india to have 230 sukhois by 2015.

defence minister A K antony told the rajya sabha today that india plans to procure 230 sukhois by 1015.

he said that india had procured 98 sukhois since 1996 .

he added that the sukhoi was the worlds most advanced aircraft and the air force was happy with its performance.

he also ordered an investigation in the crash of the sukhoi in jaisalmer .

ashdoc wonders if the statement is a pipedream .

uptil now india has managed to produce only limited number of sukhois in india.

the earlier schedule was to produce sukhois upto 2017. this had slipped to 2018 until recenly .

the govt was forced to buy an additional 40 sukhois from russia to increase the numbers.

the original contract was of 40 sukhois from russia ang 140 to be license manufactured in india .

after the asian economic crisis of 1997 indonesia could not afford to buy the 10 sukhois it was going to buy .

so india decided to buy them.

so we have got 50 sukhois from russia so far.

the govt talks of increasing the rate of production but how can that be done with such a complex aircraft is a mystery.

Our folks in DOD ministry are idiots, had they given the production rights to say TATA or BIRLA, we would have had better rates of production than we have now.
