    Nice photos… I read in some news papers that AWACS would be fully operational after 2 months as some things were due to be fitted or so.. Is it true??

    And also why IAF symbol – like in earlier IL series is missing??

    Thanks for the Photos.

    The future 3 AWACS will probably be seen with an AIRBUS and not with IL-76 ….Indian Express reported.

    prasun k sengupta’s misconception about that this aircraft will be grounded most of times just because its russian plateform

    and PS90A engines are used in il96.tu204 everyday without any problem and if these commercial airlines can fly everyday without remaining grounded

    then this aircraft fitted with
    PS90A engiens is much better than older il76 fitted with d30 engines
    will no problems to be used in everyday operations

    and this proves prasun k sengupta wrong for is misconception that this aircraft will remaine grounded

    The massive dish atop the IL-76 would probably crush the tiny Embraer or the Saab business airplane.

    There are several classes of Phalcon radars with different technical capabilities and range. And logically the size differs from one that can be mounted on a business jet to one that needs a heavy lifter.

    To look deep inside our neighbour’s lands would need a long range device that is necessarily large in size. A large Phalcon device would need a hefty airplane like the IL 76.

    Maybe future Phalcons could be mounted on larger airplanes like the Airbus 330, but there are none in existence, is there?

    What is wrong with using an IL-76 anyway, apart from sloppy delivery schedules?

    Even i read some of our media quoting that future acquisitions will be mostly non-Russian.

    Well i feel, if our Mili.forces suddenly stop Russian Imports,security will go for a toss, as Russians may deny spares to alll our mil equipments like Su-30 MKI’s, T90 tanks etc…

    What do u feel Shiv

    ———————————you ar right ,anything to be developed in western world cost in tens of billions

    and may be possible india may order more A50 for phalcon and thats why they rejected il78 tanker

    sweden isn’t reliable either when someone like EU,US in some critical time put pressure on sweden not to supplu spares they they will move back

    nor is US and for that matter other EU members

    only france and russia likely to win MMRCA

    or for that matter it would be either rafale(french has said tech transfer) or some mig35 may be ordered
