    P8I is a badass Anti submarine platform

    We should seriously consider further purchases apart from 8+4
    Coz frankly 4 Sqds of P8I sound much better than 2 sqds

    Modi has done nothing for Defence since he came to power

    This is one of a kind situation, first in the world. Hitherto nothing of such sort has happened.
    The US & India are the ONLY operators of such sophisticated submarine hunting platform.


    P-8I has Indian made IFF supplied by BEL:

    BEL supplies P-8I aircraft equipment to Boeing - The Hindu

    And the following crucial network centric device:

    BEL delivered the Indian-designed Data Link II, a communications system that will enable exchange of tactical data and messages between Indian Navy aircraft, ships and shore establishments, a Boeing statement said.
