About those Su-30s weren't you guys produced them so poorly they all crashing over the place ?
10 lost to crashes
4 lost to crashes
I'm not seeing it. And that's not even counting the flight hours logged/per year which is much higher than what a RD93-equipped jet can reasonably manage.
AL-31FP TBO: ~1500 hrs
RD-93 TBO: ~700 hrs
And just to compare:
5 lost to crashes
So, again - I don't know where you're seeing it that the HAL-built Su-30MKIs are "so poorly produced". Sounds like hot gas, frankly.
JF-17 is produced cooperatively by china and pakistan using both Pakistani and chinese avionics
What exactly are the Pakistani avionics?
I can provide you a whole list of Indian equipment that's on the Su-30MKI, and I can say with reasonable confidence that it's probably way longer than your list. But nobody calls MKI an Indian jet or Indo-Russian jet. It's a Russian jet license-built in India, that's it.
Comparing the JF-17 program with LCA Tejas is not logically correct at all. The LCA is not a foreign design or IPR that India is producing. JF17 is a Chinese design called FC-1 Xiaolong. The Pakistani industry has not initiated or delivered any indigenously-designed fighter jet program, period.
Heck, there's not even a Helicopter program which is way simpler.
