Russia, India to work jointly on new aircraft
font size    

India and Russia will jointly design a multifunctional cargo plane and a fifth-generation fighter jet as part of their plans to strengthen military cooperation, visiting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Moscow Tuesday.

Projects in the design and production of next-generation military hardware are a goal of Indian-Russian cooperation, Singh said after talks with President Vladimir Putin in the Russian capital.

"India and Russia have singled out two projects: a multifunctional cargo plane and a fifth-generation fighter jet," he said.

Also on Tuesday, Russia and India signed an agreement on the protection of intellectual property in the defense industry, a deal that came as the two nations are trying to build strong military links.

Russia is No. 1 supplier of arms to India, with about 40 percent of its arms exports going to the South Asian nation. India says its weapons contracts with Russia have totaled 9 billion US dollars in value since 1998.

Russia and India held a joint military exercise in October.
