You are a f_c_ed up guy. What do u have to show for contributing to our country? If better, less or even 10% of the DRDO director then say your piece respectfully. No need to belittle a man who has devoted his life to contributing to our national development

A lot of hopes rest on the proven scientific acumen and administrative capabilities of the new DRDO Chief. Hopefully senior leadership across the board will be charged with the enthusiasms that Dr Chander is displaying. Just some points on what Dr. Chander said. "If I'm making an LCA, I have to design the computer, the actuators, practically everything in-house. But once this capability comes to industry, 50% of my load gets transferred to industry. I can find a value engineered product coming from industry. Time cycles will come down, quality will go up." My doubt is – hasn't HAL been… Read more »

Firstly, I salute Dr. Avinash Chander. He is matching his words with Action, what with the frenzied pace of testing of the Tejas. I'm fully confident, that under his able leadership, the Tejas will be delivered to the IAF very soon. It shall also serve the IAF for many decades to come. ———– Mr. Vijender Thakur, Dr. Chander said that the actuators, computers etc. have to be designed in-house. HAL has all these years been only assembling these components, that are imported. It merely "tightened the screws" of these equipment onto aircraft, which are license-made too. DRDO has, for the… Read more »

"Soon" is the favorite word of DRDO.

You are right sir, lots of projects are in the verge of completion now. Our new DRDO chief's confidence is good. Out of all the projects LCA Tejas and Arjun MK2 are the ones people are looking very closely.

Talk is cheap, Proof is in the pudding.

Deliver on the much maligned and the almost doomed Arjun and Tejas apart from the myriad of other projects namely Nag, Astra, INSAS etc, etc….

More than delivery of the much delayed projects where the end product seems to be no longer relevant to current requirements and objectives, the need of the hour is to stop the systemic rot and undertake the much desired structural reforms at DRDO

Of course the backlog of products due to enter service has reached unprecedented levels. But is this something to boast about?

It is the armed forces that actually create a backlog while inducting indigenous weapons. The Arjun tank has proven itself repeatedly against the Russian T-90 tanks. Yet, only 248 Arjuns have been ordered so far. Why ? I think there is systemic corruption within the Army (not a surprise given that a former Air Chief has been accused of corruption too). The INSAS served us very well during the Kargil war. Even the Nepali soldiers in Kargil were armed with INSAS. True, it met with some problems, but which rifle in the world hasn't had problems ? Just Google, "M-16… Read more »

Take a look at the number of former Armed Forces chiefs who have been not exactly lily white…and the truth emerges…take a look at Sareen and the Su-30 deal and how he behaved with his fellow officers, Tyagi and the Barak issue..and later AW choppers…and it becomes clear is daal main sab kaale hain..

@Abhiman Former Army Chief doesn't knows even his date of birth. He dragged the Govt to the court like a student who is poor in studies. DRDO has given the nation state of the art weapons systems like Arjun, Agni, Tejas etc. Typhoon, F35 etc. are also facing teething problems inspite of the pedigree of those building them. After the foolish testing of Atom Bombs DRDO faced severe sanctions. In spite of all the hurdles it has done a fantastic job. It seems our armed forces and netas are extremely reluctant to buy indigenous products as they do not yield… Read more »

On abhiman's statement of "If they can fly those old doddering MiG-21s, "…

This just proved that the author has no clue of what he is talking of. Thus the rest i.e lip service for DRDO falls in place

Mr. Rustam, you can easily compare the specs of the latest MiG-21s, with those of the Tejas that's still in testing.

The Tejas wins hands down and MiG-21 loses, pants down.

Your comment is no different from the utterly silly comment of former Air-Chief, Mr. Naik, that the Tejas is a MiG-21++. Someone ought to tell him Tejas is more of a Gripen C/D and an F-16 C/D.

I guess the brochure boys of DRDO are doing rounds on some blogs..yet at the cost of some reposting..thus the Mig 21 bashing …but the bashing only shows that the bashers of mIG 21 do not know the story or having put blinds on their eyes, think they can hoodwink the rest of the world…after all DRDO and its brochures have to justify their jobs… To give a prelude to the 21 story In 1997 DRDO halted the Army's requirement of Gun locating radar… DRDO claimed that they were on the verge of success in the field.Thus the IA was… Read more »

Mr. Rustom, the procurement procedures of the Indian Armed forces is in tatters (and has been for most of its history). Regarding WLRs, I know you're referring to Gen. Mallik's controversial statement that the Indian toll during Kargil would've been lower, but for DRDO. The Indian Army was trying very hard to import WLRs even before the Kargil war. An RFP issued in 1995 for WLRs was replied by only one American company; and that too did not meet the Army's specifications. In 1998, negotiations were begun again with the US for WLRs, but after the nuke tests the same… Read more »
