    India To Purchase 3 More French ‘Scorpene’ Submarines

    You are still off the mark, The delay is the one that has extended from Scorpene, no new ones; part of that is being recovered already. The delay is in the original Sub Acquisition Plan. The delay is not even with the Project 75i; because that design has not been finalised. Right now there is...

    India To Purchase 3 More French ‘Scorpene’ Submarines

    None of that, your hunch is off the mark. It means something else; the first Scorpene, INS Kalvari is on her sea-trials now. This indicates that they are proceeding well, with the IN being happy. They will want to use the Scorpene line to make up for the slippage in the acquisition plans.

    India To Purchase 3 More French ‘Scorpene’ Submarines

    A follow-on acquisition of Scorpenes is certain. And it makes eminent sense; because the Scorpene line is still functional at MDL. Whether it will be a tranche of 3 or 6 is still the question. However that will depend on two things, the finalisation of the Project-75i design and to a lesser...

    your thoughts- What Happens if Naxalite Triggered Indian Nukes

    When one lives in bleak times; one has to find things that will keep one's spirits afloat. "Loony Toons" like these may be somewhat helpful, perhaps.

    your thoughts- What Happens if Naxalite Triggered Indian Nukes

    PDF seems to be finding some unusually amusing stuff to post on Twitter! :lol: But then as somebody once said to me: Twitter is for Twits and Twats. I have no problem if the Naxalites trigger off Indian Nukes.... as it is as Maoists; they subscribe to the notion of "The East is Red" as...

    Bahrain Airshow 2016 : Light Combat Aircraft Tejas in action

    @MastanKhan; since you bothered to write something (or the other) in response to the points that I made; I need to call you out on your (non-existent) points. You have (as you are prone to) made statements that lack substantiation e.g. "It was to mint money and keep jobs secure for the...

    Modarba Scam

    What I really found amazing in the story of the OP is how "fatwas" can become part of fiduciary "due diligence". Those investors just had it coming!

    Bahrain Airshow 2016 : Light Combat Aircraft Tejas in action

    No Janaab, I am not calling you names...... I am just "calling you out". :) LEVCONS have a very specific purpose, they allow the aircraft to come in to land at a reduced speed, while still retaining Lift.

    Breaking: Indian Consulate gave Rs.30 lacs to Taliban Commander to attack Bacha Khan University.Army

    Pata nahin? :crazy: It may have been transferred by "Mental Transfer"; now that seems to have overtaken Wire Transfer as the preferred means to transfer funds.

    Navy patrol boat sank off Chennai coast

    There is no parallel between being able to make a Carrier or Destroyer with being able to make these Patrol Boats. To explain further; in this contract, some Indian Yards may have bid as well. But they may not have had viable designs or JVs. Or their Commercial Bids may not have made the cut. OR...

    Tejas scripts history in Bahrain with a Stunning Demo

    Ahhh; if you are feeling desperately rushed for that, you can simply buy yourself a plane-ticket to Bahrain and see it with your own eyes. I can loan you the fare, any direct flights to Bahrain from your neck of the woods?

    Navy patrol boat sank off Chennai coast

    Whatever that may be. However, the Boatyards in SL have built up a clientele for their boats over time, which includes even the IN for the Israeli Super Dvoras. They got the business therefore, which answers your earlier question "Bhagwan jane aisi kya baat hai isme jo Lanka wale kar sakte par...

    View of Colombo from Crow's Nest..INS Vikramaditya entered SL on her 1st diplomatic assignment

    That maybe so. Or it could've been from a Harbor Escort Vessel which are usually provided when large Men O'War enter a port. The angle seems to indicate a ship/boat with a lower freeboard. Did INS Mysore dock first?
