Why can't we put a Barak8 on the shaurya ? I remember reading it weighs around 300 kg. That would be 3 B 8's per shaurya.

Not just the MKI, all present and future IAF aircraft will be able to use the NIrbhay MK1. That would bring even bring low level penetrators like Jaguars into the equation. As per the poster even the LCA is a delivery vehicle.

Would it be possible for the IL76 to be a carrier for the Nirbhay ?

Shiv,

Wouldn't this thread be better of by deciding a time frame. I mean we can analyze the threats/challenges in 5 year period.
2010-2015:
2015-2020:
So on and so forth.

Based on the timeframe we can analyze and build scenarios based on open source information of enemy capabilities.

Cant see RuAF buying 250( or even 150) Su-30s nor this "game changer" being offered to too many 3rd parties.


Guess, atleast a part of that would be IAF order, 40 already ordered right ? We might also have this SU-30MKI Brahmos ordered in batches as usual.
