    We are providing them loan for Patrol boats they are buying, for the Flanker training they are buying and for the Kilo training.

    Best option for them now is what they are following. New ships based on Soviet Era design.

    Whoa, that's one of the most spacious destroyers I have seen, in the rear there is room for at least 2-3 times the number of BARAK-8 VLS

    Either the group of this ship designers where drunk while designing or there is something underneath that ship which is kept secret.

    I still can't believe that we only have 8VLS for Brahmos and only 16 anti-ship missiles for a 7k+ ton destroyer.

    Plus why IN didn't allowed them in Malabar yet ? Kuch to jhol hai.

    You are hitting the nail on the head my dear sir.

    Indian ships are being designed with enough space to keep adding capability yet give the crew good board. Thankfully :)

    It changes during war time. During Brasstacks, I slept on containers of 57mm gun ammo loaded in my bunk. Imagine having your backside nice and sound on live HE ammo? I had been thru that.
