Actually anyone that has been to Taiwan can say that Taiwanese are real Chinese with Japanese level service and attention to detail from taxi drivers to Eva airlines to hotels to food and temples so on. They certainly do not want the mainland influence but mainland is chewing up Korea and Taiwan faster than we like with their big checkbook. US made a big mistake with China investments post 2000 starting with ClintonThe divisions between the ROC and the PRC are largely over-hyped, don't expect anything to materialise there. Here is an informative video on this topic.
What are you saying? Pls explain. I do understand that it was blacklisted in 2016 due to allegations of corruption. So how's that shooting in foot. And what's wrong now with India wanting to purchase it.Because GOI decided to shoot itself in the foot and blacklist the company.
Because we had purchased it already.What are you saying? Pls explain. I do understand that it was blacklisted in 2016 due to allegations of corruption. So how's that shooting in foot. And what's wrong now with India wanting to purchase it.
LCA is already obsolete if we are going to consider Modern airforces like USA or European countries.
But our concern is Pakistan and China.
Tejas will be good enough for porks. Though we will be again in a catch 20 situation once they acquire j-31 /20 from chinks.
Yes, theoretically possible if material like tungsten or even depleted uranium?. is used. But these Earthquake bombs(as they were called) were designed to penetrate 40 metres of soil/ground and not 40 metres of RCC. But concept is feasible.Penetrative casing can can be applied to a MOAB like ordinance , just like they did with the "Grand Slam" bomb during WW2( weighed 4 times of MOAB). A 10 ton Ordinance coming down from 8000m should be able to penetrate 30-40 m easily.
You can get 100+ F-16s from US stock in a matter of months while Tejas will take years to come. USA can easily provide us 200 around F-16s and upgrade them for a very reasonable price.You make a reasonable point as far as used is concerned. However, we will need to create full training and support infrastructure for the Fs. The used ones should be the kind in our inventory (which is difficult to get) except maybe Mig 29s.
If jets are needed for defence, rather than used, it's better we invest in creating more assembly lines for MK1A.
Blacklisting is supposed to act as a deterrent to foreign firms not to offer bribes. But blacklisting has a negative impact on the ability of the Indian armed forces to get equipment. What about a stronger deterrent for Indian babus/netas/officers to stop asking for bribes instead? Like immediate imprisonment and the death sentence if convicted? Won't that be a smarter option? A better deterrent?Because we had purchased it already.
We did something similar with both oto melera and bofors gun.
It is better to continue purchase of that equipment but blacklist other equipment.
Blacklisting leaves a void like it did in our artillery forces.
Blacklisting has forced us to now look for commercial jets better to continue to buy that one product and ban others.
The video isn't right.. It says 'Han Chinese wouldn't justify killing other han Chinese'. Which is wrong!!!! Since when Xitler started to care about people??The divisions between the ROC and the PRC are largely over-hyped, don't expect anything to materialise there. Here is an informative video on this topic.
that's why I said if possible. if not possible, we'd at least take a stand against Turkey. enough of their bs.What we will send bhai already shortage hain apni...
But yes diplomatic support is required and I think the onus is on Russia first and they have ample reserve of weapons . Couple of bombs by russia will flatten the whole war mongering by Azerbaijan and turkey.
Agree...would'nt need a bomber to do the job in this day n age...with an assortment of missiles like Brahmos, Shaurya, etc...if anything, it would be easier,,,and would need only conventional charges...!I read the book when I was a kid, that was properller aircraft age....3 gorges is something else. Not physically possible for a bomber or aircraft to go on a run in Central China....
Also if I remember correctly, there was a doubt in the attack plan on whether it would even succeed. It was a good read at the time....
Meteor ? Don't add it yourself not on Tejas mk1/mk1aplease educate me a bit, how a flying platform with decent aesa radar and meteor, Astra and mica is obsolete (we will get astra2 soon and there is a chance for meteor in the near future after uttam aesa).
as Tejas was conceived to replace MiG 21, at least consider it's primary role that is point defence and interception.
and what's about mwf?
