Have no idea, however I see the salty Escar-Gauls have contractional bindings/stipulations for breaking the contract. If I remember correctly the French-ticklers broke the Mistral contract, maybe Russia could be brought in to threaten to resume suing French-ticklers for not delivering the Mistrals. Even if they've been (woefully) compensated and arbitration courts throw out the Russian lawsuit, India can open a corruption lawsuit within India suing France, in which they could swiftly slap a 25 or 50 year ban on France from entering the Indian market if they don't cooperate.
You have noo idea how well Russia did on getting out of the Mistral deal. The compensation was great they got TON of IP and the US paid for the whole thing...AND they US paid for the ships to be given to the Egyptians. All in the name of being tough on Russia. Now they are building Russian Mistrals...
The idea the Mistrals were bad, but their IP is good is terrible contradictory logic. It can't be both! I remember clowns saying that Russia's will be getting the IP for a lifting platform mechanism from Mistral....like what? The country (Russia) that made/produced Buran, Mir, and The International Space Station desperately needs Mistral's naval technology IP (for a boat that cant tolerate Arctic conditions and has a poor armament) lmao?!?! Had the Russian's went through with the lawsuit they could of gotten something like $10 billion USD in compensation, now covert that to Rubles and Russia could of regiment/brigades' worth of military vehicles of domestic origin.
