Undertook a rudimentary analysis on the light #tank requirement basis data from the #IndianArmy RFI released in 2009.
Turns out the K21-105 & K21-120 tick more boxes than the Sprut SDM1 .
Moreover the K21 could be built at the @larsentoubro factory at #Hazira #Gujarat .
Did not consider Harimau due to Turkish content .
Similarly did not consider US MPF program vehicles as they're still in development.
Anders & CV90/120 due to 30+T weight restrictions .
That said the US MPF program offers two intriguing light tanks with the @BAESystemsInc M8 BUFORD & @GD_LandSystems Griffin 2.
Adding our numbers to the US requirement a run of 800 vehicles can be achieved reducing cost for both. BufordBufordGriffin 2Griffin 2

Ancient #China since at least 1600BC has followed a rule called 天命 or T'ien-ming this accords divine status to all Chinese rulers & extolls them as the son of heaven that have a mandate to rule all land below heaven .
Chinese imperial families used this rule to justify their rule for centuries. That said there was a catch .
The rule specifies that if a ruler is overthrown or the nation suffers natural disasters it is an indication heaven has withdrawn it's support .
The #CCP very cleverly follows only the first part of the diktat but not the 2nd . Following the 2nd would immediately endanger #Xitler while also putting the legacies of his predecessors into doubt.

The PIPAVAV yard with four Shachi class OPVs lying incomplete .
A visual reminder of how #anilambani mishandled the best equipped shipyard in #India into oblivion.
Those are 600T Gantry cranes , just a little smaller than the 700T Gantries used by #China at Hudong.
The Giant ABG yard at Surat , 2nd of three major private sector shipyards on sale as on date.
Smallest of the three ,the Bharati Defence yard at Ratnagiri .
Private shipbuilding in India is now pretty much limited to @larsentoubro alone .

A beautiful scene that belies the lack of modern High calibre #artilleryguns in the #IndianArmy & serves as a reminder that 21 years after the Field #artillery Rationalization plan was drafed to remedy deficiencies exposed during #Kargil they remain diminished.
Thread below
The FARP projection envisaged the acquisition of around 3000 #artillery pieces which were subdivided into 814 truck-mounted guns, 1,580 towed guns, 100 tracked self-propelled guns, 180 wheeled self-propelled guns and 145 ultra-light howitzers.
Some 2819 guns in all.
Out of this projected requirement only the requirement for ULWH ( Ultra light weight howitzers has been addressed with the ongoing acquisition of 145 @BAESystemsInc @MahindraRise M777 155/39 guns.
There is some chatter on an additional 290 gun requirement that remains open.

Bill introduced in #US Congress ( Lok Sabha) to declare the #USA will consider #Tibet as a free independent nation separate from #China . Interesting to note the proposal has come from a Republican Congressman @RepScottPerry who is a former @USArmy Brigadier General.
If & when this passes will open up assistance funding & support for the #Tibetans in exile in #India & elsewhere.
Will also open up routes for the #USA to sanction #China & any other nation ( #Pakistan ) that uses an illegal #CPEC /route passing through occupied #Tibet.
As I've said on a different fora earlier #India is key to helping rebuild #Tibet as a free nation for #Tibetans . I believe the @PMOIndia would've already started working on modalities with HH the @DalaiLama & the Govt of #Tibet in exile at Dharamshala & Bylakuppe.

The market value of @embraer has tumbled to a mere $1.1Bn . If the @PMOIndia works quickly to use the bonhomie between @narendramodi & @jairbolsonaro to acquire a 70% stake here now it could give #India a major leg into civilian airliner manufacturing fast…
The #Aircraft market could be down now but it will begin to pick up as herd immunity & vaccines kick in . Acquiring @Embraer could give #India a domestic manufacturer for the UDAN project . Also the KC390 would be a readymade MTA for the @IAF_MCC .
There are market predictions which indicate #India will need more than 1000 short range airliners to serve a growing Tier 2&3 city airports by 2035 . At an average price of $50Mn today that's nearly $50Bn if we import these jets.
Sir @narendramodi ,this is a golden opportunity.
