    India pays Russia $1.2 billion in technology transfer fees for T-90S tanks
    https://www.defensenews.com/land/20...-in-technology-transfer-fees-for-t-90s-tanks/

    NEW DELHI — India has awarded a $3.12 billion contract for local production of 464 T-90S main battle tanks after paying a technology transfer fee to Russia.

    The contract was signed with little fanfare earlier this month. The deal stipulates that Russian original equipment manufacturer UralVagonZavod and arms export agency Rosoboronexport will be paid $1.2 billion for technology transfer, while India’s state-owned Ordnance Factory Board will be paid $1.92 billion for local production of 464 T-90S tanks, according to an Indian Ministry of Defence official.

    Can't even make the engines or transmissions ! Russia sure does know how to do business. Remember when U.S.S.R sold monkey kits to other socialist states? Russia has not forgotten the tricks of the trade. Good for Russia.

    "A senior OFB executive said complete localization of T-90S tanks in India is impossible, as a large number of parts must continue to be imported. The parts that will be locally produced include panoramic night sights, thermal imaging fire-control systems and explosive reactive armor, he added. However, the engines and transmission system that makes up 45 percent of the cost of a T-90S tank will come from Russia."

    Wow... that's almost half the cost of the tank that still must come from Russia after a $1.2B transfer of tech and OFB is India's national producer so this is Indians saying it's impossible to make everything in India... Trump only talks about making good deals but Russia MAKES GOOD DEALS.

    This is Russia's decade. I mean...it's all win for them in many fronts. It amazes me how Russia stays strong. It's not even funny.
    India will be milked to the full extend. Comprehensive National Development isn't there in India. Once India becomes properly industrialized, it may become greatly capable in defense manufacture. I see 2030 to be that year.
