JF-17 will come with very cheap price tag only 15-20mil $ so you can have 3-4 Jf-17 with one Su-30 price tag..... you can add awacs to your inventory......... BD have less air space to defend , so adding SAMS along with JF-17 and radar systems + AWACS will give more security..... If BD concerns about India then SU-30 will not be useful....... gripen and JF-17 is more suitable for BD........

@Major Sahab, we cannot see the BGI photograph. Upload it again.
jet which we have no use for. Our defensive forces won't go for deep strike on enemy territory.
Second that bird is thoroughly mastered by IAF and they know inside out of that aircraft and we won't
ever get the source codes for the fighter from Russia(an indian ally) in any crisis situation. You
are opting for the same fighter , a possible adversary has thoroughly mastered!!! That's why I said
anything russian is not good. Even if I agree with you for the sake of argument, BAF is comfortable with the fuel eating Beast Mig29, but now you are throwing a new Sukoi system at them.
What will be the maintenance cost of these 2 types of jets? Awami dalals hypocrital policy of
buying Russian aerospace platforms is out of touch with reality and our militarie's threat
perception. We may be the only country in the world that is getting 90% of her arms from
china but ended up with a russian mig for the airforce. As I said there are other options available and if we have to buy any more russian , we should go for migs only. BAL's corruption on
Mig-29 scandal is well known and who knows what they have in mind when they talk about
be able to change it. They are already talking about $800 million worth of arms from russia alone,
and russians won't allow such a deal to slip through just because change of gov.
diversify our source and cash starved force like BAF should only maintain 1 type of fighter or
at best 2. Now is the time to get equipped with a new jet.
Russia will never side with BD in a BD-IND crisis. IND is one of the worlds biggest arms market
and russia won't lose it for puny BD. Its quite foolish to think that Russia will do otherwise.
Russian defence industry is too heavily connected with IND. As for keeping reations with russia,
you have to remember that it was soviet union then and they literally had given up BD to INDIA.
They considered us as an indian vasal and there were no use in maintaining such relations then.
Actually we only had a master-slave relations with IND only from 1971-1975 and were disconected from the outside world. Pres.ZIA policy of getting BD out of India's grip and moving closer
to the US and china would have fallen flat by trying to keep cosy relations with S.union.
