Indian Air Force lost over 6 years 46 fighters

Indian Air Force lost over 6 years 46 fightersThe Indian Air Force has lost 46 fighters in the past six years. On this, as reported by Lenta.ru with reference to Flightglobal, said Indian Defense Minister Arakaparambil Kurian Anthony. According to him, the greatest losses occurred in the 2009 year, when the Indian Air Force lost ten aircraft. Most often, the Air Force lost fighter MiG-21. In addition, during this period, the Air Force lost fighters Sepecat Jaguar and Su-30MKI.


To reduce the loss of combat aircraft, the Indian Air Force is currently implementing several programs to improve flight safety. In particular, we are talking about the dispersal of birds over airfields, as well as more thorough training of pilots on simulators. In November 2010, the Indian Air Force announced that in 45 the percentage of crashes caused by the aircraft was a pilot error. In 42, the percentage of crash events occur due to technical problems, and the remaining 13 percent comes from unpredictable incidents, including bird strikes.

For the Indian Air Force is characterized by a high level of accidents. In particular, from 1970 to 2000, the country annually lost an average of 22-23 aircraft and helicopters, and since 2000 of the year - on 10-15 aircraft per year. Currently, the Indian Air Force is undergoing a large-scale modernization of its fleet. For these purposes in the coming 12 years it is planned to spend about one hundred billion dollars. This amount includes the purchase of training aircraft, fighters, military transport aircraft, anti-aircraft missile systems and bombers.

    This is a failure. PLA will defeat even in cross-border conflict.

      In the PLA, such incidents, I think, are no less. Still, the fleet of old aircraft and they are very large. Just freedom of speech is less than in India. wink

      I support insults against enemies - since there is an information war - and it’s never harmful to call pendos pendos again - but at the same time they stuck to all of them - the henchmen

      The Hindus did nothing wrong with us — they almost allied with the USSR, saved our defense industry and the military industrial complex during the years of collapse and democracy, Russia's partners in creating the latest weapons (investing not only money but also brains — their programmers are already world-class — 5th generation fighter programs , Bramos and now we will do hypersonic anti-ship missiles together - bypassing even pendos)

      Hindus confront China - which our future (after pendos) probable geopolitical adversary - having a country like India will always help deter China

      Yes. I agree that, for example, Iran or India still lag behind the level of the USSR even in the 70s - but neither one nor the other curses their language - they are with us in the same boat

    Probably to write this comment I used an OS written by Indian programmers.

    With such trends, it is easy to calculate that every 30 years the number of crashed planes / helicopters per year is reduced by 5 pieces. That is, by the year 2100, there will be no flying objects in India. This means either the pilots will learn to drive cars or the birds will leave the borders of India.

    You also need to first look at what% of the accident from the total number of flights and time in the air and compare these SPECIFIC indicators with China, for example

    Maybe the Indians just fly more Or a large fleet of old planes

    It should be reminded to amateurs to call someone stupid - this is very low. We have very few potential brothers to confront China, and those who look at least a little favorably are fully supportive. It is to support, not praise. The Russian Armed Forces in accidents have not far gone from India. Ours fly much less. Analyze the state of our weapons. It’s becoming very not funny. The PLA is able to defeat both India and Russia ... Let me remind you of a joke: the CPC chairman calls the Chinese Ministry of Defense and sets the task to enter Russia on the route Beijing-Irkutsk-Novosibirsk-Yekaterinburg with The task is FIND the Russian army. Very sad. But it really is.
