Hi, had a "cold blast" ?? after the Gripen................lucky sod.

lots of activity here: PAK-FA flew for 40 minutes today morning; 145 M-777's in pipeline...but no TOT, only lots of training with 8 Americans here for 2 years to help out, etc/ and, surprizingly no 'offsets' (unless the BAE-Mahindra JV at Faridabad gets involved); Arty trails in mid-Feb; lots of RFI's from the IA (just go to the Indian Army site), with information requested by mid-end Feb.............finally, some one waking up/or do not want to surrender the year's budget allocations........

Dear Mr. Aroor,

I really like your informative stuffs but, whats in this post??

Just a picture an you let loose bisons discussing directionlessly. Please put on some details.

What's this piece supposed to be? Just like the news channels, which are obsessed with airy captions like "Exclusive" and "Breaking News", you seem to have thought that putting in EXCLUSIVE will suffice. Oh, wait, there's an arbitrary picture too!
At least you could have put in some high sounding stuff like "according to my sources" and what not.

What a beautiful bomb kit it is. A very unique design.

so you still need a two seater jaguar to drop a guided munition.
