The United States may offer India to "change" C-400 to F-35

The United States can supply fifth-generation F-35 fighters to India if New Delhi refuses to purchase the Russian C-400 anti-aircraft missile system. Otherwise, Washington threatens to impose sanctions. This newspaper reports The Economic Times.

The United States may offer India to "change" C-400 to F-35

According to the newspaper, the United States significantly increased the pressure on India in connection with the signing of an agreement on the acquisition of the Russian ZRS X-NUMX. Washington stated that the purchase of Russian anti-aircraft complexes "will have a direct impact on any cooperation between the two countries in the field of high technologies."

Meanwhile, the Indian Ministry of Defense is preparing a tender for the supply of the country's Air Force 111 aircraft and 57 for the Indian Navy. Although India did not request the purchase of fifth-generation F-35 fighter jets from the United States, the United States may offer this aircraft for delivery to both the Air Force and the Indian Navy.

While there were no official requests from India, and the United States did not offer F-35 supplies, these aircraft are considered to be the only aerial platform that, if upgraded and equipped with the appropriate weapons, could hit the C-400 system, which was delivered to China

- writes the edition.

It is emphasized that even in the case of partial payment of the transaction on the acquisition of the Russian ZRS-400, Washington is ready to impose sanctions against New Delhi, provided for countries that buy weapon from Russia.

Although there was an impression that the USA would make an exception for India and would not apply the sanctions provided for by CAATSA, Washington’s recent statements do not support this.

- the newspaper notes.

At the same time, the United States, in order to prevent India from receiving C-400 SAM systems, offered it to acquire the US NASAMS II air defense system for air and missile defense in the Delhi metropolitan region. Also, the US is negotiating with India on the supply of THAAD and Patriot [PAC-3].

Recall that India ordered in Russia five regimental sets of C-400 “Triumph” missiles in excess of 5 billion dollars.

      With their sanctions, they cut off their sales market, high-tech equipment, and demand is not going anywhere, then this technique will be done by someone else, maybe even us. When the Americans get so puffed up, it even makes me smile.

      Gee ... Now, probably, I'll write a banality, but remember this story? When Stalin says: "We have always thought that democracy is the rule of the people. But Mr. Roosevelt explained to me that democracy is the rule of the American people." Moreover, you understand that the people mean the American oligarchs and the politicians serving them.

    What wonderful partners are these United States ... Do you buy air defense systems from Russia? Don’t take it, you don’t need it, we better know. Still signing a contract? No, we demand (!), Better take our unfinished F-35. And then we apply sanctions. And in general it will be very bad for our relationship. We also have air defense systems, buy them, and buy from Russia, we will apply sanctions for sure.
    A common word from 6 letters of some kind, not partners.

    if the Indians succumb, they will lose all military cooperation with Russia in the framework of joint development, the United States will not do anything like it, plus there will be a permanent dictate from the Yankees what they must do, let them think and decide

    The more actively you get something, the more likely they are to impose some kind of shit. With this starlet, the same impression. If the product is good, it does not need such protection, they themselves will stand in line. But when with a darling, then yes, we must impose everything on everyone

    I think the news is good, especially if the deal takes place! In the presence of f-35, the S-400 complexes planned to be sold to India, with great desire to buy Pakistan wink . And again, the presence of F-35 among the Indians is a big plus for our intelligence.
    I think the Americans are well aware of the unreliability of the Indians and the consequences of this deal, in fact, the sale of the F-35 is a bluff, necessary only to disrupt the purchase of the S-400, this is not one or two and drove the planes while the contract is still on the conveyor, while the Indians are flying teach, force the infrastructure to prepare in India, and then again, and like Turkey, shish you, and not planes "and the sheep are safe and the wolves are fed"

    Ha Ha ... Hindus will buy Fu-35? they will bargain until it becomes obsolete ... and then they will require design documentation and localization of production in India by 40-60% ... and then they will refuse to buy! It’s better for Amers not to mess with Indians ... Novels, they are novels laughing
