After almost one year of evaluation of the 6 contenders (F-/18E, Rafale, F-16IN, Gripen C/D/demo, Mig-35 and Typhoon, India is expected to release soon a short list with the fighters that will be allowed to participate in the final round of the contest.
So far, no info was leaked on the aircraft(s) that could be eliminated.
My best guess is :
at least one US aircraft is in the short list
at least one euro-canard does not make it and it is not the rafale :)
