IAF should procure 40 Russian Su-57E fighters to counter Pakistan’s acquisition of Chinese J-31 5th generation stealth aircraft: Experts

In the ever-evolving landscape of aerial warfare, the Pakistan Air Force Chief’s announcement regarding the imminent acquisition of the J-31 5th generation stealth aircraft has raised strategic concerns. The groundwork for integrating this advanced aircraft into their fleet by 2029 is underway, contrasting with the current status of India’s indigenous Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) program awaiting CCS approval and unlikely to be inducted before 2030.

A consortium of experts contends that the Indian Air Force cannot afford to wait for the AMCA’s induction and should consider procuring two squadrons of the Russian Su-57 as an interim solution. The Su-57, having proven its mettle in combat situations in Ukraine and Syria, presents a viable countermeasure. Simultaneously, experts advocate for an acceleration of the AMCA project through increased funding, larger teams, and forging foreign partnerships for the Transfer of Technologies.

This strategic imperative arises from the urgency posed by Pakistan’s advancements in stealth technology. The deployment of the J-31, a 5th generation stealth aircraft, demands a proactive response from the Indian Air Force to maintain regional air superiority.

In conclusion, the strategic landscape demands a calibrated response to Pakistan’s advancements in stealth aircraft technology. The procurement of Russian Su-57E and the expeditious advancement of the AMCA program emerge as complementary measures. This nuanced approach, combining burstiness in interim solutions with a long-term vision, positions the Indian Air Force strategically to maintain its air superiority in the region.
