Re: Possible Indian Military Scenarios - XIV

150 copies sold of FENIX is too insufficient to call it anything. The BR readers who appreciated Ahuja posts have to loosen up their pockets to buy more. Only then Vivek Ahuja becomes a successful writer. Please do buy more.

I suggest they buy nothing for the time being. They have to learn to fly better whatever they got. They just dumped to the ground a brand new C-130J costing $300 million. They lack proficiency in maintenance, flying and ordering spare parts etc. In shorting there is a huge deficiency in managing the...

Re: Artillery Discussion Thread

Indian army is a spoiled bunch. Its top structure needs revamp. Its GSQL requirement procedure need to be rewritten. It is already 40 years old. The DRDO, OFB and Army are always at logger's head. They need to be disciplined. That must be first task of the new government after May 2014.
