Thing is , you cannot build any thing today like ww2 levels .
They could make 10,000 plane of one type or cruisers after cruisers but they required those vast amounts of naval dive bombers to be effective or like germans made many stukas , numbering well over thousand because they tried some precision bombing thing with stukas.
The plane was the guidance system then plus stukas acted a today's attack helicopter also.
Today everything is so complex that it requires more cost and in the end remember that if royal navy could build 1000 naval ships ,then it was only possible because they had british empire and it's large resources .

GlobalData : Indian Navy looks for unmanned survey vessels, says GlobalData | MarketScreener

'An interesting point in the RFI is the requirement for the applicant entity to be an Indian vendor that is in line with the guidelines laid down by the Defence Acquisition Procedure 2020. This prerequisite is a clear push to ensure that local industry gets an opportunity to develop their offerings, and the ready availability of expertise, parts and services to the IN in case there's a requirement.

INDIA GETS UKRAINIAN ENGINES FOR ITS STEALTH FRIGATES, SENDS THEM TO SHIPBUILDER IN RUSSIA
There are two frigates under construction at Yantar shipyard in Russia

New Delhi: India has procured gas turbine engines from Ukraine and handed over to Russia to install them on the Admiral Grigorovich-class guided-missile stealth frigates that are being made for the Indian Navy by a Russian shipyard as part of $2.5 billion deal.

Sources in the defence and security establishment said the construction of the two frigates by Yantar Shipyard in Russia’s Kaliningrad is going on according to schedule, and the first of the two is expected to be delivered by the end of 2022.

The second vessel is scheduled to be delivered six months later in 2023.

“The engines from Ukraine have been delivered to Russia. The construction of the ship is as per schedule and there has been no impact due to Covid,” a source said, refusing to give a timeline.

The delivery of the engines, manufactured by Ukrainian firm Zorya-Mashproyekt, was also confirmed by a second source.

Following Crimea’s reunification with Russia in 2014, its ties with Ukraine went for a toss and Moscow stopped importing the engines from the Ukrainian manufacturer.

India had to, therefore, procure and transfer the same to Russia, which also needed Ukrainian permission that was given in 2016.

India had in 2016 inked an inter-governmental agreement with Russia for four frigates, a follow-on of the Talwar-class vessels, and its contract was signed at the end of 2018.

According to the deal, two ships are to be built in Russia, while the other two to be built at the Goa Shipyard in India with technical collaboration from Russia.

The Yantar Shipyard has also manufactured three of the six Talwar-class frigates that are in service with the Indian Navy.

Admiral Grigorovich-class ships are an upgraded variant of the Talwar-class frigates that were built between 2003 and 2013.

The hulls for the two ships had already been cut for the Russian Navy, but remained mothballed for several years.
Frigate deal faces threat of American sanctions

In 2019 it was reported on the progress of the deal after a visit to the shipyard.

Eduard Efimov, general director of the Yantar Shipyard, had said at the time new ships will have 22 new systems, including navigation, communication and weapons.

The frigate deal also faces the prospect of American sanctions if India is unable to secure a waiver.

India is seeking a waiver from the Countering America’s Adversaries through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) on the ground that its military is heavily dependent on Russian equipment and the two countries share a unique, time-tested relationship.

A Reuters report had last week said the United States has told India it is unlikely to get a waiver on its planned acquisition of Russian S-400 air defence systems, raising the risk of sanctions similar to those imposed on Turkey for buying the system.

I think till the time TEDBF enters production around 2030, IN should order around a squadron (18) of Naval Tejas MK1. It has undergone extensive testing in STBF, Goa and performed some carrier landings and take-offs as well last year.

Training for Joint Operation in Andaman Sea: Exercise Kavach


A large scale Joint Militaryexercise ‘Exercise Kavach’ involving assets ofIndian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force and Indian Coast Guard is being conducted in the coming week under the aegis of the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC), the only Joint Forces Command of the country. The exercise would involve participation and deployment of elements of Army’s Amphibious Brigade along with supporting forces includingSpecial Forces of Navy, Armour/Mechanised components, Naval Ships comprising Destroyers, ASW Corvettes and Landing Ships withship-bornehelicopters of Eastern Naval Command and ANC, Jaguar Maritime Strike and Transport aircrafts from Indian Air Force and assets of Coast Guard.


The exercise involves synergised application of maritime surveillance assets, coordinated air and maritime strikes, air defence, submarine and landing operations. Concurrently Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) exercise involving various technical, electronic and human intelligence from three services will be conducted. The ISR exercise will validate the capabilities of intelligence gathering from space, air, land and sea-based assets/ sensors, its analysis and sharing to achieve battle field transparency for quick decision making at different stages of operations.


The joint force would execute multi domain, high intensity offensive and defensive manoeuvres in the Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal and carry out amphibious landingoperations, air landed operation, helicopters-borne insertion of Special Forces from sea culminating in tactical follow-on operations on land.The tri-services exerciseaims to fine tune joint war-fighting capabilities and SOPs towards enhancing operational synergy.

Keep underestimating ur enemies, not every country is India.
Yup... Not everyone has enough money to actually try both. Least of all Turkey, definitely not Iran.

Muslims live in a dreamland & Turks ottoman nostalgia make them the greatest dreamers of them all. See if any of that actually happens.

Actually NLCA can takeoff with A2A load & centreline tank, confirmed by HVT.
