    It happens. The pilot ejected well.
    control system failure reported
    I hope the arrows will not be transferred to the country of the manufacturer? And it happens that they try to cover up their shortcomings (negligence, violation of the service regulations, etc.) with claims to the aircraft, especially when it is politically advantageous.

      With the Indians you need to keep your eyes open. Indians sin by buying up left parts and accessories from around the world.

      With such a decline in technology, the issue of rearmament becomes a priority. And the fashionable, treasury French "rafal" will not help here - a very expensive chia.

      Rather, it’s time for them to stop dancing around the plane and begin to comply with the service regulations.

        And the MIG that recently fell into the Black Sea is India to blame for this too?

      If their MiG-29s are qualitatively repaired and modernized, then they can still be flown for 20 years. But if they are repaired in a village forge by crooked hands ...

        And in Russia, where are airplanes and helicopters being repaired? Why are they falling? Is the same Indians to blame? ..... Look at the statistics of losses of the military aviation of the Russian Federation, this is not taking into account civilian aircraft ....

          So take a look. But not stupidly and emotionally, reading the messages of "Internet experts", but relying on an investigation of the causes of the drug and conclusions.

        In which forge assembled the first production Su-57, which crashed with the same diagnosis - a failure of the control system? Before blaming the Indians, can you first get to the bottom of the problem? Hindus (and not only them) could never get a normal supply of spare parts from the USSR and the Russian Federation. Dates have always been broken. Troublesome, not very profitable, yes, and where will they go, if you’ve already bought it? So far, restrictions have been applied to India - this has passed. Today in the Indian market, there are the USA, France, Israel, and South Korea ... There are plenty to choose from. And there is nothing to be offended by the Indians when they chose Rafali Migu, Israeli avionics, Russian, Apaches considered Mi better than Korean Biho better than Shell ... And this is just the beginning. We want to succeed in the arms trade market; we need to change our attitude towards potential buyers. And they will reach us!

          If you have penetrated enough, then please bring the conclusions of the commission investigating the causes of this flight accident to everyone here. What exactly was the refusal? What does that flight have been TESTING, and not ordinary in the combat unit. And tests are carried out in order to identify and eliminate all the jambs and so that combatant pilots then have less problems.

            The failure, according to the domestic media, is one and the same - the failure of the management system. Too streamlined? I agree. Therefore, I believe that in both cases there is no need to joke on stupid Indians and bad Su. After all, we don’t know the details, right?

          that's right, to sell the plane and not provide him with the proper after-sale service is the one who so wants to buy. Therefore, why blame the Indians when they buy equipment from other countries and get a full service package for servicing purchased aircraft. Nobody wants to buy a Mig-35, so that later they will face a lot of problems after the sale service.

      They have many complaints about the Mig. 35 are unlikely to buy. Perhaps F-16 (21) will buy. The Americans offer them a well-tuned version

      Don’t give them anything, everything’s not for good. The culture of exploitation is dancing like in Indian films. In the sense of a mess.

    And what is the hunchback version in the picture? The MiG-29CMT was not delivered to the Indians. This is a carabel, or an upgrade for the Indians leads to the installation of additional. tank on the back?

      Statistics. I read a statistical report a year ago on the Internet on the topic of non-combat losses of aviation of the countries of the world and the following figures struck me: in 82 years, starting in 1932 (the year the Indian Air Force was formed), non-combat losses of the Indian Air Force amounted to 1707 aircraft. .

        Let me give you one simple example .. starting in 1963, India received a total of 946 MiG-21s ..
        476 airplanes were lost only on catastrophes .. So believe
