    Israel didn't refuse,even the factory was set up in anticipation of the deal!
    But domestic alternatives must be prioritized if available.Hopefully the same happens with this stupid SE deal.

    Spike was clearly expensive deal, I am happy that MoD also declined USA alternative, that should shut some mouth here who were claiming of US hands.

    It is a good step in 'rightest' direction, lets hope DRDO along with pvt players delivers on the promise and get one more feather in their hat.

    Meanwhile, the fatty babus of ordnance factory have already started sweating as their job is slowly going in danger zone.

    Javelin was rejected even before Spike because of lack of ToT.
    I didn t suggest for us to buy Javelin.
    probably u mistook my post.

    My assumptions are based on USA habit of doing all these things to get business., nothing else.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


    Sorry ... I like this statement .. too ticklish.


    Pssst .....BDL was licensed to produce Konkurs M, a tandem warhead ATGM. Yet, India had to purchase 10,000 of the same from Russia as BDL failed to meet the demand :to_pick_ones_nose:

    I am very sure our industry is catching up :tongue:

    I think the main company is a private company called VEM Technologies. BDL is a supplier. As is Raytheon for the seeker.

    I meant on the catching up. They can catch up. They are bright. But conversion to performance is interesting.

    On topic, strangely no comment from Kalyani Rafale consortium:)

    I think it should be corrected as Kalyani-Rafael Consortium that is Kalyani Rafael Advanced Systems ( KRAS)

    This is too funny now !!! .... the MoD should OFFICIALLY now clarify that these articles are true or not!

    Honestly i do hate such articles and there so called sources always ruins the narrative and just causes confusion ... Case and point - when the BAE and HAL revealed the Advance Hawk - We immediately get a BS article that the IAF has rejected it!!! .... pure BS!
