Lots of mistakes here and there,stuff like nascent pvt industry, lack of manufacturing capabilites yada yada. One thing for sure,he calls out drdo's overpromising and underdelivering.

CAATSA hafta ?
Great, now IAF can build up its force with mk2, and it become the backbone of iaf.
Better explanation of the significance of this in the video . Also 3D technology ll ensure faster delivery .Indian DeepTech startup has recently achieved a breakthrough in the design of State-of-the-Art Aero-Engines for Cruise Missiles and Large UAVs recognized by DPIIT “Startup India” program . Paninian intends to develop and manufacture these complete families of engines ranging between 3-12 KN within India using state of the art 3D Printing technology.
The other breakthrough is in terms of developing an Artificial Intelligence driven Digital Twin for Legacy engine performance modelling and prognostics for supporting Mission performance and life extension efforts . Now India can carry out life extension of engines locally and accurately without resorting to foreign assistance.
