    I expect the USA will buy a few of the Russian Planes either directly or in directly, its a good way to check out their technology and flight characteristics and they come in handy for training pliots at red flag. One of the russian jets dug up that Saddam buried is at WrightPat Musem in Dayton Ohio,,,Russian workmanship on their planes is not impressive.

    The plane you are talking about is Mig-25, decades old, and a plane infamous for engine flame-outs and burns due to very high rotational speeds of the compressor blades. It was a high altitude high speed aircraft which compromised on almost everything to reach speeds above Mach 3.2 and altitude only reachable by SR-71. Quite impressive I must say.

    Loyal and trustworthy? None.

    Our loyalty should be towards Indians and Indian interests, international friendship comes secondary to that.

    I thought Brazil is heavily tilted towards F-18SH, since Eurofighter is already out coz' of cost factor.

    The Su-7 and MiG-23MF are displayed in museum at Wright-Patterson AFB now, together with one Mi-25, also US picked up some Mig 29s in Iraq.

    in my opinion you should not worry about it, in latin america, western lobbies are stronger than anything else, the Su-35 has little chances to win, most likely Brazil will buy Rafales, they are building a nuclear submarine with french help, second Brazil is not a threat to anyone, specially India, Brazil does not need a lot of weapons, most latin american nations are using Kfirs and a few Mirage III and F-5s, Chile and Venezuela are the best armed with F-16s and Su-30s, and contrary to Asia, in latin america we are very homogeneous, from Mexico to Argentina we speak spanish or portuguese (portuguese is basicly a dialect of spanish or viceversa i understand portuguese well) catholic and few protestants and we are basicly the same ethnicities, besides most nations have less than 40 million people populations only Mexico or Brazil get beyond 100 million and there is still plenty of resources, Brazil in my opinion will buy french and perhaps later in 15-20 years F-35 or a new european jet.

    Brazil is more interested in building satellites and a satellite launcher from Russian tech transfers, the brazilians are more interested in civil technology

    The Rafale lobby is always the strongest, Brazil only wants to be let alone as the leader of south america but it is a western nation and is a nation that is friend of Europe and a partner of the US, they are not like China or Russia that are rivals of the US

    you do not need to worry most likely Brazil will buy french.

    Venezuela or Bolivia buy Chinese but they are doing it for price [​IMG]
    , venezuela bought Su-30 but it is not like the Su-30MKI you have, they do not build them and do not have the military capability of China or India they are just expensive toys for Chavez

    it is unlikely they will get them from Brazil. latin americans are more interested in soccer than in weapons
