If India purchased from US, French, and Israeli suppliers and excluded Russian suppliers I do not think it would change the military balance between India and Pakistan.

If Pakistan stopped supplying Ukraine and gave China the opportunity to offer something in exchange (this is an important reciprocal part of my suggestion) then it would help Russia on the battlefield.

I'm sorry to say this but I think you're just trying to find an excuse and are the 4th Pakistani commentator to ignore concerns.
We don't care if Pakistan aids Ukraine militarily because their aid can't change anything and Russia knows it too.

Imagine if you will, you are one of those poor Indian Brahmos salesmen at the recent Middle East expo. Your missile costs $5.5 million to make, so let’s say you try to sell it for $6m a piece.

Along comes the Chinese salesman, offering 240 PL-15E’s for $6.3m each and he throws in 20 J-10’s for FREE!

edit: in seriousness, the contract is BNPL (buy now, pay later), with low interest rate, no pre-payment penalty, I.e. a great piece of financing. The whole contract is compelling in fact.

If true, not a bad deal China is giving Pakistan. $94 million USD per J-10CE with a load out of 12 missiles each and ten spare engines. And China is loaning them 92% of the total cost at only 4.15% while also giving Pakistan the option of free early repayment. At these terms, the J-10 is a much better deal than its competitor flown by India.

The French charged India $218.6 million per Rafale including missiles, spares, and equipment. Egypt is paying $130 million for their Rafales, so the overly inflated Indian price might be another case of Indian governmental/MIC incompetence. I don't see how the changes India requested equate to a $88.6 million USD difference. Thats almost the entire cost of a J-10CE that India is spending over what other countries are for Rafales.
