    Russia could agree on a deal to start assembling Sukhoi Superjet 100 and Irkut MS-21 passenger jets in India, an official at the Russian Economic Development Ministry said Friday.

    Russia is considering a number of projects to promote the country’s airliners “with the possibility of cooperating in their production,” said Yevgeny Popov, who heads the ministry’s department of Asia and Africa, adding that this concerns both the Sukhoi Superjet 100, now being built in Russia, and the next-generation Irkut MS-21, due to enter production in a few years.

    They will not admit this but we will actually send them parts of airframe, avionics, antennas,etc. We do it with their SU 30 KMs and the F18 SH of USA.

    The Superjet 100 is a medium-haul passenger aircraft capable of carrying 75-95 passengers developed by the Sukhoi Corporation.


    The MS-21 is a family of twin-engine jet airliners still under development by the Irkut and the Yakovlev design bureau, part of
    Russia's United Aircraft Corporation. It has a capacity of 150-212 passengers.

    Boeing outsources manufacturing of components to India. These components find their
    way into many frontline US combat aircraft.

    The Gun Bay Doors (GBDs) of F/A-18E/F Super Hornet are made here. The newer EA-18G Growler
    electronic warfare fighter has many cockpit components manufactured in India -

    Several prominent airliners like those from Boeing & Airbus as well as regional jets from Embraer
    have lots of made in India components. That's just globalization of production department.

    However, India also writes many flight-control software that runs major Boeing/Airbus planes.
