I'm guessing they will use these in Cashmere. Expect stories on the news about India and Pakistan having heated battles in the mountains.

Nope it's will be stationed near Chinese Border, India plans to raise a new corps named Mountain strike corps which act against Chinese aggression , all those new hardwares supports the Mountain division

The FGFA is in trouble. Russia ran into issues with the T-50, which led to India slashing their order and being very unhappy with what they're getting.

India just dumped a lot of money into it, largely because at this point they almost have to go ahead with it as their options are limited.

that's the truth, Russia itself has problems with dealing the T 50, so far not good numbers of Prototypes, no info about the engine fire, which causes damage to a T 50 prototype

Russia has successfully sabotaged the French Rafeal deal and instead the money is being pumped to FGFA. That's - $20Billion for france

lol is the Answer, DM saying Twisted numbers , one day he draws the 36 lines, next day more numbers maybe

that Russian FGFA info is complete BS.. we have plans to field a light aircraft if LCA Fails

Incorrect,and FGFA is supposed to fill the Sukhoi's and the Mig29s . The Delay in deals and Acquisition of the Rafael for years and years has lead to the cancellation of the deal. Indigenously developed LCA will replace the Mig 21 and the FGFA will replace the Sukhoi's and the Migs.

lol .. who told you, The LCA which is a Interceptor Multi role who is going to replace the Mig 21 fleet, If LCA failed someother light aircraft can replace it

The Rafale is an Omnirole which is replace the MiG 23/ 27.

No one going to replace MiG 29 which is just modernized into UPG version

another Sukhoi Su 30 will get Super sukhoi upgrade, FGFA not replaces Su 30

As apposed to western propaganda, the FGFA is running on schedule and Russia is due to get its first squadron of PAK-FA in 2017 and FGFA squadron will arrive by 2018. The sudden purchase of Rafeals in ready condition by India is as a stop gap measure.

we have plans to induct the T 50 (not FGFA) before 2020 if everything goes normal, original time line is 2018.

the FGFA pushed another 5 years preplanned 2020, now 2025 ( or no clear dates may be far beyond 2025 )

It's common sense that a heavy fighter will replace another. Fgfa is designed to replace the su-30mki and the mig-29 fleet. It has nothing to do with lca what so ever.

By the time t-50 matures into a good fighter aircrafts. The sukhoi models will be reasonably old. The super sukhoi is the current upgraded version of the sukhoi and is in no way a long term replacement.

I highly doubt there will be any purchase of the t-50 until all the problems are sorted out.especially with the unstealthy engines.

Fgfa will be Inducted either later this decade or early next t decade. read through the links I posted earlier. Only final phase of the design is left to be cleared

As for the dm. The Rafael deal is dead. The current purchase of 36 has nothing what so ever to do with the original contract which included tech transfer and production in India. There are other sources which say that current Rafael numbers which has been reduced will be replaced by addition all numbers of su-30 and some of the funds transfered over to lca as per the dm. Previous dm was an complete idiot and french made a fool out of his stupidity.
