The Indian Government is reportedly planning to increase the overhauling capacity of Sukhoi-30 fighter jets to 25 per year from the existing 12 aircraft.

State-owned aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) manufactures and overhauls the fighter jets at its Nashik facility in the state of Maharashtra.

Indian Minister of State for Defence Subash Bhamre was quoted by The Times of India as saying: “The Ministry of Defence has plans to increase the overhauling capacity of Sukhoi 30 up to 25 aircraft a year in the future.”

Citing sources at HAL, the publication reported that overhauling increases the lifespan of Sukhoi-30 aircraft by an additional ten years from the original ten years or 1,000 flying hours. Read More
