India now moving to west no Mi 17 no upgrades for Su 30 and AK gun procurement also been put on hold shows USA pressure is working on India I don't know how western tanker refuel Russian su 30 which is Iaf fleet backbone
The IMRH will replace the MI 17 in future


SU30 upgrades will be done in-house. All MKIs are compatible with NATO standard probe-and-drogue. The IL-78 MKI tankers were upgraded in Israel to utilize this standard.
