MiG-35 turned down by India to be used by Russian armed forces

The Russian aircraft bid for the USD 10 billion Indian tender for 126 fighter aircraft but was not shortlisted.

Isaikin refused to comment on possible reasons for the tender committee's decision but recalled that "the organisers of the tender set forth strict requirements", Itar-Tass reported.
"A possible reason may be that some of the components used in the MiG-35 - instruments and armaments - which we installed on the plane did not pass state testing," he said.

"The MiG-35 is an excellent plane and it will find its use in the Russian Armed Force," Isaikin added.
