    Is that pic a photo-shop? The radar mount and adjoining roof fixtures look kinda smooth. Textures don't match.

    Very good.It is critical that as far as possible EW capabilities are designed,sourced and built in India itself.
    CABS works AEWS is a critical step in this direction.
    It is paramount that we induct as many indigenous products as quickly we can once they reach a minimal standard of acceptability.Only when domestic systems are deployed will we be able to evolve better and upgraded products.

    Hey Shiv,
    Please excuse for being Off Topic.
    If you have the time can u shed some light on why 4 of the original Su-30 Mks show parked at Trishul at Bareilly.Earlier almost all were seen lined up at Lohegaon.

    The story on the Sukhoi-30 MKI has been kind of sketchy. Would greatly appreciate a write up on the mighty Sukhoi seeing as it is THE fighter of the IAF at this time.
    Things like the procurement history,how many built by HAL, how many came as CKD,SKD kits, the differences between the various marks, the upgrade plans, the SUPER -30, future procurements all would be very interesting.

    Coming back to what I started with what happened to the original 18 some of them famously wearing the Tricolor?

    I am sure this is not an apples to apples comparison, but I ask if someone can confirm if 2008 contract to 2012 delivery is slower than that with C-130J. But, then again C-130J probably didn't have all the modifications that Embraer had to make to make a AEW&C version for India.

    ANyway, this is good news for India.

    Embraer have done their bit, now upto CABS to deliver. Hopefully the electronics integration goes smoothly without typical DRDO delays.

    Don't ask silly questions . . . How one can modified a plane without knowing the shape, size and weight of equipments e.g Radar? Although i'm nor a technical neither i am an expert but a 10th class student…so i could be wrong…

    The delivery of the aircraft creates a strong bond between India and Brazil. Congratulations and more power to India! This aircraft would be of great use by the air force.
