So IA is perfectly happy if our lads get blown to pieces in the low quality shabby OFB vehicles but won't order more (or order after 5 yrs maybe if we are lucky) of these for protection from IEDs in kashmir eh ? Great job herr gernails ! Clap clap clap.
And meanwhile they keep.complaining how there is no domestic manufacturing capacity and how shit quality is OFB. The cycle keeps repeating

I read a while back that the UN was unhappy that they were paying so much to india for UN contingents but their equipment was so subpar when deployed. I guess they made some ‘emergency purchases’ to cover up the issue.

the UN thing is just one big cash grab, I shudder to think where all the money goes

I wonder why to this day open top gypsys are in use in JK and the NE. Wasn’t the AR’s CO and his family killed a few weeks back because he was travelling in a civilian bolero or something in an active area?

Well that's my point ! Where is protection from ied required at a higher priority? UN peacekeeping mission or kashmir ? So where should it be deployed first albeit on a trial basis ? Hence it looks suspicious to me that it's just IAs way of stalling bulk orders.

Off topic - I do really hope that they caught the bastards that killed the CO and his family, especially his son. That broke my heart and left me in a such a fiery rage that lasted a couple days. Wasn't pleasant to be around. Please tell me that we repaid tenfold to the fvcking bastards that did the crime.
