In the USA, the Russian MiG-35 fighter was unexpectedly praised and advised India to buy it.

A rather controversial article by the American military publication “Military Watch”, in which the Russian fighter of the 4 ++ MiG-35 generation was not only praised, but also called the only combat aircraft that India should acquire in the near future, caused a lot of questions. In fact, the United States recognized the superiority of the Russian combat vehicle over the F-21, believing that if New Delhi really makes a deal with Russia to acquire MiG-35 fighters, then this will be the best choice in terms of quality and cost.

“After the confrontation between the Indian and Chinese military in the Galvan valley in the Ladakh region of the Himalayas in June 2020, India needs to seriously think about buying the Russian MiG-35. China has not yet deployed the latest fifth-generation J-20 combat vehicles at the Indian borders. Beijing limited itself to the transfer of J-16 fighters to the border, which are the modernization of the Su-30MKK, previously delivered by Russia. They surpass the MiG-29UPG and Su-30MKI in their performance characteristics and operational qualities, so the Indians were in a difficult position. Now India feels an urgent need for a new generation of aircraft, and the MiG-35 is well suited for this role. MiG-35 is a 4 ++ generation fighter that will allow to close the technological gap with China ”- cites information, citing the Military Watch, the Russian edition of Reporter.

The fifth-generation Russian fighter is indeed a highly efficient combat vehicle, the acquisition of which India was thinking about, however, has not yet made a final decision.
