Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

We also need to account for attrition, especially amongst the older aircraft. Assuming we get the 21 Mig-29s, we'll have ~178 Jags, Mig-29s, and M2Ks flying until 2025. Add to that ~50 MKIs that will be >25 years old by that time. Safe to assume we'll lose atleast 1.5 squadrons there.
