  1. I trust Modi's government will do everything needed to overhaul and take our military to a whole new level

  2. What’s the latest for the $20bn MMRC requirement? Are we still going with the remaining 114 Rafale? What sort of time frames are we talking about? Or has the baseless Congress mudslinging stalled this deal as well? This children, is why we can’t have nice things…

  3. The Chinese purchase of additional Su-35s from Russia could be indicative of its inability to develop a cost-effective knock-off domestically.

  4. China always Increases fighter jets but last 6 yrs India people demand for to complete MMRCA 2 but unfortunately our government couldn't approved

  5. Why would tejas pilot jettison, on purpose, only one of the fuel tank which is already full? That fuel tank will fall straight under the carpet if PR is competent in spin control. A newspaper quoted AM Anup Raha in 2009 that he will not let his pilots get anywhere close to that aircraft.

  6. I think our army and airforce going to conduct another surgical strike inside pakistan .Because of more excerise and more defence buying and R&D massively increased .

    if Yes 👍 or comment .

  7. India should buy more Rafale or make indigenous #AMCA & #Tejasmk-2 aircraft fast track procedure as our fighter aircraft decrease year by day & Chinese modernized it's armed force by buying SU-35

  8. India needs a separate entity working in complete secrecy to develop at least 4 engines for out fighter aircraft fleet requirements. This project should not be given to HAL at any cost.

  9. Russia cares about itself. Russia doesn't care about what happens to India via military hardware it sells to China.
