This is not true when you look at the CAPX allocation for navy. It's all procurement procedure failure. Be it Minesweeper,SSKs or helicopters.We are cutting down P8I, Ka31 purchase due to CAPEX strains, we have 0 Minesweepers, Submarine arm is growing ancient, Helicopters is a mess, not enough funds to buy even MALE surveillance platforms and among all this an aircraft carrier.
Do we realise that the 26 Fighter Jet procurement will cost us somewhere between 5-6 billion USD minimum.
We need to have some sense for the procurement plans.
