I just feel like banging my head on the wall. What exactly stops India from declaring Pakistan as enemy state?

Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

What we need is confirmed orders. Tell HAL it will be 320 LCA. Whatever version is completed development, it will produced next. The production line does not stop, because a version development is beyond schedule. Upgrade older version, if need be. Requirement like IOC only 16, FOC only 16, will or...

Re: MoD:Defence Procurement Policies Issues and Discussions

There was time to do that, it was immediately after 2014. But now its not possible. The most important sector of GOI is barely touched in terms of reforms. I frankly feel Modi govt finds itself out of depth here completely. They have all good intentions but lack the competency and conviction to tak...

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

This one is interesting article dated July 2017, https://idsa.in/idsacomments/tejas-one-year-after-induction-hal_sbmaharaj_120717 It emotes same apprehensions what we have today. If this was really July 2017, there are serious questions on HAL's willingness to promote Tejas. Looking at recent trend ...

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

let me tell you a truth. So called "Everyone" never gets punishment. And expecting of everyone following morale principles is impractical. It is the leader who can make it or break it.

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

What is this babudom really is? Is RM not part of it? What role does "Minister of State for Defence" and "Defence Secretary" have? If we assume RM can be influenced by advisors, who are those really? After all who is accountable?

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

:) I don't think we need to lose hope on Tejas as long as there are chances of BJP coming back to power. There are lot of fishy things in and around DPSUs/MoD/Procurement teams. Honestly a lot of work needs to be done on these DPSUs than Tejas itself. Raksha Mantri ji needs a very proactive approach...

Re: Kaveri & Aero-Engine: News & Discussion

I am another wish maker like https://mobile.twitter.com/AdvaidhyaT/status/1086544330603425792, But one thing must be certain that Kaveri production contract should not go to HAL alone. Fortunately BharatForge & TASL has already started capability building in jet engine production. In-fact I stro...

Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

I am interested to know when a contract is signed between IAF and HAL who approves expected timelines of deliverables. I am certain that HAL's agreement on timelines is must for any contract to be final. Does IAF/MoD includes any clauses which are binding on HAL which can result in penalty or deduct...

^^^ Assuming ... Though it doesn't make sense, MMRCA must be there for a reason. May be more as a strategic than to just answer depleting sqd issue. I don't know how much true it is but i read somewhere that start of MMRCA back then ensured that our neighbor is denied access to better platforms and...

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

I am just a curious guy following Tejas for more than a year now. What I have understood is, MoD, IAF/IA, PSUs(ADA/DRDO/HAL) have formed Chakravyuvha. We really need a strong pair of Krishna and Arjuna to break this and others might end up like Abhimanyu (Good Intent but Half Knowledge /Inability to...

Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

I too strongly believe that we should go for min 03 more sq. i.e. 54-60 Rafales instead of waiting for MMRCA. Though I also want MMRCA to take its due course. Simply because it won't reflect on good ethics of our country. Regarding Rafales, I have few naive curiosities which comes from my optimistic...
