    I understand that the planes are already with a solid beard, but after all, they not only remained in service with them, others do not fight like that ....
    Thank God the pilots are alive.

      It depends on who and how they service and operate. All the same, the plane is not a fighting elephant; you can’t do it alone by feeding (refueling).

      fight ... we look at the statistics. just not serviced by a "dealer", and the planes were released, hell knows where, and hell knows when, but globally, "reputational losses" - we, get, sign, although, we have nothing to do with it.

        What are our reputational losses? The plane is half a century old .. The well-known problems with the corrosion of the MiG-29 and the defeat of the MiG-35 in 2009 in the tender (by the way, the Indian one) hit our reputation much more than all these falls of "balalaikas" ...

    Technicians must have forgotten to dance before maintenance. :)

      A joke repeated even twice is considered stupidity. Regarding Indian dances, as well as about the "diapers" of the Yankes warriors, nerdy humorists were already tired of the toothache. Think of something newer and more original.

      In general, it’s amazing how in such climatic conditions Indians fly equipment, most of which are 30, 40, 50 years old! The heat and humidity there are sometimes simply beyond.

    They are fighting because of the indifferent attitude of the Indians to the maintenance of equipment ... Technical groups are not assigned to the planes, everything is done on the principle that tomorrow there will be a different technician, he will do it for me ... the equipment is not inspected and is not serviced ... Horror!

      Technique can be changed, but people who are they can’t be redone. So the planes of the Indian Air Force have fallen and will continue to fall.

    This year, not only MIGs crashed, but also Mirage and Jaguar. So this is not a matter of technology.

          We used to say "armament" - from "group AB (aviation armament". And, of course, not in business, since "the fighter flew without ammunition" laughing

    In India, technicians are clearly not friends with technology. It remains only to be happy for these guys that remained alive.

    It sometimes seems to me that the Indians will never write off the 21st and will fly on them until the last side falls.

    The heading fire is simple. So it seems, a hundred vicious rajah technician does not want to write off the plane and here are the valiant pilots in Once again smash a boring car.

    Only one comment about the climatic features of the operation of Mig fighters in India! There you can safely count for three years. And the qualifications of technical personnel and flight personnel are also special. As if the other Air Force did not have an emergency! Everything can be replaced only by WAR! (Who has better preparation and technique). The rest is from the evil one.

    5 non-combat units per year. A lot. 2 - MiG-27, 1 each - MiG-21, Jaguar and Mirage 2000. The pilots ejected in all cases, except for the "mirage", when both were killed.
    There are questions to the system of ejection of paddling pools
