What to read next


  1. 1


    Standardisation of platforms should be a priority.When the IL-76 is now available in new upgraded form and at v.affordable cost,it should be the platform for tankers,AWACS,AEW aircraft and heavylift transports now that the C-17 is out of production. The Airbus and other western options are far more expensive,why they’ve repeatedly been shot downby the MOD.In a time of great financial stress,with around 80% deficit, cost-effectiveness should be the way to go.
    Leasing is an option but of what type? Here againmore of types in service makes it easier to operate,etc.

  2. 2


    Kalyani, TATA and OFB have made truck mounted 155 mm artillery.
    Kalyani has also made lighweight LCV mounted 105 mm gun.

    What is the bureaucracy that is stopping from these being tested ? Has Indian army and DRDO made available firing ranges available to local manufacturers of arms ?
    When will this policy be announced ?

  3. 3


    As pointed out at other defence fora, does this mean that Gripen will be included in the ban list, because its equal to Tejas MWF ?

    Does this mean that Patriot or THAAD will be included in the list because we already possess the AAD/PAD ?

    Does this mean that nuclear powered submarines will be included because we already have the Arihant ?
