Well, the supposed Russian super-weapon isn't as attractive as it once seems---being compared unfavorably to the, yes, the F-35.

It could be a haggling tactic from the IAF. But in the end, the F-35 is, at last, flying today.

This is why the Indian Military is like it is.

All they do is haggle right up until they will miss the bus, then they miss the bus anyway.

There is no money. By 2025, in 7 years time india will run out of water. Racism is all time high. Atleast 2 farmers per day killed them selfs. Often with families. Mean While Indian military becomes only good at raping unarmed women..


Indian as in whole is reaching tipping point. But ppl are so submissive and broken to do somthing about it.

Actually, this may be more than a negotiating tactic: the key complaint is non modular engines, which will make maintenance a real pain...and hugely expensive. That is an absolute killer: the Indians fly their planes often and hard, in conditions that are murder on airframes and engines (hot and humid). The FGFA may be a great plane initially when it works, but what is likely to happen at present is that it will have a low availability rate,. will cost a lot to keep flying and when it does, things will go wrong. Sure all new planes have problems, but the ones the Indians have identified are real budget killers.
