Russian su-35 and MiG-35 have a good opportunity on paper but not in reality, says The National Interest.

In a publication of the American magazine discusses the reasons why India cut military-technical cooperation with Russia in favor of the US and the EU. The publication notes that India is in search of a twin-engine fighter, and as candidates are considered American F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Eurofighter Typhoon, French Rafale and the Russian su-35 or MiG-35.

“The Russian fighters offer good results on paper, but India disappointed with poor after-sales support and frequent disruptions most of the Russian equipment, including the MiG-29 and su-30MKI”, — writes the edition.

In The National Interest also noted that Indian officials are becoming increasingly disillusioned at su-57, publicly complaining about a low-power motors, low stealth fighter and “the lack of transparency as to what is behind these problems.”

The publication suggests that the F-35 or F/A-18E/F Super Hornet has a good chance of becoming “the next superweapon of the Indian air force”.

In February 2018, The National Interest reported that the pilots of the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II U.S. air force has little chance to stand against su-35 in close combat — the publication has named a Russian fighter jet, “probably the best ever produced by machine” to fight in the line of sight. The experts noted that to approach the us planes have the advantage in stealth technology low radioamatori.

The purchased aircraft of the Russian air force (two contracts, a total of 98 cars). Also the fighter version of the su-35СК was sold to China (24 aircraft, the first passed in December 2016).
