Indian Air Force wants to urgently receive more than 30 Russian MiG-29 and Su-30MKI in connection with the border conflict

The Indian media reported that the command of the Indian Air Force appealed to the Ministry of Defense with an appeal to urgently purchase more than three dozen Russian fighters.


This call was reportedly made against the backdrop of a sharp aggravation of the situation in the disputed region of Ladakh, where a bloody clash between Indian and Chinese troops occurred this week.

According to published information, the Indian Air Force wants to get 12 Su-30MKI fighters and 21 MiG-29s. At the same time, it was proposed to immediately upgrade the MiG-29 fighters to the MiG-29UPG variant. It is proposed to assemble the Su-30MKI at HAL enterprises (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) from the received kits.

This information caused a stir primarily in India itself. It is noted that if earlier in the Air Force the countries stated the need to purchase more than a hundred of the latest fighters, including the French Rafale, now they urgently decided to purchase the MiG-29 and Su-30MKI. And this despite the fact that these Russian fighters in India were often criticized - they say, "obsolete equipment."

Criticism is now heard against the government of the country, which for years can not decide which fighters to buy for it.

Rafale contracted, but getting the planes stretched out over a long period of time. There is no data on when, in New Delhi, they finally decide on other fighter options for the modernization of the Air Force fleet. Recall that neither MiG-29 nor Su-30MKI was on this list. And on the short list, in addition to all the same “Rafales,” appear American F-18, Swedish JAS 39 Gripen and Russian MiG-35 and Su-35. Also, the United States is trying to promote its modernized F-16s to the Indian market. The upgrade is designated as F-21 (specifically for India).

    It must be supplied. If there is. Although our Air Force does not have export equipment, but an order for the plant, it’s been a year .... It was necessary to pick less in the nose, now we would ship it.
    There seems to be no war, but tension ..... and China keeps our pebbles in our bosom.

      And so, we must offer them that they would now buy out the Bulgarian MiGs, and Russia would modernize them ... And with Su ... I think that within a year Sukhoi will cope with the task of supplying the necessary components

            Unfortunately, they can afford it. Hope only while they can. While they are much thicker than ours (GDP, I mean), we have to reckon with this. And also it is impossible to discount the possibility of the PRC turning into the arms of the n-owls, for example, after the Indians used our weapons on their troops. So, my opinion is that there is no need to refuse from deliveries of BT to India, but the implementation deadlines should be postponed for as long as possible. And there, you see, the dust settles down. hi

            This is at best, just when the relationship is cooling. And if China joins the anti-Russian sanctions, and even persuades its satellites to the same, then many of our manufacturers (not only aircraft) will be able to change their place of registration to a city with a "falling" tower.
            And only authors of the Kama Sutra will remain with us in serious trading partners, which will have to be tested by the brains of the trade representatives of our side from cover to cover.
            Therefore, my opinion: no need to aggravate. Let the elephant and the dragon calm down, disperse into holes. And there: Oops! Hello again! hi

                China is currently our situational ally and a very large trading partner. And we really depend on him to some extent. And also China is one of the few states that can afford to pursue an independent policy. There is a dependence - and this is not the worst. We walk around a little fat, we grow a bang on the table, and then we'll see how the chip lies.

                It is unclear why you made such a conclusion. I just think that in the context of the heated conflict between India and China, we should refrain (temporarily) from the supply of weapons to the Indians, because we risk losing the strongest ally at the moment, even if only temporary. Well, and in the appendage I want to say that in the war of India and China, I would put 5: 1 on the PLA. Therefore, I consider it unreasonable to jeopardize our weapons systems. hi

      Well, they already answered above:
      1. Deliveries of "Rafale" are delayed (due to coronavirus);
      2. Aircraft - unfamiliar! Until his will master (both flight and technical personnel), while they create the necessary infrastructure ....... Yes, and with weapons - problems (and not small!) - it is necessary to adapt to what the Indians already have, or to master a new one .... And that’s all - time, time, time .....
      In short, until "Rafali" becomes a FULL-VALUED component of the Indian Air Force ..... Well, two years, and maybe 3-4 will last ... And here - everything is already good for a long time mastered!

    Firstly, the Su-30 and MiG-29 are no longer manufactured. Production is set up for the MiG-35 and PAK-FA machines.
    Secondly, until China and India cease hostilities and the situation moves onto the rails of mutual peace, respect and control, weapons will not be delivered to either China or India. This is a definitive answer that has no catch.
    Russia will not sponsor the war of India and China.
    If India believes that it needs support, the Russian military is ready to guarantee the security of India, provided that the two countries are located at the point of contact. With appropriate provision of equipment and financial problems, on the one hand, and legal and physical guarantees on the other.
    I. e. Russia has the right to use force at its discretion to comply with the peace protocol, and China and India are responsible for the victims, without the right to challenge in third instances.
    Arbitration is granted in the Basmanny court of Moscow.

      The MiG-35 and MiG-29SMT and MiG-29M2 are essentially the same thing. It will be necessary to build an SMT. But I suppose it will be for SMT located in the Reserve, Kursk. 10 year old ....
      Su-30SM, which in fact is the Su-30MKI quite a series in itself. Last year, 4 Su-30SM Belarusians and 4 Su-30SM Armenians were built offhand, and for us the contract has not yet been completed. Fleet offhand did not receive 4 sides.

        Is the Mig-29SMT and Mig35 the same thing?
        I just thought there would be at least some qualitative differences in favor of the 35th. That the Mig-29M2 is almost the 35th I am ready to believe, but if there are no differences from the SMT, then the 35th is all very bad.

      They want an AFAR on the Su-30, and ours, as I understand it, cannot do it. Or they can, but in the available dimensions of the Su-30 fairing, it shows significantly worse parameters than the PFAR Bars or Irbis, which does not upset the Indians themselves.

          This didn’t fall for us - to give such a fat piece to the side. The problem is that the size of the Su-30 under the radar is 900mm (emnip) and the AFAR radar of similar indicators takes at least 1200-1300mm and this is not only ours - the Western ones are hardly better, the physics is the same for everyone. It will not work out to radically change the nose compartment under the radar, which means they wouldn’t have to curl up, but take Irbis.

            Which western fighter has a fairing more than Su27-30-35? F35 and F22 have much less. And there is AFAR. F16 and F18 are also smaller. And there is AFAR. F15 is similar. And there is AFAR.

    The Indian media reported that the command of the Indian Air Force appealed to the Ministry of Defense with an appeal to urgently purchase more than three dozen Russian fighters.


    In such a populous country, there are many media outlets! They write different things in them! There is a candidate for the acquisition of various weapons, and most of all for the acceleration of national weapons programs. In April, the Ministry of Finance of India tightened its policy of allocating funds to the Ministry of Defense programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The recent border conflict with China has flared up, giving the military a reason to demand a review of the Finance Ministry’s decision and an increase in defense spending! It is unlikely that India will buy used aircraft. They have accumulated a lot of trash. Most likely they will accelerate tenders for the acquisition of new ones, and also increase the financing of their projects. India has clearly decided - it will develop its own, but it will not do without foreign assistance! Here it is possible to intensify technological cooperation with other countries, including Russia. But since Russia has a special relationship with China, India relies more on help from the United States.

    They do not need airplanes. Another attempt, if not to put it on its side, but at least to achieve neutrality of the Russian Federation in a potential conflict with China. When the conflict with Pakistan was, Hindus also remembered sharply about the purchase of weapons from us.

    It looks more like fake news, since initially it was nonsense about "here and now", "yesterday", and several dozen planes.

    But all the same, thanks to the Chinese comrades for setting the brains of the Indians. Although it’s good for ourselves, despite the fact that we supply quite modern weapons to the Indians, it’s better for the Chinese, the profile of Uncle Sam in the neighbor’s window does not smile at all.
