      India has always procured various manufacturers. the question is only in% share of one to the other. Now the demand for our equipment is slowly growing, and to Syria it was falling.

          If Russia supplies the Ka-52 to Pakistan, then in a couple of years China will launch its Ka-52s. Do you know what I mean?

      Apaches work on earthly goals at night as confidently as during the day.
      This is a great advantage.

      Most likely, India is not satisfied with our delivery dates and comprehensive warranty service ... It is not so easy to find out of 146 million people who want to change and "tinker with installation and debugging" for 000 Russian rubles in three shifts ...

      And in which ours are superior to the Americans: avionics, weapons systems? I think the policy has nothing to do with it. Warranty and after-sales service, a resource, the same “hellfire” with the GOS.
      Here we lose! hi

    If they managed to ditch the T-90, then who prevents Apache from breaking it?

      The United States has good service, is being repaired quickly, while our bureaucracy is slowing down. Therefore, the broken Apache will be repaired with lightning speed, and the T-90 will wait for spare parts for two years

          He is absolutely right. West parts for military equipment come
          to Israel from the USA instantly, by flight, by simple e-mail without any
          bureaucratic tyagomutiny. And all financial calculations will come later.

    Hindus are generally good pilots, but they are also champions of air crashes, remembering the long-suffering and repeatedly tested MiG-21.

      For 11356? Probably, right after they put into production gas turbine engines for 22350. Moreover, the Indians talked about ordering four new 11356 by them - so even taking into account the purchase of Nikolaev gas turbine engines, all the same, they will need complete sets of gas turbines for 2 more export ships.

        Yes! In Russia, there is still much to be done, many to be removed, many to be planted in order to return the military-technical potential to the Soviet level .....

    Work for 37 rubles is also necessary to search persistently. For 000, it’s already much easier. No, of course there is for 25 a day, but then you have to be a friend you know who.

    Between 2001 and 2009, the United States lost 79 of its AN-64 attack helicopters during the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. At the same time, 11 vehicles were damaged by enemy fire, and 68 crashed without assistance.
