars are operated by the IAF.
