    ^^ Yeah buddy. Our current air chief is a very aggressive man when it comes to arm-twisting politicians and that's a good thing because military's treated like beggars by politicians. This one man who's also the Chief of Join Staff has changed that. We're seriously low on modern fighters and therefore we need to get in as many as possible.

    250-300 of these means that the same amount of MiGs, Mirages and Jaguars would be bidding adieu to the IAF soon in the coming decade. So we need replacements; with something that can keep PLA and Pakistan at bay.

    Bro India is gonna develop the fighters according to its need for this we don't require Russia's license like Sukhoi's planes. India is a partner both technically & financially for this precious project . Russia can only object if we offer them for sale to other countries so wake up bro

    This PAK-FA deal almost makes the MRCA deal look irrelevant?? Too bad we did not develop LCA faster or add another Sukhoi production facility and dump this whole MRCA deal.
