As I expected u really lost reality with ground
Iaf is rarely using the large fleet of il-76 due to serviceability issues wrt spares and parts
Ask any sane member related to issues wrt il-76
Ha ha ha ha ha. Lost reality?? Really?? Before the program was due for refurbishment, the IL-76s had been reliably carrying out India's military cargo transportation needs. It was only when its mid life refurbishment time came it started suffering. Once you get that sorted out, it will be reliable again. And the C-17 program will face the same problem because Boeing shut its production line a while ago and the spare supply chain will become a problem in the next decade, subjecting the C-17s to the same issues that IL-76s were facing before.
If we can get local production of the most modern version of IL-76s along with the spare parts, the serviceability rate will become a non issue.
If you want to go for the C-2 or A400M be my guest. Just find the money to pay for this without handicapping the other acquisition projects that IAF has in the pipeline.

Atleast spending will help us in maintaining capability which is lost by buying gajraj
Everyone blame mod and iaf for their blunder for not ordering c-17 when usa said it might close the line
U came from somewhere and praising il-76
First time in my life I am hearing good about gajraj by someone
I am not praising the IL-76s. I am just tired of IAF shopping around for different models instead of focusing on one model and getting economy of scale as to simplifying its logistic chain. Somebody has to read the riot act to IAF and MoD and stop being like a child in a candy store with different bunch of candy.
We need to be methodical with the constraints we have and the limited resources we have.
