Boeing has confirmed its plans to submit its F-15EX fighter jet for the Indian Air Force’s MRFA competition as the Request For Proposal (RFP) will be issued by end of 2022.

The U.S Department of Defense has quoted the Fly Away unit cost of the F-15EX to be $87.9 million with a $29,000 per hour flying cost but the Vice President of Boeing’s fighter division, Steve Parker has said that the price of F-15EX would come below $80 million per unit despite ongoing problems with Supply chains and inflation that have recently driven up prices in the defense industry.

The F-15EX will be 33 cheaper than the French Rafale as the Rafael F3R standard was procured by Indian Air Force at $120 million per unit with per hour flight cost of $21,000.
