    I doubt the Indian leadership will ever show courage to stand up to Pakistan by actively supporting Afghanistan in Military matter which can be termed by Pakistan as unfriendly.

    After all Pakistan responded in kind by bombing Indian Embassy as a warning to stop military air to Afghanistan and we know later that it was done by ISI.

    What's the point of doing this? By creating conflict you maintain the passions preserving the break up.
    India made a huge step by resolve Pakistan from Bangladesh. Now should give everything to prosper and be a row model in the region and slowly but surely patronize Bangladesh.
    Then Pakistan will follow. Pakistan will never develop alone. Basically India already has hundreds of millions of Muslim Hindus. Only the stupidity of the Pakistani's broke the unity and this shall be restored.  India should not keep approaching Pakistan as an enemy, India is a superpower on the making, she has only to lose by messing  with a backward country like Pakistan.
    Indians should understand that they don't play in the same league with. You should not conquer them but civilize them. This is the right attitude.

    MiG-29 service centre to open in India in 2015


    A service centre for MiG-29 aircraft will be operational in India from next year, Sergei Korotkov, chief executive officer of Russian Aircraft Corporation (RSK) MiG told reporters.

    “This year we have already provided equipment for this onsite service centre, which was built as part of the agreement, and, starting next year, this service centre should operate in accordance with the contractual obligations that were taken by both sides,” Korotkov said.

    Itar-Tass had reported during the MAKS-2013 air show that MiG signed two additional agreements worth $55 million with India’s Basant Aerospace Private Limited as part of a general offset contract with Air India.

    The first contract (worth $43 million) provides for the establishment of a service centre in India for the restoration and repair of the Zhuk-ME airborne radar produced by Fazotron-NIIP. The second contract (of $12 million) involves the creation of a service centre for the repair of equipment for the upgraded aircraft MiG-29 in India.

    The centres will conduct refurbishment of airborne radar systems and aircrafts such as the MiG-29UPG and MiG-29K/KUB and will provide advisory services for the Air India technical staff. A MiG representative said the next step calls for the creation of a consignment warehouse for aircraft spare parts in India.

    Russia Ready to Continue Helicopter Supplies to India

    MOSCOW, May 13 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Helicopters company is ready to supply additional helicopters to India, Russia’s largest partner on military and technical cooperation, CEO Alexander Mikheyev told reporters Wednesday.

    “The Russian Helicopters joint stock company will be ready to continue the program on the supply of Russian helicopters to India under contracts with the state-controlled arms trader Rosoboronexport,” Mikheyev said.

    Responding to a question on Kamov Ka-52 helicopters being deployed on Mistral-class helicopter carriers currently being built for Russia by France, Mikheyev said that “the company is ready for this program.”

    About 250 Russian-made helicopters are now operating in India, according to the company. Russia has fulfilled its obligations under the contract for the supply of 80 military Mi-17V-5 transport helicopters, concluded between Rosoboronexport and India in 2008. Additional agreements for the supply of 71 more of the helicopters were made in 2012-2013.

    If that's true, and considering the Rafale deal souring, and considering the Mistral deal souring...could this be the death nail for the French arms industry?

    One or two significant French defense firms may survive, but many won't.

    It's not that they lack knowledge, but the French leadership (if you can call it that) lacks courage. They lack the capability to tell America to fight their own battles, if the Mistral deal fizzles this may signal to the world, specifically India a long time ally of Russia, that the French military industry is an unreliable supplier (the U.S. has put sanctions on India and threaten India militarily in the past) and a country like India which is already upset that the Rafale deal is souring, may not buy from France and may cancel the deal all together...which translates to a loss of tens of billions of Dollars USD, and might translate to hundreds of billions in the next 2-to-3 decades.

    Yes, this indeed is very good news Viktor .

    The Indian Navy would want the Amur to fire the BRAHMOS and if Rubin can make that adjustment then this would be a great deal.

    I suspect though that the Amur will be purchased/leased to replace the Kilo and not as a replacement for the Scorpene .

    I would prefer a BUY over a LEASE .

    Actually the Rafale deal is going through . The Defense Minister has already announced it .

    However, the SAM deal with France will probably not see the light of the day as the Indian Air Force is happy with Akash .

    India plans to purchase three A-50 AWACS aircraft
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday August 21, 2014 12:29 MSK

    India plans to purchase three Russian A-50 AWACS aircraft, ITAR-TASS reports with reference to a source close to the Military-Industrial Commission of Russian Federation. In 2003 India placed an order for three A-50 jets; the contract was implemented in 2010.

    "We are considering the possibility of delivering three more A-50 aircraft to India; the negotiations are in progress", - the source said. He didn’t unveil possible date of signing the contract.

    According to the source, the jets will feature the same configuration as the ones delivered under the contract signed in 2003. The source added that upon implementation of that contract India signed a contract for maintenance of its A-50 aircraft. The contract is being implemented successfully with the participation of Russian specialists.

    A-50 was derived from Il-76MD aircraft and put into service in 1989. It is designed for detecting and tracking air targets and surface ships, alerting the command posts of automated systems and controlling other aircraft during targeting.

    Interesting they have chosen the SOSNA-R to replace the Strela-10M.

    The latter is a low cost low emission passive IR guided weapon of modest performance... very much a Soviet Chapparal... though not based on any AAM.

    the new missile is much faster, much simpler, with all the target tracking components in the launch vehicle.

    The effective range is doubled (10km vs about 5km) and precision and effectiveness sharply increased against a range of targets.

    the cost of new vehicles will not make it cheap, but new missiles will be cheap and simple.... if they can get local production of the missiles they could make enormous numbers... the low emissions design and ability to fire while moving make this a very potent system.

    India abandon the joint AA defense progam with Ukraina, and choose Russia's Sosna instead.

    Basically Vladimir Slobodchikova, CEO of Tochmas claimed that the Sosna system will be sold to India in 2015. The test for this system is planned to be completed in October 2014.

    The reason why India abandoned the joint project with Ukraina, clearly, is because of the current war in Donbass.
