Shows the kind of long term planning that goes on in the IAF. That was sarcasm!

'NO NAKED LIGHT' shouldn't it be 'NO NAKED FLAME'. Also within 100 meters is really unrealistic. Does show the rampant ignorance in the forces.

I feel India must buy 6 more C 130 J and also buy at least 4 V 22 osprey for relief work . It is good idea to buy few chinooks as well as upgrade few Mi 26 helos. Similarly develop LUH and mass produce ALH and fully develop the LAH as per the feedback from ah 64 apache helicopter. The need of the hour is fully develop IJT and produce it in sufficient numbers .

One more natural disaster and the price of the craft will have been recovered in the lives saved.

You got to be kidding ! TOT for 12 birds ?

I agree that a total of 18 would have been more appropriate – 9 at each hub ( Hindon & Panagarh). Keep 6 operational and hot and ready at all times and 3 more as stand-by.

I agree we need more of this bird considering the fact India never bother to build better transportation mean on NE border. To counter Chinese hostility we need more of this kind of plane. But recently China signed a deal to buy Su-35 fighter plane don't you think India should also ink the deal of buying Rafeal fighter plane. I agree Rafeal no match to Su-35 but India need such plane considering depleting Indian fighter planes.

I just can't understand why India is paying almost USD 1.06 Billion for just six aircrafts + supports, where as UAE. had paid just 1.3 Billion for 12 aircrafts + logistical support. Can anybody please explain why we are paying almost double of the price what UAE. is paying ?

The Indian defence Ministry should take up the issue of joint production of this aircraft. The US has already offered to help to produce the aircarft in India. India should replace all the An-32 and Avro with this kind of aircraft. IAF should shelve the plan of replacement of the Avro with ant other aircraft.
