Anyone knows status of INS Visakhapatnam? Should be pretty much done by now and sea trials should start considering it's to be commissioned mid next year.

Is the expressway a straight line for most part? Bullet train route cannot have much turn and even in rare case of turn, the radius has to be very large.

We need fighters with true A2G capability such as the F-15E. IIRC during the MRCA saga, read somewhere that A2G was top priority rather than an ...

The planning process in the lead up to the 71 war, allowed us to develop politico-military goals, while 65 did not, because we did very little scenario planning in the run up to Pakistan's ope...
