    Russian Su-35 fighter will be a part of Brazilian tender again


    [​IMG]


    According to RIA Novosti, Russian Su-35 fighter will take part in a new Brazilian tender on delivery of a large batch of multi-role combat jets. It has been reported by the source from Brazilian military-industrial complex (MIC).

    The tender on acquisition of fighters for Brazilian air forces in accordance with F-X program has been put out in 2001 and cancelled in 2005. It has been renewed in 2008 as F-X2 and stopped again in 2010. American fighter Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, French Dassault Rafale, Swedish Saab JAS 39 Gripen NG and European Eurofighter Typhoon have taken part in this tender at different stages.


    Rosoboronexport has presented the multi-role "4++"-generation Su-35 fighter, but the jet has been excluded from the tender in 2008.

    According to a source in Brazilian MIC, the tender “will be renewed in the nearest future as F-X3, and the Russian fighter will be a part of it, moreover, it has a great chances to succeed: the Brazilian air force command speaks well of Russian jet ".

    The source has specified that “the meeting held in the network of BRICS summit on April 14th with the participation of president of Russia, Dmitriy Medvedev and the president of Brazil Dilma Rousseff has seriously influenced the situation since the presidents have discussed the situation with Brazilian tender ". Rousseff has stated that “no decisions on fighters’ acquisitions have been made and all the tender’s participants may take part in it again ".

    The second factor is that Moscow has offered Brazil to take part in fifth-generation fighter program, and “the Brazilian party has taken it seriouslyâ€.:what::what:

    The F-X2 tender’s conditions include the delivery of 36 fighters (with an option of joint assembly of up to 84 more jets in Brazil), spare parts, radar with active phase antenna array, air-to-air missiles of short and medium range (with active radar homer), controlled bombs with GPS homing, and technical support for a period of 10 years. According to different assessments, the amount of this contract will be $6-12 billion.

    Wouldn't you do the same if you were Russian?

    There are no permanent friends, only permanent national interests.

    You can write useless one line comments online, that is what you excel at apparently.

    BTW, Russian contender for MMRCA has not been short listed in case the news didn't reach the hole you live in.

    That blows your theory of "Congress loving Russia" to smithereens. Get back to me when you're done collecting pieces. :butcher:

    Two nights ago, I was watching a show called 'Money Mantra' on NDTV Profit. The host was Pankaj Pachauri and the list of guests included Jawed Naqvi, the Pakistani Columnist. They were discussing the economic crisis in Pakistan.

    At one point of time during the discussion Jawed Naqvi alleged that after the soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Morarji Desai, the then PM of India and George Fernandez joined hands with the Pakistani establishment to felicitate the Afghan Jihad. India also provided ship loads of hundreds of .303 rifles for the cause of Afghan Jihad.

    If that is true, anything can happen.

    I read the report of .303 rifles. The report i read states that .303 rifles from the Indian police forces which are decommissioned and India auctioned it. Some broker bought and sold to AF rebels then. India playing this angle was discussed and debunked.

    I read a some thing on Su family aircraft. if remember correctly, Su 35 is nothing but Su 30 MKI except for all Russian avionics. Since Su 30 MKI is has western avionics, consider Su 30 MKI is superior to Su 35. what is your opinion on this matter ? Any this is business deal not strategic defense deals. I guess Strategic defense deals are dead with Cold war.
