Typhoon makes Indian shortlist

A fighter aeroplane made by a European consortium that includes the UK's BAE Systems has reached the final shortlist of two contenders as India ponders where to award a £6.6bn contract for 126 aircraft.

Indian government ministers are understood to have whittled down the original shortlist of six options to the Typhoon aircraft, made by the consortium Eurofighter, and the Rafale, produced by French manufacturer Dassault.
