    That article is an old one. Do you think Indian military is the only one with such issues. Steps have been taken to fix both issues. :pleasantry:

    (You) How did you come to know abt that, did the Army/Airforce/Navy Chief call you personally

    Now when was the 2008 Mumbai attack. I dont want to ask hard questions. Do you think your Army/Airforce/Navy Chief needed to me personally to figure out you were not ready, your own military told your goverment they were not ready, look it up.

    Do you think that would have helped in 2008.

    I can see India needing to purchase tanks, even tank sights, Russia buys those from the French and sells them to you all, but 1 billion in ammo.???????

    I am curious does any thing seem odd to you all about news like this.

    India considers buying additional Russian made T-90Cs, while delaying production of the locally assembled. India considers buying 300 upgraded T-90C tanks to be produced by Uralvagonzavod in Nizhni Tagil, Russia for $866 million during two years. Originally, the tanks were to be assembled in India, from Russian delivered kits. According to Russian sources, the Indian plant licensed to produce the tanks has not yet built the capacity to ramp up serial production.

    In 2001 India agreed to buy up to a thousand T-90C tanks, to be locally assembled at the Indian tank factory located at Avadi. The agreement included the delivery of 124 tanks to be assembled in Russia, and 186 kits, to be assembled in India. When explaining the decision to buy a consignment of ready-made tanks in Russia, Singh said India hadn’t managed to master the line assembly work for some key devices of the tanks and the coordination with Russia’s suppliers was rather poor.


    This is 2013 I think.

    Yes regarding that, Indian military is now powerful unlike in 1962 to stop any aggression by China.

    Did you look at those figures and figure out which ones are China and which ones are Indian?

    You might want to think a little harder.

    1962 is far past. And India lost that war because and only because of Nehru's idiotic policies.
