Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 15 Apr 2012

Rajit0, I dont think the army ever requested CAS or TPT fixed wing aircraft. They wanted a dedicated attack chopper capability. Almost every army worth its name in the World has such a capability. Including our esteemed neighbours to the West.

Looks like the dalaals are back in action, now that they have finally managed to get rid of VKS.

And MHA is finally big enough that their contracts mean something. So more waste of national resources there.
