    Well if we go for aviation wing, then done kind of operational structure will ge formed. But don't know if we can have of the kind you are saying as thst would then require very vast assets for different battalions.

    Maybe at the division level. I think our military pros can better answer that.
    What is the US structure?

    that is because the army will support itself by placing less burdens on the Air forces shoulders in terms of Tatical real time CAS and A2G strikes

    India does not have money for raptors those are very expensive.About A-10 .u see in MMRCA competition they are offering us SH and SV ( super hornet and super viper ) so if at all ask for A-10 who knows they might sell it to us

    Tomcat,
    we can have a separate division of air assets on the lines of the mechanized division. With the services getting wired, calling in for CAS would be very easy.

    there is a russian alternative .Its SU 25 for CAS missions but A-10 is better,Russians policy is that CAS is through helicopters and not aircraft hence they did not develop Su 25 much

    We do(obviously not for 128 of them). Anyhow, lets not get into what is not possible.
    About the A-10, Super Hornets and the falcons are already in use with many countries throughout the world. A-10 has not been sold to a single nation till now, and the plans for selling second hand A-10s to Turkey were also scrapped.
    A-10s are not one of those which will be offered if we ask for them.
    Like the EA-18 Growler, F-22, B-2s and other masters in their art, the A-10 Thunderbolts are exclusively for the USAF/USN.

    the raptor costs around 125 million and certainly we cant afford much of them .plus USA will be crazy if they sell it to us .US senate will be clearing EA 18 growler for India
    if USA sell us A-10 good .if not we can go for SU 25 from russia

    they are baiting us by sweetening the deal. they want to make some clean bucks before closing the viper line though the machine itself is pretty good.

    as far as the army is concerned i believe they should stay the hell away from fixed- wing assets those are the airforce's babies however i do believe that each strike force should be attached to a robust and capable chopper escort, the modern attack helo can do a better job of providing CAS than any fixed wing aircraft(except maybe the frogfoot and the warthog). however the airforce needs to be involved in as to provide air cover for these helos.
