    Very good.
    It is important in the same vein, both in military cooperation and in political work.
    India, if anything, is a strong ally.

      Russia has only two allies - the army and navy.
      Ukraine was not only an ally and partner, but also one family.
      And what did the puppeteers do with them?
      Everything is much more complicated.

      "India, if anything, is a strong ally."
      Quite a dubious statement, interesting - what is it based on. First: "if what" - what is this? An armed conflict between Russia and NATO? Suppose ... Well, where does India? Are we connected with India by appropriate agreements?
      "The idea of ​​creating a strategic triangle Russia-India-China was the first of the well-known political figures to be put forward by Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov back in 1998. Unable to stop the NATO operation being prepared against Yugoslavia, Primakov called for cooperation between the three countries as a kind of counteraction to unipolarity in the world However, it took several years for this proposal to was supported by diplomats."
      What do we have:
      - The key mechanism of bilateral interaction is the Intergovernmental Russian-Indian Commission for Trade, Economic, Scientific, Technical and Cultural Cooperation;
      - Expanding interagency ties;
      - Cooperation in the military and military-technical fields is developing successfully .... Since October 2005, joint counter-terrorism military exercises have been held, and since April 2007 also naval exercises ...;
      - Contacts are being made through law enforcement and control bodies, including the Supreme Court and the Accounts Chamber of Russia. Agreements on mutual legal assistance in criminal, civil and commercial matters, an extradition agreement, a memorandum of understanding on the procedure for the transfer and reception of illegal migrants, as well as a number of interdepartmental documents were signed.
      Everything is great .... but no for some reason main allied treaty (as in Russia with Armenia. for example).
      So - good partners - it is, but the allies ..., not a fact.

    The second aircraft carrier of India is the flesh of the first, that is, "Admiral Gorshkov".
    I am sure that without our technical assistance in equipping this aircraft carrier will not do.

    To earn money by selling technologically sophisticated equipment with its subsequent maintenance and not trade in minerals - this is the way of the revival of Russia.

    Well, India chose air defense systems for its frigates and aircraft carriers.
    On the night of December 30, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Defense conducted successful tests of the Israeli air defense system Barak 8, designed for air defense of ships from aircraft, anti-ship missiles and guided bombs. The defense department calls the acquisition of this complex "an important milestone in the development of the country's defense capability" and "a giant leap forward in improving air defense capabilities."
    The Israeli air defense system, developed jointly by IAI and Rafael, will be installed on the Soviet aircraft carrier "Admiral Gorshkov" purchased from Russia and renamed "Vikramaditya". Last year, the Indian Ministry of Defense finally abandoned the Russian Kashtan-type anti-aircraft missile and artillery system (ZRAK) for self-defense of ships, preferring to install the Barak 8 air defense system on the Vikramaditya.

      Obviously BRAMOS is Indian as planned. And all this will be "guided" by the Israeli AFAR radars (the "holes" in the photo turn black) and, therefore, by the Israeli Combat Information System. Both active and passive electronic warfare - Israeli, and anti-submarine boosters, torpedo traps, and 25-30 mm machine guns and the naval version of "Spike" for self-defense against small size. It is possible that Rostec also has an opportunity to make big money if it is compatible with Israeli logistics, which is doubtful ... Of course, Russian aviation equipment for MIGs.

    Russia plans to take part in equipping a new Indian aircraft carrier

    In short: "Russia is planning." If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans. We've gotten similar pseudo news. You need to write about real things. And then at the exhibition they will come to the stand with Russian products and look at the "news" at once - 98 countries are interested in our products. That's what exhibitions are to be looked at. Or more. When two countries go to war, both "plan" to win. Plans don't always come true.

    What for then, the Russian Federation tried to order the Mistral helicopter carriers?

    The question, of course, is interesting. Nobody seems to know the answer to it.

    As it seems to me, this is from the "wishlist" area. Why would the Indians step on our rake and clutter up the anti-ship missile carrier? There are escort ships for this. And on an aircraft carrier, it is better to occupy free space with aircraft, fuel and ammunition.

    The matter, of course, is monetary, no doubt. But what are the Indians planning themselves? For some reason, this side of the question is not covered in the article.
