    This is a welcome step. Only concern is 60 months for deliveries to begin. Not sure when BDL will start production.

    If we are looking at a period of next 2-3 years, we need to increase our efforts on indigenous technology. If NAG is good, pass the production lines to TATA or Mahindra or BDL. If we have any other options that are ready move them quickly to production lines. These will be good answers to Chinese light weight Tanks in the eastern front. Even if we have 2nd generation shoulder fired anti tank missiles, if they are good, deploy them in sufficient numbers in eastern front.

    If ever there is a war with China, the first wave of attack will be from air. Second wave of attack will be by tanks. We need to prepare for both the waves of attack with sufficient numbers of SAM and ATAGs.

    We should also have large numbers of bunkers to escape the first wave of air attacks so that we are able to survive and then able to give them a bloody nose. I hope our planners have factored in every possible war scenario when we are ready for a 2 and half front war.
