I do not support names other than sanskrit origin ones. sanskrit based names represent our actual culture and heritage.
Rest all names represent or communicate non-standard and non-Indian philosophies.

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

I think, IAF can not depend exclusively on ASTRA. It needs some missiles of better ranges than ASTRA (like 130-150 km range) too. So, it is good to buy long range missiles if available in the market. Also, ASTRA is not still ready for induction. In year 2003, i read a news that Astra will be ready f...

The name of the running telugu year is 'vikruti', meaning 'destruction' or 'loss'. (rockest are launched from andhra.)

I am frequently seeing the news that LCA completes IOC by this year end (only 2 more months).
There was no radar guided missile firing till now. NO heavy bomb(and LGBs) dropping.
No cannon firing.
Does IOC not need these? or will they do these complex tasks in just 2 months?
