    HAL is requesting DM NS to order 42 + (6 lost fighters in accident) more SU-3o MKI to keep Nashik plant running and retain work force. These 42 SU-30MKI will be used to replace the oldest fighters whose airframe life is near their end and to raise new SQDN and make up for 6 lost fighters............

    I would say it will be a good move but these should be in Super Sukhoi configuration..........

    Sri Lanka Looking to Buy 6 Ex-Indian Air Force Su-30K Aircraft: Local Media

    Sir Lanka’s local media has reported that Colombo is interested in purchasing six ex-Indian Air Force Sukhoi Su-30K fighter aircraft that have been grounded in Belarus.
    The negotiations were held last year from November 2-4 between company representatives of Lanka Logistics and Technologies Limited, fully owned by the Government of Sri Lanka, and Russia’s Irkut Corporation at 558 Aircraft Repair Plant, in Baranovichi, Belarus, Colombo’s news agency SL Guardian reported last week.
    Moscow has already sold 12 former Indian jets to Angola, and is reportedly waiting to sell 6 to Sir Lanka.
    The Su-30K aircraft are ex-Indian Air Force jets, which has ordered more than 200 Su-30MKIs in a number of batches. The early models delivered were basic aircraft without features like canards and thrust vector controls, and it is these 18 early model aircraft (ten Su-30MK and eight Su-30K fighters delivered between May 1997 and December 1999) that were returned to Russia and replaced with more advanced Su-30MKIs.
    The Sri Lankan government had previously been looking at the Chinese-Pakistani JF-17, however,this was met with protest by India who in turn suggested a procurement of its own development, the LCA Tejas.
    Instead, the government is looking at possibilities to buy 6 overhauled SU30MKI to “enhance the national security”.
    However, the report points out that a lack of trained pilots in the Sri Lankan Air Force (SLAF) could prove fielding the fighters difficult without additional funding for a new fighter training program and more advanced training aircraft.

    From new sensors to radars, the fleet will see a major change in the cockpit as well.

    The two-stage modernization program will cost approximately US $6 billion.

    Planned things, confirmation needs the final go of the MoD/GoI.

    - Either new or upgraded Russian radar
    - Brahmos
    - EW wingtip pods
    - possibly Astra
    - Samtel displays
    - DARE / custom EW
    - RCS reductions as part of the overhaul of the airframe

    Would love to see the twin pylons for AAMs on the centerline, that the Su 35 has (if that's possible for the MKI).
