Good pictures, but what kind of planes are those? I'm not very familiar with Indian Air Force.

India acquired the Jaguar strike fighter to meet the IAF's Deep Penetration Strike Aircraft (DPSA) requirement to replace the Canberra and Hunter aircraft........... on July 1979 India Got the Frist batch of ex-RAF Jaguars Jaguars ........... These were followed by a batch of U.K. built Jaguars .................... simultaneouslyIndia begane Indegnious Production of Jaguars .......... HAL started Producing the aircraft, its powerplants, avionics and accessories in India.

Indi's No.6 Squadron was equipped with the Maritime Jaguar carrying the new generation Sea Eagle anti-ship sea-skimming missile.......... The Jaguar strike fighter was equipped also with Magic air-to-air missiles on unique overwing pylons, featured advanced nay-attack systems.

Is there any logistical nightmare for the IAF for having a mixture of Western and Soviets' aircrafts?

They are making Progress in that regard also ...... But Don't Expect them to Straight away come up with Some 5 th generatio Stuff ...... and it's not easy to Spare Money on the R&D and at the same time mantain the same level of Aircraft ......

India is Workig on LCA Tejas and MCA and China to of FC-1 , J-10 and a few others ...
