Still the tomohawk can be stopped by decent air defences let alone S-300/400. Alegedly, the S-300 was caught with its pants down recently.

Just wondering after looking few snaps there! Can these Indian Navy officers clearly follow accent of those US counterparts and vice versa. Infact, US angrezi is kind of corrupted English.

The subs are there best bet but a good navy like IN has sufficient ASW to counter them. IN needs to buy sufficient MPA's and Get the ATV into water soon.

chankya neeti says never disclose your true power to anyone. And of course a 3 stage agni-3++(or 4) with a "declared range" of 5500 km (for say 1.5-2.0 ton load)will be a useful asset to have.
