Dassault will now enter into exclusive talks to finalise the deal

French firm Dassault has emerged as the lowest bidder for a $10bn (£6.3bn) contract to supply India jet fighters.

Dassault Aviation, as preferred bidder, will now enter final talks before signing a deal that will supply India’s air force with 126 Rafale aircraft.

Correspondents say this is one of the world’s biggest defence deals and is a major setback for rival bidder, the Eurofighter Typhoon.
