    Shiv,
    How do the indian equipments fare compared with the US ones ? More like what are the compromises india had to make in not accepting CISMOA equipments, e.g. the level and the strength of encryption etc ..?

    I ask again why do need the CISMOA ? what does it bring to the table ? So, Pakis can overtly divert their arms meant for War On Terror gifted by U.S. at friendship prices to push terror against India, and we pay top dollar and are being obliged (read as pressured) to sign LSA & CISMOA ? Why ?

    In other words, we have got a hyped up 737 at the price of several 747s. We have just got a shell. We might as well have purchased a 737 and installed these equipments at a fraction of the cost of P-8I.

    I am frankly surprised that you did not know about this!

    It has been publicly known for a long time, that as part of the offsets, Indian companies will provide features to the aircraft.

    BEL will be providing the comm equipment. why? simple. IN's data-links are developed by BEL. Why would India then bother about Link-16?

    Media should do more in depth research before jumping on to conclusions.

    Remember all this is designed by our DRDO and its establishment. They are known for excellence in innovation, cutting edge technology, timely project management and execution. Just think Tejas, Arjun…..

    The P-8 isn't even a appropriate platform for maritime patrol. The P-3 is much better for the job.

    Well, all the comments in regards to the plane being a hollow shell, etc have no idea what they are talking off. And there are quite a few.
    I can only assume that the Indian equipment will be the minimum as most equipment specifications are generally tailored to the enemy.
    The CISMOA, etc are rules & laws that favor the US. And unlike India which has a known apprehension for the US, all or most of the countries that purchase from them, SIGN IT.
