India ready to spend $25bn on Russian 5G fighter jet – Remaining poorest Country in developed World

India, one of the poorest countries with the most poor people per populous % and they go and spend $25 Billion (£16.5 Billion) on War. Why do our leaders always have money for war but not enough to feed or home the poor. Do you know what $25 Billion could do for a poor country? It could re-home about 2 Million people, it could build over 5,000 new Schools, it could fix the infrastructure in India and still have change to make their education system and Health Service the best on Earth. That is what $25 Billion buys you, but nope, they always buy War. Your country and mine. This is just another rubbish story of the people we pay to help run our World paying for the wrong things to make it a worse World. If you have not figured this out yet, please try, the game is rigged


he stalemate over the 4th-gen Rafale fighter jets deal with France has forced the Indian military to accelerate an even larger project with Russia on the joint development and purchase of an equal quantity of 5th-gen fighters. India is now ready to invest $25 billion in the development and purchase of 127 fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft (FGFA). It will also make concessions to speed up the delivery of fighters and have the first ones available in 36 months instead of the previously envisaged 94 months, sources told The Times of India.

he initial contract signed with Moscow implied a 50:50 design and production agreement to develop an Indian version of Russia’s Sukhoi T-50 (PAK-FA) 5G fighter jet. The $295-million preliminary design contract signed in December 2010 envisaged the creation of a two-seat version of the PAK-FA and preconditioned that all single-pilot fighters must be assembled in India at the Ozar facility owned by India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) aerospace and defense company. Now that the estimated number of Indian Air Force combat-ready squadrons has decreased sharply, New Delhi isn’t objecting to Moscow producing the first batch of perspective multi-role fighter FGFA at Russia’s KNAAPO facility in Komsomolsk-na-Amure. KNAAPO has been producing the initial batch of PAK-FA fighter jets since the beginning of 2013.

“We have agreed to a lesser work-share for a realistic contract, with the initial lot of the FGFA being imported and the rest being made here under technology transfer,” a source at HAL told the Times of India. And it appears that future Russian-made fifth-generation fighter aircraft for India will cost little more than European 4G jets, as the final negotiations with Dassault for purchase of 126 Rafale medium multi-role combat aircrafts indicated the price will exceed $20 billion. The FGFA contract however will not replace the outgoing Rafale tender, as India is likely to replace it by buying a corresponding quantity of the Russian Sukhoi-30MKI fighters already being produced in India.  “As for the Russian Sukhoi-30MKI fighters (the majority of the 272 Sukhois contracted for $12 billion are being made by HAL), the curve in technology absorption will also be steep in the FGFA project,” the HAL source added. India’s Ministry of Defense is currently working hard on resolving the situation with Dassault before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to France in early April.
