Re: CDS, Tri-Services Issues & Integration Debate

Philip, As I said before India has a continental threat which is primarily an Army related. Until Pak is neutralized it's mainly Army primacy.

Current COS on rotation gives the other two a chance.

Almost two year old article, but still very relevant today. This is always the end goal of the American MIC. Troubles, The...

Basically
- The 36 Rafale are with weapons and all from France in fly away condition. No lafada with local mfg issues.
- Another line of aircraft from Russia in the pipeline.
- No worries with China as both IA and IAF are strong.
- Concern is old aircraft replacement.

Maitya, Maybe I should have addressed you?

IR if you know any Kaveri design guy ask him how a M88 core(designed for BPR 0.3) will work in a Kaveri (Designed for BPR 0.16) shroud?

I don't think it will unless its de-rated.
And they say its dia is smaller than the Kaveri shroud.
