    With D. Trump in the picture, do you think that India-US relations will be the same or better?

    Very true. A big consideration for the Indian Navy.

    Hello Shiv, nice to have you here. Considering the problems Pak is having with Iran, Afghanistan and India on its borders, do you think there is some behind the scenes work going on between these three countries focused around Baluchistan and CPEC ?

    Well, its still a pretty fairytale relationship in many ways! The deeply flawed and lopsided FGFA program is set to survive the most amazing turbulence and make it out alive! The Make in India light chopper deal is on. Many others in the arms space. Bundle all that up with nuclear kit for Kudankulam, and you've got a pretty steady relationship, I'd say. I hope you saw the looks on the faces of Putin and Modi yesterday :D

    I'm suspicious of anyone who says they know anything about what things will be like under Trump. The one thing he has demonstrated is his unending unpredictability. We need to be cautious and watchful about the Donald. He isn't a foe, he isn't a friend. Yet.

    @SHIV AROOR
    Welcome to the forum.

    How would you rate Parrikar as RM? Any guesses on who will be our next RM?

    A question beyond defence: on Current status of Media: What is your view on current status of Indian media (i mean the english ) Where in for a normal viewer it feels like they have been divided in 2 sections (especially with introduction of new channels).... Left and Right..... Dont you think this is a bad trend is being set?

    Hello Mr.Shiv. welcome to the forum. My question is regarding Maj Gogoi incident. Why can't any TV channel or newspapers or magazines like yours have not been able to trace the poll officials those who were saved by Maj Gogoi and get their point of view or the situation over there?

    And today is my birthday!:mrgreen:

    @SHIV AROOR Assuming the Govt. is planning to have an RM, unless Modi is personally over seeing Defense.

    A deal could be signed this financial year. I hear there's a huge amount of back and forth currently on between the two sides. Typically difficult dealing with the Russians when you're locking down costs.

    Hello @SHIV AROOR
    People always said future wars would be fought for water in the 21st century. In 2005 Pakistan crossed water scarcity line and things are getting worse for them over the years. It is estimated that water scarcity would be effecting their economy from 2019 onwards. pak fauj might start a small conflict like kargil to prove their importantance. Do you think we are heading that way for a small skirmish in The coming years? And if we are, are we prepared for such a situation?

    @SHIV AROOR
    Regarding the FGFA programme, what is the current status?
    There were several engine flameouts, in the initial stages of PAK-FA. If my information is correct, FGFA will be a twin seater version of PAK-FA, right?
    Can you shed some light on the differences that Indian version will have from the original PAK-FA other than it being a twin-seater?
    Also, if PAK-FA is roughly compared to Chinese 5th gen fighters, how does PAK-FA fare against them in terms of range, avionics, weapons and of course stealth?
    Is PAK-FA's AESA able to detect other stealth aircraft?
