Russia, India to sign 10 bilateral agreements including semi-confidential ones, says Russian presidential aide | India News - Times of IndiaIndia News: MOSCOW (RUSSIA): Russia and India will sign 10 bilateral agreements in various areas including some semi-confidential ones following the talks between.www.google.com
What is the meaning of SEMI CONFIDENTIAL agreement
While 36 or 54 Rafales may be possible and desirable, although I feel it's too late, the MRFA will happen.
The Su-75 is a pie in the sky, it doesn't exist beyond a static model. And it won't gain traction until the Russians themselves buy it first. We are not dumb enough to repeat FGFA. If we ever go for a new Russian jet, it's gonna be the Su-57 or better, but after it's inducted. Even the Su-57 today is still a pie in the sky. So any discussion regarding a next gen jet's gonna have to happen after MRFA and LCA Mk2 are done deals. Checkmate's main competitor in India is AMCA, not MRFA.
As for the agreements, it's not gonna be in defence alone. We need nuclear reactors oil, gas etc.
