    But that doesnt excuse the Navy, and our artwork in all the services are amaturish and bad, they should learn from the Americans, especially the old F-14 sqaudrons!

    Good find Shiv, you should bring it to the notice of the highest authority in the Navy. Such mistakes are ridiculous and shameful for something as big as Indian Navy.

    first anon: the Brahminy Kite found all over Konkan is also a dark rust coloured raptor with a white bald head. so should we all just assume that the shikra is any damn raptor found in india? i know my birds, brother. you should get some love for what’s right and wrong. the bird in the shikra is a bald eagle. and it were a krishnaeagle or whatever it is you’re referring to, does that make it closer to a shikra? you call that research!

    Another incident happened during the IA exhibition. The Army showed a Chinese AGTM as used by the Indian Army. This kind of errors must not happen with the Indian military. Precision is a must.

    Shiv, Why do you think it is a mistake??

    It is obvious that a American Eagle on Blue and white of ….you know who, is now the crest of our forces.

    The Shikra name is just to hoodwink you and aam janta.

    First two anons: the Krishna Eagle is officially called the Brahminy Kite (other names Red Backed Eagle). It is a Kite, not an eagle.

    This only goes to show what kind of material we have got in the services ,A mistake is a mistake which sould be corrected at the earliest .Shikra is a very strong & a beautiful hawk or rather handsome would be more appropriate . There is saying in UP , BHAINS KE AAGE BEEN BAJAI BHAINS KHADI PUGURAI , ( play been in front of a buffalow & it just stands around cudding ) –

    The Navy’s proclivity to goof up on symbolism is not new.For the uninitiated the Navy has changed its ensign design three times in the last decade.In the Services,there is little time for organisers to research and validate – most people involved in a new project are overoccupied.Therefore ‘cut-copy and paste’ is the norm.It is possible that the bald eagle was picked up from the net by some young officer and went up the hierarchy as a ‘great logo’ without anyone bothering to check its authenticity!

    Shiv,
    Take a look at this pic:

    Check out the wingtips in the above pic. They do match the INS crest. So where is the trouble?
