    Pakistan and Russia sign a landmark defence agreement

    Post  Gunner on Thu Aug 20, 2015 2:29 am

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Russia on Wednesday signed a landmark defence deal that includes the sale of four Mi-35 ‘Hind E’ attack helicopters to Pakistan.

    “The agreement was signed by top defence officials from Pakistan and Russia in Rawalpindi on Wednesday,” said a military source.

    Both countries were negotiating the deal for the past year, signalling a major thaw in relations between the two cold-war rivals.

    Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif had also visited Russia in June, after which a draft contract for the delivery of four Mi-35M 'Hind E' combat helicopters was sent to Pakistan from Russia.

    General Raheel Sharif had spent about 15 hours at an arms expo near Moscow that featured Russia’s cutting edge weapons and military equipment. He inspected not only the weapon systems on display but also saw their live demonstrations.

    Late last year, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu arrived on a visit to Pakistan which was aimed at discussing bilateral defence cooperation with the Pakistani leadership.

    CEO of Russia's Rostec hi-tech corporation, Sergey Chemezov, had also last year said Russia had lifted its embargo on delivery of military hardware and armaments to Pakistan and negotiations were being held on delivering helicopters.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry also said both sides have been negotiating the delivery of helicopters and that Pakistan currently has a number of Mi-17 helicopters delivered by the United States to assist in the fight against militancy.

    The Mi-35 helicopter is an exceedingly modernised version of the Mi-24 (Hind) combat helicopter with new onboard equipment and avionics. It also has a more powerful engine and a different tail rotor.

    Pakistan and Russia had signed a bilateral defence cooperation agreement aimed at strengthening military-to-military relations in November last year. The deal had to be followed by another ‘technical cooperation agreement’ to pave the way for sale of defence equipment to Pakistan.

    Besides helicopters, Pakistan also appears interested in other Russian hardware.

    Russia and Pakistan have lately been working on enhancing defence cooperation and are believed to have already covered a lot of ground. Exchange of visits by military commanders in recent years is an indication of progress achieved in this regard.

    India’s decision to enter into tighter embrace with the US had prompted Russia to rethink its defence relationship with Pakistan.

    That's great, because the Yak is a training aircraft and not one that could fly offensive missions against India.

    Pak-Russia talks on delivery of Su-35, Mi-35s underway: Russian Deputy FM

    Post  Pinto on Thu Sep 10, 2015 5:23 pm

    NIZHYNY TAGIL: Pakistan and Russia are in talks about the delivery of Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets and previously agreed upon delivery of Mi-35M helicopters, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister (FM) Sergei Ryabkov said, Sputnik reported.

    Earlier this year, a draft contract for the delivery of four Mi-35M 'Hind E' combat helicopters was sent to Pakistan from Russia, a source in the Russian military and technical cooperation was quoted by the Russian news agency TASS.

    Increasing military cooperation between Islamabad and Moscow would not negatively impact Russia's ties with India, Ryabkov said, adding that Pak-Russia ties were improving in other sectors as well ─ including energy.

    The Russian Deputy FM Ryabkov referred to Pakistan as Russia's closest partner and said, "I do not think that the contacts under discussion will cause jealousy on the part of any of the two sides."

    Pakistan and Russia had signed a bilateral defence cooperation agreement aimed at strengthening military-to-military relations in November last year. The deal had to be followed by another ‘technical cooperation agreement’ to pave the way for sale of defence equipment to Pakistan.

    So apparently Pakistan tried to purchase Su-27's in the past but failed. This will be no different. Pakistan wont be able to afford Su-35's. Way too expensive and too much of a political shitstorm.

    As well, the author stated exactly what I said Ryubkov stated and what he meant.

    Moscow, Islamabad Discuss Establishment of Helicopter Service Center

    Head of Rostec's International Cooperation Department Viktor Kladov said that Moscow and Islamabad are holding negotiations on creating a Russian technical service center in Pakistan, which would maintain and repair helicopters.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) — Russia and Pakistan are negotiating over the creation of a service center for helicopters in Pakistan, head of Rostec's International Cooperation Department Viktor Kladov said Sunday.

    "There is a huge number of Russian helicopters in Pakistan. We are currently holding negotiations. It is about creating a technical service center, which would maintain and repair helicopters," Kladov said.

    In March, Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain announced Islamabad's intention to expand military-technical cooperation with Russia and purchase Russian helicopter gunships.

    In August, a contract for four Mi-35M transport and attack helicopters was signed by Russia's state arms exporter Rosoboronexport and Pakistan's Ministry of Defense, according to a spokesperson for the Russian Embassy in Islamabad.

    Pakistan Seeks Joint Plane Engine Development With Russia

    A Russian engine is being installed in Pakistan’s JF-17 Thunder fighter jet which inspires hope for cooperation between the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex and the Russian engine maker, a PAC representative said on Monday.

    “As we know, a Russian engine is being installed on the JF-17 Thunder and we are looking forward to further cooperation with the engine manufacturer in Russia,” the Pakistani official told RIA Novosti news agency on the sidelines of the 2015 Dubai Air Show on Monday.
    The PAC representative expressed interest in having Pakistani engine specialists undergo training in Russia and their Russian colleagues helping modernize the company’s engine-repair facilities in Pakistan.

    The JF-17 all-weather multirole fighter, jointly developed by Pakistan and China’s Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation, is currently being modified with a Russian-made RD-93 engine.

    Founded in 1971 by the Pakistan Air Force, the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex is a major aerospace, defense, aviation contractor and military corporation producing aerial systems for both military and civilian usage.

    Pakistan reveals interest in Russian dual-control Mi-28NEs

    Pakistan has shown interest in acquiring the latest dual-control variant of the Mil Mi-28NE Night Hunter ('Havoc-B') attack helicopter, a Pakistani diplomatic source told IHS Jane's on 24 March.

    He pointed out that the dual-control Mi-28NE meets the Pakistani armed forces' requirements for a platform for counter-terrorism operations, as the helicopter's ballistic and radio-electronic protection and combat effectiveness have been improved over the basic Mi-28NE and both the pilot and gunner can control the aircraft.

    Such features can significantly increase the level of a helicopter's survivability on the modern battlefield, where adversaries frequently have anti-aircraft guns and man-portable air-defence systems (MANPADS). The dual-control Mi-28NE's advanced ballistic protection kit allows the helicopter to withstand several hits from 23 mm (airframe) and 30 mm (composite rotor blades) shells.

    Russia has previously offered Pakistan four Mi-28NEs without dual controls to support Islamabad's counter-terrorism operations: an offer that fostered resentment from India. The source noted that, although that offer was not furthered, when Rostvertol, Russian Helicopters' parent company, launched serial production of the dual-control Mi-28NE, "Pakistan showed its intention to take the issue from the table".

    In 2015 Islamabad signed a contract with Russian defence export agency Rosoboronexport for four Mi-35M ('Hind-J') attack helicopters, the deliveries of which are scheduled for 2016.

    Su-37 was the designation given by Sukhoi to an "old" Su-35 (Su-27M) prototype with bidimensional TVC. Su-30MKI and SM incorporates these technologies, while Su-35S is much more advanced. Talking about Su-37 makes no sense whatsoever.

    That's how you know the article is fake, however rumor of a Su-35 sale to Pakistan could be a strategy garner sales to India. Either buy form us, or we sell to Pakistan, considering how India recently signed a geo-strategic military cooperation deal with the United States. Ultimately that deal will end up undermining Russia-India military cooperation......but that's the world of geopolitics.

    Bro the present Indian govt might have signed this LEMOA the watred down version of LSA but no Indian govt can take any stance against Russia even in dreams because of public perception of Russia as old friend. This all is being done as per govt to contain china which along with pakistan has started hurting India on international forums

    2016-18 are going to be years when we will see lots of trade and defence related new agreements with Russia and this is a fact

    Last Minute Russian Visit by Indian Minister Hopes to Deny Pakistan New Weapons

    Post  Pinto on Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:18 am

    Rajnath Singh will visit Russia during the first ever Pakistan-Russia joint military exercise later this year. While a visit to US was planned months ago, his Russian visit was firmed up just last month. Experts believe that India is sending Rajnath Singh to convince Russia not to sell combat aircraft to Pakistan.

    The two nation tour of Russia and the US by Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh is an effort press Pakistan for its activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Sources from the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs said that during his trips, Singh would highlight Pakistan's involvement in terror activities and the recent spurt of violence in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Sources from the Ministry of Home Affairs said that while Singh's visit to the US was planned months ago, his five-day visit to Russia starting from September 18 was finalized in last week of August. Singh will reportedly hold talks with Russian Minister for Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev on September 20, but both nations are still developing the agenda for the talks. Singh will then travel to the US on September 26 for a seven-day visit to the Indo-American Homeland Security Dialogue with his American counterpart, Jeh Charles Johnson. However, for India, Russian cooperation in anti-terror activities will hold much more importance.

    Apart from discussing anti-terror cooperation in Russia, Singh intends to raise India's growing concern over reports of military cooperation between Pakistan and Russia. Manoj Joshi, Distinguished Fellow at the Observer Research Foundation said, "In the current strategic realignment, it is unlikely for India to bring Russia and the US on same platform against Pakistan, especially on the issue of anti-terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Russia is holding its first ever joint military exercise with Pakistan and Islamabad is serious to win over Russian hearts to procure advanced warplanes from Moscow. It may be possible that India is sending Rajnath Singh to pacify Russia not to sell combat aircraft to Pakistan."

    It is very crucial for India to placate Russia to not to supply combat aircraft or any other military equipment to Pakistan because India holds around 70% Soviet or Russian made military equipment. Pakistan currently is armed with US made aircraft such as the F-16 and other military equipment.

    "India's defense cooperation with Russia is much more than any other nation but, of late, India is experiencing flexibility in its relations with Russia. Now, Russia also wants the same flexibility in bilateral relations but this could pose difficulties for India."

    Pakistan and Russia are set to hold their first ever joint military exercise later this year which Indian authorities view as steadily growing military cooperation between Russia and Pakistan. This could be also evident from the fact that the chiefs of Pakistan's Army, Navy and Air Force traveled to Russia just last year alone. Last year, Pakistan and Russia signed a deal for the purchase of four Mi-35 attack helicopters. Pakistan is also exploring options to buy world's most advanced Su-35 combat aircraft from Russia.

    Russian troops arrive in Pakistan for first-ever joint military exercise

    Post  Pinto on Fri Sep 23, 2016 2:06 pm

    A contingent of Russian troops arrived in Pakistan on Friday for the first military exercise between the two Cold War rivals, with part of the drill to be conducted in territory claimed by India.

    Lt Gen Asim Bajwa, head of the Pakistani military’s media arm, tweeted photos of the Russian troops after they flew into an airbase in Rawalpindi, squelching speculation that Moscow would call off the drill in the wake of the terror attack on an Indian Army camp in Uri .
    About 200 soldiers from each side will take part in the two-week wargame “Druzhba 2016” (Friendship 2016) that will begin on September 24. New Delhi has already conveyed to Moscow its concerns that part of the exercise will be held at a military facility in Gilgit-Baltistan, which was part of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state and is claimed by India.

    Following the Uri attack that killed 18 soldiers, sections of the Indian media had reported that India had prevailed on Russia to call off the exercise.

    On Thursday, external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup told a news briefing that India had been in “continuous communication” with Russia on the issue of the exercise. Referring to the plans to conduct manoeuvres in Gilgit-Baltistan, he said this was “part of Indian territory” and New Delhi’s “well known sensitivities” had been conveyed to Russia.


    he exercise will be conducted at the Pakistan Army’s High Altitude School at Rattu in Gilgit-Baltistan and at a special forces training centre at Cherat in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. The drill is expected to focus on high-altitude warfare.

    he wargame reflects the growing military-to-military ties between Pakistan and Russia, whose relations were strained for decades following the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan. The two sides have taken several steps to improve defence relations as India’s military procurements moved away from Russia to the US and Israel.

    Russia lifted a long-standing embargo on arms sales to Pakistan in 2014. Last year, the two sides finalised a deal for four Mi-35 attack helicopters – a move that angered India. Since then, reports have suggested that Pakistan is interested in acquiring more military gear from Russia, including Su-35 combat jets.

    The Pakistani media reported that the joint exercise is seen as another step in growing military-to-military cooperation and indicates a steady growth in ties between the two countries that were marred by Cold War rivalry.

    Pakistan’s envoy to Russia, Qazi Khalilullah, said the exercise reflected the increased cooperation between the two countries. “This obviously indicates a desire on both sides to broaden defence and military-technical cooperation,” he also told a Russian news agency.
    The chiefs of Pakistan’s army, navy and air force have also visited Russia over the past 15 months.

    Real Deal: Pakistan Confirms Interest in Russian Su-35 Fighters

    Post  Pinto on Sat Sep 24, 2016 2:17 pm

    https://sputniknews.com/military/20150920/1027266560/pakistan-russia-su-35.html

    Pakistan is poised to upgrade its air force by purchasing what are arguably the best combat aircraft already in use - Russian Su-35 fighters, and here is why.

    A Pakistani government official spoke to IHS Jane's, confirming that the sides had already discussed a possible purchase of the advanced aircraft, as the Pakistani Air Force requires a two-engine fighter "that can fly for a longer range than the JF-17 and penetrate more deeply into the enemy's territory".

    Currently the country's air force operates a fleet of US F-16s, French Mirage-5s, Chinese F-7s and Sino-Pakistani JF-17s.

    Earlier, Moscow and Islamabad clinched a deal on the delivery of Mi-35M transport and attack helicopters to Pakistan, and the contract could be expanded.

    While the media are discussing the PAK FA, F-35 and J-20, the fifth-generation aircraft being tested in Russia, the US and China respectively, the fully operational Su-35 seems even more reliable for the moment. It has been touted as "4++ generation using fifth-generation technology", rendering it superior to other fourth-generation fighters under development.

    In fact, only the absence of stealth technology and an active electronically scanned array formally separates this plane, which is unbelievably maneuverable at low speeds, from the family of fifth-generation jets.
