what’s changed on the bottom for the last 20/30/40/60/70 years really? The guys at the top have expansive state provided accommodation and recreation facilities but these guys are still going into the fight with poorly stitched webbing and a rifle.

>$20bn/year (IA’s budget) and this is what you get, then some have the audacity to oppose agnipath, if something drastic isn’t done to get the IA’s OPEX under control even a doubling of their budget isn’t going to do much.

It’s going to take decades to unf**k this mess, let’s hope the chiefs e play nice until then
