The Russia’s MiG-35 ‘downed’ the French fighter Rafale from Indian market

NEW DELHI, (BM) – Russian MiG-35 “killed” the French fighter Rafale. Experts from the Hindustan Times believe that the spread of the coronavirus did not allow France to sell fighter jets to India, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

France refused to produce military aircraft, which India had previously bought. By its decision, the French authorities foiled a deal with the customer.

It is worth noting that in France, the production of the Dassault Aviation aircraft manufacturing line was completely stopped due to the coronavirus infection pandemic.

The quarantine at the enterprise will be extended for at least another two weeks. Recall that the first batch of fighters was supposed to go to India in May 2020.

Now, instead of Rafale, India can get more than a hundred Russian MiG-35 aircraft. This is due to the fact that New Delhi does not want to disrupt its own plan for the rearmament of the country’s air force.

The Military Expert did not rule out that the customer could accuse France of disrupting the deal and acquire aircraft from another manufacturer. Specialists of the publication said that in India they had previously refused to buy Russian fighters for no apparent reason.
