IN is interested in an advanced contemporary version of the lightweight torpedo which is currently in production. They only ordered a small batch of those.
And we are exporting those to Myanmar. Not a good picture this. If IN backs out of Shyena why would anyone else buy it ? Rather the development could've been touted as a upgrade of the current model.

Anyway do you have any specs available with you of the ALWT ? As far as I know the Shyena is a already a modern torpedo with specs comparable to the world's best in this class. ALWT must be better then ?

:) What picture? Our services will buy whatever best suited for them. Why did Myanmar buy? Because it is good enough for their use case. Unlike army/AF, IN was kind enough to give a token order and close the project.

This is TAL which is in production.

We are developing so much avionics for Su 30 upgrade, radar itself getting ready..
Makes no sense if we don't integrate our own radar. Meteor missile and other western armaments can get integrated if it's our radar.
The MKI won't need the Meteor, SFDR will take care of our needs. Until then there's the Derby ER and K-77M.

However with extensive Indian involvement in upgrade, with radar being ready, more importantly Russian solution not being impressive..
I just hope we found a ground with Russian s to integrate our own radar.
The Russian AESA solution is pretty good. And right now it does look like MKI will be getting the AESA radar right from the beginning.

I agree, with mig 29 I saw them but I think later are with extended range ...we got the new one in jun 2019 as per news
We inducted almost 450 R-27's with extended range back in the late 90s, along with the MKI deal. Then we bought a few hundred more in 2012 and then even more last year.

Only Mig-29s used to operate the shorter range version, but I don't think those are in service anymore.

R27 er is a semi active seeker missile ( fox 1 ) means the pilot have to keep the lock until it much closer to target ( even it have a full active seeker missile ) the issues with this missile is when u do evasive manure u loose the lock missile may miss target ,unlike aim120 astra and r77 active seeker ones (fox 3) u can turn back after shooting if enemy fire against you and still u can hit the Target, and about last year purchase am not sure its r27 if I remember correct iaf plan to replace older r27 with new r77 versions so I think it will be new version r77,r27 name given by media just another diversions, like we done before nlca first landing on viki

Are we talking about r27 EA version? This seems to be active radar homing but not sure about production.both r77 and r27 are from Vympel so tech shouldn’t be a concern here.

With the expanding possibilities of data and graphics processing, the number of uses of augmented reality in the Defence is growing exponentially. Artificial Intelligence (AI) combined with Mixed Reality (MR) is becoming crucial for modern warfare. Defence systems equipped with AI and MR improve human decision-making capability and human-to-machine interaction immensely. Keeping in mind, the need of the Defence sector, a Mumbai based start-up ‘Dimension NXG’ under the brand name ‘AjnaLens’ has launched ‘AjnaBolt’- India’s first AI-powered Mixed Reality glasses for Defence. The mixed-reality glasses are designed and manufactured in India. AjnaBolt provides advanced lethality to increase survivability and thereby exponentially increasing a defence mission’s success capability. AjnaBolt can be used to upgrade fair-weather weapons to all-weather weapons, enhanced navigation and sight, advance training and simulation, etc. Its modular design helps the user to mount it on headgear or use it as standalone glasses. With many compatible software solutions, AjnaBolt can be used for various objectives not only in the field of defence but Homeland security as well.

It takes mission planning, coordination, and execution to the next level. I am sure it will not only strengthen our armed forces and make every mission more successful but will also make our nation an exporter in defence technologies.” Along with the AjnaBolt, AjnaLens has supported their offering by launching applications like AjnaHolotable App, etc. These applications would enhance the user experience by enabling users to visualize the battlefield in 3D before and during the war for planning and monitoring respectively.

DefExpo 2020: Japanese amphibious plane back on track for the Indian Navy?
A high level defence delegation led by the Director-General of Logistics from Japan is heading to the DefExpo 2020 and the focus is to put back the US-2i amphibious aircraft back on track. Confirming this a senior officer who wished to remain anonymous said that “The delegation from Japan will be meeting top Ministry of Defence officials in an effort to get the US-2i amphibious aircraft back on the table. Also, the delegation which will be in India until February 7 will meet with top naval officials to understand other projects where the Japanese companies can participate.”

Since a couple of years the purchase of 12 ShinMaywa US-2i Amphibious and Rescue (SAR) aircraft for $1.65 billion has been put on a back burner for several reasons including the lack of funds of the customer – the Indian Navy.

Both India and Japan have been trying to address issues by both sides and are looking for a positive outcome soon. A decision has been made to negotiate the deal through the government to government route and to be manufactured in India under the Make in India initiative.

As has been reported earlier, the government of Japan has also offered to set up an MRO facility in India and the possibility of exporting the aircraft to a third country. In an effort to further strengthen their Strategic Relations, both India and Japan have been trying to conclude the first defence deal. As part of this exercise during the DefExpo-2018, Mahindra Defence Systems, part of the Mahindra Group had inked an agreement with the ShinMaywa Industries for manufacturing and assembling of amphibious aircraft in India.

What are the Indian Navy and the Indian Coast Guard seeking?

The two are keen to get between 12-18 search and rescue aircraft (SAR) which would help in expanding their reach and capability.

If and when these aircraft are acquired it will help in boosting the operational logistics in strategically critical Andaman and Nicobar Islands and can also be used for landing close to the warships on high seas with the spare parts.

The two sides have been carrying on the discussions since 2011; however, have not been able to close the deal.

According to sources, the Indian Navy had first sought information about an amphibian aircraft in 2010 from Russia’s Beriev Be-200 and US/German Company Dornier for its Seastar CD2, Japanese ShinMaywa, and Canada’s Bombardier for its CL-415 platform.
