TRDDF AL-41F1


India plans to soon begin exporting spare parts and accessories for Russian aircraft engines AL-31FP and RD-33. According to Jane's Defense Weekly, on February 7, the Indian company HAL and Rosoboronexport signed a memorandum.

According to the publication, India and Russia plan to sign an agreement under which the Indian state-owned company Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will export parts and accessories manufactured for the Su-30MKI and MiG-29 of the Indian Air Force to foreign engines AL-31FP and RD-33 customers whose countries are armed with these two types of Russian aircraft.

The agreement will provide for the export of aircraft engine components, as well as the provision of logistics services to “friendly countries”.

The Indian company itself stated that potential customers for the purchase of spare parts for AL-31FP are Algeria, Angola, Armenia, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia and Vietnam, RD-33 - Algeria, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar and Serbia.

Recall that HAL produces Russian aircraft engines under license. AL-31FP in Nasik (western India, the state of Maharashtra), and RD-33 - in Koraput (eastern Indian state of Orissa).

    and what is the benefit to Russia? Give the Indians markets? .. Why? Then - what is the quality of Indian engines and spare parts for them? Are you not afraid of losing your reputation?

      I doubt that the slogan "Indian means quality" will be perceived without laughter.

        I think that there will be no people interested in the Indian ZiP.

      Indeed, where is just meaning and where is common sense?
      Will they sell spare parts to the Chinese, and they will examine it for the work of their "Xerox"?
      And who benefits from this ?!

        SPTA SPTA discord. Bolts, nuts, cotter pins, clamps ... - also spare parts. I do not think that they will produce turbines and compressors.

      There is a benefit for Russia, the risks are great if it is really made in India. BUT! The “made in Russia” problem remains at a very low level of service. With rare exceptions, everything is very bad. Indians, on the other hand, are very strong entrepreneurs, with close ties and more opportunities. Almost as sneaky as the Chinese))

      Judging by the article, spare parts will be produced in Russia, but the Indians will be distributors. It’s bad that we can’t do it ourselves, but better than losing markets due to poor service.

        so we lose them in the case of cooperation with the Indians.

        Probably, the problem should be solved not in such an extravagant way, but in a more reasonable way - by selecting the appropriate personnel and reorganizing the service departments

          The fact that I need to solve the problem, with both hands I am in favor. The fact that at the moment there is NO service, but something needs to be done is a fact.

          It’s like with a crane in the sky and a tit in his hand. You can rely on the crane and do something, but the titmouse can be completely lost and left empty-handed.

      It all depends on what and who is meant by the phrase "Russia" ..
      I am sure that those who sign such agreements do not remain without profit ..

      If the Indians will produce different rubber gaskets and seals, instead of complex units, then a ride.

      What are the indian details lol
      Almost everything is made from our spare parts, but only assembled in India. They called it made in India. So they assemble the T-90S, along with the Su 30MKI.

          That's it, the components. Russia did not sell licenses to anyone, but did not sell production, or even sell modern turbofan engines. The main, technologically sophisticated components are produced in us, in India, only a trifle, which is not secret know-how. This is precisely what they were allowed to sell, which will definitely improve after-sales service, we have problems with this. This can bring new contracts.

    I am sure that a hefty part of the profit will be transferred to Ross. organizations like royalties. This decision can be both positive (Russian factories can’t cope with increased orders, switch to the production of more modern models, etc.) and negative reasons such as unprofitability of the output due to an increase in overhead costs (heat and electricity prices, lack of qualified technologists and workers, etc.). I hope that such steps are thoroughly considered and a hundred times weighed all the pros and cons ..

    There is also such a moment - to more firmly link the Indians to our aircraft industry through an increase in the production of HAL engines and spare parts for Sushki and MiGs. Binding through cooperation is now a very common practice.
