India did not send a request for the supply of MiG-29K for the aircraft carrier "Vikrant"

The delay in transferring the latest Wikrant aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy has nothing to do with the delivery of the MiG-29K deck aircraft by the Russian side. Moscow has not yet received a call from New Delhi for the supply of aircraft. This was reported by TASS with reference to a source in the aircraft industry.


According to news agency, Russia previously provided India with all the necessary information on a possible contract for the supply of a batch of MiG-29K carrier-based fighter aircraft for the newest Indian aircraft carrier Wickrant, but has still not received an answer. In addition, India has not even issued a tender for the supply of carrier-based fighters.

Russia expects an appeal from the Indian Ministry of Defense to supply MiG-29K carrier-based fighter jets for Vikrant. Therefore, to argue that the timing of the transfer of the Indian Navy aircraft carrier is delayed due to Russia, is not very correct

- The source said, adding that Rosoboronexport will participate in the tender from Russia.

Earlier, Indian State Minister of Defense Sripad Naik said that the transfer of the Vikrant aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy would be delayed due to a “delay in the delivery of aircraft from Russia."

According to reports from the Indian Ministry of Defense, the newest light carrier, Wickrant, is due to enter service in March 2021. According to plans, up to 14 MiG-29K / KUB aircraft and several helicopters of radar patrol will be based on it.

        One can say that a person has mental amnesia - he does not remember ordering or did not order aircraft. No need to laugh at the disabled person! recourse

        India has not sent a request for the supply of MiG-29K for the Vikrant aircraft carrier [/ I have not watched Indian films since .. the repeated death of kapoor .. (8090).

    Yes there and so it was clear. I remind you that for example, just recently they launched their own, an Indian engine, from the catapult, and for this reason they started to squeal for a long time, they say - well done! done for our aircraft carrier! True, from this joy, sailors push and kick off their hands. but judge for yourself - what for did they have to do this if they had already concluded an agreement on MIGs?

      The decked version of the Indian national perspective light fighter Tejas Navy for the first time tested on the deck of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya Indian Navy.
      And where did you find the catapult on it ???

        Oh, even on an aircraft carrier? Actually, I didn’t remember exactly - it makes no sense. this is news for one day, all the same, this fighter will not fly anywhere. But the general meaning is the same, they shove it hard on an aircraft carrier ... So, it is unlikely that the deal with the MIGs was even specifically spoken out.
        Psi - and yes. I forgot, it’s with a springboard, without a catapult) Yes, I forgot ...

      The fact of the matter is that no. There now he wants to push through all the US pairs F-18. From that, in my opinion, and the statement of the Minister of Defense in order to discredit Russia as a supplier.

    However insolent! He should recall the situation in 2017 when the Indian Navy decided to abandon the MiG-29K / KUB carrier-based fighter, saying that he would seek a replacement during the tender, considering the joint production of the F / A-18E / F Super Hornet American fighters.
    And then, we are ready to deliver them a “numbed” MiG-35. But the dancers pretend not to notice our offers! Or do they think that we will persuade them and dampen in a terrible way !? Well, well, wait for a sign from Vishnu, maybe a thread will break off ...
    AHA.

      You are confused. Who pays - he orders the music. And everyone is ready to supply them. Both Europeans and Americans. There is already a queue =)

    It seemed to me that our carrier-based aviation was outdated. Wouldn't it be better for the Indians to buy old proven decked F-16/18 but with modern avionics stuffing under the hood?

      deck F-16/18

      The main favorite among the Indians is F / A-18 Block3. F-16 is not a carrier-based fighter.
      Boeing (offering F / A-18E / F Super Hornet Block III), Dassault (Rafale F3R), Eurofighter (Typhoon), RSK MiG (MiG-35) and Saab were also invited to participate in the competition for new multi-purpose aircraft for BVS . In the case of the Russian company from the Indian side, it was more likely that a politeness gesture was made, since she no longer considers the MiG proposal seriously after she was delivered with the B.U. airplanes instead of new ones.

        Do Americans not offer their partners slightly used F-18s and other devices? Obviously, this is a reason for the refusal of the purchase of MiGs by the Indians. "Bribes" and "kickbacks" are not invented by us!

          Since February 2010, when the MiG-29K were commissioned, 40 engines were removed from the Indians due to factory defects (this is 62%). The Star Weekly notes that the Indian military spoke of the plane as a machine that was "riddled with problems." At different times, the serviceability of the MiG-29K fleet ranged from 16 to 38%, and the MiG-29KUB fleet ranged from 21 to 47%. https://flot.com/2018/318872/
          By the way, there was an attempt by Russia to enter the Algerian market with a MiG-29СМТ aircraft in the 2006 year, but the customer, having received the first 15 aircraft, returned the fighters to the manufacturer due to the presence of substandard parts.

      Super Hornet is a good and proven aircraft, but ... Indians are still better off buying either Rafali or MiG (now they have both). Otherwise, it turns out to be a complete disagreement in carrier-based aviation - 3 (4 if they accept their Tejas) type of aircraft .. Although the Indians can’t get used to the assorted aircraft in the sun ....

    I suggest that VO editors do not clutter their “image” with news from India. You always get two articles on the same topic. Today is Indian news, and tomorrow a rebuttal to it. And this is already systemic. crying

    not very correct
    Such "incorrectness" on the part of India, incl. in relation to Russian technology is often manifested in recent years. And this contributes to the graters in the Indian departmental offices, and the desire to buy cheaper, and ordinary Indian corruption, and the desire of officials to shift their responsibility to someone else's uncle. Moody trading partner. When “Indian tea” was bought out during the Soviet period, coffee and small consumer goods were much more accommodating.

    Hindus, as always, stir up water to conclude a better deal. The ship is not ready, but Russia is to blame for the late deliveries of aircraft, which they did not even order!
