Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

Almost everyone here indicates that there is a cost differential between the Agni S/R and Agni L/R. I disagree . I think those of you who believe that are missing out one of the biggest items and that is the command and control system needed to maintain these missiles on full alert (especially if yo...

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

Sahastra Paki strategist's are dumbass morons. If they were good strategists they would seek an equitable peace settlement with India and get on with building their lives, instead of provoking a showdown with India. These so called strategists have their head buried in the sand. Whats their record o...

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

Stepping into paki shoes i see no damn difference between agni s/r and agni l/r. After all both have the potential to smoke paki a$$ to the high heaven if they are stupid enough to make india to use this capability. So the only explanation can be that the pakis think that this test can be classified...

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

Given the likelihood that I will be flamed in this particular debate, i still stand behind my statement that Agni 1/SR gives us no(additional) second strike capability. This capability (only vis a vis Pakistan) already existed in Agni II/(0riginal)/LR. What additional mobility/survivability does Agn...

Re: Can India re-Value the Rupee?

Market decides what the valuation of a currency should. Revaluing a currency will only stick if the market believes in this. Instead of wasting political effort in this sort of crap the GOI would be better off to implement the second set of reforms 1) Freeing the real estate market 2) Removing restr...

Re: T-72s in Chechnya, From Armour Magazine

So does this mean that the Arjun tank is not a lemon and that it will be actually fielded on the front-lines unlike the vijayanta tanks which are held in reserves to inflate the numbers ? :confused:
