    ... now I checked the original version
    http://politrussia.com/world/ob-laquo-otstalosti-raquo-rossiyskikh-268/
    and it's hilarious; the sentences (in the first paragraph) the translator skipped:
    but the articles goes on with apples-to-oranges comparisons, doesn't say anything if and how the production could be surged, etc.
    LOL!

    Russians produce nice models.

    But they have not been able to build much of anything except pretty nice corvettes and a few frigates lately.

    Their new DDG and SSN programs are taking years and years to get into the water.

    They want India to fund this behemoth...and India will be crazy if it does.

    I hope they learned their lesson from the Vikramaditya, which although it finally came in and has enhanced the Indian naval capability...it was billions over budget and many years late...and that was for the rebuild of an existing ship, not the build of one twice as big from the keel up.

    India should work with the US on its 3rd carrier and commit to more dollars up front (because they are going to spend that much with the Russians anyway if not more) and get a really decent product designed and helped produce by people who know how to do so.

    Russia/India defense deals

    This could be a defining moment in India-Russia relations as by end of this year most of the ongoing defence deals could be concluded. The total value of these defence deals is in the billions of dollars, higher than any deals struck by India with western countries.

    An Indian delegation is leaving for Russia to negotiate contracts on some very important defence acquisitions. Government sources told to Sputnik that a high level delegation will leave for Russia in a few days to discuss some strategic purchases for its maritime security.

    Sources say that India would like to finalize a deal to lease some submarines from Russia. As the US refused to share technology for building a nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the delegation would also start the discussion for a super-carrier with Russia. Last week, Russia officially offered its latest nuclear aircraft carrier 'Shtorm' to India.

    Sources say that, India and Russia concluded two very important negotiations only last week. First, both nations agreed to license-build 200 twin-engine Kamov Ka-226T light multi-role helicopters and secondly, to jointly develop a Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA). It is expected that the Design and Development contract for the FGFA will be signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India in October this year. India’s Defence Ministry expects the project will be completed in next 8-10 years.

    Sergey Goreslavsky, the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport’s deputy director said that the India army is equipped with a large number of vehicles produced in Russia as well as domestically-manufactured vehicles, constructed using Russian technology.

    KUBINKA (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) – Russia has supplied India with more than $65 billion worth of military vehicles since 1960, the Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport’s deputy director told Sputnik at the Army-2016 military forum near Moscow on Tuesday. “Over the past years we have signed over $65 billion worth of contracts,” Sergey Goreslavsky said.

    “Over the past years we have signed over $65 billion worth of contracts,” Sergey Goreslavsky said.


    He noted that the India army is equipped with a large number of vehicles produced in Russia as well as domestically-manufactured vehicles, constructed using Russian technology. “We have experience in transferring modern technologies to our Indian partners and we are ready to develop this experience, including creating joint ventures and organizing joint production,” Goreslavsky said

    The Army-2016 forum organized by the Russian Defense Ministry kicked off earlier in the day and will last through Sunday. The forum is held in the military-themed Patriot Park in Kubinka near Moscow and in a number of locations in Russian military districts.
