True but assuming that the pilots are all well trained say the best USAF pilot using a F-22 vs the best IAF pilot using the MiG 1.42 who do you think would win and both the pilots are equal in skills.

thats just weird ur putting an IAF pilot into Mig 1.42, the Russians will be the first ones to have it and im assuming they wont be selling it for quite a while.
. As for technical assistance, what do you mean ? I never said the Indians haven't in some way assisted Russian modifications on the Su-27 family, I'm aware that they played a minor role in achieving todays Su-25 in the area of cockpit display, not quite sure.
Also what is really interesting is that the SU-30MKI might be jointly marketed by India and Russia(MKI is got a lot of Indian tweaks) to countires like Malaysia and Indonesia, though the original aircraft design and intellectual property rights remain with Russia..thats quite a lot of technical assistance to me
