What about inflation , for example dollar has gone from being 44 rupee in 2006 to 66 rupee in 2017 and there are components we order from France and Israel that are paid in dollar.Taking MKI as an example, what you get now is no different than years ago. The indigenous supply chain has long been established. There is no Super 30 upgrade included in this cost. This is flyaway cost, no support contracts included. I will digress to inflation but it is not possibly that high.
Take the example of Su 30 mki is was say 40 million in 2005 , by inflation only that will be close to 50 million by 2008
Plus the 78$ million dollar had special equipment and changes to air frame
