Re: Indian Military Aviation - 06 March 2019

It is best to avoid Russian planes for civil aviation. They have a horrible record with the latest to bite the dust is the SSJ series. The initial lower cost of Russian planes are deceptive and more needs to be taken into account -Overall serviceability/availability, life time running costs etc. 100%
