    Does India have any five stars? The Army must be big enough.

    We don't have Joint Chiefs like the US. Wonder when we can have a set up like that?

    Also the pros and cons of such a setup.

    Then the establishment is not mature enough for it. Perhaps a younger generation of commanders will change that.

    That's how all problems are expected to be fixed in India. Hope the younger generation are better than the last. Quite hopeless.

    In this particular case, it depends on the pros and cons. I don't know how all that works.

    I think 5 star in the US is just an honourary title these days.
