    This happened after having pretty much tormented with Rafals and having organized, at the suggestion of the Americans, a whole campaign against Russian fighters in the press,


    Isn't this proof that there is literally disinformation campaigns against Russia fighters ? Like coordinated and organized media attacks against them ? I have long suspected that this was the case.


    yes. just watch some of the more popular indian defense yt channels. some are so obvious you dont even need to speak hindi to see it. they even attack rafale and push for shit like "f-21" and f-18.

    From an Indian perspective it makes no sense having different fighters on each aircraft carrier... and Rafales or F-18s would need catapult launch on carriers that small.

    It's a little worrying that it took them this long to figure that out.

    India wants to produce the latest Russian Il-112V aircraft
    Andrey Arkadiev
    February 3, 2021
    The decision remains with the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of India, the FSMTC said.

    The Indian corporation Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is ready to produce the promising new generation Il-112V light transport aircraft, said Vladimir Drozhzhov, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) of the Russian Federation, during the Aero India-2021 exhibition.

    “Indian partners are showing interest in the Il-112V aircraft. Indian corporation HAL is ready to organize its production at its enterprises. The decision is up to the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of India, ”he said.

    In October, the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov announced that the new Il-112V aircraft would begin to arrive at the Russian Ministry of Defense in 2023.

    The design of the Il-112V aircraft began in 2002, when the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced a competition for the creation of a light military transport aircraft. This competition was attended by "Tupolev", AK them. S.V. Ilyushin, EMZ them. V.M. Myasishchev, RSK MiG and OKB im. Sukhoi. The creation of a transport aircraft based on the An-140 was also considered.

    In March 2003, the competition committee reviewed the submitted projects, and on August 12, Vladimir Putin was informed that the Il-112V project had won the competition. Ilyushinskoye design bureau started to create the aircraft.

    At the end of 2018, the chief designer of Il PJSC, Nikolai Talikov, told the Zvezda TV channel that Ilyushin was working on weight loss. Later it became known that the weight was reduced by a ton due to the use of composite materials, improvement of aircraft systems and equipment.

    In June 2019, the production of the third and fourth Il-112V began at the Voronezh aircraft plant.

    Defense View: India signed an agreement with Russia on the supply of Su-57

    The media report on the agreements concluded between Russia and India on Su-57 fighters.

    The information and news publication "Defense View" reports that, within the framework of the international air show "Aero India 2021", Russia and India reached an agreement on the supply of Russian Su-57 fighters to the Indian Air Force, and, in addition to purchasing an unnamed number of Russian fighters, the fifth generation, it is also assumed that India will return to the FGFA program (Indian fifth generation fighter based on the Su-57 - ed.).

    “The Defense Research and Development Organization of India (DRDO) was primarily interested in fifth generation fighter technology for their own production. At the time, it was believed in New Delhi that they either already existed or were in the final stages of development. That is, the problem was not the low quality of the fifth-generation Russian Su 57 fighters, but intellectual property rights. It is possible that making a combat aircraft of this level for India on its own was a somewhat more difficult task than was initially assumed. The other day, Air Marshal of the Indian Air Force Birender Singh Dhanova spoke about the conditions for acquiring the Su-57 from Russia: “When it is already put into operation for you, only then will we be able to make a decision for ourselves. We are ready to consider it for purchase after we see it in the case, and it will be submitted to us for testing for evaluation. Thus, India did not put an end to the project at all, but only temporarily froze the negotiations, allowing Moscow to eliminate all "childhood diseases" at its own expense. Cynical, but practical. And now New Delhi has asked to bring him an export version of the Russian fifth-generation fighter for "inspection" ", - reports the publication "Defense View".

    Given the fact that a flight copy of the Su-57E fighter has not yet been created, there is still no real contract between Russia and India, however, given New Delhi's new interest in Russian fifth-generation fighters, it is obvious that a contract between the two countries may occur. soon.

    More than once they have done... such scoops coming out of the blue are extremely rare and, from that source, they land directly in my trash bin.

    Pentagon Chief Says India Should Forgo Buying Russia's S-400s to Avoid US Sanctions

    US Secretary of Defence Lloyd J. Austin III has urged Indian leaders to avoid buying Russian defence equipment, including S-400s, if the country wants to avoid the risk of sanctions under Section 231 of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

    You assume that the US is able to damage India/Russia relations.

    They probably think they are in control, but perhaps the act of breaking India/Russia relations they actually end up breaking US/India relations instead... they way they broke US/Turkey relations with trying to overthrow Erdogan and also with the F-35/S-400 fiasco.

    With friends like these, who needs enemies?

    Indeed. Russia does not need to do anything except let India buy American military equipment... over priced and over rated and a string that is used to control India like a lead controls a dog... they will soon realised why they chose Russian equipment and good relations in the first place.

    Austin also hinted that Washington is trying to push India in line with US foreign policy, while he also questioned the persecution of Muslims in India.

    Really really stupid for the US to scold India on muslims at the same meeting that they are threatening caatsa. Now India knows that prospective weapons deals with the US will always have that issue hanging over them. Russian weapons have zero strings attached.

    Lavrov: India Confirms Commitment to Buying S-400 Systems From Russia
    01/06/2021

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - India is firm in its commitment to buy S-400 air defence systems from Russia, and the contracts are being implemented, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday.

    "I would like to point out the implementation of the contracts for the supply of S-400 systems to India. Here we see no changes, and the Indian leadership has confirmed its commitment to these agreements," the minister said at the press conference after BRICS Ministerial Meeting.

    In October 2018, Moscow and New Delhi signed an agreement to supply five regiments of Russia's S-400 air defence systems to India. The delivery of the final regiment is scheduled to be concluded in the first half of 2025.

    Lavrov added that cooperation with India on the economy, politics, defence industry, and healthcare was moving forward.

    "Literally today, we are sending another batch of Sputnik V vaccine to our Indian friends, in addition to the steps that have already been taken," Lavrov said.

    In addition to receiving the vaccine from Russia, India's Gland Pharma said back in March that it has made a deal with the Russian Direct Investment Fund to produce Sputnik V.
