  1. Developing fighter jets is a very very difficult job.Even now engine of LCA is American 404 and similarly engine of J17 is of Russian origins. But one will have to start and donot wastethe labour of 30 years. Upgrade the facilities and and should strive hard to make our own warplanes if needed with forgein collaboration. America can ground the whole fleet of F 16 while sitting in America. Nobody wants to part with high techs. Strive hard and be successful .

  2. Main problem is HAL + bureaucracy + Past generation short term thinkers. No company in the world has ever wanted to partner HAL., Because of it’s worst standards. The best example is MIG fighters, whose spare parts when manufactured by HAL brought disgrace to the fighter itself. Accidents took lives of our brave fighter pilots, but the reason had always been HAL. In the Rafael case , the same thing happened, Dassault aviation knowing the standards of HAL became reluctant. Unless there is a complete overhaul of quality standards both physically and mentally in HAL + Farsighted thinkers & bureaucrats we will have to rely entirely on off the shelf buying of aircraft and weapons.

  3. एक बाबू को बॉर्डर पर बैठा दो रजिस्टर लेकर। रोज़ का cease fire violation नोट करता रहेगा और नेताजी को बताएगा, कड़ी निंदा करने के लिए।
