Fighter tender: Russia has made an offer to India that is hard to refuse


The Russian multi-purpose Su-35 Flanker-E + 4 ++ generation multi-purpose fighter designed to gain superiority in the air became the main contender for victory in the Indian tender. Russia has made an offer to India, which is difficult to refuse, according to the profile edition of the Defense Aviation Post.


DAP notes that the Russian combat vehicle is superior to its competitors in a number of ways. The aircraft has the highest payload, and its glider allows for highly maneuverable air combat. Moreover, the Indian media claims that the Su-35 is adapted for carrying hypersonic weapons.

The Defense Aviation Post claims that the Russians linked the proposal for the release of 114 Su-35 fighters in India with the possibility of modernizing the existing fleet of more than 250 Su-30MKI Flanker-N generation 4+. They offered to provide a number of of technologies Su-35, which can be used to upgrade the Indian fleet of Su-30MKI, which will significantly improve their performance. Engines and other systems of the Su-35 will be integrated into the Indian Su-30MKI, which will create interchangeability of spare parts, seriously reducing costs.

Note that the Military Watch also wondered which Indians would prefer a fighter - the Russian Su-35 or the American F-15EX. According to experts of the publication, the American fighter has a slight advantage in speed, but the Su-35 has better stealth and a more powerful Irbis-E radar, detecting multiple targets at ranges of over 400 km.

    And should I rejoice at this deal? We ourselves do not yet have Su-35 in sufficient quantities. Putin built the economy! In order to have the best ourselves, we must first sell this best to others! But for myself, it turns out, there is no money! And should I support these hucksters?

      So who is asking you to support? The article cites the fact that India wants to purchase our new Su-35s in total up to 220 units. And also India wants to purchase more than 250 new MiG-35s. And what's wrong with our military-industrial complex, if we, having sold such a large number of aircraft to India, at the expense of profit, we can load our factories to the eyeballs and build another 220 new Su-35S and new Mig-35 for our army. So by the end of 2020, our Airborne Forces will have about 100 Su35 units in service, and now there are also 128 Su-30SM units, 220 units of the modernized Su27, more than 180 units of the modernized Mig-29 and Mig31 interceptors, there are about 70 of them, and there are about 270 units on conservation that have now begun to modernize. But we also remember that there are more than 120 units of Su34, which can also perform shock capabilities. In general, now about 818 units of interceptor aircraft and VKS are already in service with modernized and new ones. The plans by 2030 to bring up to 1500 aircraft. So the USSR itself had about 1800 units. But the USSR had more territory, and there were no UAVs that Russia was planning to put into service up to 2030-2000 units by 3000. We also need to remember that the planes currently in service with the Russian Aerospace Forces are armed with missiles one and a half to two times more effective than they were on USSR planes. So the USSR did not have the doctrine of attack and Russia does not, and the emphasis has always been on powerful air defense systems and Long-Range Aviation. And now Russia is focusing on powerful new electronic warfare and hypersonic weapons. It is cheaper and does not create a burden on the budget. The USSR gave weapons to all allies. And Russia is selling. In my opinion, and rightly so.

        I was going to answer Stalevar, but in time I read your comment .... they wrote everything right. In 2018, Russia sold 24 Su-35s to China for $ 2,4 billion, i.e., one Su-35 went for $ 100 million. In the same 2018, Russia sold 11 Su-54s to Indonesia for $ 1,1 billion, that is, one Su-35 also left for $ 100 million. The cost of one Su-35 is approximately $ 40 million, that is, one aircraft sold for export brings such a profit that allows you to build another aircraft for the Russian Air Force. A steelworker is a patriot, this is good, but he does not understand the economy and does not know how to think for the future.

      As of November 2019, 112 Su-35s were launched. Of these, 90 aircraft entered service with the Russian Aerospace Forces.

    - Actually, about

    The Su-35 has better stealth and a more powerful Irbis-E radar, detecting multiple targets at ranges of over 400 km.

    - Actually, the Indians may not be happy with our export version of the Su-35S .. where the airborne radar with passive headlight H035 Irbis-E ...
    As for the high-speed F-15EX, it can quite effectively intercept long-range cruise missiles ... - here, stealth and even super-maneuverability are not so necessary, but high speed is required ...
    - And indeed ...- Indians are capricious people ...- will again begin to squeeze out additional favorable conditions for Russia from them ... - And ours will, as always ...- give way ...

      And Russia will do the right thing if it yields a little, but on the spare parts it gets rich and tightly ties India to itself, because, in the event of a cooling of relations, the Indian fleet will turn into a chicken coop of non-flying hens ...

        - As I understand it ... minus me ... your ... - Well, well ...
        - About the chicken coop you sounded good; but about the concessions to India - not really ...
        - The fact is that Russia does not know how to “slightly yield” to India ... - a whole series of concessions will follow; and behind this a whole series of all kinds of Hindu begging and capricious demands of India to Russia ...
        - And as for the fact that Russia

        on spare parts it will get rich and tightly tie India to itself

        - This is already from the realm of fantasies ... - Rather ...- this is Russia tied to India and is only wasting precious time trying to cooperate with it in the joint creation of weapons ... - For many years of such cooperation, Russia has received nothing in technical and a progressive scientific plan ... - And it just turned into a kind of philanthropist who indulges India in attempts to advance in the creation of modern weapons ...
        - The point of this ... no ...
