NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India and Russia have agreed to speed work on a fifth-generation military aircraft, Indian officials said on Thursday, in a vote of confidence in an old defense partner days before U.S. President Barack Obama arrives to advance ties.
India and Russia signed a deal in 2010 to jointly develop and produce a stealth jet for both their militaries, as well as third countries, in what India said at the time would become the biggest defense program in its history.
