    Have any one heard about ATOM IFV jointly made by French renault and Russian uralvagonzavod..
    recently french left that project..we can fill that gap and can make it India..It had good protection upto STANAG Level 5..can stop round up to 25mm.

    Our defense budget is not sufficient for maintaining these babes.

    What would be awesome is if India's AURA/Ghatak UCAV were mounted with a radome on top housing a long range AESA radar. That would make it an unmanned AWACS!!! (this version needn't carry too many weapons other than probably couple of AAMs for self protection)

    Firstly the unmanned AWACS would be stealthy (due to its size and airframe) and as such not that exposed to some of the AWACS-killing AAMs.

    Secondly the surveillance team would be safe on the ground.

    And lastly - it would be a very inexpensive AWACS!! Currently the platform (plane) to host the radar (and the surveillance team) is the most expensive component. The platform-to-radar cost ratio is probably around 100:1. IAF could possibly acquire these AURA/Ghatak AWACS for around $25-$30 million a piece as opposed to the current price of $300-$400 million a piece for conventional AWACS (even the domestic AWACS has a foreign plane like Embraer/Airbus)!!

    For warships(including aircraft carriers) I have an idea. Instead of flying platforms (helicopter or airplanes with AEW&CS radars) that guzzle fuel and don't give 24/7 coverage, a high powered tethered drone (quad or octo copter) should be employed, perhaps 10,000ft-15,000 ft above the ship! The drone can carry an AESA radar and optical/thermal scanners.The drone will be continuously powered by the ship (and also run a fibre optic cable from the sensors down to the ship) - this will give round the clock coverage!!! These will be dirt cheap and employable on all Frigates, Corvettes, Destroyers and Offshore Patrol boats (both Navy and Coast guard)!!! This is similar to the Aerostats (Nakshatra) that IAF intends to deploy along the borders - but I feel aerostats are too big/clumsy to be carried by ships, where in fact the quad/octo copters would be compact and really cheap and easily maintainable on board!!!

    There are currently 75+ large ships (1000+ tonnes) that might qualify for such tethered drones, and in the next few years that number will be 100+. If each of these ships were to have say 250 kms radius of coverage via the tethered drones then just imagine how much of the skies and seas/oceans will be under coverage!!!

    Smaller drones (with lesser radar coverage) could be put on some 100+ other smaller patrol boats (200+ tons) of Navy and Coast guard too!!!

    I haven't read every single page but imo,this is the only guy with at least an idea of weapons systems costing though he missed out on maintenance cost and cpfh with respect to aircraft.
    Fyi,even arty has a maintenance cost. The Russian giantsint costs 1.2mn$ and 100k $ annual upkeep (lubes,recoil springs and other consummables),the Mista same price at 150k$ upkeep yearly.
    C 17s cost 320 mn$ a piece with 15.5 mn$ in annual maintenance.
    OP next time to avoid such a potentially enlightening thread degenerating to fanboyism provide a REALISTIC proposed budget and timeframe,eg 5 or 10 years using the fabulous link for prices.
    http://nationsdawnofanera.weebly.com/transport-aircraft.html
    Btw,bengalraider with all these new ac will you want new radars? Mobile,fixed,short range/medium or long? How will they interface with extant civvy systems?

    Most of the current AWACS are built on existing commercial airplanes, which stealth platform can be used existing or future for AWACS role?

    I wished the Metal Storm technologies were successful. The company had gone bust. India could invest in the technology.
