Anonymous@7:39pm - You've got to be f**king kidding me?

Close to €1billion is being spent on development and procurement of 5 aircraft. Its slated to be a replacement for Luftwaffe's Dassault-Breguet Atlantique. In a time when Europe is begging and borrowing, this is an expensive toy. Target practice even for those cold war era SAMs.

Anyway, lets stop cracking jokes. Life in the hindu-pak region is not worth that much ;)

I guess you guys are not aware of our Rustom. India is secretly developing something very similar to this UAV. We only need to look at the mini gas turbine engine that India is developing to know it's applications.

Anon@12.27PM Pakistan is a failed country projected to break up by 2015, whereas same study projects India consolidating it's position as an emerging superpower.Here intelligence gathering platforms will play a vital role in securing India's economic and strategic interests.
Life in Indo Pak border may not be worth more than 1 bn$. But, India's strategic interests now stretches from Persian Gulf to Straits of Malacca.To cover such a wide area you will need such birds.
