A military board is established to find out the reasons behind the crash of Indian fighter jet, Defence spokesperson LT Col Pande told.
Russian made Sukhoi 30 fighter Jets are major assets of Indian Air force’s fighter fleet and Indian Air force is totally relying on them with 242 SU-30MKI’s in service. Because Mig 29, Mig 21,and home made Tejas are lacking in the capabilities against India’s biggest rival Pakistan and its Air force which is using advance F16, and home made JF 17 Thunder fighter jets.
