    Russia will take part in a tender for the supply of 400 fighters for the Indian Air Force (IAF), Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Drozhzhov told RIA Novosti on Feb. 15.

    According to Drozdov, who is in Bangalore for Aero India 2017, Russia is going to offer India the latest MiG and Sukhoi jets.

    It was reported earlier that Russia is ready to offer India a new variant of the MiG-35 lightweight fighter.

    Ilya Tarasenko, General Director of the MiG Corporation, told TASS that the MiG Corp is ready to discuss supplies of MiG-35 with Indian partners. Tarasenko underlined that the corporation is ready to fully implement the principles of the Make in India programme and discuss issues of localization of aircraft production in India.

    According to Tarasenko, the MiG corp has already proved its capacity, implementing the program of modernization of the Indian MiG-29 to UPG level.

    India's fighter plane story seems to be getting bigger by each passing day, now Russia wants to supply 400 fighters to India. I think after Rafale MII doors will be shut for all as Rafale alone can do all the jobs plus it has naval version too. For lower end single engine we have Tejas, I don't think even Gripen would also get in. Russian have chance only with Pakfa or FGFA.
