I think its not a good deal 1) Too expensive must be billion plus to get what 14 planes 2) Concentrating transport wing with western made plane is dicey they can always sanction you at any time 3) for the same price we can get more of the modernised IL-76.Buy them.. .also any C-17s on the block..?
Even if they sanction.. these second hand c-130s can be cannibalized to sustain the current fleet.. Just, like we are doing with the mirages. We should go ahead if we get them at a good price.. Fighting in POK, or LAC.. requires India to have very strong air lift capability.. Also, C-130s can land practically anywhere..I think its not a good deal 1) Too expensive must be billion plus to get what 14 planes 2) Concentrating transport wing with western made plane is dicey they can always sanction you at any time 3) for the same price we can get more of the modernised IL-76.
They will use rubber bullets install a pole and a pole dancer with that too but the one thing they will not do is hit the source of this issue.what does it takes to make powerful emp gun and fry electornics of drone
That issue was raised.If they firm up the commitment to take the Tot and sort out the negotiations with DRDO thereafter it will become part of the offset. HAL chairman was quoted in that report published back in October 2020 after the cag report , about the new agreement being signed for high thrust engine manufacturing that will be common to Rafales in terms of technology and be equally useful for 110Kn project. Nevertheless the talks are on.Safrans M88 engine is vastly inferior to what rolls royce can give us.A true supercruise capable engine.Rolls royce is the oldest and original engine manufacturere,and the russian fighter industry was also kickstarted by rolls royce engines in mig-15.If the chinese had this chance they would get it hook or crook.And here we are dithering.
SAM systems are where India actually has made great progress and will be self-sufficient in few more years (with XR-SAM). We hold enough of variety already, from Akash & its variants to VL-SRSAM and QR-SAM.1) SAM systems and nuclear submarine with Russia
No issue man. India ko adaat bear karne ki aur kaise kaam nikalna hai inse.There is nothing about being too proud or nationalistic in threat assessment (you shouldn't judge threat assessment by assuming enmity with USA as some kind of national glory. People here don't take pride in being enemy of US, Indian issues with US do).
US holds sufficiently military to shrink the regions of influence of Russia and China too. They see things down the line 50-100 years for acting and keeping check on all their potential enemies which may not be enemies today.
It makes very much sense for US to arm Australia to contain China which later contain India rather than letting encouraging to India push ahead which doesn't hold a clear friendly towards US. Australia is a weaker nationstate and won't demand equality & exclusive protection of its interests or its own influence unlike India does.
Japan was contained early through plaza accords and India's nuclear and conventional weapons programs were halted by sanctions. They even made a group of 74 nations (NSG) to limit India's nuclear progress.
West has always been anticipative about future course. In 1950s and 60s, they knew that large populations of China and India will make them first or second tier powers in future. So, they formulated their policies early. China will be first tier power in neck with US in upcoming 30 years while India will be only runner up left thereafter that might grow after China and replace it after Chinese economic decline. A heavily armed Australia at the levels of UK and France puts a permanent insurance to US interests largely in that case. Even if Australian military power always remains a fraction of India or China, it will always remain significant entity reducing some pressure from US troops. After all, Australia is still a middle power.
The engine rolls royce is offering us is 110 KN with uprating capacity upto 132 KN.
