Ulhas Joglekar cited The Hindu: <Russia to lease out AWACS to India: As
India begins its post-Kargil military modernisation, Russia has decided
to lease out its A-50 AWACS and TU-22 strategic bombers to New Delhi. >

A friend of mine, the only left-winger I know who keeps an eye on
military affairs, says that a few years back the Indian navy leased a
Russian nuclear submarine, which turned out to be so radioactive that it
was known by the crew as the 'Chernobyl'.
