BANGALORE, February 18. /TASS/. Russia and India are developing an advanced joint multi-role military and transport aircraft MTA, the head of the Russian delegation at 10th international aviation and space exhibition Aero India 2015 told journalists in Bangalore on Wednesday.
"During the fulfillment of the project on the joint development of the multi-purpose transport aircraft, the Russian and Indian engineers completed the aircraft’s design feasibility phase," Anatoly Punchuk said.
The results of the aircraft’s preliminary design study are "in the final stage of being assessed by India’s Air Force," he told journalists at India’s main defense and civil-aviation event, which runs through February 20.
Russia and India have been cooperating fruitfully in the military-technical sphere. Since 1960, Russia has supplied to India arms and military equipment worth about $40 billion, Punchuk said.
