    Perhaps the new ones will go there. I assume. Pakistan does not have credible submarines yet. I believe.

    Lol - there were no such thing as powered aircraft in the 19th century. The Wright Brothers' first plane flew in the early years of 20th century.

    On topic, why not? The Dornier is a great little aircraft & it's very reliable! At it's heart, IAF/IN requires a small, light aircraft that can carry cargo from point A to point B. The Dornier can do that. And it has been customized in-house for many specialized roles.

    Cobras (Dorniers - Maritime Recce ac) of Indian Navy "INAS 310" were accorded a ceremonial welcome at Porbandar yesterday. Cobras based in Hansa, Goa since 1961 till date, now in a new lair. Fangs just as sharp
