This is perhaps the first time when India’s ‘all weather friend,’ in defence procurement, Russia will be competing with New Delhi for an international sales opportunity.

 

Both Russia and India will be sending their fighters to participate in the static and flying displays where Malaysian Air Force officers are expected evaluate the aircraft as part of initiatial steps in the procurement process. Also in the fray are the Chinese-Pakistan JF-17 Thunder and the South Korean FA-50 but it is not known if the latter two have confirmed their participation in the LIMA program.

 

The LCA Tejas may be competitively priced as against the Yak-130 and Malaysia may not run the risk of US sanctions if its buys the Indian jet. However, India might still need US approval to sell its jet equipped with the American-made GE-404 engine.
