    Makes about as much sense as India betting on Russia and HAL.

    if we have a look on China then it has been copying/cloning russian arms for a very long time. for example of SU27, which is still one of the front line aircraft of world and China copied/cloned it as J11. but in case of India, India got Russian best 4++ Super Sukhoi SU30mki with full tech transfer from raw to product. but if you want the same from US then its simply not possible, while US's best F15 is itself fit in comparison with SU35/SU30mki. (as we find F22 just a 'strategic deterrence' for US, which can be compared to prototypes of PAK FA/J20 to date only.)........

    India get all the best defense techs from Russia which were rare for China for more than a century. russia also had full tech support in missile technology like how they have the fastest and finest missile, Brahmos, its name based on Moscow river and Brahmaputra rivers. full tech transfer of Russian best T90 tanks, russian top gun Akula-2 nuclear submarine is was signed as a secret deal, and also it has offered its best stealth submarines for Indian Project75I with full tech transfer itself. full support in Space Research, in nuclear technology including recent deal to transfer reprocessing techs for nuclear reactors etc.......

    and on the other hand, US believes in a world which would work under it. US simply doesn't recognize territory of those countries who dont work under their White/Christian/Western belief, which is mainly intended to colonize rest of the world to ensure luxury life of Western people in either way, and here the problem exists......... US doesn't sell any arm with full tech transfer, otherwise India might have considered F35/JSF also for M-MRCA but US was never agreed to transfer its key techs, like how Rafale or EFT Typhoon or Mig35 was on offer. same you find in case of transport aircrafts, P8I, GE engine, Apache while India even pay much higher price for these defence arms than what its other customers pay, and around twice than its making cost in US also. in short, Russia helps India to have production lines of arms/products in India itself while US always wants to be in the position to sell its products/defence arms to India to feed its workers...........

    also, US always tried to force India to sign NPT to accept 5 countries as police of the world under their White/Christian/Western belief, while russia always had support for a nuclear power India on the ground of its non-NPT signatory stand. we got a news recently that Sunita Williams did put Indian Flag in space while Indians want an Indian citizen from ISRO would put Indian flag in space, like how Chandrayan of ISRO did put Indian flag on moon in 2008....

    in short, Indians dont want to become a 'liberal-colonized' country of US whose best Indian talent would work for US to help its citizen have luxury life, leaving rest of people based in India dreaming to go to Western nations only. Indians want to make India a place for whom rest of the world dream for. India wants to become a country who would sell the high techs to Western nations in future, like how China is doing pretty good in this regard. Indians dream for a day when high energy consuming jobs will finally be transferred to US/West, making India a country which would sell high tech products in future and yes India is doing pretty good in achieving its dream of having higher success in future. while we find US always willing to resist intentions of India to make India a very successful country in future, due to their White/Christian/Western belief, to fulfill its intentions to 'liberal-colonized' rest of the world including India to maintain flow of money to US/West in either way to maintain luxury life of those people who are certainly not deserving the status they have. Indians dont want those under high school passed western nationals to Rule the world who have only one way to maintain luxury life, that is to organize different wars, full armed/political wars/economical wars etc.

    Indians find 'Natural Economic Order' of the World as below, and they just have to resist US/West to get their economic status they had for centuries.........:meeting:

    In the real world Indias expenditures are 8th in spite of the fact they have a massive area to protect, a massive number of soldiers and personnel to support and a massive amount of corruption. Recently a number of generals were implicated in some military land swindals and when the leadership of the military is engaged in corruption it then justfies corruption allways to the lower ranks. A lot of Indias military is based on the Russian model where even the lower officers take bribes from soldiers so they can avoid crap details.

    Sir, one day I clearly said that 'success of India' is hidden in success of China itself. our natural economic order of world for over 20 centuries is as below, Indian GDP was on top till the 15th century and again came on the top by 17th century with sharing the top two spot with China till 18th century (check the table). but then the Western War Champions organized different wars and both of these two came down together in 19th and 20th century. and again we find both of these two going up together. and I would like to clearly state that China will always share the top two ranks with India, or both of these will come down together to serve intentions of Western War Champions. and, dont worry for the rank 1 position, I hope India would get the first economic rank, the highest GDP size, by 2050. just keep China leading mid this century with a hope that it would clear all the Western hurdles for India till 2050 :cheers:

    AA, SIPRI is one of the most reputed source of information regarding defense expenditure. so please let us know, what exactly you understand with Defense Expenditure based on Purchasing Power Parity, thanks....

    (remember, Indian Capital Expenditure is only 40% of its total defense budget, with having production line of most of the top arms in India itself, like of SU30mki, T90 tanks, purchase of home made submarines, guns, missiles and other defence arms etc. so I find measuring the defence budget in PPP term is a quite right way in case of the country like India :yes:)

    Even by your figures India is only spending half of what China spends and India is produceing much more of their military equipment then India and in additon China is hideing much more of their investment in the military then India, I suspect China is spending 4 times as much as India on their military because they are worried about a conflict witht the USA.

    It is interesting that USA spending is almost half its ever increasing debt. They would rather focus on unnecessary and unrequired projects such as F-35 and get themselves into bigger debt than using the same for public welfare

    It does kind of remind me of a Joke...... An optimist is someone who falls off the Empire State Building, and after 50 floors says, 'So far so good!'

    Does not mean much when you take into account in the past there were 100 million people each in India and China and only 1 million in the USA or 7 million in the UK.

    Now how does that really connect here? I think that does apply to LOCKHEED MARTIN dude.. So far we have 2400 orders so far so good. But like the example you quoted.... seems how the optimism will end is known.. just matter of time..
