    Time for the services to be fully on board, deeply committed and absolutely clear about the mandate and governance.

    It is with a sense of amusement that one sees Navy committing to 80 LCAs while IAF dithers about with 20. Let the radar be a different story from get go.

    I think these are three most important components under buildin DRDO:
    The Kaveri Engine
    THE AEsA radar
    The MBT Arjun engine

    All three of above can benefit hugely with private participation.

    In May 2008, licensed production of the Mi-17 started in China with production being led by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant JSC and the Sichuan Lantian Helicopter Company Limited in Chengdu, Sichuan province. The plant had built 20 helicopters in 2008, using Russian Ulan-Ude-supplied kits. The production is expected to reach 80 helicopters per year eventually. The variants to be built by Lantian will include Mi-171, Mi-17V5, and Mi-17V7.
