The United States is stepping up cooperation with India, intending to oust Russia from the country's arms market

The United States intends to move Russia on the Indian arms market by replacing part of the supplied Russian weapons American. Since the military-technical cooperation between Moscow and New Delhi has been going on for more than a decade, this will be done gradually, starting with the launch of some programs.


The United States is launching a joint drone development program with India to develop and further manufacture and export unmanned aerial vehicles. As Eli Ratner, assistant to the head of the Pentagon for security issues in the Indo-Pacific region, said, India intends to replace some of the Russian weapons with American ones, as well as increase its own defense production.

In practice, this means that we will work closely with India to jointly produce and develop capabilities that will meet its goals of modernizing its defenses.

- he added.

In addition to drones, the United States intends to develop larger weapons with India, but this is in the medium and long term. For now, Washington is negotiating cautiously with New Delhi, trying to push Moscow aside without spoiling relations with India, which values ​​cooperation with Russia.

We are having good conversations with our counterparts in India at the highest level.(...) We hope to have more to say soon

Ratner added.

The United States has been talking about intentions to oust Russia from the Indian arms market for a very long time. India spends a lot of money on its defense, trying to catch up and overtake China, with which relations are rather tense. The funds spent on weapons float past Washington, which the United States cannot allow. However, an attempt to scare India by imposing sanctions on the purchase of Russian anti-aircraft systems failed, New Delhi refused to comply with the demands of the Americans. Now the United States is acting in other ways, but they do not forget about sanctions either.

      hi We now have specialists from India as representatives of installation supervision at our facility. They were schooled by the bourgeois, you can feel the hand of old England.
      They seem to be smiling, helpful, smiling, but they refuse to provide technical documentation, citing the fact that they are not authorized to provide it. Only verbal consultations with specific examples and from point to point. Well, we dug up all those with our friendly team. documentation, raked all the schemes, and when the work began to boil, they were a little in a stupor. In addition, some components and assemblies are not listed in the project documentation, but we dug up on them. So, something like this ..... they decided to make monkeys from the Russians with a stick.

    Well, Indians are very picky shoppers. I talked with comrades who represented UVZ products in India at comparative tests in the early eighties. One of the demands was that they stopped the run on the jungle track and demanded that the power plant be removed and installed from the tank using only MTO with the driver and crew of the tank. Then the USSR received a contract for the supply of T-72.

      This, as they say, "was a long time ago and not true." Now, I think, the Indians are corrupted to the point that ours, as you say, change the engine in the middle of the jungle, and the Americans drove through the parade and it’s good

        This, as they say, "was a long time ago and not true."

        Why is it not true, here are the tanks of India now.
        T-72M1 "Ural"
        T-90S "Vladimir"
        T-55
        Arjun Mk.I
        They have problems with their own developments. In 2006, the first official tanks of India came out, which they immediately adopted. Gradually, they will have to completely replace Russian technology. The government's plans quickly failed when they realized in 2008 that their Arjun Mk.I was not capable of competing with the T-90s at that time. Therefore, very few such machines were produced, they turned out to be weak in terms of hodovka. They use the Kachan anti-projectile armor system, on the forehead up to 45 cm thick.

          "For a long time and not true" is not just taken in quotation marks. This is a metaphor. So this expression has lost its relevance. But only in my humble subjective opinion

    Two quotes. What does it mean to be ousted from the market if we are not on the drone market at all, not only in India? If someone sat down in the market and sells persimmons not of the first freshness, should he be considered a competitor of the seller in seeds?

    So what? Does Russia have the ability to supply surpluses to the world market, or does the Russian military-industrial complex mainly work for the foreign market? Provide your own army - then think about others.
    A good and reliable weapon will always find a buyer.

    catch up and overtake China, with which relations are quite tense. So like Xi and Modi shake hands with each other, this is what the Americans see as some kind of Indo-Chinese confrontation

    In my opinion, no one doubted the development of such a situation. Americans would not be Americans if they did not fight for arms markets. And it's time for us to wean from the fact that our weapons are in demand because they are cheaper. The world stops saving on armies. We need quality and advertising (this is one of the reasons for the supply, by the West, of weapons to Ukraine - advertising).

    It is not necessary to complain about the mattresses, but to work ourselves. What a habit we have, constantly on the defensive. Step forward and take off your white gloves and rose-colored glasses. And this should have been done at least a couple of centuries ago!

    USA se snaží získat Indii na svoji stranu a Indie si neuvědomuje, jak je USA nebezpečný partner! USA si uvědomuje, že Indie je miska na vahách, na kterou stranu se přidá. Rusko na India nijak netlačí, kdežto pro USA je to rozhodující partner, aby USA nezůstala sama jako kůl v plotě! Indie dělá velkou historickou chybu, že si USA pouští k tělu!!!

      Indie dělá pouze to co je pro ni výhodné, bez ohledu na cizí zájmy jak Ruské tak Americké a tak je to správně.

    Another tantrum!
    The USA and Europe cooperate with India and push out the USSR at the beginning. and then Russia. And the Indians ride on our tanks, fly on our planes, shoot from our machine guns ...
