As of now Modi have been in power for
8 years, 9 months, 20 days, 13 hours, 54 minutes.
Defence is always and anyways a least priority sector for this government.
Thing is, we want modernisation like Americans did during ww2
Belief in Fatalism, it will be costly for us in a war.
Neither we have picked up a side to support when world goes to dog shit which it will in future.
Nor we have a strong enough military to ensure our neutrality in a global war
India was called a pavallion during colonial era by brits as, it was cozy here and good.
If we wish to remain a pavallion we need a strong military.
Squadrons of planes have barely increased, AMCA nowhere in sight, tejas mk 2 nowhere in sight.
Mk1a nowhere in sight in future we will retire our jags and remaing migs.
We a rising economic power is considering to buy old mirages, to support our fleet.
Horrible and pitiable at the same time
Hal cries about resources crunch, folks should tell them to concentrate on a single project at a time if they can't make AMCA fast enough then put it in cold storage ( it's already there for all intents and purposes)
Took us 13 years to finally make the vikrant sail, without any airwing, vikramaditya remains half of the year in port, bloody rifles, it will be 14 years next year since tender was initially released, that factory at Korwa is making imaginary rifles.
We are literally running behind on 20 year old projects .
Are we even serious?
Indigenous weapns are behind a decade.
When they arrive army gives piecemeal order but remember karara jawab diya jayega ji.
