I am glad we came out of this mentality

"" At this meeting the then Home Secretary asked the Army general why we were not building strategic north-to-south roads and questioned the delays in doing so. The answer was that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) could use these roads to come into India. The Home Secretary shot back that at this rate India should also stop building roads in Delhi. """

I think M88 engine should be used in Tejas MK1A if we buy more rafales because it will be easier to maintain these engines as both rafales and Tejas would be using the same engine and France is more reliable partner than USA
how many of you agree

Modi has gone silent on China.
Modi has realized that his approach with China has failed.

Response will come from MEA and Defence ministry.

India is in full defensive mode. People expecting aggressive approach from Modi will be disappointed.

BUT Modi will prepare for war as much as possible. Make no mistake.

Lack of statement won't change facts on the ground.

No foreign country is reliable tbh.
Russia isn't reliable because it is almost a Chinese vassal now, Goras are unpredictable, pata nahi kab peacefool aur hooman rights ka keeda lag jaye.
Besides if we want to be a Great Power, we have to succeed with our own Kaveri jet engine project.

Nobody will do ToT of core jet engine technologies, and stealing/reverse engineering isn't that easy otherwise the bat-eating pros would have volume production of the WS-10 engine by now :pound: :pound:

Creation of indigenious MIC has to be done at full throttle, first by starting with a purge on DRDO and OFBs

That would also mean CAPF being trained along army lines in a crash course, and also staffed by some Army officers.. any intent shown on that front ?
I agree with you that it is not so easy.
It is a fundamental bureaucratic battle that needs a firm political decision in national intrest.

Employment of BSF in 1965 and 1971 has not been pleasing at all. Army had to suffer lots of casualties to retake those areas from where BSF just scooted.

The most important aspect of any combat/ fighting organization is its leadership and training. CAPF is woefully deficient in that. No amount of NFU or up-gradation of its officer cadre can make them combat leaders unless trained scrupulously well.

The most vital part is interoperability between Army and CAPF. That requires similarity of equipment, weapons and ammunition and especially communication.

But if CAPF can be made use of in relieving Army Formations from the ground holding roles in Second tier or depth areas without ifs and buts, that would increase the availability of troops for offensive roles.

Recently MHA has made some noises in that direction of relieving constables from internal security duties and domestic help duties. Let some good sense prevail and all border guarding battalions be assigned to the borders...

Well..let us hope .. Modi himself is looking jarred and tired offlately with every tom, dick & harry attacking him. Shah need to share some burden with him...

I don't expect anybody else to pitch in as all are just not there.... Specially ninja turtle...

Meanwhile - US F-35 fighter jet crashes after a mid air collision with a KC-130J tanker over California. Pilot ejected. Tanker managed to land safely despite damage.

Do you see Xi making any statements? That's what leaders do. Modi has given good enough statements still.
Indian defence posture is designed for defensive approach. The only time we went aggressive was in 1965.. When entire J&K was in threat.

At the moment it is clear that we will not fire the first shot but we will prepare for everything. However If Chinese don't go back expect this to be the new LoC. With China gaining F4-F8 & we gaining heights over Spanggur gap.
Depsang will turn into a grey zone of sorts.

How would responding to a greeting by another world leader , that too a democracy , affect China ?

I am guessing its a slight on purpose , dont wanna offend our dearest neighbour.
