    "On its flight to India"? Fascinating that the IAF managed to position a RusAF IL78 with an UPAZ pod en route between Ben Gurion and Agra ! 🙂

    Me thinks that since the order for these awacs include airframe from russia and radar from israel, both russia and israel has equal responsibility to deliver these to India. Hence the RuAF IL-78 refueling IAF' Awacs.

    Now, my doubt is, why did this beast need a refuelling? This is very big aircraft, can't it carry enough fuel to reach India from Israel?

    Shiv, can you comment on this news. Why a new contract? don't we have the provision of options in the present contract?

    This has to have been a practice run becausr the a/c are flying over land. I don't think any country in that area would allow an Indian AWACS plane to fly over it's territory. Remember, the plane was to touchdown in Gujrat.
