anon @ 6:10. –i think the su 35 has a different radar with capablity to show more targets . pts called N035 Irbis radar system or something. soon the su 35s will have a new radar called IRBIS E and the indian su 30 mkis would be upgraded to it from 2010 onwards. single seat su 35BM will be a good option for india as lot of trainig is required for these two seater aircraft and more pilots. its all the same in comparison with the su 30 MKI, so the same squadron can operate the same aircraft with the… Read more »

what we got from this exercise,except loosing our secrets and
nation is proud to see su 30 being deployed abroad,US government is so much protective to save it’s military tech that even it’s allies are refused to share tech,why can’t
our government does the same,this example shows kursk disaster was related to spying by brits and americans.

and no wonder if they follow our nuke subs,brits and americans are still one when it comes these kind of scenerios.

in the international airspace it is absolutely permissible for airlanes to spy each other, but US using ELINT on the aircraft of a country it has invited is really unwanted. americans are a really scared group of people, probably because they r felling guilty about waging so many wars.what has happened regarding the ELINT is nothing as compared to the information that india gave to US formally over the pretext of ‘network centricity’, and then the us would have had a close physical look of all the major components. US pilots were flown on our aircraft, inspite of the fact… Read more »

Its part of the game , IAF knows it will be spooked when on such mission and hence they take extreme care on they use radar and other EW equipment.

I am sure when the USAF or other countries come to India for exercise ,the IAF tries the same trick.

We should be more careful about ground spies than such stuff.

These days of software re-programmable radar and EW equipment , it provides additional safety measures.

This frequency or whatever, is it so unchangeable?

why not cycle the frequency/ or change it permanently after coming back to India? Forgive my lack of technical knowledge on this front.

Sir, The so called development of Indo-US relations is itself disturbing. US has always played twin-roles, one of supporting Pak and other hand(now a days) of supporting India by going into nuclear deal,offering mili aircrafts and so called invitation to joint exercises. On the other hand our relations with Russia is worsening day by day( E.g Delay of Vikramaditya, Post-design invite to take part in PAK-FA programme etc).. The current incident of spooking of Su-30’s by US spy planes in Nevada is itself an example of US policy.(think it is second such incident reported by you) Our Govt./ Mili Bosses… Read more »

someone has said above india tries the same tricks when other fighters come to india. first of all it seems that IAF doesnt have the capablity to get the frequency etc, even if india had they wouldnt have done it, we r too ‘clean’ it seems. all paplu kind(right on top, we have a helichopter pilot) of people run our airforce now, it lacks shrewd tacticians who in the past have won wars for india when our enemy’s were far more adnanced than us. and then what will india do with getting secret information abt ancient fighters like F 15,… Read more »

Americans are known for stabing on the back.

I am worried americans will sell this data to all airforces which have purchased F-16; as Software upgrades to increase their sales of their ancient machines.

That includes PAF (pakistan air force)
The CIA has very close relation with ISI. so free upgrades to paf
Now even those stupid paf f-16 will have some(if not more) guts to think about fighting Su-30MKI
GOD give some Bhuddhi to our Governmnet who allowed IAF to go there in Red Flag

If Americans are known for stabbing in the back, then Shiv Aroor is also an American.

US doesn’t know the secrets of barsradar because only india and malaysia have these radars and these were never used in any exercise with anyone this is the second time india took these aircraft to froeign land thats why they are trying to get it’s frequencies so we should be very aware of and save our secrets. thats why US doesn’t use f22 on foreign land with foreign air forces neither they export it just see how protective they are,they are selling us f18 for which they don’t even allow to transfer aesa tech these exercises are of no use… Read more »

the F-15s which US fielded for the excercise along with the Sukhois has had its share of problems just before the excercise. As according to the ,american media reports “..they were largely grounded from from Nov. 3, 2007, to Jan. 10 after an F-15 broke apart in mid-air over Missouri. An investigation found that 160 of the Air Force’s nearly 700 F-15s had defects..”

The whole purpose of this excercise from the american perspective was nothing but to dig for more info reg. Sukhois.

By spooked, do you simply mean tailed? Or do you mean , the aircraft some sort of external electronic interference? Why would there be electronic interference off the coast of England, or while “entering” the US. I would think their radars would be turned off no? It makes sense that there would be some attempt at intereference during Red Flag. I would also expect that the Sukhois may have also been able to gather some sort of data on the F-16s as well, yes? Indian delusions of self importance never cease to amaze me. The IAF isn’t stupid. Give them… Read more »

Maybe one reason they want the MKI's technological secrets, i.e. the frequency bands, is so they can counter Tikhomirov's N001V radars used on PLAAF Shenyang J-11s and Sukhoi Su-30MKKs.
