    24 are not enough . With Kirans virtually over lifewise, we need another 100 at least – By the time the MMRCA comes through , our training establishments should be ready.

    If technically feasible we should either stabilise the production of Hawk or aim for Yak 130 or M 349 for the next generation trainers and use other versions of these planes for building light attack capabilities . The Govt. should ignore HAL and invite the Tatas to enter the military aviation sector. Imagine 7 to 10 squadrons of M 349 /Yak /Hawk 200 light attack squadrons assisting our forces on both the fronts and supplementing the MMRCA and the SU's .

    HAL should be semi-privatized. (With private sector being majority stake holder)
    Government owned etities are inefficient in general but not always. Also, private sector can manipulate and pressure governments to buy their products even if they are un-necessary for national defense. Prime examples being F-22, VH-71 etc.
    On one extreme there is DRDO- government run, unreliable and next to just pathetic organization. On the other side, there are likes of Lockheed Martin and Boeing – efficient but selfish and very expensive on national economy. What is ideal is a compromise somewhere in between.

    Agree, semi-privatisation of HAL, DRDO would work.. Employees at these places work hard, but hardly work.
