There would have to be a heck of a support package as the Indian fleet is french/russian/british , so the infrastructure isn`t there at all.
I put money on the MiG-29OVT/MiG-35

Who the hell are India with?. They use either British, Russian and maybe NATO equipment and weapons. They use Migs,Sukhois,Jaguars and harriers. Is thier government Schizofrenic(Split Personality) or somthing?.
The BIG question: Whose side is India on?.

Not really, not at all.
What's better, buying 5th gen fighters, with no chance of building them, or even possibly repair parts for them yourself [as would surely be the case with usa/lockheed]
Or jointly developing 5th gen fighters, and being able to make them and everything for them yourself [as would be with russia and Sukhoi/Mikoyan-Gurevich ]
