Military Review

Pakistan Air Force Command openly declares its desire to develop cooperation with Russia - Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force

49
In Pakistan, with great respect for the Russian military equipment. This opinion was expressed today in an interview with the correspondent. ITAR-TASS Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force of the Russian Federation, Lieutenant-General Viktor Bondarev. The Russian general visited the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a working visit at the invitation of the Air Force commander of that country.




"The Russian aircraft, delivered to Pakistan, mainly the Mi-17 military transport helicopters, continue to successfully accomplish their tasks in full," Bondarev said. According to him, the Pakistani side appreciated all the advantages of Russian aircraft and helicopters. "Pakistanis are well aware of the situation, they have studied all the possibilities of our aircraft," he said. The commander also expressed confidence that "the issue of its acquisition by Pakistan will be further developed."

Pakistan represents a huge and promising market, Bondarev added. The delegation of this state plans to visit the International Aerospace Salon in Zhukovsky MAKS-2013 in August of this year, the commander-in-chief reported. Also, according to him, there are prospects for a positive solution to the question of the supply to Pakistan of Russian jet engines RD-93, which are equipped with JF-17 - the fighter of the Air Force of this South Asian country (in the picture).

"Representatives of the command of the Pakistani Air Force openly declare their desire to develop cooperation with Russia,” said Viktor Bondarev. “The Pakistanis are hoping for Russian military equipment, as well as for our assistance in training Air Force officers.” The commander noted that in the near future the study of the possibility of training Pakistani cadets in Russia, and vice versa, will begin. There will also be considered the prospect of internships for Russian and Pakistani officers in military schools of the two countries.

"Pakistanis have already invited us to participate as observers in the flight maneuvers held here," Bondarev added. "We are also going to invite our Pakistani colleagues to our command-staff and flight tactical exercises," he added.

      they want to develop something, but the main client and ally is India, therefore, in addition to insignificant systems such as MI-17 helicopters and engines, there is no need to wait for deliveries of more serious systems

      And what do Russians think when Indians flood tenders in favor of NATO technology ??
      Here we can say only one thing: We should more often hint to our Hindu partners that if they want to cooperate, then we don’t need to poke us in the mud, so where it is not necessary, otherwise we can make concessions to Pakistan.

        I think the Russians think it would be necessary to look after Pakistan. And the Indians will be told they say that it’s profitable for you yourself that our officers would keep an eye on your neighbor. And the fact that the Indians don’t like that we sell dviglo for fighters, so we will also sell it to you instantly 35) Moreover, it doesn’t stick with rafals because the Indians of technology and even different buns from the Franks wanted to get together, but it’s kind of not growing together ... So we’ll wait We will see how it will spin up. This is a difficult Eastern delicate matter ....

          Yes, everything from the filing of the United States came from Pakistan. But is China's role in that war really much smaller than Pakistan? What about Iran? And nothing, we are trading with might and main.

      After the US withdraws from Afghanistan, the latter will again hang on us, so it’s nice to make friendship with Pakistan. It was this factor that did not allow for more successful control of Afghanistan in the Afghan war.
      Hindus are already armed against Pakistan, it is time to restore balance, or China and the USA will restore it.

            Мне вообще думается, что все технологии, которые попадут в Пакистан, последний "по дружбе" передаст КНР. Так что, кроме РД-93, ничего не рекомендуется продавать Пакистану, особенно МиГ-35 (КНР заимствует с него технологии для J-31), Су-35 (все БРЭО перекочует на J-20) и 117-е движки (Китай скопирует их и начнет ставить на все семейство подделок Сухого + J-20).

        Hello Rauf. Regarding the deliveries to Israel and the Arabs, I have just delivered weapons to Egypt and Israel as military aid for $ 2 billion, according to the Camp David Agreement, and the rest are purely buying for their money, the same Saudis, Emirates and the like Qatari. The UAE, for example, also buys the same BMP tornadoes from Russia, etc.

But relations with the Hindus and Bangladesh may spoil. They are not friends with Pakistan and may interpret this step not in our favor. And with China, too, they can go bad. Because China and Pakistan have long been friends and cooperate in the field of armaments, and we are climbing into the market that China itself claims to be. Here where not to throw only minuses.
