Like Ramana Garu said earlier, it was written in one of the articles that TD1/2 and PV1 could accommodate Kaveri, PV1 seems to be the best candidate given TD1/2 have become showpieces

This reminds me of the hammer and nail thingie, IAF has only one solution put their man on top ... to do wh...

Learned beepul one thing that I never understood is if we are able to build 700 MW reactors why not proliferate them instead of buying from elsewhere ? Is it the fuel guarantee thing or shivalik syndrome or something else here at play ?

Consider this at today's dollar price it is 68 million, cost of a 404 and the radar is about 8-10million. The rest of the 58 million should theoretically stay within the count...
