They are already buying S70s. Why buy a inferior product ?
First of all why are you even comparing two helicopters from different weight categories?
Second when we’re offering them a Line of Credit(LoC) for defence obviously they’d want to buy stuff that’s useful for them.
And third what if they require a helicopter of an in between size between small and medium helicopters?

Any idea how much of this contract value will go to the Russians in terms of critical components and royalty?

Dated article but some numbers being talked about here. Apologies if posted earlier -


"This collaboration has resulted in business worth Rs. 40,000 crore and our initial investment was only Rs. 1,300 crore. So, certainly, we feel that we created wealth, environment (the ecosystem) and till today we have given back to the Government of India more than Rs. 4,000 crore in terms of taxes, directly and indirectly," Mishra said.
"Today, we have more than 200 industries who are our business partners," he said adding that more than 20,000 people are employed either directly and indirectly due to the venture.

Now why do I get feeling that just because US is allowing us to go ahead n buy the S-400s, they will force push their F/A 18s for IN fighter jet tender??

We will most likely order something else of equal value from the US.

More Rafales likely for both IAF and IN as per grapevine.

Just in case this was missed earlier -

Ninda turtle had a Masters degree in Physics and now he can't find a difference b/w an IDDM & JV product.

BJP IT cell will claim how India became a defence exporter after exporting these JV products.

It's a good decision btw but there should be a limit on the tech that we've already developed and at par with the other best options. Don't get me wrong but we have a long long way to go and a good JVs with the extensive knowledge sharing agreement can speed up that process. We learned a lot of things from Brahmos and Barak JV, in the future with such JVs we can learn even more. IDDM doesn't always mean it's the best out there.

True JV means we should have some technology to contribute. For eg in Barak-8 JV, we developed the dual pulse propulsion, while Israeli's developed the seeker. This is what should be called as a true JV. But our Babus & Jernails call screwdrivergiri as JV and make us fools.
