BEIJING: Russia has finally delivered four Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets to China after a delay of two years as Moscow feared that its fifth generation jet will lose value after Chinese military unveiled its J-20 stealth fighter, official media here reported.
The Su-35 is an advanced version of the Su-30s operated by the Indian Air Force+ .
The delivery was made on December 25, a news portal of the People's Liberation Army reported. Since the debut of the China's stealth fighter J-20 fighter at Zhuhai Airshow, procurement of the Su-35 fighter jets has gone quite smoothly.
Some say this is the outcome of the close relationship between China and Russia. However, the latter did not change its stance on the export of the Su-35 until the J-20 fighter was unveiled, state-run People's Daily reported.
India should also move in the same step. Russians had delay on delivering the aircraft carrier and also spares for the fighter planes and warship with them and also doubled the cost as offered in the beginning.Hope US and other super power will act rightly with India
That is why ''Make In India''.
What is in Name
India should seriously decide the so called "friendship" with Russia. The abrupt and unreliable behavior of present Russian govt: is not good for India.
If employees in DRDO and HAL sleep during office hours throughout their career and after retirement get fat benefits till death, then God save India.
China is having huge money power , Russia in dare need of money
Why today, our friend Russia playing in China & Pakistan hands ? We should cancel the Weapons purchase deal with Russia immediately and replace PM as well.
Next century will be India, US & Europe VS Russia , china, and all Jihadi countries

No need to worry. China can only buy 4 fighter jets. They can not afford more than that! India can buy hundreds of Tejas, Rafales, f35 and f22. Besides, India is helping Russia develop 5th generation fighter jets the T50. India is light years ahead of China in technology! India the GREATEST!
We should not depend upon either Russia or USA on defense . Local arm industries will only solve our defense needs.
