Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020

Interesting thing going on among the pre-2014 universalists/internationalists aka IFS-Lobby.
Appeasers of yore have now become Right-of-Rightists - just another way to try subversion. Read the usual rags/DDMs where u can find this game going on.

Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020

Another way is to fund insurgency in Tibet/Xinjiang. China is paranoid about people revolting, while our resilience comes from the fact that we have faced insurgencies since 1947, China is very underconfident about handling any insurgency without over reacting. China has to an extent stayed out of ...

Cmde.Mao is way too senior to be doing test flights. After several years on the Tejas, he's now working on NLCA. How about the next cohort taking over actual flight testing

Re: Indian Single Engined Multi Role Fighter with Transfer of Manufacturing Technology

.... Heck, we're going to tender for assault rifles—after all the hoohah about INSAS (which I believed and wanted to). What's the alternative? New build MiG 21s, Qatari M2Ks? Please don't say 160 SU-30s or SU-35s. What's your take? Have you read the thread right here on the MIL forum on the INSAS?

Re: Indian Single Engined Multi Role Fighter with Transfer of Manufacturing Technology

ISRO not comparable to HAL. HAL is a mass production case - even allowing for fact that airframe types are made in batches, blocks, etc. After very detailed reviews of the INSAS 5.56 and how shoddy a finished product it is - please see what a wide gulf is there between design and manufacturing.

I suppose laypeople, and non-laypeople, would like to know how India compares in ratio of accidents to flying time, as well as total number of accidents. Which country is the 'worst' in this regard, and which the best? It does seem that India has quite a few. Even a BBC correspondent mentioned it a...

Re: Indian Single Engined Multi Role Fighter with Transfer of Manufacturing Technology

Is the LCA being killed ? I hope not. It will be the biggest joke if the flagship aerospace project of the nation is flushed down the toilet. if it is being killed, then HAL has a very big part in the killing. Do you guys realise that producing an operational aircraft in quantities is not merely a ...
