    Just wondering… Admirals are Navy Officers, right?

    In my view, Mr. Tyagi’s statement that, “We are purchasing SPYDER…because DRDO let us down on Akash”, was inexplicable.

    Firstly, the Akash is NOT in the same class as Spyder, but most importantly when the former’s user-trials were already scheduled in Feb this year, the “hurry” to purchase Spyder is unclear.
    Also, there has been no further update on the supposed negotiations between IAF and DRDO to a consensus on the parameters for the Trishul’s user-trials. Almost 9 months after the defence minister and DRDO clarified (a day after the media “trumpeted” its demise) that the development work on Trishul is over and the IAF will negoiate with DRDO to map the parameters of the user-trials of the same. It may be earnestly hoped that the same haste with which the IAF signed the Spyder contract, is also shown by the IAF to arrange the trials of the Trishul also.

    Thank you.

    Shiv,

    Welcome to the real world. So now you are getting to see “other side” where murky deals are pushed through, local programs are used as a bali ka bakra for ad hoc imports. The Spyder comes with no tech transfer, will have no common stuff between IA, IAF, IN and is another case of IAFs import mania.

    Let me give u another example. In the 80’s Navy started working with DRDO to make electronic warfare items. Today, all Navys frontline ships, aircraft and even subs will carry EW items from Project sangraha. Now IAF similarly knew that its radars were getting long old and it would need to buy newer ones. It did nothing. It has asked for imports and has ordered what DRDO has already made. Now there are plans to make all the remaining types of radars. But in in the meanwhile the French and Israelis will laugh with 30-40 expensive systems imported from them.

    Three cheers to the Indian Navy for having the guts to believe in local manufacture. Compare and contrast to IAF, IA.

    Sheena behen,

    no matter what these bastards say.and by the way you anonymous bastards where is Shiv frustrated…if he cheated on Shaili , didn’t she on him by sleeping for jobs and promotions with Shivnath Thukral….

    that sounds like just the kind of thing to frustrate a normal human being..

    and you anon bastards Shiv was a topper in Maths

    and I bet he was also John Rambo but to get enlightened he gave up geeky math and Rambogiri and became a journalist, ie desi dork media

    and to be a good defence journo, its not just google, but a sound intelligence about everything and not just one thing

    Eggjactly, we have been trying to make shiv aroor understand that, but he is only googling and not using his brains. Hard, naa?

    Ramprakash Chautala (ab hum anonymous nahin hain)

    PS: How does one become journalist?

    Is there any exam? Or do u just get hired after doing 1 2 ka 4 degree in arts? just curious 🙂

    It was only now that I read the article in full compared to the earlier brief perusal.

    It has been conclusively proven that the Trishul and Akash were purposely neglected by the IAF in favour of the “immediately needed” Israeli missiles.

    This may only point to corruption within the IAF. The manner in which the IAF has delayed the user-trials of the Trishul and Akash for over a year respectively in stark contrast with the hurried purchase of the Israeli missile cannot mean anything but corruption and vested interests to halt and dither the induction of any indigenous developed system.

    Aided and abetted by the media, the IAF gets purposes to justify their actions in front of the public.

    Thank you.
