I guess the war in Ukraine have scared india as well, they realized their russian weapons wont be a match for chinese or even Pakistani. I guess the big wakeup slap was 27 feb.
Actually Chinese is selling the Russian copy of military weapons to Pakistan.... it does not make much difference.
Before 2000, USA was not ready to transfer any latest military types of equipment to India... Pakistan was getting the all benefits.
Now, since the situation has improved... Everyone wants to sell their latest products to India - We will hunt for the best available in the world market.
If Russia will offer which is best then we will go for it, the same case with others.
big wakeup slap was 27 feb.... how people do enjoy and feel proud of such a small incident.
