Su-35 Super Flanker offered to India
I was in Zhukovsky, Russia in August last year for the MAKS 07 air show where the Su-35 air superiority fighter was unveiled to the public for the first time. The Hindu reports that Rosobornexport has formally put on offer the Su-35 to the Indian government, as a possible alternative to the MMRCA! I know my friend Hindu defence correspondent Sandeep Dikshit doesn’t weave castles in the air, so this one’s probably’s Rosoboron’s audacious little pipe dream. Though I wouldn’t put it past the IAF to now want all its Flankers standardised “in a phased manner” to the Su-35 standard!
