    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

    Russia - Pakistan military deals - Page 6 Empty Last Minute Russian Visit by Indian Minister Hopes to Deny Pakistan New Weapons

    Post  Pinto 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.

    Russia - Pakistan military deals - Page 6 Empty Russian troops arrive in Pakistan for first-ever joint military exercise

    Post  Pinto 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.

    Russia - Pakistan military deals - Page 6 Empty Real Deal: Pakistan Confirms Interest in Russian Su-35 Fighters

    Post  Pinto 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.

    The Su-35, NATO reporting name Flanker-E, is a multirole fighter that is capable of engaging several air targets simultaneously.

    Russia - Pakistan military deals - Page 6 Empty Su-35s for Pak: Pie in the sky

    Post  Pinto Sat Sep 24, 2016 2:29 pm

    https://in.rbth.com/blogs/stranger_than_fiction/2015/09/18/su-35s-for-pak-pie-in-the-sky_425933

    There are a number of reasons why the Russian ‘offer’ to sell the Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighter to Pakistan is headed for a crash landing.

    Is Russia planning to win friends in Pakistan and lose influence in India? If Russia sells the advanced Su-35 fighter aircraft to Pakistan, it is likely to lead to a major diplomatic rift with India. So why did Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov make the statement that Russia and Pakistan were “negotiating for the delivery of an unspecified number of Su-35 jets” to Islamabad?

    The best case scenario is that Russia is keen to ensure India’s return to its fold. As India enters into an increasing number of defence partnerships with Russia’s rivals, particularly Israel and the US, but also France and the UK, Moscow believes two can play the game. It is in this backdrop that Russia has entered into a defence cooperation agreement with Pakistan.

    Another reason could be that the judgement of some Kremlin players is clouded by the pressure of economic sanctions and they would like to grab a larger share of the global arms market in which Russia traditionally has been a leader. However, this possibility can be discounted as western sanctions have not had the intended impact. Despite an unfavourable geopolitical climate in 2010-14, Russia accounted for 27 per cent of the global arms market, with approximately $14 billion in exports. In fact, Rosoboronexport, Russia’s weapons export cartel, has orders exceeding $40 billion on its books.

    Russia’s offer to Pakistan could, therefore, be in the same category as the forever-on-hold S-300 sale to Iran. Moscow has attempted to squeeze diplomatic concessions from the US and Israel as payoff for withholding the air-defence system from Tehran.

    Likewise, the Russia-Pakistan talks over the Su-35 could be a ploy to get India fully on board the PAK-FA stealth fighter programme. The Indian Air Force (IAF) was originally committed to buy 200 of these fifth generation fighters but has since cut back the planned buys to 127. Now India wants to buy these jets directly off the production line from Russia rather than jointly develop the aircraft.

    Perhaps the Russians believe that Pakistan’s possession of the Su-35 could scare India to buy larger number of the PAK-FA. India may also be forced to purchase other advanced Russian weapons as sops for blocking the Sukhoi sale.

    What can the Su-35 do?

    With around 60 MiG-29s and a Su-30 fleet projected at 300, India currently enjoys an enormous advantage over Pakistan. While India would like to maintain this edge, the Su-35 will make a dent – albeit a slight one – in the IAF’s advantage. Although the much larger IAF, with its AWACS force multipliers, would easily tackle the Super Flanker, the presence of a brand new fighter – that is more powerful than anything in the IAF – could cause some anxiety among India’s war planners.

    According to Pakistani analyst and former PAF pilot Kaiser Tufail, the Su-35 being a twin-engine aircraft with an extremely long range, would help Pakistan “have a significant and potent presence in the Arabian Sea”.

    He adds: “These fighters would also allow unhindered patrolling by naval (long range maritime patrol aircraft), as well as providing top cover to our fleet at sea....Essentially, I see it as a guarantor of maritime security as far as the airspace is concerned.”

    To be sure, the Su-35 will be a game changer only if wielded in sufficient numbers and in sync with other air defence assets and missiles. But Pakistan is unlikely to order more than two squadrons of the Su-35 because of the expenses of operating a heavy fighter. The Super Flanker burns as much fuel per hour as an entire Karachi neighbourhood. Plus, twin engines would mean double the maintenance time of a single-engine F-16 in the PAF fleet.

    Diplomatic powwow

    How serious is the offer? Ryabkov is a junior minister in Russian cabinet. But making an offer to a financially insolvent client – that is also an exporter of terror – is one thing. Making it stick is a different ball game. Approval for the sale will have to go through several rungs of the Russian parliament Duma and the military, plus there are higher powers in Vladimir Putin’s inner circle who can overrule Ryabkov. So there’s every possibility that the Su-35 for Pakistan will end up being the equivalent of the S-300 for Iran.

    However, in the highly unlikely scenario that the Su-35 wears Pakistani colours, Russia can say goodbye to its largest buyer. Although Russia was the second largest arms exporter in the world during the period 2010-14, it was less diversified than the US. According to SIPRI, “Three countries; India, China and Algeria; accounted for almost 60 per cent of total Russian exports.” India alone accounted for 39 per cent.

    In contrast, the US which led with 31 per cent, had Korea as its top buyer at just 9 per cent. The US therefore had a better spread than Russia.

    So without India, Russia’s arms exports will atrophy. And although the likes of Algeria, Indonesia and Malaysia continue to be steady buyers of Russian weapons, the flows to these countries are a trickle rather than a torrent. No country offers Russia such a long-term market as India.

    India was also the first international customer for the MiG 29, and in fact expressed interested in it during its development in the early 1980s. Again, the IAF was among the first air forces in the world to induct the Su-27/30. India’s early investment in the PAK-FA project is enough indication of its seriousness in the project.

    In the backdrop it seems unlikely Russia will go ahead with ramping defence ties with Pakistan beyond a few helicopter gunships.

    Stopping the Kozyrevs

    It was under Andrei Kozyrev’s watch that India diversified away from Russia. Kozyrev (Russian foreign minister from 1990 to 1996), who sought close ties with the West, had declared after the Soviet Union was dissolved that the new Russia would no longer give special importance to India and would in fact treat India and Pakistan as equals. So basically, the country that was indirectly responsible for the deaths of 15,000 Soviet lives during the Afghanistan War was preferred by him over friendly India.

    Deepa Ollapally of George Washington University writes in the paper ‘Indo-Russian Strategic Relations: New Choices and Constraints’, “Kozyrev relegated India to a secondary role. During this initial phase, which was to last until 1996, India was forced to take the initiative to try to build new bridges to the Duma and utilise earlier Soviet lobbies. India was able to exploit lobbies against Kozyrev's tilt which had formed in the Russian Federation presidential apparatus. It was aided by such figures such as Vladimir Lukin who called for greater attention to be paid to old allies.”

    “However, then Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao had no choice but to diversify India's security links as its most crucial erstwhile ally continued to labour in confusion and anxiety over its economic and political status, with no clear signal regarding its foreign policy preferences.”

    Kozyrev currently lives in Miami where he has acquired money and a nice tan. He slams Putin to the delight of his American backers. The thing India and Russia must do is sidestep or sideline such actors and keep the phone lines open. For, just as there are a few Indian leaders wanting closer ties with the West at Moscow’s expense, there are some Russian leaders who cannot see the importance of having India on their side.

    According to Ryabkov, increasing military cooperation between Islamabad and Moscow would not negatively impact Russia's ties with India. His statements would vindicate Rao’s decision to wean India away from over-dependence on Russia. Compared with Rao, current Prime Minister Narendra Modi belongs to the right leaning RSS, which is pro-American. He is unlikely to treat such an issue lightly.

    Russia - Pakistan military deals - Page 6 Empty Su-35 for Pakistan Air force

    Post  HIT AND RUN Wed Sep 28, 2016 6:35 am

    I just want to know that, Pakistan and Russia are in talks about the delivery of Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets and previously agreed upon delivery of Mi-35M helicopters, and also Mi-35M ‘Hind E’ combat helicopters was sent to Pakistan from Russia.

    In short, the PAF may seek up to six Su-35s for around $500 million U.S. Normally, Pakistan would engage in big-ticket arms purchases through the use of term financing or line of credits extended by the vendor. So, my question is it Pakistan would need to pay for its purchases of su-35 upfront with cold hard cash? Or, use of term financing or line of credits extended by the vendor Russia can be thinkable? russia thumbsup

    There are no such talks. PAF budget is currently tied up with JF-17 acquisitions and even getting financial aid from China is proving difficult to fund.

    Pakistan received all four ordered Mi-35M helicopters

    According to the Shephard Media resource in the publication Pakistan Receive Mi-35M Quartet, with reference to the Pakistan Export Promotion Organization (DEPO), Pakistan received all four Mi-35M helicopters ordered by Rostvertol.

    Recall that in August 2015, a report was published on the conclusion of Rosoboronexport JSC a contract for the supply of four Mi-35M helicopters to Pakistan.

    Hello there friend,

    I would like to add to your comment regarding Pakistan Air Force's JF-17 Thunder program. It is correct that Pakistan Air Force solely concentrating on the Thunder Program as it is the country's first ever foray into Combat Aircraft design development and manufacturing. Prior to this PAC had only ventured in basic trainer i.e the MFI-17 Super Mushak aircraft and a joint venture in intermediate trainer jet, which is the K-8P Karakoram. This program holds a significant importance in Pakistan, as it symbolizes an independence and self-reliance for Pakistan Air Force who has for many decades depended on Western combat aircraft to fulfill its defense needs. It is true that the military budget is leaning heavily toward the development of JF-17 Thunders. As it stands today, Block-ll Thunders are well underway in being mass produced. PAC (Pakistan Aeronautical Complex) is at a crucial juncture for the Block-lll Thunder development. Speculations are rife with the possibility of various new tech incorporated into Block-llls. Such as AESA, IRST, HOBS, HMD and even an up-rated engine. So you can see why Pakistan Air Force wouldn't be shifting it's focus on other aircraft at present time. Even if it is J-10s or the Su-35s. Both of which are very capable in their own respect and a technological achievement by their respective country of origin.

    Having said that, there is no denying the fact that Pakistan Air Force has a definite requirement for Air-Superiority combat aircraft for it's fleet. But since there have been several new aircraft which have already joined Pakistan Air Force, with the likes of Erieye AEWs, ZDK-03 Karakoram Eagles, IL-76 Midas, Cn-295 Pursuaders, F-16 C/D Block-52 Fighting Falcons, as well as the Block-15 Fighting Falcon's MLU update. So you can clearly see that Pakistan Air Force has had a very busy few years in not only inducting new aircraft and capabilities into it's force structure. But more importantly, as with any air force, it has been busy integrating these new capabilities into it's combat doctrine, as well as streamlining it's base infrastructure to facilitate these new capabilities. Being a medium sized air force with a very specific role in the defense of the country. It is only natural for Pakistan Air Force to "pace" itself, while also concentrating on the further development of the Thunder Program. So it is not just about monetary requirements, but more so a concerted effort of an Air Force to effectively absorb new tech and capabilities. As it stands, Pakistan Air Force has a requirement of 250-300 JF-17 Thunders. Hence it's only natural to forecast that the it would not be for another 2-4 years before Pakistan Air Force starts it's search for an Air-Superiority combat aircraft.

    Recall that the contract for the supply of four Mi-35M helicopters to Pakistan was signed by Rosoboronexport JSC in August 2015. All four Mi-35M helicopters manufactured by Rostvertol were shipped to Pakistan as early as 2017.

    It was reported that at present, the Pakistani side is conducting pre-contract negotiations on the purchase of five more Mi-35M helicopters, and in total expresses its intention to acquire 20 such helicopters
