Indian defense
« on: December 30, 2020, 04:11:59 PM »
So found this youtube channel a couple month ago.
Pretty interesting if you wants to find out what is happening to the indian defence force, in regards to upgrading etc.

These guys are not messing around atm, so give them a decade or so and they will be a superpower to recond with.

Somebody tell the Brits they're still using tanks.  ;)

Interesting dive into the realm of India's small-arms issues:
https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2020/12/28/making-sense-of-indias-small-arms-procurement-nightmare/

Yeah, one of the problems that India has fazed is that historically pretty much all arms developement has been done by government owned companies.
The current PM is changing this though so India wants to rely more on coorporation between private and government companies domestic and abroad, but ofcourse due to pressure from union its a slow proces.

Funny thing is. If they do purchase the Armada tank, they will have 15 times as many in operation as Russia  :)
