    Apart from incompetence of the government, I somehow get the feeling that they have a big budget problem now. There is a sudden interest away from MII and pushing privat sector as it seems. This is a major blow for Kalyani, Tata had hopes for additional Syder SAM orders and asking IAF to consider LCA instead of their own SE MMRCA tender, which would be another blow for TATA, ADANI and the MII marketing, all points in that direction. Is the government feeling the effect of their economic policies?


    P.S. IA now has no ATGMs for their combat helicopters as well as their ground forces. That's support of the forces at it's best!

    Will fully support the decision of @DefenceMinIndia to cancel the import of VSHORADS and ATGMs, if that indeed be the case. @DRDO_India's missile autonomy mission needs to take care of these requirements indigenously & this can be done in a relatively short period of time.

    Spike deal has 2 portions i believe , one bought off the shelf ..

    One MII..

    From the Israeli link given above, process of making it in India is already set in motion.
    I don't think they ll cancel it at this stage , unless there is significant reasons.

    What Next For India’s VSHORADS Air Defence Contest?

    India’s ambitious Very Short Range Air Defence System (VSHORADS) contest, which aims to replace legacy vintage Igla MANPADS systems in service stands at a critical cross-road that has a steep sense of deja vu washing over the Indian Army. Six years after the contest began (for the second time), chronic ambiguity continues on where things are headed.

    The $6 billion VSHORADS programme looks to equip the Indian armed forces with brand new three-man portable short range air defence systems: the three way contest has Saab’s RBS 70 NG, MBDA’s Mistral and Russia’s KB Mashinostroyeniya Igla-S squaring off to license build and supply 800 systems and over 5,000 missiles making it one of the largest short-range air defence programmes in the world.
