Nice! What is the rationale behind the partial black camo on the corvettes/missile boats?

What a waste of public money. Can this president even call out one ship from another, provide any worthwhile input, appreciate the geo-political scenario.

Utter waste of money. This money will be wisely spent warding off the threat from China.

@Anon 11:43 am,

Chinese Navy has never fired a single shot in anger in any large campaign in its recent history.

The Indian Navy has an outstanding combat record against Pakistan.

The Chinese navy geographically is very far from India.Its approach to IOR is through narrow straits or through areas strategically important to several world powers.

We do not have to go and fight in China's backyard and our energy supplies are not from their areas.

To take on a navy of our size,the Chinese need a far far larger expeditionary navy than they have at present be it carrier based or locally in some bases in the IOR.
