MoD/HAL team in Israel

A team led by Secretary (Defence Production) Pradeep Kumar is currently in Israel on an official visit. HAL chairman Ashok K Baweja is also on the trip. Sources say that Baweja's agenda in the country includes talks with IAI on formalising a partnership agreement for the Chetak naval rotary UAV (NRUAV), developed by IAI, including a demonstration. Also on the agenda by the MoD team is talks with IMI for licensed production of assault rifles and night sights. The team will meet with most other Israeli weapons manufacturers as well.

One very important Item is missing in the above list...is EL/M-2052 which is being considerd for LCA.

Mondo confusion in this list.
Many items are repeats of the same line items in the list (eg MRSAM and Barak-2), others are plain wrong and many other small mistakes. Anyways enjoy yourself guys, speculating over all this.

How about Arjun Mark-II related cooperation?

If anyone is still guessing, it is Tamil comments typed in English.

Shiv, do u know tamil? If not, I can translate, though there is nothing technical there is a lot of personal obscenity.

The items are not repeats. They are either for follow-on orders, or proposed. The list is an official list that the MoD made for the MEA after it was requested to do so last year. And inaccuracies (please point them out!) would be the MoD's own in that case, though i haven't noticed any in the list...

shiv, if you havent noticed inaccuracies...wow, there goes your attention to detail doesnt it?

work on it a bit and you'll realise how stupid some repeats are, including what i pointed out.

in fact, your official source is probably out of date or as clueless as this list.

shiv- dont speculate. you arent really helping your country by being a twat.

last anon. grow some balls and argue properly. if there's something to point out, point it out. if you have something personal against aroor, take your nutsack (or lack thereof) elsewhere. if aroor suffers from lack of attention to detail, correct it. by being unpleasant and stupid, you are sounding like a communist. keep the discussion real, instead of taking the short-cut and being a jackass.

if you are so sure that the list provided here is wrong, why not give us a correct one that you claim to know! you will be doing all a great service.

ANON@12:09 am, aka shiv aroor, i have balls and they are nice and round. want a taste? or why are you obsessed with my nutsack? have the folks at headlines today snipped urs off?
if you post a made up list on the internet and try to make do with false information, its well within our right to say its so. idiot, first start posting under your own name when you get hysterical and second, post correct information.

ciao

anon@12:13, thats what aroor wants - he is using such made up information and attacks on drdo to get real information from gullible people. i have been watching with interest how he works. qn is, why play his game. ask his colleagues, he is quite slimy piece of work.
nothing personal but you all need to grow up, and learn "loose lips sink ships"

take that comment on nirbhay and software btw. everyone knows of mtcr. now why did aroor post that as anon (that was him btw, his denials apart), so that some enthu youngster from drdo or somewhere comes and posts more data on nirbhay saying no sir, the software is this, developed here. aroor gets his scoop, u all wave your hands, and other ppl know exactly what the limits of india can make and cannot. why else do u think he posts articles by sengupta and his frequent attacks on drdo? one is ego, the other is to get bakras (goats) to reveal information.

dont be kids guys, bragging about indian programs that too strategic one is stupid.

like i said before, that list is speculation. spend 15 mins on google and u can make 3 times that list.
