Love for ATHOS and Hydraulic drives of ATAG cost him CDS. General Naravane was front runner for CDS but maybe he touched Chandigarh lobby somewhere on his way.
:lol: Kuch bhi. Why are you always so negative.

MM Naravane, unlike his predecessor Late Gen. Bipin Rawat, comes out as pretty timid. Regardless, it is entirely possible he will be the next CDS, we are just speculating due to the delay. In fact, the CDS position has been kept vacant for around 4 months now just for the retirement of MM Naravane.

He would have been became CDS just next day of ViRa death. Why government would wait for his retirement? Now even if government offer him CDS (unlikely) that will be unceremoniously as compare to ViRa.

Problem is, you people don't pay attention on carefully choosen words and sequence of events Hence, often miss whole picture.

It been 8 years since Modi came into power and Military hierarchy has proven themself biggest road block for reforms.

Despite of repeated calls, Modi is not able to implement reform even 40%.

IA needs to take a call on smart watches, all smart watches have location tracking.

US army folks gave out location details
======
Fitness tracking app Strava gives away location of secret US army bases

Time to pull out digital watches from the army canteens
It would be good , that analogue is brought back

India may scrap 6.5 lakh Ak-203 rifle deal, and opt for SSS Defence's upcoming 7.62mm Ak type Rifle
The much-awaited local production of 6.5 lakh 7.62 x 39 millimeters Russian Kalashnikov Ak-203 Assault Rifles was scheduled to begin production in March 2022.

But now, IgMp has learned that the officials associated with the project have pointed out that this long-delayed deal could be postponed further or could be scrapped altogether at any time.

On the other hand, Indian Private Sector firm SSS Defense is all set to unveil a new 7.62 x 39 millimeters rifle which is a modification of the company's existing P-72 Rapid Engagement Combat Rifle (RECR) and will be an improvement over the Russian Kalashnikov rifles and its derivatives such as the Ak-203.

Recently SSS Defense bagged the contract to modify Indian Army Ak-47 variants and they have already delivered the modifications kits to the Indian Army. Indian Army is said to have been impressed with the quality of modification kits delivered by the firm.

Repeated delays in price negotiations and technology transfer agreements with the Russians over Ak-203 may force MoD and the Indian Army to go for indigenous firm SSS Defense made upcoming Ak type 7.62mm Assault Rifle.

Does this mean that the IA is trying to find alternatives to the Kalyani M4 and came up with this RFI designed to specifically exclude the M4?
Yup, Now they want 12 personnel in their 4x4. The gernails do this in every project, change the requirement so that videshi maal can be bought and they get commission after retirement.
