Whatever said by Yashwant Marathe, is a bitter truth which should not be taken as attack on HAL or any other institution. It is the reality of the whole system prevailing in India. The shortcomings must be looked into and taken care of so that the system should be refined.

Ecuador has grounded its fleet. HAL is not going to check and control its tradition. An officer, when pointed out its drawback, they lashed on him.
The reason for Ecuador grounding it was the maintenance issues, they didn't renew the maintenance contract with HAL, that's what I remember. And moreover Dhruv does have a pretty clean record in india when it comes to accidents.

But those kind of incidents do leave a stain on Dhruv's image. When Rudra was offered to phillipnes it was rejected citing its past crash record even though it was the cheapest option.

Yes, you are right... Actually, everyone, save exceptions, in this country aims for his vested interests. Else, we have the first written constitution of the world, having the finest metallurgy lab(lauh stambh), Charak and sushrut were the prominent medicos, baudhayan and aryabhat and what not, but, the vested interests have put ourselves to such position.

Even after 5 months they haven't released any video on their YouTube channel about Naval Tejas carrier landing.

That's why, on every platform, I say that the steel frame of All India Services, must be uprooted. Level playing field to everyone. Since the blue blood boys are beyond to any law, what they say is law, therefore, they do what they want and they can not be held accounted for whatever blunder they done. Is it not the responsibility of higher ups to promote TEJAS? A very capable platform is available but they are silent and nobody can ask them, no one can fix the responsibility....

Ya agnaist tanks it's useful...
But salvo of rockets aganaist infantary is very useful . .also rockets are less costly

Only if the rockets are guided in nature.
