  • Russia's United Aircraft Corporation said in a statement Tuesday that the Su-57 fighter came down during a training flight near Komsomolsk-on-Amur in the country's far east. It said the plane's pilot safely ejected and there was no damage on the ground. The cause of the crash wasn't immediately known.

    "Thirteen fighter aircraft have crashed during the period from 2017-18 to November 2019. Every accident is followed by an investigation by a BoI or a CoI which gives causes of accident and suggests remedial measures to avoid similar accident in the future. "These recommendations are circulated to all the operating units for implementation," he said.

    "We have the best product technologically advanced F21 for IAF and F/A 18 which I understand the Navy is very much interested in. That competition will be concluding soon and I hope resolution will be satisfactory for both the parties," Joel Starr, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs in the US Department of State said.

    "This time, the IAF is planning to hold trials of all the competitors who participate in the tender in less than a year so that time is saved. The fact that most of the systems and avionics of the participating firms have been tested will also help in shortening the time taken from trials," defence sources told ANI.

    The JF-17 Thunder, earlier named as FC-1 Xiaolong, was a single-engine multi-role light fighter jet jointly produced by the two countries for several years with engines supplied by Russia. The upgraded version features the technologies of China's stealth fighter J-20.

    China currently has one aircraft carrier, Liaoning, a refit of the Soviet era ship which was commissioned in 2012. It is being largely used for training, especially to test the carrier fighter jet J-15 which has been specifically developed to operate from the decks of the aircraft carriers. According to a media report China has established a huge aircraft carrier factory. .

    It is expected that the two sides will sign the Industrial Security Annex (ISA) that will enable transfer of technology by a US firm to its Indian partners in the private sector. While several US companies, including Lockheed Martin and Boeing, are already working on defence products with Indian partners — mostly to meet offset obligations.
