    Just check this..

    In 2001, the government of the People's Republic of China announced that it had discovered twenty-seven bugs(listening devices) in a Boeing 767 purchased as an official aircraft for President Jiang Zemin.

    It was identified during Electronic signal Sanitation/Audit and Electrical Auditing exercise Chinees did ..when the Aircraft was flying!!!

    India too bought few BBJ from Boeing US..not sure if Indian agencies have done smiler Electronic Signal Sanitation/Audit and Electrical Auditing exercise..with those planes while the plane is flying..?

    @Anon 7 :53 PM – The US does install trojan , listening sensors etc . The DRDO at times sweeps imported military hardware for Trojans. The US spies on India on a regular basis as Wikileaks pointed out . Hillary Clinton had asked CIA to spy on Indian diplomats in the UN. Flaws in iTunes can be used to spy on an individual . As of now India does not have the capability to counter such types of intelligence.

    While there is no doubt, there is spyware, kill buttons and backdoors, you got to give it to the Yanks for quick turnaround and delivery. Remember that this is a completely different configuration.

    Please note that the Yanks are treating India as a preferred partner in the light of declining defense budget in Europe where the Yanks have traditionally sold. Just take a look at the F 35 program , it is running 3 years behind schedule. What ordinary Indians do not realize is behind the scene the Yanks do a lot of arm twisting of Indian netas . Export models are watered down version of the original models and they never share source code. Not to mention the large scale CIA penetration of Indian political parties , media and business houses.

    @ Tinku…

    Thanks for sharing the image with the Mig & Kamov atop Vikramaditya !

    I believe I read they will be using a Mig-35 & an Su-33 since they don't have a Mig29K at their disposal for the testing. I am unsure as to why the Indian Navy wouldn't lend one of theirs for the testing as that would have constituted a better test – no ?

    @ Anon 2 :15 A.M – Depends how someone describes a "reliable source". More importantly why would they want to know about a "reliable source" …?

    Most Indian on this blog/forum are totally naive. US has be installing kill switches/bugs on their military hardwares for export. Even Pakis who have been buying US hardware for decades know about it more then us. Never ever take the Yanks on face value. You can never trust them.
