Re: Indian Military Helicopters

The extent of pimping for Russian military hardware that happens in BRF forums by a few is outrageous. Almost every post, however small, on Dhruv, Tejas, Insead, submarines is followed by at least one post dissing the Indian stuff and two more posts plugging the Russian Maal!

And a major reason for this we lack in skilled people. THis 'body-shopping' and eyetee-ytee jobs that are mocked by many supp...
