"The FBI did conduct a probe in America as well as London, but could not crack the case"

The DRDO has not been able to buy that equipment since that episode...."


...looks like the Anericans and the British are complicit in derailing the LCA..THEY WILL FAIL

The consignment for sure must have gone back to the originator or China / Pakistan.

That much for these DRDO walas !!

Pratik Das said...

The DRDO chief proclaimed that we needn't be self-reliant in every aspect in this globalised economy.

Wonder what he thinks now.

If he says something analogous to Chidambaram and Rahul claiming that the Mumbai blasts are to be expected because you can only stop 99% of terrorist incidents then that's loser talk.

Are yeh toh ek na ek din hona hi tha. Pichle 15 saalo se hamare netao ne Aero India expo ke dauraan lagataar ailaan karta raha ki yeh sabhi cheezeh swadeshi hain. Sabhi deshvaasiyon ko gumraah aur dishabhool (Anna hazare-patented term) kar rahe thein. Akhir main haqeeqat bahaar nikal ayaa. Ise kehetein hain kudrat ka karishma. Akhir mein sach ki hi jeet hoti hain. Pichle 63 saalo se aisa hi hua ata raha hai aur agle kuch saalo tak aisaa hi chalta rahega. Lekin zyada chinta karne ki avvashakta nahin, kyoki Bharat Maa ke paas BrahMos se bhi zyada khatarnaak hatyaar hai aur woh hai Baba Ramdev ka Brahmastra, jiski tasweer hamare pyare aur priya mitre paseene se latpat Shiv Aroorji ne li thi kuch haftoon pehelein aur jiske baadh kisi jaahil janvaar ne Shivji ka SoniErcisson cellphone Ramlila Maidan se chura liya. Are agar cellphone hi churana that toh Amar Singh ya Anil Ambani ya Digvijay Singh ka cellphone churaya liya hota, Shivji jaisa ek honhaar aur nyay paalan karne waleh nagrik ka cellphone churane ki kya avvashakta thi? Aur FIR darj karne ke baawajoodh aaj tak naa Delhi Police aur naa hi NTRO ke guptcharoon aur Heron UAV ne chor to giraftaar kar seka. Yehi hai desh kaa buraa haal. Khair, jo hua so hua, aaj Id hai aur aaj raat main ek khoobsoorat Mohtarmah se sath ek 5-star Hotel ke discotheque mein jaaungaa jahaan Ladies Night hogi, aur jashn manaaunga. Aur Prahbudeva jaisa nachne ka taraana hoga yeh: Muqaabalah Subhanallah Laila…O Laila! Aap sabhi ko Id Mubarak Ho!

Just two things to say-
1- It would be unfair to blame DRDO for missing of parts by american airlines in 2008.
2- Obviously an attempt by USA to keep us dependent on their fighter planes. Guess they weren't expecting to lose MRCA.

The interesting part is are these supposed to be imported??

What other foreign parts do we have for which we are so dependent, and lost is lost what did they do to make good, two years was not enough time??

To All: Apparently the missing LCA components hailed from MOOG Inc. Here's the website: http://www.moog.com/markets/aircraft/military-aircraft/fighter-trainer/

@Pratik Das 1:18PM Rahul Gandhi said the obvious, it is impossible to stop 100% of the attacks. India share a large border with hostile countries, which USA does not have to deal with. US shares borders with Canada and Mexico, both friendly countries. Those countries make sure that terrorists do not infiltrate into US.

Let us give credit to our intelligence agencies, while acknowledging that more needs to be done. One of the biggest problem with our intelligence gathering is we talk and disclose too much. We should Never disclose our methods and especially the tips we receive for plots against us.

We should only say that "the tip was an inside source." That way there would be more confusion and discord amongst the terrorists. We gain nothing by disclosing intercepted communications, the terrorists simply develop new communication methods etc. Follow countries like Israel, Mossad never ever discuss operational details.

Consignment gets lost so its definitely DRDO's fault what lahori logic is that ? wah bhai wah desi DDM !!!

Abid said...

As the missing parts are essential components for setting up training & assimilation of Tegaj flight characteristics; our good old faithful neighbors may need to know how LCA performs.
They simply keenly watched all sources of supplies for Tejas project, and then activated their intelligence agencies.
We failed to perform counter intelligence.
Now as they have got the knowhow, there is no use of going ahead with current Tejas configuration. We shall now push our best resources, compel IIT engineers to immediately change the flight profile, twice enhance the combat capablities of this aircraft. Its doesn bear any significance whether the Tejas has indegenous or imported components. Only matter is its competency and superiority in all aspects than any thing in inventory with our good old bas****ds, sh**eaters neighbors.

Piyamaanullah, Som Bhai

Has indian defence security is so poor, something or else gets missing, hope this is not a joke. Take it seriously. China is rapidly progressing its defence structure. So be strict.

The air force has ordered 40 Tejas Mark-I aircrafts, with two such planes expected to be ready for induction by March 2012. A total of Rs. 5,777 crore was sanctioned to the IAF for the development of Tejas.
