Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

I am violently opposed to any frigate import for the navy. As it is not adding any jobs in India. Nor do we know for sure if it can accept mfstr. As p 17a was delayed due to a redesign of the base p17 took time. If we choose to build base model p 17. Maybe those could be updated to p17a configuratio...

Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

The ability to roll steel may be an issue but they are still able to forge composite armour for tanks. Why not use that to armour ship's. To build modern day battle ships. The thing is, that the battle ships was obsolete the moment Roma was sunk. As a single weapon had the potential to sink a battle...

See my problem with the mig 29 demand is that the IAF will not provide it due to high demand for the 29 by the IAF itself. The alternative options is to establish a degree or reliability in a flying platform. Using a 4 engine transport plane. Then move it to Tejas.

Re: Kaveri & aero-engine discussion

Why the obsession with mig 29. Port it to one of the earliest Tejas prototype and test fly it. If the engine has demonstrated reliability on the test bench. It should perform ok when mounted in the Tejas.

Just make sure that ejection seat works.
