The Indian Air Force’s (IAF) iconic Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jets are getting a major upgrade! As confirmed by HAL CMD CB Ananthakrishnan, the project is on a fast track and divided into two phases, focusing on enhancing both offensive and defensive capabilities with a strong emphasis on indigenous technology.

The first phase prioritizes equipping the Su-30MKIs with cutting-edge avionics and radars, allowing for improved situational awareness, targeting accuracy, and overall mission effectiveness. Additionally, a brand-new Electronic Warfare System (EWS) will be integrated, providing advanced electronic countermeasures against enemy threats and communication disruption capabilities. To further boost air-to-air and air-to-ground combat prowess, indigenous Infra-Red Search and Track (IRST) systems will be installed, sharpening the jets’ targeting abilities in all-weather conditions.

The second phase dives into the flight control systems, ensuring precise maneuverability and enhanced handling even in demanding situations. This signifies a crucial step towards complete self-reliance, as several Russian-origin systems will be replaced with indigenous alternatives developed by Indian firms.

The project’s emphasis on indigenous technology serves multiple purposes. It fosters the growth of India’s domestic aerospace industry, reduces dependence on external sources, and enhances national security by ensuring control over critical technologies.

This two-phase upgrade not only modernizes the Su-30MKI fleet, but also paves the way for a more self-reliant Indian Air Force. The enhanced capabilities will strengthen India’s aerial defense capabilities and ensure its combat aircraft remain relevant in the face of evolving threats.
