IAF Mi-35E in Aggressor colours

This unusually-coloured bird simulated an "aggressor" for two conventionally painted Hinds to take down. Note missing chin gun, and no EO pod, suggesting that this is one of the few IAF Hinds not sporting the IAI upgrade package. This heli was part of the UN peacekeeping mission in the Congo, and has been photographed before in 2003.

Fascinating jet!
Zvezda TV has a nice video on the MiG-31 and the team that operate it
Sadly no open source videos on the IAF "Garuda" MiG-25R and her crew

After two massively negative years of growth it will be interesting to see India's next defence budget, if there is an increase in real terms or not.
OT:Yes, will be tough for acquisitions.There maybe a setback by a few years for foreign imports (Global Buy/Global Buy and Make items in MoD terms)
