The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Mmm it will be a while yet.
  2. Considering BAE are not in the equation there, do you think it will be operational before, or after ours?
  3. Three years behind schedule.

    Double the original projected budget and they will have emulated the standard British defence contract business model.
  4. Mmmmhhhh...looks like BAE have an Indian subsiduary!
  5. I am currently in a hotel in Mumbai and the missile launch was all over the local news this morning, that and the fact that aparently Pakistan armed forces have violated the cease fire between the two countries 5 time in the last 48 hours. Only seeing one side obviously!
  6. Hows a normal Military capability upping the ante ?
  7. It will probably sink shortly after its finished judging by Indian engineering.
  8. Normal you say! Aircraft carriers and nuclear missile launchers may be normal in your trainset, but to me they are a deffo step up from the rusty SMLE!
  9. 70% rebuilt within 9 years is still doing better than the cake and arse party that is the QEII project. Announced in 1998 and still not floating ?
  10. Well someone needs to tell their IT dept then.
  11. Ah, that's different- That's a BRITISH cake and Arrse party.
    The Indians have mastered the art of buying old, duff kit, and at great expense and time, getting it to work again.
    We, on the other hand, are world leaders in procuring brand new, state of the art late and duff kit and then, at great expense, getting it to work in time to sell it on to the Indians.

    There' s no comparison.
