    soryu class submarines are very Good , it was offered to Australia but they choose french DCNS’ Shortfin Barracuda submarines ........................12 submarines worth 50 billion $ .

    DCNS’ Shortfin Barracuda is upgraded version of Scorpène-class submarine ( Indian project 75i Kalvari-class submarine ) , we have TOT of Scorpène-class submarines and it is built in Indian shipyards .& DRDO has developed AIP systems .
    Japan was also unwilling to commit to agreeing to build the submarines in India (and we know India's shipbuilding industry needs just this sort of boost).
    Japan neither accepted nor rejected Indian proposal .
    Germany is offering TKMS Type 214 submarines to India on government-to- government contract .


    Type -10 tanks are light-weight , if they are ready to share its technology & willing to commit to agreeing to build the Tanks in India then it will be a Good offer .................but they rejected such requests from turkey due to restrictions .
    at present there are no such restrictions on Japan .

    First of all prove it please.



    Check it on Rafale and other threads, people said it many times, no one is willing to provide key technology.

    And I said, no one, keep it in mind.

    Even after paying a fortune in the name price for tot, Indians can't even use any torpedo on Scorpene subs.

    They have to look towards French first. And if they say yes, then all good.

    Other wise all super duper tot of Scorpene is useless.

    I hope, this might be enough for now.

    Until Japan comes out of its pacifist attitude working with Japan in defense is not a good idea...

    Japan or in that matter any other countries will not share the technology with India...

    sorry i mean to say DCNS’ Shortfin Barracuda is Better than Scorpène-class submarine .





    Indians can not Use Russian torpedoes on french Scorpène-class submarines because they are not compatible but we can use torpedoes developed by DRDO , Israel other Nato countries .

    http://www.defencenews.in/article/D...r-Scorpene-and-Indian-Nuclear-Submarines-6352

    everybody can provide Key technologies if there are sufficient political , diplomatic & economic reasons .
    every defence deal is different with deferent level of technology transfer & different terms and conditions .
    there are different conditions for Israel & turkey .
    israel can repair or modify it's F-35 but turkey dont have such privillege .
    if Indians could not utilize opportunity then it is our fault .

    Indians developed dhanush howitzer with Increased range from the TOT of bofors .

    But for that matter also they have to involve French in that process.

    On top of it, all this after paying a fortune in the name of tot.

    BTW, do you know how much roughly they paid for these 6 submarines in all.

    Not true.

    There are cases where countries like most powerful NATO allies refused tot to US itself.

    Now don't ask for links. I won't be able to provide it.

    But it is fact.
