    Ilyushin-78M fitted with cfm56 engines is equally good in range nad fuel carrying capability

    or probably russia will start selling these tankers to pakistan as you all know pakis also need cheaper tanker

    so russia wil sell them if india doesn't want il78

    Guys,
    Get to know things first before you start commenting. IL-78 factory is with Ukraine not Russia.
    Pak is getting those refuelers from Ukraine not Russia.
    Refuelers are considered force multipliers, so its better to have refuelers from two different makers, so that we donot get blackmailed in time of need for extra money.

    like some gentlemen above are saying if India does not take il 76 then Russia will move to Pakistan but the point is how many can Pakistan buy,,,they do not have any money to buy ,,,they seem to be buying J 17 from china on a soft loan…Is Russia willing to give them il 76 on a soft loan?

    ROFL, another "headline" contract to please the gullible. Six/ten refuellers will do nothing for IAF. They need a fleet of 28-30 A330 class refuelers, minimum.

    But then again, Sonia's ????? is not buying new aircraft for IAF either, and LCA is being killed by continued underfunding.

    So IAF will not have many aircraft to refuel in half a decade, anyway.

    What a country.

    I fail to understant why we place a piecemeal order. Why not 10 tankers in one go unless money is the problem. At least order the quantity that is going to make some difference.

    u r right next time if we need more tankers a300 mrtt then we have to pay more price than what v r paying today

    and its pretty obvious that IAF will definitely need more tankers
