    adm arun has a rare gift of eloquence. a perfectly balanced column which celebrates the triumphs and at the same time cautions on the long road ahead. wish we had such people still in service. shano varun.

    good reading! kindly request admiral arun prakash to also give some insights into the sagarika missile program. how much naval participation is there, etc. also he can be in a great position to enlighten all of us on the mig-29k squadron which, as per information, will be coming very soon.

    Sir,

    How serious could be the modifications which might be necessary on Arihant? We are all very eager to be assured of the success of the programme. The whole country is supporting it.

    could not agree more with admiral. with 700 odd km range missile, the arihant might as well be a harbour tug.

    I think the Admiral has made a good point of the synergy between the DRDO, the Navy and the DAE;rarely seen in projects involving the army or to a certain extent the airforce.The navy has always pushed for indigenisation and also has walked the talk in cooperating with the defence labs, whereas the army has always been at loggerheads whether it is requirements or specifications of their systems.Pulling specifications off janes defence weekly and trying to shove it down the labs' throat is not the way to go as the navy has successfully demonstrated.

    Just what one would expect, including 'me Tarzan you Jane bit aimed at the sister services'. It is about time that senior services officers learn to let the obvious speak for itself rather than annoy others in a school boyish manner. But then, Services do have a large dose of that. I should know-having worn the white uniform and before that Khakhi.

    We don't have longer range ballistic missiles (8000 km)to reach Beijing – in land based/ sub launched ( can try in Acula 2), so why can't india get at least for interim purpose a good volume of these missiles from russia in secret.

    Sir, isnt it sad that we who are unable to maintain our conventional subs (ridiculous Ops availability in both the fronts)and keep on projecting optimum force strength to our big bosses will end up grounding the SSN prety soon after its commissioning and again start a story of fudged figures and silly statistics to build castles of our sword strength in thin air…..I mean water!!!…….Being eloquent is good…being truthful better. Please impress upon our top bosses they might pay heed to you…..and in turn do some good to this wonderful NATION of ours.

    All I can say with certainity that China has no nuclear propelled submarines, though they claim to have these. They also have no aircraft carrier. The genuine hit range of India's missiles is a well guarded secret.

    A bit OT but the japanese had Submarine Aircraft carriers in WW2 as in the video here:

    Why is it a bad idea today? Isn't it safer than the easy target large aircraft carriers?
