The plane was on a sortie with Russian crew members from the aircraft manufacturing company on board. The Navy had sent its aircraft to Russia for a mid-life upgrade and overhaul. The navy plane landed at Zhukovsky Airfield outside Moscow after a chassis failure, according to Russia's RT network.
The navy said authorities are assessing the extent of damage to the aircraft.
India and Russia recently agreed to strengthen bilateral defence cooperation when Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman visited Russia to attend the VII Moscow Conference on International Security.
India has been pressing Russia to adopt a liberal approach in sharing technology for components of major defence platforms as it was critical to keep them in operational readiness. Majority of India's weapon systems are of Russian origin.
