      it’s interesting to me too. Our takr with 8 (!) fighters dangled in the Mediterranean. Or the purchase plans send us back to the year 30, and the SuXNUMX Indians have been around for a long time. I’m not talking about increasing the number of aircraft, but about simply replacing the spent resources !

      Our defense industry is being pulled out of the swamp after the collapse of Soviet industry; it is just the orders of INDIA that are being pulled out, and more than one Russian city was saved from ruin
      So ours is still in the project, a dumb gold reserve IN LARGE QUANTITY.

    One squadron with a “carrier” will increase the striking power of the Indian fleet by an order of magnitude, expanding the sphere of influence of India itself.

    Russia and India - strategic partnership for peace - Valentin Sidorov

    First of all, it should be noted that relations between Russia and India have no analogues. History has disposed in such a way that they are not overshadowed by any clouds: over the centuries not a single military conflict, not a single meaningful clash of interests. In the practice of international communication, such a unique phenomenon can be perceived as a miracle and, in any case, as an encouraging guideline of our relations.

    And ironic about our supplies is the destiny of not quite decent people who do not understand anything in matters of international relations.

      partners do not mean allies. the whole partnership is to purchase equipment. And then the Indians gave preference to the tender recently to other "partners"

    We specifically drove them with the aircraft carrier. Fail Indian partners.

      You mean “Vikramatvoitutyki?” Yes, it’s just some kind of stupidity. According to the Audit Chamber of India, building your own aircraft carrier would have been cheaper, and its service life would have been twice as long. In February 2009, the construction of the first Indian aircraft carrier began, in 2014 it is planned to be included in the Indian Navy.

    But is it possible to buy this Vikramatvoyetitki in the ass and call her Admiral Gorshkov her mother in India.
