Russia optimistic about MIG-35's victory in Indian Air Force
Indian Air Force : Russia on Thursday expressed optimism that the MiG-35 fighter jets fielded by it in the Indian Air Force’s tender for acquisition of 126 Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) will prove an edge over its Western rivals and ultimately win the contract.
"We hope that our aircraft would be the winner," chief of Rosoboronexport (ROE), Russia's sole state intermediary agency for export-import of defence-related technologies and services, Anatoly Isaikin said.
"Russia is competing with top aircraft manufacturers of the US and Europe. Such tenders are carried out in several stages and takes time. We are in the middle and so far, no one has dropped out," he said.
Isaikin said MiG-35 is an air superiority fighter capable of taking on the current fourth and prospective fifth generation combat aircraft.
"From the point of view of technological inputs it is virtually a fifth generation fighter, unmatched by any of the European fighters," he said.
