In case if America blocks Apache helicopter is do India need to procure improved MI 28N Night Hunter attack helicopter or EuroCopter Tiger attack helicopter.

MI 28 N Night Hunter attack helicopter have been vastly improved by Russia. MI 28 N Night Hunter attack helicopter is the cheapest.

Why do you have this silly thread, no the Apache delivery is not being blocked or cut in anyway, this is just a fake narrative. Original order of 22+6 will be delivered and there are options for 39 more which will be excercised eventually.

CHOOSE PREDATOR DRONES OR S-400 MISSILES DEFENCE: US
General Atomics MQ-1 Predator is a Medium-Altitude, Long-Endurance (MALE) UAS, the drone can fire the AGM-114K Hellfire anti-tank missile and also carry a laser designator

Why is the US administration threatening to block sales of Predator Drones to India? How is the Russian S-400 Air Defence System linked to American Predator Drone? Will India’s acquisition of the state-of-the-art Russian S-400 Missile Defence System come at the cost of getting access to American cutting-edge and lethal Predator Drones?

William Thornberry, the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said: “The acquisition of this technology (Predator Drones) will limit, the degree with which the US will feel comfortable in bringing additional technology into the country. Thornberry added that the acquisition of the S-400 Russian Missile Defence System would imperil their ability to work interoperably in the future.

India-Russia Relations
India’s decision to go ahead with Russia for S-400 Missile Defence System could come in the way of India acquiring much hyped and sought after Predator Drones, which according to the Indian media, could be used to target terrorist camps near the Indo-Pakistan border.

India manages a friendly relationship with both the United States and Russia, but it is Russia which has supplied the majority of India’s weapons over several decades. India is one of the largest importers of weapons in the world and acquires military hardware from a host of nations including Russia, US, France and Israel. Russia, by far, is the largest exporter of weapons to India and has been providing the latest, state-of-art equipment to India including fighter jets, aircraft carriers, submarines etc.

Predator Drones vs S-400 Air Defence Systems
Earlier, in an attempt to considerably improve India’s offensive capabilities, the Trump administration had agreed to supply long-endurance, high-altitude surveillance armed UAV’s – the Predator Drones to India, capable of tracking and neutralising targets across different terrains.

Manufactured by General Atomics, Predator Drones have both land and naval variants and can be loaded with air-to-land missiles, anti-ship missiles and laser-guided bombs for hunting down targets.

Thornberry stated that the US was disappointed with India’s plan to acquire S-400 Air Defence Systems from Russia. If India goes ahead to procure Russian S-400 Air Defence Systems, this could endanger India-US Defence Relations and the first casualty would be advanced Predator drones, Thornberry warned.

The trump administration is business oriented one, they want their defense toys to be sold.

They want to establish their defense manufacturing industry here. Blocking the sale is not an option for them.

Even if they deny drone tech. we have Israel who can provide the tech. add to that France is ready to work with India.

Again don't confuse chit chat on the Democratic floor to any serious changes. The Plan B in this case would be more LCH.

Guys please avoid reading too much into this fear mongering which is being seen across Indian media or Indian Online News websites (like posted above). "Conspiracy hat on: Who wants a bet there is a very deep Russian lobby helping such news articles along"

1. US PACOM just Renamed itself to Indo-Pacific Command. The Press releases specifically named defence relations with India as a key factor.

2. the New CO has ALREADY presented his case to Congress on the uniqueness of India's position and relations visavis India and Russia and that an exception to the rule (american policy) is the ONLY solution.

3. We bought 15bn of hardware over the last decade from America. And with the MRCA, fresh orders for Chinooks, P-8s, C-17s, C-130s, M-177s, Apaches, etc etc etc who else is going buy this? We are fresh new market where almost 70% of inventory needs replacing.

I pray to God that America stops Apache & M-777 sales, but sadly it will not happen.

Trump is not foolish enough to do so. American MIC will not be happy if this happens...

Apache and M777 sales are done, deliveries could only be halted if India poses a serious threat to US or it's interests. Keep in mind, there is a very active & effective Paki beggar lobby in the US as well and they have a lot of designs in play often to little result. The US mil is fundamentally aligned with India, this has been the case now since around 2001.
