Kalyani M4 production line.
Looks rad, but IA corrupt top brass and Chandigarh lobby and MoD circle jerk will ensure pitiful orders and production line shutdown, I hope I am proved wrong though.

Folks here will be very angry at their blue-eyed boy Navy :lehappy:
There is no other alternative option for the sea guardian UAV. It's sensor capabilities are unmatchable. Cheaper to operate and will save airframe life of P8-I. It's impractical and opex intensive to have the entire swath of IOR scanned by turbofan P8-Is 24*7.

Sometime back it was repoted that the plan to procure 30 qty MQ9B drones were dropped.

Reason for earlier cancellation was

India now wants to manufacture and develop all kinds of weapons and defence equipments on indigenous development and manufacturing. This is the reason that this USD 3 billion deal with America has been cancelled as of now.


What changed now?

CAATSA hafta ?

It's the same everywhere. Prop up & raise the China bogey, then sell F-35/-16s to Taiwan, SoKo, Japan. They seem to control both the good and the bad actors. Not to mention CIA's role in 26/11 is murky with that tool Daood Sayeed Gilani aka David Coleman Headley. After that attack of course the home ministry in India went on a buying frenzy.

If it is Sea Guardian, then i don't find anything odd in it. Integrated sensors for Naval Surface and AsubW, Sonobouy dispenser systems and ability to interface with those digitally to track targets will be game changing for navy. As per latest reports, Rustom just touched 30,000 feet. That too without payloads. IN has the vast stretch of IoR to keep track of 24*7. Employing a manned turbofan jetliner like the P8-Is for 24*7 is not practical.
