This 100 would be with automation and 3 shifts or are you saying that they don't plan for a 24x7 scenario ?

If is so easy to fly with Nirbhaya and make a video then it would be easy to shoot it down too. Any AAM would not miss it. So whats gives this missile the edge ?

Can anyone please let me know why mig/cheetak aircrafts are now outdated. What I want to know is, if their speed, t/w ratios and altitude ceiling were good in past it should be good now also. Only thing i think has changed is avionics and spares supply. So can't we just replace the avionics and buil...

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

Then the BAPL chiefs statment that we will meet our requirement first then look to supply for exports, doesn't make sense. We can ramp our capacity to do a parallel supply and that way will have better production facility when we need them in event of conflict.

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

hi !

Brahmos production rate is ~50/per year. Without any missile production idea/background that seems like a very low number. So what are the factor that prevent it being ramped up to say 1/day ? Is explosive difficult to produce or is it the avionics and structure ?

cheers

If RIL can tie up with Dassault for Rafale production, is it not feasible to have RIL or someone similar to have a second production line for Tejas to supplement slow rate of rate of production at HAL ?

Quite impossible. PA would disband and agree to becoming a secular democratic country before they are seen to buy Indian hardware. Besides, would you sell your best weapons to your enemy?

Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread

Presently everyone thinks that Arjun is very good tank and better than T-90 (except IA). So incase IA refuses to put any further orders and at the same time PA finds that Arjun is good enough to beat T-90 and decides to place a firm order of 200-500 Arjuns. Should CRVDE accept it.

just a thought.
