How many of the indigenous weapons listed above have been inducted ? Arjun mark 2 , dhanush , lch etc etc .

I still don't know why no orders for LCH and Dhanush even after clearing all the test.

Delay in LCH is probably because new HAL Tumkur plant is still under construction.

That is very good. Can you put a price against each and total it up and when is the cash due.

Attempt can be made going thru media reports, but I think the outcome will be misleading and inconsistent.

These days, there is big support cost included in the sanctioned amount. And missile packages are signed separately.

I don’t want to over complicate this.

No order has been placed and it is not related to tumkur plant.
Lets use this thread to discuss acquisitions that have happened, not for future acquisitions.

You may take it up in LCH thread.

Please add another one, this is the eleventh C17 Globemaster III acquired in 2017 currently being retrofitted and scheduled to arrive in the second half of 2019.

Cannot fathom why Modi is getting into bed with Putin to such a degree, clearly US ties are in trouble.

Or there is consensus between India and U.S, that future adversary is china and not russia.
Ties with China too have been warming up lately.
US started putting vitriol in ties, not us. Second, India's an autonomous state. Not having a pre decided policy of being aligned with first world and against second world.

ideally yes...
but my comment was based on Navy chief's recent statement.

"We can match what forces China can bring to bear in the IOR. But in the South China Sea, the dice is loaded in their favour."

Next year govt will change and all these acquisitions will be delayed for another decade. Nobody is really concerned as National security gets fcuked up.

A little mistake.
The two Grigorovich are being bought off the shelf for 0.95 billion. Not 1.45 billion

No country is going to part with tech like Russia and Israel. But even Israel's hands are tied when it comes to certain technologies and products since they get funds from Uncle Sam and Uncle had got a say in what Israel can sell and share with her allies.

Case in point being the Arrow interceptor.

No one is going to part with strategic tech other than Russia. INS Arihant and her sisters being an example..

Even we used Agat seekers initially for PAD and AAD interceptors.


Let Uncle Sam give us ToT for the F414 EPE and lease us a Virginia block 1 SSN, then we can think about the US of A.

As far as going to bed is concerned, we are Indians. We aren't a vassal state, nor do we have to depend on others for our survival. We are a strong and powerful nation.

And we follow Chacha jis Non Aligned policy. We always steer clear of the power blocs.
