Good for India then. Its about time it made a mark on the defense export sector.Lol the Russians are the biggest exporter of Arms to Algeria and what Billion of Dollars worth weapons Chinese sold to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
Lol now don't say your Artillery is comparable to BAE.
As for Precision guided munitions, we already have this ability in Pinaka MK 2. Just go through that Thread.
A range of Helis, including variants of Dhruvs and French Cheetah made under license.
Whole range of Radars, Sonars to Myanmar, Indonesia and few countries in Africa.
Subsystem of SU 30 like Avionics even to Russia.
So when India sells equipment to "Myanmar, Indonesia and few countries in Africa" they become "quality customers" but when China sells to them they become "piss-poor"? Make up your mind.
The PLZ55 is now a mainstay of Saudi Arabia's, Kuwait's AND Algeria's artillery forces. You can call them "cheap" if you wish, but they are still EXPORTS.
Why shouldn't NORINCO's AH4 be comparable to BAE's 777? They are the only light-weight 155mm artillery pieces on the world market. Is India producing something similar to the AH4? Nope, India is BUYING the 777, so I don't understand why you're trying to make fun of the Chinese defense industry when your own is non-existent in so many sectors...
An EXPORT is an EXPORT, whether the final customer is Myanmar or Canada. You're trying to draw a distinction that simply doesn't exist.
