First of all mig29k are pretty advanced . They are more advanced then airforce varients . And are not outdated they have ols , mk series engine etc.wht? afaik there r no plans for import so indian navy will have to live with fairly outdated mig 29k,whereas china will possibly come up with fixed wing awacs and j31 naval,if this is the case we should go for import or at least lease of some crafts because tedbf is not here till 2028
Secondly chinese currently have j15 which is a failure. J20 is in works for more than 15 years already. So chinese will require atleast 15-20 years to field a decent naval stealth jet which doesn't crash as much as j15.
