BBC News - Russia shows off Sukhoi T-50 stealth fighter (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14564311)

Sukhoi says the T-50s features will include all-weather capability, ability to use a take-off strip of just 300 to 400 metres (yards), capacity for sustained supersonic flight through repeated in-flight refuelling, and ability to attack air and ground targets simultaneously.

However, some analysts have previously denied the jet represents a great leap forward.

Hardly a leap in reverse.

Are we still sending money to India?

If, by 'we', you mean the British, then yes you are, to the extent of 280 million a year. Andrew Mitchell, the Secretary of State for International Development is to make sure though that all of the British tax payer's money will be devoted to the poorest regions. He has decided that poor Indians should not be penalised because of their government's spending priorities. The correlation between the decisions of his government and the irony of his statements escapes him perhaps?
