    India intends to purchase about 130 Su-30MKI fighters from Russia by 2020



    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday November 13, 2012 13:22 MSK
    India intends to purchase about 130 Su-30MKI fighters from Russia by 2020, thus the total number of such jets operated by Indian air forces will increase to 270 ones, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the head of Rosoboronexport’s Department of Air Forces, Sergey Kornev.

    He will head the enterprise’s delegation at "Airshow China — 2012", which opens in Zhuhai on November 13th. "It is planned that Indian air forces will operate about 270 Su-30МКI fighters, which will form the basis of the country’s fighter aviation, by 2020. At present Indian air forces are operating about 140 multi-role Su-30MKI fighters. The fleet has amassed about 100 thousand flight hours", — Kornev said.

    He reminded that the first Russian Su-30MKI fighters were delivered to India in 1996. Nowadays India is carrying out active re-equipment of the combat aircraft fleet and the country intends to provide its air forces with the most advanced aircraft, Kornev noted.

    In accordance with these plans, Indian air forces intend to order additional batch of Su-30MKIs (42 vehicles should be ordered in 2012 – editorial comment). The licensed assembly of the fighters will be carried out by HAL (India). "We have already elaborated the draft contract and transferred it for confirmation to the Indian party. We hope that the contract will be considered and signed by the end of 2012", — Kornev said.

    The number here spoken is 270 MKI. I think that number has already been ordered!

    Please try to comprehend. The article that you've pasted says that India may make additional purchases to take the number of Sukhois to 270. BUT, India has ALREADY placed an order for 270 Sukhois long time back. AND the selection of Rafale was done after the order for Sukhois was placed.

    Maybe you need to be reminded that it was your Chinese brothers-millions of them, who starved to death just a few decades ago under your "great leader", Mao.

    That sort of mass starvation has never taken place in India since 1947. So if we go by the empirical evidence, it is you that should worry about what you will eat, not Indians. :rolleyes:

    Oh, you are determined to upgrade the arsenal, but you don't count in interests or inflation at all? these numbers are in US dollars right?
    This is still a heavy burden on your economy.

    Don't assume too much, I don't have extra implication here, just asked a question out of curiosity, if you can allocate money, you are good in keeping account balanced.

    Under our Chairman Mao, we build up our infrastructure and heavy industry, that make China as China and leave India as India. Chairman Mao is survived by
    Billions Chinese. you as a foreigner hate him means he is a good leader.

    oooohhh... Interest and Inflation... What exactly do those terms mean? Please, please, please let us know. If you can share it with me, I will let our military planners know it as well. Will help us take care of these intricacies in future. Thank you in advance. :namaste:

    A foreigner once wiped out many communities in China and he has been made a honorary Chinese citizen by CCP. Mao has company!

    There is no reason to doubt India's resolve to upgrade its arsenal... no what so ever...

    The planners are are taking into account of all depreciation / appreciations etc etc...

    Yes the figures are in US Dollars ad it will increase in double digit for sure...

    I do not think it is a heavy burden on economy... no defense expenditure can be thought of as burden... BTW Indias defense sector is growing very fast and will employ thousands of peoples...

    Take the rafale deal for example, you can't pay it up with onetime payment right? the total amount is 11 billion, but you will need to pay an actual amount of 16-18 billion. rupee is getting weaker day by day against US dollars, the amount your congress allocated is in rupee right? so once you hand out the hard currency, it will
    be at least 20 billion dollars of rupees right?

    So it was ok for the millions of Chinese peasants to die because today's China is industrialized? And you guys call yourselves egalitarian communists? Your thinking is that of an elitist.

    Don't worry about India's economy and arms spending. Whatever the government spends, it is accountable to the people. If they screw up the finances in their 5 year term, we can throw them out the next election. You should worry about the dictatorship prevalent in your country which is completely unaccountable to anyone.

    Don't probe too deep into their finances though....they might get annoyed and throw you into a laogai. :rolleyes:
