Vayu reports that the VayuSena has received all the 22 Guardian Heptrs.
Hopefully we order the LCH too and this will give the forces an unmatched edge in the Himalayas.

Very solid views, I do not like the MMRCA V2.0 as well,focus should be singularly on Tejas and Super Tejas and more importantly fund the program well. If the latter(Super Tejas) is delayed, we can offset by getting more Tejas and bide time. HAL has said they can ramp up production to 20 units, let u...

Yeah, very much on the higher side, last report I remember quoted $62M for the Rambha from HAL. Maybe includes additional spares?

Edit:Indian Express says cost for a HAL built Su-30MKI is ₹415 crores (March,2020 article). So around $56 million.
