Re: India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector

I remember some members were so proud that supplying these spare part by HAL is no ordinary feat. now that HAL has lost even that prestige, I wonder what will be next.

just one word describes it - "PATHETIC", Govt. should seriously start a surgical disinvestment of HAL !

WOW, what a statement.

if we don't invest in FGFA, what will be our options
1) invest ONLY in AMCA, its definitely gonna take 10 - 15 years or may be 20 years before FOC. Can we wait for that long when Chinese are fielding J 20?
2) buy F 35?
3) or acquire anti stealth technology?
