    guys we have su30 mki and china has su30mkk i wonder when i see why we are increasing order for su30 mki while we can get better plane su35

    as we all know mmrca,pak-fa,lca ,mca will take time and we have lots of old planes in our air force and we have less number against china

    we can get su35 from china which is much better plane the su30 mki and it will provide a upper hand against china

    I really don't know how you came with this conclusion,but the Su-30Mki is being upgraded the Irbis radar has been reported offered to India. what i would like to see is the Su-34 in IN navy for long range patrol this can be done with the Su-30mki but pilots operate under more strain conditions compared to the Su-34.

    well if you compare both planes then you can find su35 is more advance then su30mki and i am talking about why not we choose su35 for our force as we have to work two front defensive policy so we need the numbers and advance planes

    we have old planes like

    mig21
    mig29
    mirrage
    mig27


    how long we can use them and risk for our pilots su 35 can give a upper hand to our air force

    You can't have an airforce comprised mainly with High end planes like SU-35 too costly to maintain such a fleet,the Mig-29 and Mirage-2000 are being upgraded and have significant residual life. Mig-21 is to be replace by Tejas and Mig-27 by MRCA AFAIK then the MCA will come in gradually.
    The airforce always adopt a high-low mix for eg;
    1st group=Su-30Mki
    2nd=Mig-29,Mirage-2000,Jaguar
    Low end=Mig 21

    what need to be done IMHO is that Tejas induction and production rate must be accelerated/increased, MRCA will come in.

    well i hope you rember our force is working on two front defensive policy and i hope you know how strength of china as you are talking about pakfa,mca they all are future project and they will not come before 2018 at least

    but yes lca2 can play its role in Indian air force well i am against for more number of order of su3omki while we can get su35 which is far advance plane then su30mki

    SU35 was fast offered to india for quick induction but they rejected it it was last nov just because we are looking at an upgraded su30mki as the backbone of the force moreover none of the exisiting russian inventory interests IAF and no talks are in progress for any of the other platforms some thing might pop up after we see the mrca results and then onwards

    well you are right and you will accept su35 is much better plane then su30mki why we give more order of su30

    you know how much time we are taking in mmrca its not good for the health of our air force

    First the strategy you develop in influenced by your economy (what you have).
    What can be done is to train IAF technician to maximize the sorties per each plane something that Israelis did with Operation Focus.

    you are right we have to work there but you will be agree with me now we are growing power and its best time when we can provide the best to our force

    we have to face china and Pakistan in future and we should be ready for worst condition and in worst condition we need number and quality and we are lacking in quality while china is doing great we are wasting our time as you can see Pakistan is also gettinf f16 and jf from china

    If you're imagining a war scenario of rapid thrust in India territory where the invaders will try to impose their political demands on India then why bother acquiring Su-35.Let's acquire more artillery to begin.put in place mountain strike corps after that kissi mai ke lal ke pichware mein dum nahin hoga to attack us.:happy_2:

    So, if Su-35 is marginally better than Su-30 then we should buy this...?
    Have you even considered what logistical nightmare it will create...? Plus why would IAF want two heavy class fighter aircrafts in its arsenal who are almost comparable...?
    Su-30MKI production line will run till 2017 i guess..And most probably by 2018 we will start inducting PAK-FA in IAF...Where is the space for a completely new plane..
    Our Fighter aircrafts will include

    FGFA/PAK-FA
    Su-30
    MRCA
    LCA
    Mig 29
    Mirage

    Now you want to add one more type in the list...??

    SU-30MKI MK3 is good enough and can be comparable with Latest Su-35BMs, The only thing we lack is engines which we will get in FGFA...
    No need For SU-35s..

    The Su-30mki need to get the Novator Long range missile plus to overcome the fall in squadron strength force multipliers such as AWACS and early warning radars are good measure.

    The airframe of su30 mki and su35 are different. Su-35 will change the way IAF operates the MKI.
