Russia and India are in discussion on modernization of Su-30MKI fighter jet, deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Konstantin Biryulin told Russia's TASS news agency on Monday.
The modernisation package includes onboard communication and data transfer systems, as well as radar equipment of Su-30MKI fighter jets.
Biryulin, who heads the Russian delegation to the show, said at the opening of Le Bourget Paris Air Show 2015 that "talks are underway with Indian partners on conducting a comprehensive modernisation of Su-30MKI jets which were first supplied (to India) around 20 years ago."
Russia's participation in Le Bourget Paris Air Show 2015 scheduled for June 15-21 has decreased insignificantly despite the uneasy political situation, Biryulin told TASS last week.
"We still consider Paris Air Show to be a promising exhibition platform for maintaining and developing dialogue with our partners from Europe and other regions in the world," he added.
"In the process of preparing for the show we did not face any counteraction or restrictions on forming our exhibition. Though this year the emphasis was made on showcasing our capabilities in designing civil aviation for understandable reasons, the Russian exhibition will also be informative in terms of presenting modern combat aviation," the delegation head added.
