The geniuses at IAF are willing to base a chopper squadron near the Pak border, but will base Tejas' first squadron in far away Tamil Nadu.

Sigh..

How long will this survive if a war will start? I hope it is well hidden otherwise these transport choppers will face more then a few problems. I surely hope apache and mki squadron will be based here in the future.

Flying ducks. They will be shot down by stinger missiles supplied by US in abundance. Taliban and paki army have merged to have a single mindset.
