It could also be that we are now installing fully built up Al-31FP engines in India.

We are just assuming its an engine failure and that too both , Could well be some internal explosion or electric failure or bird hit that was the primary cause ...possibilities are infinite need to wait for DFDR to come up with truth.

with range of 300 km would be a great AAM for MKI upgrade program

Russia completing R-37M air-to-air missile trials

R-37M tactical and technical characteristics are not disclosed. Only the basic parameters are known. The design is a normal aerodynamic scheme with a low-aspect wing. The range exceeds 300 km. The weight is over 500 kg, the high-explosive fragmentation payload weighs 60 kg. The missile is equipped with non-contact active radar and standby contact fuzes.

R-37M can destroy air targets on head-on course. After receiving coordinates the inertial system aims the missile at the target and thus it is invisible for radars at the midcourse flight. Active homing warhead activates closer to the target. The adversary can detect its emission but the pilot has only fractions of a second to escape the hit. The missile develops a speed of Mach 6 at the final stage of the flight.

R-37M homing warhead has an advanced high-tech control. It is equipped with a new miniature digital processor with a big memory and increased speed. The warhead is resistant to electronic warfare. Maneuvering will not help the aircraft either as the missile will catch the target even if it maneuvers with an 8g overload.
