This was a bold thinking and and great achievement to have these AWACS.This gives the air command as well as naval and ground command actual picture of the whole scenario in war.It has been unwritten policy that third of all resources would be Russian , third would be western and third would be indigenous.I feel 6 more planes should be worked out on Airbus or Boeing platform. We also need in addition at-least 15 platforms on Embraer platform. I strongly feel we need to buy at least 20 air to air refeulers and develop Tejas MK2 as quickly as possible… Read more »

May be it's my eyes, but ever since I looked at this airframe for the first time, it just seems that the airframe is a bit of an overkill for the platform it supports. It looks like the Russians use the airframe that was sitting around to mount the radar… of course a lot more science went into this selection than the oversimplied version I gave, but unfortunately that is the impression I am left with every time I look at these pictures…. Any way, still a very useful platform and no doubt about it.
