    For paki they do only tactical move in to Indian airspace only 10 or 20 km inside Indian territory with SEAD or stand off systems for that what we need better 4++ gen intercepcters not upgraded 3 Rd gene what happened in Feb 27th points to what we need most , a rapid modernization in aircraft fleets, we need more gud point intercepcters like LCA mk1 with i-derby like missiles not the other way around

    Bdw.,,everything comes in media is not true m..just saying

    1stday......america is offering f35 and thaad to india(by manu pubby)
    2nd day........India is firm in stands to buy s400(forgotten the author)
    3rd day.......India is going to buy NASAMS (by rajat pandit)(it was earlier reported in previous year too)

    And all quoted sources I believe reporters are countering each other,ajit doval or rajnath singh would have been smiling some where by seeing these reports

    Bdw why india needs nasam....just only to apprai usa

    India will have s400.....
    Has its own bmd....aad
    Has mrsam
    Has akash mk1 and mk1s
    Akash mk2 will be in 4..5 year maxm (first trial this year)
    We have qrsam.....spyder.
    ...
    And a strong air force....,..
    ....and still nasams.......then why not iron dome

    For nasam II India sent an letter of necessity.
    USA approved it and now moving forward.

    F35 or THAAD India made no official move for them .

    This purchase of Nasams 2 is a quid pro quo deal to sooth Uncle Trump's frayed nerves.

    It's sort of a payment for the Rs 5.43 billion S-400 deal.

    As a product, it will add zero value to our inventory since we already have systems better suited to meet our requirements.


    And the deal is just around a billion US dollars. We Indians can afford this. Or else, Uncle will send its CAATSA goons after us.

    NASAMs can counter Cruise missiles which can't be counter as of now by operational system

    But the same money could have been invested in extra Chinooks/MH-60R/C-17 rather than a duplicating air defence systems. If the NASAMS deal does materialize Indian Air Defence System will be one of the most SEAD proof systems with too many types.

    Iglas
    QRSAM+Spyder+Akash
    MRSAM+NASAMS+ Extended Range Akash
    S-400 + Indegenous BMD

    Barak-8 MRSAM/LRSAM (80-120 km range )which is being inducted by both Army and AirForce was designed for Cruise Missiles!! Plus we already have 15-20 Elta EL/M 2084 radars spread across India and 2 Aerostat mounted Ela 2083 which were designed to work with Barak-8 against aircraft and cruise missile threat.

    Yes in AD we were lacking very much with Soviet SAM systems but now a good numbers of systems have been developed ,procured ,deployed and are in developing stages as well Akash NG and Phase 2 of BMD should also be tested in near future , Enemy's hollow threats have created a "chakravyuh" that even abhimanyu can't pass

    Any amount of AD can never be enough... more the number of layers, more the probability of success...

    I said that the media report that s400 is off is a media hype

    It's puzzling. It seems like a deal for another deal.

    Sorry if reposted.

    Key Takeaways: Most of the older radars seem to be digitized as evident below.
    1) 11:45 onwards - Interior of Reporter Radar
    2) 14:30 onwards - Interior of Flycatcher Radar
    3) 16:00 onwards - Digital training aids / simulator

    Rest you can see ZSU-23, L-40, Shilka etc
