China giving $1 billion to Bangladesh Air Force to buy Chengdu J-10B, Y-20 heavy lift transport aircraft and many more. A Russian blog and East Pendulum twitter account tweeted that Bangladesh and China negotiating each-other for $1 bn arms deal almost all of which is related to aircrafts. China offered 16 Chengdu J-10B, 1 Xian Y-20 heavy lift military transport aircraft, 1 Shaanxi KJ-200 AEW&C aircraft, and 7 K-8W Karakorum intermediate jet trainer aircrafts to Bangladesh Air Force.
China trying to counter india’s $500 million loan to Bangladesh to buy Russian weapons. It is now prestige issue for Beijing to maintain high-ground regarding Dhaka. Delhi offered military training, arms and other supports during indian defense minister monohor porikar’s Dhaka visit, which Bangladesh Armed Forces rejected then.

Still this is a rumor, though, experts believe that what is rumored regarding China-Bangladesh military dealings is true. Because previously Bangladesh bought Chinese fighter trainers to train BAF’s combat pilots. Many Bangladeshi pilots got training in China for flying J-10 fighter jets. And this is expected for many days that BAF would buy Chengdu J-10B jets in some number.

This is a pitch for Bangladesh, if they acquire all these they will definitely be catching up against the Indians. but why would they need J-10Bs if they are to acquire SU-30SMEs?

SU-30SMEs are part of Bangladesh's MRCA competition to help bolster their air force. J-10Bs will be acquired for BAF to counter the Myanmarese air force JF-17s. Myanmar also ordered 6 SU-30SMEs, and Russia is pushing Bangladesh to acquire MiG-35s over SU-30SMEs

This is a countermove so China could block India for increasing, or starting a defense agreement with Bangladesh in which it was very successful. Bangladesh I know is actually going to acquire the J-10Bs but when the deliveries start is another issue. China keeps pushing these major sales to Bangladesh like modernizing 2 Type 053H3 Frigates as gap fillers for the Bengali Navy.
what others do not see behind these deals is China or India will offer Myanmar a system to counter these which is why there is a large arms race between India, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

China is an economic super power and by supplying them this type of loan for equipment shows you they want to stay within Bangladesh's market, the only real market that India has that they can supply to is Vietnam, but even I have heard that Vietnam does not know whether they should acquire BrahMos or not due to the fact they have P-800s and rumors say they are negotiating with Russia for a production line for the P-800 within Vietnam.
