    I want to see Indian soldiers being equipped with night vision goggles. All strike corps and not just special forces or NSG's. This should have been done by now. Getting them of the shelf is not difficult either.I would always want the infantry to have a conventional edge in terms of equipment over PAK and China.

    I think India should develop or buy an ASAT. If the other side can see your troop deployments with their satellites and yours have been shot down, they will have a significant advantage. It is necessary to even the playing field.

    (As an aside, the Nag missile test on Youtube was pretty cool.)

    given the chance i would try to equip at least two-thirds of India's infantry to the level and quality of equipment of the British F.I.ST program.

    I would like to see some large military hovercrafts in our fleet, as well as a couple of helicopter carrying multirole ships. Also I would like to see a more technologically advanced army with sophicated weapons and communications equipment.

    None of them is made in India.India should develop his own military industry other than depend on foreign source.Look at what Russian did to you on the carrier's price.Depend on others,Subject to others.

    What I want -

    Indian soldiers to be fully equipped with weapons US soldiers are equipped. Give them night vision goggles, high performance guns.

    early induction of Agni V with ICMB / MIRV capability. Having Agni V would make our enemy consider many times before invading India.

    Also a development of short range - medium range missile with MIRV capability

    Timely Induction of FGFA and successful induction of Tejas

    early Induction of nuclear-capable long range ballestic missile which can be launched by Submarines

    Induction of Kaali 5000 / Kaali 10,000.

    Our scientists' ability to expand the range of Brahmos missile.

    successful test / induction of 12,000 km nuclear capable long range missiles

    great amount of deadly MRCA jets

    we would be dominating in south asia:india:

    Indian Soldiers need basic things first,indian army should start from bottom to top.It will be good if we provide complete body protection and rifles having good range and accuracy keeping cost in mind,rather than buying huge missle stalk piles which we are not going to use in near future and we already have enough of them to meet the needs for now.Better intellegence co-ordination ,armoured vehicles and better living conditions of our soldiers that should give a boost to their morale and belief in the country

    Don't know about the Navy and air force,,but surely the infantry needs a changeover
    The INSAS rifles should be changed with much modern Tavor or F2000 or at least G-36, Sig sg551,,,,,surely a DRDO product can be considered if it is good enough..
    More importantly new Kevlars that would actually stop a bullet and not those outdated ones which are in service
    And also a carbine for each soldier that is currently non existent,,,,the MSMC looks good,,,although i don't know if the trials have been satisfactory

    I would like to see some competence at the MoD, the DRDO (especially there) and the three services ...Any technology is only as good as the people using them.
