As a CDS, technically yes. CDS doesn't have any active military command under him/her. But there are a lot of other factors that go in- Forces have a conventional mindset and stuff like rank and file matter a lot.Is it possible in India to appoint again a retired personnel?
Navy Chief took responsibility during 2012-13 Navy mishap incident relating to INS Sindhurakshak and stepped down.
Just thinking, this is a heavy blot on IAF, crashing a VVIP flight that too, due to human error requires a scapegoat to take the bullet. I agree CAS should not, he was just recently appointed and has no responsibility in this.
I am sorry to say but this is defeatist mindset. Bar has been set by Manohar Parrikar ji and Rajnath Singh has fallen short by miles.Kadi ninda is much better than his predecessor in the chair. Do you want Nirmala Tai running defence once again? Unless you want to introduce a gender neutral washroom in forces, you better stick with Kadi Ninda. Fact is, he has been doing understated but stellar work as DM. Of course he can't be equated with legend like Parrikar.
Sir as far as jet engine Yes. However their turboshaft engine vk2500 is good and has proven in indian environment.Russian tech has become obselete especially their engine not reliable. This platform is not the ideal one for VVIP transport. However need to wait until the full reports are out
IAF and Indian Navy were worried about Army domination once the position of CDS is created. To negate such fears, CDS Post must be rotated between Three Services. Unlike Pakistan where an Lieutenant General is appointed to the post of CJOSC.
IAF did not oppose theatre command, they objected to be treated as a side-branch of armed forces.
