I suppose you could put Russian components on it, but then you already use Russian aircraft so it is not much different. Waiting for China to build a viable turbofan... I don't have that many years.you know all those foreign components will be localized if given enough time including the engines.
March-past is a display of discipline, not precision. If you watch western (or even Indian) marches, the focus is on discipline, not precision. We're trying to show that there's discipline, there are imperfections, but that only shows that the soldiers are humans and free citizens of our countries.Amusing enough.
Isn't it one of basics for military professionals, be it communist or whatever-ist?
II'd call it professionalism, rather than your in- depth analysis through ideological prisms.March-past is a display of discipline, not precision.

In communist states, the focus on robotic precision is a political message to other states that the guys at the top are in absolute control and their troops will do absolutely anything for them. It's a sort of insecurity on display.
I have noting against your love for China ... please do remember the following.Remember Chinese people are not our enemy, neither is their culture, we should learn to respect them, both of our civilizations are thousands of years old, there shouldn't be any grudges against chinese people and the community. Its their system of government that has odds with us, let's stick to that. Chinese mindset has been shaped by their 19th and 20th century past and just like us, they have seen a lot of oppression, I have a respect for that, and I am happy for them that they grew stronger out of it. Perhaps one day both of our civilizations would join hands and end the west's monopoly and get rid of muslim cancer.
Though it would have been better if they sticked to more conventional republic or a system that wouldn't have gone to odds with India.
It takes lots of trainings. Chinese military first modelled on Soviet later on American.But its damn mesmerizing. Though we don't get to see such precision in non communists states.
There are no natural enemies to any country. Humans are not animals.The comments comes out after seeing the parade ... It is related to parade the way I see it ...
China is a enemy country you like it or not ...
There are interests and ways to fulfill those interests. China is using PoK to plug its own strategic weakness rather than to flip off India. It needs unhindered access to the middle east and europe. That's the reason it seems like a natural ally to Pakistan.I have noting against your love for China ... please do remember the following.
1. It was China who gave the nuclear and missile technology to Pakistan clandestinely to be used against India.
2. It is China that is illegally occupying Indian territory at Ladhak.
3. It is China that is building roads across the PoK [Indian territory].
4. It is China that is making noises at UN against Indian interest in Kashmir ..
5. It is China that is opposing India in most of the international forums NSGs,UN etc
Trust me, the British Army, or even the Indian Army, isn't any less professional. Nor do I imply that your army is any less professional.II'd call it professionalism, rather than your in- depth analysis through ideological prisms.
It's not wordplay. Rather, I think discipline and precision sit on the same spectrum of order, the latter is an extreme. At this point, you're no longer striving to look like orderly men, but obedient robots. Both kinds already become professionals once they walk out of the academy. So it isn't a pursuit of professionalism.Word play like precision vs. Discipline, or free citizen or absolute control etc. is mind boggling. I don't believe there's 100% precision or perfection. But that's what a professional should all strive for and is worth respecting to perform your best in whatever u are committed to.
Okay, forget about India for a moment. Let me present the British Army (an army so "professional" that it almost conquered the Earth):Or that may be cultural differences instead of ideological. Maybe it could be traced to the "shame" (or sense of honour / pride) or ""face" ethos. I did see the nuance during my sojourn in India.
Compared to your other days, I would say this is as clear and sunny as it can get in a city which is famous for its smog......or the smog capital of the world :biggrin2:today's weather is really frustrating.
