Ukrainian hardware on India's Sukhoi Su-30 MKI aircrafts

The document, below, lists out the numerous hardware sub-systems for the Indian Air Force's [IAF] Russian-origin Sukhoi Su-30 MKI aircraft that must/could be sourced from Ukraine. Such a situation arose as a result of the fallout of breakup of erstwhile Soviet Union that endowed the newly created Ukraine with a robust military industrial infrastructure within its territory that was setup during the Soviet period.

The Ukrainian state-owned SpetsTechnoExport, that has  made available this document, is the nodal agency for undertaking any trade with Ukraine on matters of military hardware.

Incidentally, the only other office they have outside their own country is in India.
