    At first they bought similar systems, including ours, now, as in the case of Arjun, they begin their production. So far, of course, it is not impressive, but gradually experience is accumulating and we are losing the sales market. This is alarming. All the same, it is impossible to share all the secrets - we should not just be a step away, but a hundred meters further. When there is a stable foreign buyer from a friendly state, this means the overload of our production with securing orders and a constant influx of currency.

          You seem to have not seen their border guards on the border with Pakistan. Indians love this business - all kinds of window dressing. Pakistanis are also not far behind.
          Nobody will force us to engage in such garbage - not that mentality.

            Well, they have such a mentality. Tanks in ruffles, dancing around guns ... And it seems to me that their attitude to weapons is the same, more ostentatious. Also caste affects. And during operation, they suddenly crash planes, but we still have the same ones, and even fly older in Syria. The aircraft carrier burns their boilers, because it turns out that they know better what to make of them, the repaired boat is drowned, the MiG-21s they generally crashed very often ...
            Here in our parades all the equipment without sparkles and bells and whistles, at most there is a guard tape on board, even the salute guns look like combat ones. Although the line soldiers were also turned into "parrots" for some reason, this was not the case before. Now I have revised the recording of the parade in 1945, everything is no-frills, but beautiful and solid. We also show historical equipment in a form as close as possible to combat. And the Chinese at the parade, remember, had salute guns on "molding" and "passenger" rubber, "Kalash" white, chrome-plated and gilded (specially saved video). Well, these are parades primarily to demonstrate the combat readiness of troops. I have a photo of Indian tanks at the parade with a palanquin platform on the tower in ribbons and all kinds of color, like on elephants ...

            We are also falling, exploding and drowning, but reasons of a different order, you yourself know, which are unrelated and surmountable with a mentality.

      This is a natural process. No normal state will pay money to the side if it is technically capable of doing it on its own.
      Only we need not think about the lost markets, but ahead of the competition in technology. Then the market will always be.

      Matvey! You are all for the arms trade! And you are not misled by the fact that the Russian Federation trades in the latest systems, which themselves are still at a minimum. It's that not crazy - just money at any cost. Or do you think that this is for the good of Russia. This is naive. Give at least one example confirming that due to export we have something for ourselves ??? Perhaps the development of the Ka-50-2 "Erdogan" as an intermediate link to the Ka-52. But this was at the expense of Kamov's own resources. I think that everything is simpler - the oil feeder has become scarce, but the appetites have remained, so they tend to sell what they buy (they just take the weapon) without caring about the consequences at all. It is quite normal for us to call the first people we meet as friends, and then they are stabbed in the back or a shot. What to guess-Turkey is on everyone's lips ...
      Hindus are also not friends, they are traders who see only their own benefits. It’s a profit for them, but we have a shortage of military equipment. What enters the troops is tears, Shame!

            A single-shot volley of axes includes 4000 missiles. Do we have so many Shells and other air defense systems ??? With such a weak industry, which also works to the limit of the possible, it is criminal to dump real equipment to the left. You cannot close a dollar.

              I agree, Almaz-Antey won the development tender. The money was transferred to them for this. The point is something else. Domestic products within the framework of the state defense order, which are exported, and these are financial receipts from them, I meant that. Yes, something goes to developers, something to manufacturers in factories. But I don’t remember a single case, as some are trying to assert that instead of 2 planes to the left they are building 1 for themselves ??? How then to explain that 50 Su-30s in the Russian Federation, only Indus have more than 200, in total it took about 400 !!! During the 90s, 28 Varshavyankas were built, nothing to itself. Only when the roasted cock pecked, the 6 PL contract was signed at the Black Sea Fleet. About 500 T-90s for tanks and about 5000 for the cordon. What is it like? And behind all these figures are the lives of the Russian military and not only.

                I’m certainly not a navy, but it seems that this project consisted of Halibut, aka Kilo and a black hole for Nat. There are only two improved Kilo, that is, natural Warsaw women underwater.

                So the Crimea was returned to us and flew our Indian-Vietnamese Admiral series. So far, only a couple of Admirals. Four on the stocks. without the German mtu they won’t swim in the ocean for two whole years - what a nuisance. Two years later they will go to sea with other weapons.

                Behind all the numbers is the budget.
                If the budget cannot afford five thousand tanks, or maybe only five hundred, 500 will fall into the state defense order.
                If the budget can not afford 30 Warsaw and maybe 3, in the state defense order 3.

                  Budget-budget, but there is also a human factor! For example Serdyukov-Shoigu. The most important thing is desire. You can report on an empty budget and cut the state defense order. And the export came and went, at least the main part. If you own accounting, then it is not difficult to analyze the ways of kickbacks. Enterprises often have one production line, which is determined by the availability of personnel. At UVZ, one for Armata, the other for T = 90, and between them "Uncle Vasya". And at the helm of the company is a person far from production, an effective top manager. The funny thing is, from what we are writing here, absolutely nothing will change. Let off some steam and okay.

                You read the agreements on the division of the Black Sea Fleet and other agreements between Russia and Ukraine that the drunk EBN signed. So Russia was supposed to coordinate its naval composition with Ukraine. And only after the transition of Crimea to Russia we were able to bring the Black Sea Fleet in order and update the naval composition. It was not for nothing that the Caspian flotilla strengthened in the south, in order to partially shift part of the tasks of the Black Sea Fleet to it.

        Fsepropalo?
        Do you think that if we don’t sell, then all the volumes will be purchased by the Ministry of Defense or what?
        Do you think that purchases under the state defense order are limited only by the possibilities of release?
        I’m disappointing - there is not enough budget in the country to buy everything that the defense industry can produce.
        Only products that are outside the contracted volumes of the Ministry of Defense are exported.
        And yes, export orders help our manufacturers. Stupidly, they give working capital, they give an opportunity for the development of production, its modernization, and development work. The profitability of these orders is hundreds of percent.
        Plus, the larger the output, the cheaper the product, the lower its cost, and the cheaper it is for the Ministry of Defense.
        Understand - the issue of public procurement does not rest on the possibility of release, the possibility of release is more than the defense Ministry buys. These are alpha and omega - the primary implementation is on state defense orders, uncontracted volumes are exported, for which the defense ministry has no budget and does not count on.

      What's improved there? Inadequate clone of the upgraded "Hurricane" with ERPs increased to 70 km range, due to lengthening and reducing the standard ammunition load from 90 + to 70 + kg, in fact. Is there 12 more guides instead of 16, the nomenclature is poorer. With the "Tornado" 70-120 km and did not stand next. A heavy two-module one - accelerator + gliding charge, can be compared with good OTP in range.
      And the Indians will purchase tornadoes for REP, Eres with self-aiming electrodes and corrective UAVs from us anyway. As well as high-precision cluster, concrete-breaking and OD versions of fillings and heads, either purchase from the same hurricanes, since the caliber is suitable, or it can be made to order.
      In general, now large-caliber MLRS are more relevant. Due to self-aiming elements, the same autonomous battery UAV spotters, the possibility of creating on the basis of "Operational-tactical batteries" from an accelerator + high-precision missile with a ramjet engine with different SN and ammunition (in which the comrade was right - we need to do something new, and there will always be demand), and the fact that more often in general it will be necessary to work by points, and not by area.
      And so - a commendable desire to develop their own defense industry, even in terms of a dying one and a half-speed fighter. And the system is created from research institutes to factories, and in the event of a conflict, they will not be superfluous. So Iran is doing it. This is how China began. From the "attack of clones" of the products of the USSR defense industry complex.

      With "Brahmos" a little different story. The treaty on the non-proliferation of missile technologies, limiting the entire 300 km, has become disastrously outdated. For anti-ship missiles up to 700, and some PRR, SAM and RVV already under 400 range. The aircraft variant from the Su-30 Brahmos is no longer 300, but 500+ follows the "High, high-low" trajectory - 300 limitation for launch from the ground / water. Objectively, it is necessary to withdraw from the contract, for targeted missiles - i.e. RCC, PRR, essno RVV and SAM, so it’s nonsense that if the R-27E launched from M2,5 and 17km loses the target, it drops by 350km, the R-37 in general is HZ, the S-300 has a ballistic range of up to 470km, leaving only for OTR and promising MLRS, and forget about it, but for now ...
      Here is the JV brahmos, here is Mini, which will have a range of up to 400 from the ground, and brahmos-2, i.e. our hypersonic "Zircon" has up to 900 km, if from 13 km and M2,3 from the bomb bay of the Backfires they fly to the AUG, as much as the ground range, HZ, but I think 500 will already be. Therefore, here the joint venture was initially fictitious and formal and funded R&D and testing of both knots and sausages in general in Russia, if you know this story. At the same time, the Indians "got hooked" on the unclassified part. Then they gave the promised under the license, and although they collect it, they themselves, and mold their own uncomplicated details. Moreover, in Russia, the defense industry does not physically have as many working heads and hands in the defense industry as to ensure export without transferring at least a part to the localities.

    I don’t think that Indians or Pakistanis in a battle will ride around like a cannon or sentinels. These are demonstrations, such as our Kremlin regiment or military song and dance ensemble. They can also laugh at us.

    India’s desire (commendable) to absorb technology and import substitution forced Israel to delay the operational readiness of Barak-8 for two years, as India had its financial contribution to the program. As India Today reported on Monday, after the successful testing of the Barak-8 (LR-SAM) from an Indian destroyer, it was decided to equip 23 ships under construction and modernized under contracts for several billion dollars with Israeli IAI and Rafael. The first stage (solid fuel engine with rudders) is Indian, the second, highly maneuverable and the control system. and guidance from an active Israeli radar. The Indians coped with their contractual part, reproducing Israeli technology and the system is ready including for export to third countries ...

    During the 90s, 28 Varshavyankas were built, nothing to itself

    With numbers, you have a complete mess. Let's start with the fact that during the entire construction of the boats of Project 877 "Halibut", namely they were called "Varshavyanka", 43 boats were built (44 boats were being completed according to the project 636M)
    Of these, in the 90s - zero years, NINETEEN BOATS were built. Including for the Russian Navy - SIX.
    Where did you get the idea that 28 Varshavyankas were built and everything was only for export - probably only you know. Even if we add 16 export boats of projects 636, 636M and 06361, then 28 will not work. There will be THIRTY FIVE. So with the calculations you are not particularly

    Vladimir! Russia has existed as a state since 1991. B-187 (zakl05.91), even the B-494 belongs to the USSR - this is at the Koms.on Amur plant, plus a couple on Krasny Sormovo B-190 (92nd year) and B-345 (93rd). Total 4 PL. The rest of the Sormovo submarines and everything from the Admiralty shipyards are exclusively for export, This is until November 28.11.2013, 10, before the Novorossiysk was laid down - nothing !!! Write-off only. So digital science has nothing to do with it. For XNUMX years, not a single submarine. China, India, Vietnam, Algeria, but not to yourself. I really was not engaged in diesel engines, but those submarines are not already in service. Everything was written off and sawed.
