That report is quoting a figure out of thin air. The Army has 4 regiments. Each has around 60-70 ready to fire and 30-40 reloads. Even I consider 100% reloads then also all the 4 regiments together have only 600 units.Seems you are not updated on Brahmos inventory.... Army , Air force and Navy combined today possess more than 5000 plus units...... Not to mention production rate can be doubled in case of war like crisis....
And there is nothing to forget about China... We are certainly not that weak as it is made to look like in front of China.... I respect you but sometimes it seems you unnecessarily try to please enemies like that Praveen sawane.... Maybe you fear about your ban.....
5000 will be 2.5x the estimated CMs China is likely to have along our LAC. That is unrealistic.
You can look for the budgets for each regiments and their infrastructure. They are like 300 million USD. Which actually coincide with my calculations if you take the cost of 1 unit of Brahmos to be 3-4 million USD a piece.
I am realistic and instead of going for the headlines I actually prefer to read.
The IAF and MoD top brass needs to understand that it's impossible to licence build a modern fighter jet. Only then things will move forward. And it's not only for fighter jets. Submarines, Minesweepers, Helicopters for Navy, AWACS, Tankers and Fighters for IAF , BPJs, Assault Rifles, Howitzers for Army.Chiiwala is taking this indigenous push to far and compromising the armed forces. 150+ 4.5 gen aircraft need to be bought asap, possibly even negotiations started to somehow join the F-35 program, even though that might be daydreaming. Only bhakts of the highest order have any hope from Teja aircraft, by the time Teja mk2 arrives in sufficient numbers it will already be obsolete and i seriously doubt India's ability to build a 5th gen aircraft with such a tiny budget. All budget for Teja should be directed towards AMCA if there is to be any hope for timely induction, although even that will most likely not be enough.
Its lot of talk actually but nothing much in truth.
