Nitin "Call me JC"
, you are entitled to your pedagogic mind and views, as I am entitled to mine. I am WELL aware of TATA and its dealings with DRDO and fortunatly they remain a sideline, at best, on thier balance sheet. Ratan Tata isnt foolish enough to back a substantial part of his fortune and reputation on the DRDO.
"Suresh P" (rhymes with something, I wonder what
) please dont be more stupid- your first claim was that TATA was not associating with DRDO, in fact they have been doing so for long & will continue to do so. I doubt whether you are aware of anything regarding DRDO and TATAs dealings, given this forum will be discussing several of those projects in the future years.
Tata has also got order worth hundreds of crores for the Pinaka which is a recurring one so please...try your farce on someone who cant look through your drivel. Of course you are entitled to your views- but if your "views" are uninformed ranting, then be well prepared to have someone respond gently in turn.
Having spoken to TATA reps but recently, I am well aware of their future plans which include working with DRDO which has made the SED its preferred partner (and which SED regards as a good business opportunity) and several of TATAs companies dont even openly acknowledge their work for PR/ Sensitivity reasons.
When "defence" is actually "liberalised" from the dead clawing grasp of the failing PSU's, like the DRDO, then it we may see Tatas come into thier own in military manufacture.
Its amusing to see you wear your ignorance on your sleeve so openly. The Tatas have applied for a Raksha Udyog Ratna license and are well in line to be one of the key defence conglomerates in India along with L&T. And also that TATA SED has been a preferred partner for several mulimillion $ deals as of recently..simply put dear feller, you are again talking out of your hat. Nor is DRDO a PSU. Strike two.
Strike three- which just goes to show how completely and totally clueless you are. Kakkaji was speaking of the Arjun being manufactured by DRDO. A decision which for political reasons went to the lethargic OFB. Considering the quantum of investment and my own discussions on the topic, TATA would have given its eye teeth to have got the same..pure business sense..but I dont think you know about L&T's plans either, do you?
By the way Nitin I am still reeling from your accounts a year ago about the Kaveri engine, the best thing since sliced bread. Its toasted up quite nice and tasted scrumpcious.
This is exactly why I think Suresh P (
) that you share some esteemable characteristics with your friends across the border. The need to invent mythical martial victories, misattributing claims and then passing it off for years as "Fact".
Perhaps its why you claim to understand them so well, eh?
Fact: I was the one to point out a year back, about the Kaveris technical issues, as well as key manpower issues. I also shared that information with certain informed members of BR at the time. I regret to say you wont be joining that list anytime soon.
Its best that you stick to cursing DRDO and ISRO (ah how can we forget that) - and bragging about how you single handedly could develop the Kaveri with a few "students" as backup. I suggest sir, that you apply for a single man stall at AeroIndia, with a spinning wheel in front- the hot air there alone will meet most of Bangalores coming energy requirements.
