Flight Refuelling of the UK is in talks with the Indian air force to supply Mk32 refuelling pods to give the air force's Sukhoi Su-30s a flight refuelling capability. The single pod would fit on the centreline pylon of the Sukhoi. Air force Jaguars could also perform buddy-buddy refuelling from the Su-27. The pod concept appeals to the Indian air force because it could be taken off the Su-30 and refitted to another airframe, such as the Ilyushin Il-76. India does not currently have an in-flight refuelling capability.
