    Not standard conventional rockets or artillery but by srbm it can easily be hit. Hence why I don't see point moving large long range jets closer to borders.

    If they are under bunkers, it's ok. You need something very precise to hit them (5m accuracy) and one missile per bunker. But if they are parked outdoor, they can be destroy by just one hit ... and India doesn't have S-300 to protect them, no ?

    i feel India as of now has spyder air defense http://www.military-today.com/missiles/spyder.htm

    for specific air bases in forward areas. India unofficially has S300 but it seems to have been deployed in New Delhi and Mumbai at sensitive places

    S400 deal is finalized but dont know when will India get them

    To defend targets from artillery shells and cruise missiles, you are better off using TOR or Pantsir-S1 than S-300 or S-400.

    Sukhoi-30 fighter jet with two pilots goes missing near Assam’s Tezpur

    Post  Pinto on Wed May 24, 2017 1:32 pm

    An Indian Air Force Su-30 fighter plane is missing after it lost radio contact 60km north of Tezpur in Assam.

    The Russia-made fighter jet, with two pilots on board, took off from Salonibari in Assam at 10.30am on Tuesday.

    IAF, army have called off the search for the missing jet. The search was called off due to poor light. The search, a defence spokesperson said, will resume on Wednesday morning.

    The search, a defence spokesperson said, will resume on Wednesday.

    The IAF’s Sukhoi-30 fleet has been plagued by engine troubles and poor serviceability.

    The Air Force, after carrying out a search on its network, informed Sonitpur district deputy commissioner Manoj Kumar Deka about the missing jet.

    The DC said he then immediately alerted the neighbouring district administrations about the missing plane.

    The Sukhoi Su-30 is a Russian-made, twin-engine fighter meant for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface missions.

    The first of these planes were inducted by the IAF in the late 1990s. Since then, seven crashes have occurred with the last one on March 15 when a jet crashed in Rajasthan’s Barmer district.

    An inquiry into these crashes has primarily indicated technical failure as their cause.

    In March, India signed a pact with Russia for long-term supply of spares and support.

    Funny they should say that since the engines are made in India under agreements.

    Once again the blame is being pushed on Russia for India's failures. Hence why I think selling a fifth Gen jet to India isn't a good idea. They will tarnish it and blame Russia even if it was using 100% Indian components.

    Indian Air Force plans to add muscle to Sukhois

    Post  Pinto on Thu Jun 22, 2017 1:50 pm

    https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/newsindia/indian-air-force-plans-to-add-muscle-to-sukhois/ar-BBD0Ipd?li=AAggbRN


    Seeking to enhance the capabilities of its Sukhoi-30 combat aircraft, the Indian Air Force is now planning to upgrade the capabilities of its frontline planes by equipping them with longer range air-to-air missiles and advanced target detection capabilities.

    The upgrades in capabilities are being discussed with the original aircraft manufacturer Russia, which supplied the planes to India in the late 1990s.



    "We are looking for enhancing the capabilities of the aircraft by equipping it with more potent weapons including air-to-air missiles with kill ranges up to 120 kilo metres like the Meteor missiles which are being fitted on the Rafales," sources told MAIL TODAY.

    Under the plans to enhance the capabilities, the air frame of the planes would also be strengthened to allow it to carry heavier missiles with longer ranges for carrying out special operations, the sources said.

    The aircraft is already being upgraded for carrying the Brah-Mos supersonic cruise missile which would be hitting targets in ranges up to 300 km.

    ENHANCING ENEMY DETECTION CAPABILITY

    The Air Force is also planning to enhance the enemy detection capabilities with advanced radar like the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar which can help the IAF pilots to track enemy planes and target more effectively and at longer ranges, the sources said.

    The IAF has placed the orders for 272 Su-30MKIs from Russia in different batches and they have been deployed across the country at different locations in 12 squadrons.

    After the phasing out of the MiG-series planes including the MiG 21s and the MiG 27s, the Su-30MKIs would be mainstay of the Air Force with responsibility of looking after both the Eastern front with China and Western front with Pakistan.

    Under the upgraded plans, the IAF is looking to involve the first few batches of the aircraft that it received from the Russians known as Mark I. The rest of the aircraft would be upgraded as the batches keep getting enhanced capabilities.

    About three years back, the IAF had also issued a Request to Information to the European vendors for acquiring stand-off missiles with ranges beyond 300 kilometres for being fired from the Sukhois.

    For the upgrade project, Russia is also trying to involve European companies for providing weapon systems and avionics and has already started talking to some of the vendors there.

    The plan for upgrading the Sukhois has been hanging fire for close to a decade now as the discussions on the issue had started between the two countries around 2009-10 itself.

    However, the project cost has escalated hugely in these years as the Russians are now asking somewhere between US$ 7-8 billion (Rs 45,000-52,000 crore) for the upgrades.
