you are so happy and definitely out of shape. WTF it does with China weapons?No, we can't buy state of the art weapons from China/Pakistan.
How could you last 3944 posts with mindset?Those reverse engineered cr@p - who wants those when we can buy the originals?
like a redneck going shopping in the city then Buying too much dampen your health pretty much....India is one of the rare country who can buy any kind of weapon from US and Russia also Israel, France UK, Germany etc......luxury is ours....and we are having fun in shopping...
good exmaple of diversification then, comes the with the maintenance predicament....whatever they love to spill money all over the world.Nah, russia still has the large chunk of the pie. Anyway i think India is trying to diversify its weapon inventory so that other countries do not dictate them the terms
Mi lost to chinooks? IAF want to look cool or they want some hardcore helis? Everybody knows Mi are far superior than chinooks. Chinook is also good looking beast but Mi is the best. I thought attack helis from usa and heavy lift from russia this would have been far good decision. Now it is totally like pissing russians off
Seem India is shifting to buy more and more USA weapons, Russian must get pissed off .
"The present contract is for 15 such multi-mission helicopters. The Chinook bid was lower both in terms of initial direct acquisition cost as well as life cycle cost. The contract negotiation committee will now finalize the deal for the Chinook," said a source.
