Indian Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has criticized the Indian Navy for buying Russian MiG-29K fighter jets without associated weapon package.
Indian Navy intends to use MiG-29K fighter jets as part of air wing of the INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier which is still being refit in the Russian shipyard.
Indian Navy had ordered MiG-29K fighter jets at cost of $526 million in March 2004. So far 11 MiG-29K fighter jets has been delivered by Russian aircraft manufacture.
CAG has criticized that "no item of armament contracted in March 2006 had been delivered as of October 2010 adversely affecting the operational capabilities of the aircraft."
Indian Comptroller and Auditor General has criticized the selection of the Beyond Visual Range (BVR) missile with "an unsatisfactory track record" with the Indian Air Force (IAF).
