        And read Wikipedia? :) The population is 1 210 193 422 people ... for each 5 bucks a year, here's the money for the contract ... and they tear up to 70% of income from them, and that's far from 5 dollars.

    It would be VERY surprising if India would prepare pilots in another place for our planes and aircraft carrier ...

      I will correct: "To study military science in a real way ..." Although I am pessimistic about such news - they do not really allow their people to fly. We have fewer "palubniks" than cosmonauts ... and the "aircraft carrier" is practically training.
      Although where do they go, these Indians? From a submarine ... wink

    But, we will obviously know the principles of air combat, according to which the Indian side will act)))) Well, in general, except for a joke, everything is logical: our planes, respectively, and our teachers!

    Right! The money needs to be returned. The "Nitka" complex under construction (Aviation ground test training complex), in the Kuban, will need to be economically loaded. And its delivery is scheduled for October this year.

        And what's the difference that he is from Ukraine? These are our people, the same Russians. Just by misunderstanding, I live in another state. But soon they will return under the wing of the mother of Russia.

        And our "Thread" is awaiting ... it seems that the system for imitating the movement of the deck is no longer working - it stands "rooted to the spot" ... and they were going to rent this very "Thread" to the same Indians ...

    The principle of gender is not expected. Vit aircraft carrier Russian and they will be trained in the Russian Federation.
    The main thing is that the students would not fight against the Russian Federation in the future

      Why would they fight against us, we have no common borders. We need to be very friendly, because they have a border with China.

    While the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier and the Russian cruiser Admiral Gorshkov will sail to India, Indian pilots will be practicing plenty, the main thing is for everyone to sail. Soft landing them!

        Changed with. Such a full-fledged aircraft carrier made ours him from an aircraft carrier of the Soviet cruiser. request They do not philosophize in this matter, from the very beginning they buy, albeit not large ones, but only aircraft carriers.

            So already rivet yourrequest and what characteristically fails, it is not an easy task to construct and construct. Even the Chinese have not yet been able.
