Taking bets now. Will Turks build a indigenous submarine before we licence build a foreign design ?
Likely as they fight war more often & actively interested in both military expansion & export opportunity. So compared to us their commitment is turning out way more absolute.
I absolutely do not understand how Govt keep losing the initiative shown after 2019, towing the Aatmanirbharta line as the only parameter & not considering time as an important factor. Lots of fund released for idex challenge etc but same high level funding should be applied to DRDO & other labs as well, those which have to cater for both research & pension in its budgets & the pension scheme takes away the research activity fund. Read a few days ago about parliament being reminded of lack of funding compared to GDP. This is the state of things.
