Never seen such a depressive interview direct from the man who himself was at the helm of affairs. Crux of the interview:
  • IAF is in a bad shape with the future isnt looking good either
  • He sees the future wars as 'Swift' (Gaurav Arya didnt seem to like the choice of word obviously)
  • 42 Squadrons is just a pipe dream, with no catching up in sight
  • Interoperability between the IAF jets a total disaster with so many different systems unable to communicate with each other
  • 'Made in India' products are unreliable (speaks high about the 'Tejas' future)
  • Public sector units like HAL lack patriotism (dont believe me? go to 14:15)
  • IAF is seriously short on money to modernize.. (Good job PAF, push them harder)
  • Politicians are responsible for the bad state, they have to give us more money (passing the buck to others)
  • Blaming the west for being 'selfish' as to not sharing their technology for 'Aatmanirbharta' or localization (why should the west kill the goose that lays golden eggs?)
All this rona dhona coming from the top man who himself should be answerable for all this! I honestly feel sorry for the state of pilots under such a depressive leadership.

Good one @Shah_Deu

The others should not miss this 'cause it pretty much tell us the state of the IAF. Now obviously the Indian Members might suggest that these retired officers don't know much about current times, but seeing how dishearted he seemed regarding the IAF - potrays a even clearer picture.

Incase you missed the video above...

Thanks a infinite amount for the summary.

You should watch it, it's very satisfying to see his despair. I have a feeling Repooplick will remove the video so I saved it.

Nothing he said in the video is extreme or out of norm. You could replace IAF for PAF in that interview and 90% of the things would apply equally just as well. I'm not sure why you guys are cheering so much. In fact, what I heard is that IAF knows it's weaknesses and has been talking about them internally for a while and will eventually remedy the most critical ones.

It's good to see there are still rational minds in India.

PAF even worst.... since 1980s (today 2020) and we are stuck with f***king 70 F16s in which just 18 are 4Gen rest mid-life upgrade. On the other hand, JF17 Chinese plane... and here we are criticizing Indians. When we will going to learn that humiliating, making fun, and abuse our enemy is not good all and every time. Better to look at ourselves first. Our ****** failed to take advantage of WOT, failed to acquire aircraft in almost 2 decades btw 1985 - 2005 except F7PGs... now, some dumb*** will start telling, in fact, try to prove that JF17 would perform better than Raptor so I am not interested in any argument or discussion over this JF17 aka 8th Gen fighter of my Pakistani members. The fact of the matter is, our PAF think tanks did the same what this ex-IAF officer saying about his airforce.
