Russia offers India MiG-29. Indians in thought


According to military experts, the Indian Air Force must have 40 combat fighter squadrons. They are currently 32: twelve - Su-30MKI, eleven - MiG-21, six - Jaguar, three each - MiG-29 and Mirage 2000, two - MiG-27. It is assumed that by the end of 2022, of the eleven squadrons of the MiG-21, only one will remain. Therefore, there was a need for new fighters.

Most likely, this will be discussed at the talks between Indian Defense Minister Nirmala Sitkharaman and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

The air force of India in terms of the number of aircraft are among the most numerous after the United States, Russia and China. The air force serves 127 thousand people, in service - 1820 units of military equipment. The purpose of the Air Force is air supremacy, reconnaissance, support for ground forces, ensuring India’s security in the aerospace field, RG-Sila reports

      Just the same illegible - they buy everything, bargain for every penny. And they can’t decide in any way.

          Welcome hi

          As buyers, they are difficult, but if there is a firm contract, then they pay. The Chinese are also those bugs.

            So they are traders before birth. I’m used to it - the market is big, I’ll bargain, I’ll choose something. laughing By the way, the Chinese are very fond of bargaining. This is their “national heritage”, they will even lose it at a loss, but bargaining is a holy thing ... Chinese holy. bully

              China at least buys correctly and at the same time develops its own. And the Indians are buying up everything, if only cheaper and on their own terms.

                Hindus are not only “all in a row”, they are also mixing.
                They can easily try to hang a Chinese radar and an American missile on a Russian plane. The most amazing thing is that these transformers also fly

                  As a rule, kroilovo leads to the popalov. Hindus have a long walk to this wisdom.

    Again, creaks and groans will begin that the MIG-29 is flying, flies backwards and it can only be for nothing, and not for money.
    Boltrookrut!

    Wow, they still have the MiG-27. I thought that they no longer fly like the MiG-23.

      Well, they have a bunch of much older MiG 21s, albeit modernized, and the MiG 27s aren’t such a bad strike aircraft (for some reason, they ranked them among fighter jets).

    Yes, it would be nice for the Migrants of India to deliver orders and subsequent services to our manufacturers ... India is not China, they obviously can’t fight with us far, we can supply them without fear ...

    Mig29 in modern versions is a very decent plane
