Now it is time for the C-17 to prove itself as a paisa vasool investment.

MoD should really consider buying RO desalination systems from the USN. Even if one puts those in a few ships from the inactive fleet – they would make a major difference in this kind of situation.

In the Iraq War US Army engineers laid a pipeline that ran fuel and water all the way to the FEBA as the armor units cut they way at high speed to Baghdad.

That kind of technology would be very useful in the present situation.

regarding the availability issue raised by Timbaktoo. The An-32 and Il-76 cost less up front compared to the C130 or C17. People at ministry get sticker shock when they see the price of the a/c. That is why IAF used to have the price of the a/c paunted on the side. What people don't realize is whether you pay up front now or pay in availability problems later … you still pay. The notion of a holistic cost calculation has not gained ground in the ministry yet. Also I feel sometimes the discussions get to narrowly focused on the wartime… Read more »
