Aapse milkar accha lag hain; I've been looking for a forum like this for a long time! It's difficult to get good information on more mainstream 'national' forums between the $0.50 army and 'F-22 FTW' types. From what I see here so far, you're a well-informed bunch; I was particularly impressed by a Ukrainian gentleman's deep knowledge of T-90 armor (not even T-80 series!). 'Murican software engineer, hopefully one of the ugly types. Ex-USMA & dilettante in military matters. Can hardly introduce myself without posing a topic for discussion, can I? Here goes. India clearly has the base from which to build a strong attack helicopter force to perform the anti-tank role, and has a decent tactical interdiction capability with her combination of MiG-27 (variant?) and Jaguars (some of which are dedicated to anti-shipping work), but it certainly seems like there's a 'CAS hole' in the IAF. What is the doctrine here? Is the existing armor assumed to be enough to punch through the plains of Punjab without some kind of slow-moving aerial anti-tank support? Probably a temporary problem as Arjun/Nag/Rudra come online, right (ain't nobody gonna waste a new Tejas on CAS)? What does the Indian Army use for front-line anti-helicopter AD? Looking forward to screaming "Jai tequila" and charging into conversational battle with y'all.
