Instead of Machine pistol they should have gone for JVPC or ASMI
Asmi is machine pistol itself and by the time these were bought asmi wasn't ready and they didn't want anything to do with minsas rounds just made a fool of drdo by making them go round and round for jvpc and the new machine pistol contract might go to mp9 or asmi people are smart enough to know which side has heavy weigtaige

So even that is designed by drdo
Kya fayada when army won't procure until it iisn't made under license manufacturing
Neither whap nor this one better drdo provide the tech to any foreign company then IA will definitely buy

All angles & procurement except ISTAR seem to have been addressed. Hopefully the other procurements & ISTAR materialise in sound operating conditions in the numbers as projected today by 2030 .
ideally india should hv minimum:-
1:- 20 awacs.
2:- 10 refueler aircraft.
3:- 4-6 ISTAR.
4:- 4-6 jamming nd EW aircraft.
5:- 40-50 squads of aircraft.
IAF is lacking in many areas. it should be given biggest chunk of capital budget. 40:30:30 is ideal choice for three services. coz only IAF can take part on all three services. it hv important role in army nd navy also.

So simple checks on PLA.
They completely switch to SPA/SPH as their primary artillery. They have very limited Field artillery compared to the former.
PLA SPH Strength - 3600
Normal - 1234

On the other hand we have approx 3k field artillery vs 140 SPH/SPA. Even though all PLA will not throw all SPH on us. But still for their Western Command numbers will be still higher than what we have. Our IA generals should take strong decision.

But if we order 12 netra mk2, we can get things done more cheaply, due to economies of scale.

But your reasoning makes sense too
The additional Mk.1s should’ve been ordered 3-4 years ago to cover the gap to the Mk.2s, neither more Mk.1s nor Mk.2s have actually been ordered to date and these aren’t off the shelf procurements- they’ll require quite complicated conversion work even once they are contracted for

yet another claim by ukraine, with no substantial proof. just like they claim they already destroy two s400 batteries. do they show any proof of their claim. in Sebastopol they show a satellite pic of russian naval base with smoke. it can be edited easily. this taklu🤭 is so anti russia nd pro american, he needs no proof just claim to criticize russian weapons etc. 😂
can we believe this is concrete proof???
