So at least the deal is not canceled. We need those jets desperately to fill our dwindling sqaudrons .

Re: Indian air force will go for smaller fleet of Russian stealth fighterjets

Any Idea why fighter Jet's are so expensive ,are they made of Gold & diamond ?
it's just Metal/electronics etc.
I can understand if a new country develop technology from scratch & spend money in R&D--but if you already have decades old technology-just need some upgrades--then why this millions/billions $$ cost ?

to be honest- I thought about it many times ?

what's the point spending so much money in gold & hiding it- better use it for betterment of life/education/earning bank interest etc etc.

for me any metal is OK.

the modern fighter jet is more expensive that gold of its equivalent weight . that is because unlike gold it is absolutely necessary for defending the country . the life of ordinary citizens and their peace and security depends on it . also , the technology in the jet takes years of research and developing the technology requires lots of monetary investment in R and D . Also extremely skilled personnel are required as labour to manufacture it .

An alternate view I got from a Super Liberal - why do we need so many nukes, jets, tanks and bombs? To protect the ordinary citizens who are dying from other causes. Deterrent is needed because we build boundaries and borders.

In India - Pakistan context.. malaria kills more people on both sides than bullets and bombs.

what in understand from your post...fighter jet;s cost Millions$$$ due to

Fear/safety
years of work/ R&D
monopoly of few manufacturers/countries


but what about old generation aircrafts -Mig/Mirage etc--they shd'nt cost more than a BMW car ?

Since China/India(Cheap labour) started manufacturing such aircrafts
so cost supposed to come down- like it happened with TV/DVD Player(once luxry -now ordinary items)..

does a BMW car protect you from your nation's enemies ? if not , then it should cost less .

A BMW only travels in X-Y direction whereas a fighter jet, however old, has to travel in X-Y-Z directions... and sometimes upside down. Plus it has to maintain its integrity at super high speeds... and not burst into a ball of flame. So scale the prices accordingly and you will understand why the price is not in similar ranges

Edit: And the comparison to DVD players... fighter planes are not mass-produced. There are just a few... and their prices are always at a premium. Consider them as limited edition
