India plans to gift obsolete weaponry to friendly countries Apr 24,2018

In a bid to boost defence cooperation, the government has asked the armed forces to compile a list of obsolete military equipment that can be “refurbished at minimal cost” and gifted to “friendly” countries, sources told The Indian Express.

IAF hits the runway again for a new fighter

IAF hits the runway again for a new fighter Apr 24,2018

The Ministry of Defence (MoD), under pressure to formally push out a Request for Information (RFI) before the DefExpo 2018 kicked off, released a rather long-winded document just five days before the expo started. The RFI had much the same effect as a wild mating call; an ensemble of hopeful suitors set off apposite and loud responses. As is the wont of mating rituals, the noises were made for the intended partner as also for other contending suitors! An RFI issued in 2004 was a single-page

Forget 1962, India now better poised to deter the Dragon

Forget 1962, India now better poised to deter the Dragon Apr 24,2018

The swift dragon can be held to a stalemate, even though it may be able to inflict some damage by breathing fire. India is militarily no longer the pushover it was during the 1962 war despite persisting critical operational and infrastructure gaps as well as the ever-expanding military asymmetry with China. This is the assessment of top Indian military commanders, who contend they are being realistic without any false bravado, even as PM Narendra Modi heads for China later this week to reset

It’s No Surprise India Finally Ditched Its Stealth Fighter Program With Russia Apr 24,2018

India has reportedly stopped working with Russia on the long-troubled Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft program, or FGFA, a shared effort that was supposed to produce an improved variant of the equally vexing Su-57 stealth fighter. Though hardly surprising, with years of reports that the Indian government has become increasingly disappointed in the project’s progress and the aircraft’s capabilities, the decision could have significant ramifications for both countries. On April 20,

Trichy” Assault Rifle Gaining Traction Among Indian Law Enforcement Apr 24,2018

After field trials and subsequent purchasing of the “Trichy” Assault Rifle (TAR) by the Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), it is being reported that other Indian Law Enforcement entities are taking an interest in the rifle as well. The 7.62x39mm TAR rifle was initially introduced almost a decade ago but appeared to have seen little success in the form that it first existed in. Essentially it appeared to be converting an FN FAL receiver into 7.62x39mm with internally produced

Aircraft Carriers still popular with powerful navies around the World

Aircraft Carriers still popular with powerful navies around the World Apr 24,2018

Aircraft carriers are “100,000 tons of diplomacy”, as Henry Kissinger once said. They provide great political strength as mobile air bases since they allow for maritime supremacy and even strikes deep inside an enemy’s territory. And despite growing criticism of their real efficiency, and alleged vulnerability, maritime powers are more than ever betting on them, especially in Asia. The foremost critic against them is their apparent unfitness for today’s asymmetric conflicts. A report
