    India and Russia signed Inter-Governmental Agreement for developing Multi Role Fighter Aircraft
    [​IMG]
    India and Russia signed an Inter-Governmental Agreement for designing, developing and producing the Multi Role Fighter Aircraft. The announcement was made by Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on 5 December 2014 during the parliamentary session.

    Moreover, Indian Fighter aircraft MIG 21 is being phased out and aircrafts MIG 29 are being procured from Russia. With the fifth generation stealth technology, the aircraft strikes would be high as they cannot be immediately detected by radar.

    However, no deal has been struck with Russia for procurement of Fighter Aircraft equipped with stealth technology. Till date, no agreement has been signed with any country for the procurement or purchase of fighter aircrafts.

    Apart from these Multi Role Fighter Aircrafts, around 20-30 indigenously-built Light Combat Aircraft Tejas will also be commissioned soon by India.


    more news and conformation news coming soon.

    So they won't sign a contract to build 108 Rafales at home, but they will sign a contract to buy foreign-made MiGs.

    By "Make In India", they meant "Make in Russia", right?

    What a dysfunctional mess, air power is supreme in war, you need a Manhattan project like the one we used to develop the atomic bomb.

    Sir then why airpower with F-22, B-1 , F-18, F-15 etc are not able to wipe ISIS????? Penny jihadis arguably this is most potent mix of best in the business fighters that any airforce can field in but still not good enough to stop ISIS rogue terrorist

    So air power alone cannot win you any thing boots on ground matters

    This is first of many FGFA/PMF contracts.

    Not related to additional Mig-29 procurement
