    According to Indian Air Force sources, the IAF is looking at replacing its Su-30MKI's Russian-made R-73 and R-77 air-to-air missiles. The R-77 "do not match its advertised range and cannot engage targets which are more than 80 kilometres away."

    This was an issue during the February 27 engagement between Indian fighters and Pakistani F-16s, which launched AMRAAMS missiles beyond the R-77's max range (both missed), so the IAF's Su-30MKI could not engage the Pakistani fighters. 2/

    Both missed but it is the Russian missile that is faulty?

    They are claiming it can't engage beyond 80km. Which the pakies are laughing at saying Russia should sell them the R-77 and they can probably use it at Max range. And I don't doubt that the early R-77 that India has does have it's issues. Hell, Russia never introduced it into it's own airforce instead waited for R-77-1 and now K-77M for Su-57. For most of it's modern Life, they relied upon heavily modernized R-27 missiles instead.

    Well it is another proof that indians are sneaky bastards. R-77 has a range of 80km and it is clearly stated by the manufacturer. RVV-SD is the export version with 110km and available for export since many years.

    If they wanted to compete with AMRAAM, they should have bought the SD variant.

    The reality is that they stroke themselve with the glory indian air force from the 70s and think that they must be the best in any situation because they won air battles in the 70s. The thing is that it's no more the same fighters nor the same pilots, so instead of blaming everyone they should start blaming themselves and admit they just suck.

    If they really wanted to fight they could have locked on the f-16 simulating a launch of r-27ER which would have obliged the f-16 to go defencisve (= turn, lose speed and altitude, amraam range decrease), get closer and use r-77. Moreover they were in a formation of 2 su30 some mirage 2000 and mig-21 bison, in this case leader should have coordinated an attack (and jaming) to destroy the intruders but they are not trained at all to face such situation, clearly.

    IMO indians wants to destroy russian credibility because they plan to be a new arm exporter and will target russian clients. Just like China is doing. Russia needs to destroy some chinese made and indian made weapons to stop that. Abrams destruction by kornet is a good exemple how they stoped the stories about how russian tanks are blowing up so easily and not western ones. Now destroy a stupid f-16, damage a submarine coming too close to a russian ship and use s-300 in Syria.


    It is stated they detected the launch of amraam which is a active radar missile launched with the track while scan mode. So there couldn't be an alarm in the RWR of the su-30 before the two amraam activated their onboard radars 20km away. IMO the su-30 radar can detect the amraam from far away and able the pilot to take evasive manoeuvres.

    A Israeli F-16 (much better than most F-16's) was shot down not too long ago by a S-200 AD system. Rumor was two of them shot down.

    It's quite simple - in India, there are those who are being paid to promote Israeli or US systems

    Indians aren't doing that cause they plan on "supplanting the Russians".. they simply can't. If there is an ulterior motive it's to make way for American arms. Pompeo will be selling some soon as he arrives in India. The slow displacement of Russian arms in the Indian market continues slowly but surely with no end in sight. And as always the soil must be fertile, before the crops are planted.

    https://theprint.in/defence/wiser-after-balakot-india-orders-missiles-worth-700-million-from-russia/249553/

    Well now they order 300 r-73 and 400 r-77 and some kh31 for 700 million $. To be verified as the article is from today.

    Russia offered rvv-sd but it seems MKI aren't capable of carrying it. Maybe would need an upgrade. If they are smart they would ask for r-77M.

    Are your sure it's the R-77? It was never designed to be launched with Israeli and French software. I mean Israeli software in their SAMs struggled with basic IFF, and managed to shoot down a friendly Mi-8.

    None of the newer systems are designed to work with Israeli or what not systems. I believe the newest of the new only recently received the ability to work on other nations software since it uses a modern open architecture.

    As mentioned above too, the newer variant never worked on the Su-30MKI and thus R-77 basic was sold to India.

    And all sources for the first variant of it state it's Max range is about 80km anyway from open sources so Indian officials are just making shit up as usual.

    Especially since as per article mentioned above me, states that they ordered more missiles from Russia.

    According to Russian Tactical Missiles Corporation, the developer and producer of most of the Russian air-to-air missiles, the R-73’s range is 30 km. The range of its latest version, the RVV-MD, is 40 km.

    It’s the same case with the R-77, which can hit targets at a distance of up to 80 km, while its latest version, the RVV-SD, can go up to 110 km.

    And anyway, India's Hodge podge setup of using gear from every nation under the sun, and putting it into one airframe seems to not really work so well.

    I suspect very shortly the Russians will reveal a new range of AAMs especially designed for long range use against stealthy targets specifically the F-35 and F-22, for the Su-57 to use, though of course such weapons will also be standard on the MiG-35 and Su-35.

    I suspect they will be dual homing with IIR and ARH seekers to enable mixed use of sensor technology for engaging a wider variety of targets including a passive homing mode for jammers.

    The combination of IIR sensors means the target can be examined so a towed jammer behind a fighter aircraft could be identified as such and the missile can attack the aircraft towing the jammer instead of hitting the towed decoy... it would also mean most radar stealth aircraft will be vulnerable to attack as most appear quite readily on IIR seekers.

    Export models of Russian weapons often have range limits imposed on them via software... most countries would do that of course, and they will tell the client what the limits are even if they might not tell them what they could be expanded to of course.

    For a very long time the Russians have very few upgraded aircraft in service that could use R-77s and sold rather more R-77s to China and India than they bought themselves as the only aircraft cleared to carry the R-77 during the 1990s and early 2000s was the MiG-29S, and ironically a few Su-25TMs.

    New Delhi has not sent Moscow any inquiries considering equipment of India’s Russian-made Su-30MKI fighter jets with missiles made in other countries, the deputy director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC), Vladimir Drozhzhov, told reporters. In February, media reported about India plans to equip its Su-30MKI fighters with UK-made ASRAAM missile systems and Israeli-made Spice-2000 bombs. “If the Indian partners want to install [on Su-30MKI fighters] the missiles that were never used with this aircraft before, of course, we would like to discuss this issue. The license agreement does not envisage an opportunity to equip third countries’ products on this aircraft

    Maybe this time they will listen to Ruskies and stop trying to do equivalent of plugging Xbox gamepad into Nintendo Switch?

    And don't try to use 60 mile range missile at target 80 mile away...

    Will they use the irbis E hybrid PESA radar of.the su35 or will they insist for an AESA radar?

    I heard that in the past they discussed to upgrade their su-30 with the Zukh-AM/AME radar (that I believe is the same offered as an option for the Mig-35), but such radar, even being an AESA, is still smaller and less powerful (having so inferior detection capabilities) than the Irbis-E.

    And will they switch to using only Russian sensors navigation systems and avionics, or will they keep mixing there also french and israeli components?

    Since Russia is planning a similar upgrade for their Su-30SM, and since Russia is now producing sensors and avionics not inferior to the western ones, it could be worth to try to uniform the two sets of upgrade as much as possible (of course keeping into account the difference between russian own components and their export version).
