Russia and India have settled controversial issues regarding the joint production of export PAK FA

Moscow and New Delhi reached an understanding on controversial issues that arose during the implementation of a joint project to develop and manufacture the 5 generation FGFA fighter, reports Look with reference to the commander-in-chief of the Indian Air Force, Arupa Rahu.
Россия и Индия урегулировали спорные вопросы, касающиеся совместного производства экспортного ПАК ФА

Previously, “India had questions about the total cost of the project, as well as technology transfer,” explained Raha.

Russia and India resumed negotiations on the FGFA project in February of this year. In particular, it was decided to reduce the total cost of development by 40% - to $ 4 billion from each side.

In August, it was reported about the completion of the first stage of the Development - draft technical work. Then the media reported on the parties agreeing on details of the future joint production of a promising fighter.

Help newspaper: “FGFA (Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft) is an export version of the Russian fighter of the 5 generation PAK (T-50). This project is part of the Make in India policy of the current Indian government. From the Russian side, the aircraft developer is the Sukhoi Design Bureau, and from the Indian side, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. ”

      The Indians are smart-ass, broke off at a price of almost two, and waited until the Russian aircraft brought to the state test! What is there to develop further? (Roughly! The basic work has already been done) Is it possible to redo the local version only in two. So they insured themselves against the risks of a long finish-up of the aircraft and investing additional funds for this. This time they are allocating money for an already completed aircraft with the second stage engine!
      I hope that Russia will beat off its penny on a long series of aircraft, which the Indians will order.

      Within the framework of the CSTO, it is already being implemented, in particular, Russia - Belarus - Armenia. In the framework of Russia - China, infa slipped, but was immediately hidden behind a veil of secrecy. I believe that s-400 deliveries to China and India will be within the framework of an already completed joint missile defense agreement.

They demanded that Russia give them certain technologies, including engines. That avionics did not suit them, they say "we need exactly the same, but our assembly."

          - have a choice? Or just pump oil for export? The only thing that remains is to sell them the technology, but DO NOT STAND ON YOUR PLACE! While we are selling these technologies, at this time we are developing new ones. They mastered the sold to them, and we already have a new technology running in. They have a dilemma again - either start developing this technology that we have already developed, or buy one that is already being tested with us. Practice shows that almost always, if you are already lagging behind in fact, it’s cheaper and more practical, and there are fewer risks — buy it (if they sell it, of course). Give you examples or do you know them yourself? And it’s most practical - when buying technology, at this time, start developing the next generation of technology. So there is a chance to catch up well, or even less to lag behind.

        The 5th generation does not shine for us either. Most just can't imagine what a 5th generation airplane is? They believe that this is just an airplane. Well, there was the first, second, ....., and now fifth. Here is a mistake that does not take into account the information revolution in the world. The 5th generation aircraft is a key element of the global information combat system. If you think that the 5th generation aircraft can be made without such a system, then you are deeply mistaken. So, if India buys, for example, the F35 from the USA, this does not mean that she bought a 5th generation airplane; she will not be able to realize all its capabilities because she does not have her own information system, or because of incompatibility with it. ..Likewise, with an UAV .... You cannot buy a modern UAV, without integration into an information system, it will have primitive capabilities .. You can buy a glider, an engine, some equipment, but you can’t buy coordination with your system. The brains must be their own, for their system, ensuring coordination and entry ... Many do not understand this with us. Moreover, we have not created such a system. There were attempts, but .... So, we can only dream of a 5th generation aircraft and modern UAVs. ...

            It is not true. The state program was adopted in 2000 and envisioned equipping our army with such systems by 2020. It has failed and will not be implemented. If you need links, I will. These programs have the wrong concept. Instead of pure information systems, systems were developed providing for command and control of troops. Moreover, the second task eventually became an end in itself, although it is not clear how to control the troops if there is no information about the enemy. The ESU TZ and "Andromeda" systems and the like consider equipment even their soldiers can , and their pulse, but do not provide collection of information about the enemy and his actions? !!! Complete stupidity ..... In addition, this concept required enormous computing power and was not feasible .. The failure of these programs did not remove the task of creating information systems. Just recently, the president set this task anew at a meeting of the Security Council. But there is no concept. VVS with air defense only this, what is global? Not funny? And you know that the TU-2R records all reconnaissance information on carriers that are decrypted on the ground after landing and are not transmitted anywhere in real time. And one set of such equipment is gathering dust at the manufacturing plant. Is one example enough or another?

            ESU TK has been put into service, but it does not work. How much money wasted. It is useless and no one needs it. It is assembled on an outdated base and it is not informational, but for command and control of troops ..... the UAV could not be coordinated with it, for MST and Tornado it does not give out anything ..... This scrap metal can be handed over immediately into scrap. Do you know who accepted and signed the act of state tests? By the way, the program for their release was not completed in 2015, and is not being implemented in 2016. Although, why release them? For show? With "Andromeda" a little better .... UAVs in perspective, but magic glasses ..... Give links? NO combat control cycle ..... did you know?

In principle, you can believe everything that is written or heard, but I personally took part in the formation of some requirements for the ESU TK back in 2006, and in 2009 we tested it together with the Sintez automated control system by a whole commission. And everyone highly appreciated its effectiveness, which increases the combat capabilities of the unit by 2,5 times on average! Then there was some problem with the means of communication. The Aqueduct radio stations of the old modification did not have a sufficient level of noise immunity, but they say this problem is being solved now.

        Are you saying that the whole commission had hallucinations when they saw with their own eyes how two portable VHF radio stations transmit high-definition video to each other through a secure channel in duplex mode ?! Is this possible at 1,2-1,6 kilobits per second, as some kind of "specialist" Kandaurov writes?
        The only real problem is the presence of the human factor and not the desire of generals and senior officers to abandon stereotypes, and of course corruption.
        The military blame the developers for the lack of proposals for creating modern methods of work for the commander and staff. In response, the developers make claims in the absence of scientifically based methods and operating principles of the same commander and staff, which are necessary to describe them in mathematical language when creating system software.

        In reality, everything works well. Because there is TK, there is an approved test program and retraining courses for specialists. Everything else is just unfair competition, the same Sistemprom, which sits in Moscow, does not do a fig, hires student programmers for a penny and hacks in a "live journal".

        I have the opinion that you are working in an office that has lost money after the state commission on your crafts.
        Since 2000, everything has been discussed, at least since 2010 OCD has been conducted. The results of the state commissions did not lead to the creation of a single information management system, and apparently, for understandable reasons, they do not work. Moreover, that of amers, that of ours. And if some kind of integration all Air defense / missile defense is still possible, for the ground forces this is unrealistic.
        At the same time, the absence of a single one does not cancel out that separate systems exist and are actually used in the troops.

            To solve the first problem, you need to send troops.
            And with the second, is it a problem? Look how well the UN convoy destroyed smile
            If without jokes - then in no country in the world. The tasks of destroying columns are not solved by bombers and the Kyrgyz Republic. For this there are attack aircraft and helicopters, which we use.
            If they don’t take videos off of them, this does not mean that we have problems with defeating moving targets.
            Where, in principle, do you have information about problems with the destruction of convoys ?? I am seriously interested in reading a detailed point of view on this issue.

            The fact that the coordinates can not give out.
            It’s shitty of course, but they will take a heavy UAV - we will learn, it’s a gain.

            About ESU TK, Andromeda - did it seem that the TV men flashed armpits in the frame?

            To be honest, the deification of these systems is not very clear. It’s not more difficult for me to get the coordinates with the PDP by voice, and not as a picture.
            The loss of several minutes during data transmission is not a big disaster. If you want to "kill" the enemies as soon as you see - let's reconnaissance direct communication with the battery (operator of the weapon) and designate landmarks in advance.
            The whole blockage occurs not in communication channels, but in approvals and "decision-making" in higher headquarters. And here no ESU TK will help.
