◆After India opts out, Russia orders fifth- generation Sukhoi-57s

【New Delhi】In a reminder of what the Indian Air Force (IAF) is missing, the Russian Air Force (RAF) has placed its first order of the Sukhoi-57, the Russian fifth-generation fighter that New Delhi recently decided not to co-develop and co-manufacture with Sukhoi.
 “The first contract for 12 [Sukhoi-57] aircraft will be signed soon, and the deliveries under this contract will begin shortly,” said Russian Deputy Defence Minister Alexey Krivoruchko on June 30, according to Russia’s Sputnik News.

【New Delhi】While Indian leaders and strategists claim a pre-eminent role in the Indian Ocean Region and portray the Indian Navy as the key guarantor of security in these waters, it remains unclear whether the hard power capability exists for discharging such a role.
