IAF in talks with Russia for urgent MiG 29 purchase

印度空军为紧急采购米格29与俄罗斯方面进行谈判



Indian Air Force,which is facing an acute shortage of combat aircraft, is in advance talks withRussia for an urgent procurement of MiG 29 fighters that can be delivered at arelatively short notice.

正面临严峻的战斗机短缺的印度空军,提前就紧急采购米格29战机方案与俄罗斯方面进行谈判,保证印度空军能够短时间内就获得这批飞机。

The plan to acquire 21additional aircraft to make a new squadron of MiG 29 jets that were firstpurchased in the 1980s has been discussed in detail last month and is expectedto cost the Indian exchequer less than Rs 6,000 crore, government sources said.

政府方面的消息人士表示,这一方案旨在获得额外的21架米格29战机(印度首架米格29 购买于上世纪80年代)以成立新的飞行中队,该方案上个月得到细致的讨论,希望能够以低于600亿卢比(约8.5亿美元)的价格实现采购。



The talks have gained strengthas the Air Force faces a depleting fighter squadron strength that has nowdwindled to just 31 against the sanctioned strength of 42. Even with the 36Rafale jets on order, the strength is expected to nosedive over the next threeyears as several legacy MiG 21 and 27 squadrons go offline.

谈判以取得进展。与此同时,印度空军正面临着战机中队力量衰减的风险,原先42架飞机的中队如今衰减至31架。即使订购了36架阵风战机,但随着几个老旧的米格21和米格27中队的退役,印度空军力量仍预计会在接下来的3年内继续衰减。



The Indian Navy too operatesthe naval version of the MiG 29, with the jets being the primary weapon of theINS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier. The navy has a total of 45 of the MiG29K/KUB fighters in service, the last of which were ordered in 2010.

印度海军同样服役着海军版的米格29,其是维克拉玛蒂亚号航母的主要武器。总计45架米格29K/KUB在海军服役,最新的一架是在2010年订购的。
