    US is more concerned with putting its war economy back in place than stroke some Cold War era ego. Bunker busters of different category might be the call as we already got Sudarshan 1,000 lb one. But with this government in place, even if we made the Death Star as our national weapon, it would be useless.

    US made Paveways were also used in the kargill war against targets on tiger hill and other areas. But why only 100? We should be ordering 1000s since both China and Pak have thousands of heavly fortified targets.

    A 100 Bunker buster would be just fine, we dont need more than that. We just need limited LGBs has a precaution, Just to be prepared for another Kargil War.

    What India needs are some few JDAMs. Even Pakistan has JDAMs and are planning to fit them on their Jf-17s

    really after buying 800 spice kits why would you need JDAMs
    spice is far superior in range accuracy and independence off GPS ( backup optical sensor )

    Variant of Popeye Turbo! Nah! Nirbhay is not developed yet and as indications goes it is rather inspired of Storm Shadow specs.

    definitely, I agree. What we really need is in house production of JDAM based weapon systems.

    And they wasted our resources and efforts in 5 puny nuclear tests rather than use the money to modernize the conventional forces. Their false bravado of nuclear tests led to sanctions and problems for India. If they had modernized the Army, Navy and Air Force and THEN gone on to do some really useful nuke tests, it would have made sense. To me personally it was a premature show of strength that led to nowhere.

    Bunker Busters are not mere LGB or JDAM, they penetrate through the hardened shelter of the enemy defence or the bunker before exploding. Yes bunker buster should be in the shopping list, till recipe is not available.
