    First thing that springs to mind is to have 15,000km MIRV ICBM.

    Re: If you were the defense minister

    1. Restructure DRDO into multiple CoE companies from which people work together for Armed Forces funded projects.
    2. Create a Defence SEZ to promote R&D and manufacturing
    3. Initiate comprehensive strategic review with the scope of internal security, economy and foreign relations.

    Any thing but Russian:

    This Is Going To Piss Off The Russians
    by James Dunnigan
    May 18, 2011
    India is seeking new sources of spare parts for its vast array of Russian military equipment. Any reputable supplier can bid, as long as they aren't Russian. This new policy is the latest example of the growing rift between the Indian military and their chief supplier of military gear for over half a century. While India has been generally satisfied with the cheap, but rugged and effective Russian weapons, there has been less satisfaction with the quality and timely delivery of spare parts. India also accuses Russia of jacking up prices after deals had been made. Decades of complaints from India have not changed the situation much.
    India has tried manufacturing its own spare parts, but that has not worked out well, despite the fact that India manufactures many Russian systems under license. But some types of parts require manufacturing skills that India has not achieved yet. This became public eight years ago when India sought reasons why so many of their Russian warplanes were crashing. India lost 250 MiG-21s to accidents between 1991 and 2003. When consulted, Russia pointed out that India had insisted on manufacturing many of the spare parts needed to keep MiG-21s operational, and many of these parts were not manufactured to Russian specifications. While Russia does not have a reputation for making the highest quality equipment, their standards are often higher than India's. It's no secret that much of the military equipment made in India is pretty shabby by world standards.

    But India has cash, and has no qualms about getting quality spares from any source that can deliver them. There are, in fact, firms in many nations (Israel, China, several in Eastern Europe) that produce, or can produce, these spare parts. India is seeking such suppliers, and will probably get all the quality, affordable, spares it needs. As a bonus, the Russians will be highly pissed off.

    but why should we buy weapons, we should invent it. we are going to be dependent in almost all things. if we can make supercomputer and nuclear bomb, we can invent any deadliest missile

    Re: What military equipment would YOU like to see in the Indian Armed


    i share your basic vision ....but mine is simpler and therefore more attainable -

    yes india should more seriously aim for totally indegenous programs ... ...BUT less variety of products and but widening the strategic aspect - i.e- less variety of weapons but greater numbers of each and thus greater deployment ..by limiting the variety of weapons the idea is to intensify the effort to totally indegenise production and then do our own innovation and development to next generation .... at the mement we are dazzled by new products from abroad and so we keep buying ....FEWER PROJECTS , BETTER INDEGENISATION LARGER MANUFACTURING

    india has already spent a lot widening the range of products - can now afford to go indigenous on each ... we are good at missile development ? so more missiles - less buying AC from half-friends
    in summary - two main areas :-
    (1) i would like to see india go for megaton test -
    (2) missile development - in collaboration with ISRO for space to earth missile weapons
