America may offer F-35 fighter jets if India drops its S-400 deal with Russia

America may offer F-35 fighter jets if India drops its S-400 deal with Russia

The United States has been pressuring India ever since India signed an agreement to purchase the S-400 air defense system from Russia. Furthermore, it has now been learned that the U.S. might even go as far as to offer the multi-role fifth generation F-35 fighter jet in an effort to convince New Delhi to drop the five and a half billion dollar deal it signed with Moscow last year.

The F-35 is perhaps the most advanced fighter jet in the world and most experts agree that it has no rival.

The United States and India have had several trade agreements and have even cooperated on the sharing of high technology. But senior officials in Washington D.C. have said that India’s deal with Russia could pose obstacles for any future cooperation with the United States. These decisions by Washington are part of the CAATSA (Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act). Under this Act, the United States has threatened as well as imposed sanctions on countries that have had dealings or trade agreements of various kinds with countries that have been deemed a threat to American interests, namely Russia, North Korea, etc.

The U.S. has already offered its NASAMS II (National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System) for protection against ballistic missiles to India. Moreover, in an effort to lure India away from Russian armaments, the US has also put its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and Patriot Advance Capability (PAC-3) on the table. These are some of the most highly advanced weapons platforms in the world that currently may not have any rivals.

Ever since Donald Trump took office, the United States has taken a harsher stand on its enemies and countries that make deals with those enemies.
