The United States intends to get India to abandon Russian weapons

Washington intends to continue demanding that India refuse to sign major military contracts with Russia. This was stated by the Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs Clark Cooper.


Speaking to reporters, Clark said that the United States would seek from India to refuse to sign major military contracts with Russia, such as the supply of S-400 air defense systems or Su-35 fighters. According to him, the Indian military should abandon Russian equipment in order "not to jeopardize relations with the United States." At the same time, he clarified that the restrictions do not apply to all Russian weapons.

(...) do not jeopardize further favorable opportunities (of military-technical cooperation with the United States), which may be complicated by (the purchase) of significant Russian weapons. Again: this is not all. But something like the S-400 would be a challenge. (...) Something like (military aircraft of the brand) Sukhoi, Su-35, would be a challenge

- said Cooper.

At the same time, he confirmed that Washington knows about the long-standing military-technical ties between Moscow and New Delhi, and therefore does not demand to completely abandon Russian weapons overnight, but in the future, India must make a choice to preserve its defenses.

Looking at this from the point of view of future modernization, ensuring the maturity of the defense potential, we are conducting a frank conversation in (both) capitals about what is possible and what can threaten modernization (of the Indian armed forces)

- he said, adding that he would not disclose the Pentagon's plans for the probable supply of India with mobile THAAD missile defense systems, Patriot air defense systems, fifth-generation F-35 fighters.

      They sell their own without technology, but the Indians need to focus on this

        Why do Indians need technology?
        What will they do with it?

        I really don't know any Indian developments based on someone's technology.
        No one's own, and strangers don't use,

        We once did not have the technology and bought an engine from the British. Now we have our own.

    The degree of cunning of the Indians is well known; the question is whether they have iron eggs or not, and also common sense.
    The states are cynically bending over their allies, and the Indians will be thrown without hesitation. China is an example of this.
    However, they may not have time to get to India, they will eat themselves out, from the inside. what

      Indians will not refuse. And they will throw the states. Sooner or later.

    The matter, of course, is more than theirs ... but if they switch to a completely NATO weapon and they will lose everything ... the Americans will exercise control ... and the Chinese are not fools, they will take the Indians with their bare hands ...

        this is how Rosoboronexport and the Russian military-industrial complex generally explain their failures. very unconvincing! and "dancing" with contracts is the normal behavior of a gun buyer. India is the only major buyer of Russian weapons for real money, and it looks like Russia has already lost it.

    In fact, the United States is offering the Indians to disarm?
    In India, more than 80% of its weapons are Soviet and Russian developments, the Americans are fond of it.

    Indians can only be persuaded to do this by offering a steep pullback,
    but not to buy, but only to rent.
    That is, you will have to roll back constantly and a lot. The United States will not be able to pull this off, their weapons are so-so, and the prices are hoo.
    Selling at a loss is not their rule.

    The question is only special for f35,
    similar only to the USA, China, Russia.
    China obviously disappears,
    The US and Russia are not going to transfer key technologies.
    And the Indians want exactly this appendage.

      They themselves do not know what they want .... T-90 technologies have been transferred to Su30MKI, too, partially. And yet, purchases are sluggish and squeaky. And the modernization stands still.

    -Yes, it is unlikely ... -It will work out for the Americans ...
    -Indians have already flown well with the purchase of expensive "Rafale" ... -Now they have already come to "sobering up" ... -So they again transferred all their "attention" to Russian military equipment ...

    And our respective department appeared due to the fact that ours took out Helmut Grettrup. And nothing that NASA was formed 13 years after the end of the war ??? No need to pull "by the ears" of what was not interconnected.
    NASA was created on July 29, 1958 through the reorganization of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA, abbreviated "NAKA"), which was organized on March 3, 1915.

    Have you tried to read carefully? They offer not to disarm the Indians, but to BUY WEAPONS from them ...
