India likely to buy Off-the-shelf Russian Stealth Fighters

India is likely to buy off-the-shelf, Russia’s Sukhoi T-50 (also known as PAK FA) stealth fighter. India is seeking 43 improvements in T-50 suiting Indian conditions. Since the FGFA programme will take time to take off, buying T-50 stealth jets will fulfill the urgent need of the Air Force. Moreover, India is also looking for collaborating with Russian companies to modernise its SU-30MKI aircraft, the most advanced multirole air superiority fighters with the IAF.
