India signs mega defence deal with Russia
India, yesterday, signed the biggest defense deal in it's history. The deal with Russia will involve the supply of 200-250 Fifth Generation Fighter Aircrafts(FGFA), being developed by Russia's Rosoboronexport and Sukhoi. The aircraft, being touted as 'Perspective multi role fighter' or PMF, will give a new edge to India's combat ability. Previously discussed on this blog, this aircraft will be no less capable than other 5th generation aircraft being developed or in production, like USA's F-22 or F-35, and India's own Medium Combat Aircraft.
