    All the enemies, potential or real, are conviniently located in Asia.


    :)


    hence no need for BMs.


    India could certainly convert the PLSV or GLSV into a BM but why???


    It would be a waste of money when we need to do many more things with upgrading the range of Agni series.

    We already possess the technology, we have had 3 successful GSLV launches so far since 2001 and last year successfully fired the cryogenic engine. So we are good to go. We just haven't decided to do it yet.

    India's ballistic missile programme is aimed at China and Pakistan with flexibility sought vs other Muslim countries in the Mid East just in case.

    Indian politicians have never even thought beyound this.

    The IAF had a few problems with the MK which had a primitive ground attack capability, where did you get this MKI news from and could you be more specific?

    Shows how much Russian's know there own aircrafts :p They say there multi-role to get attention when they know its mostly an air superiority fighter (well at least the best role it is at). ;)

    same with plaaf with su-30mkk's ground attack role. I guess it is just painful experiences over unproven Russian designs.

    As a matter of fact, the US is not happy to see any other nuclear armed country other than itself.

    The way I see it,

    U.S. Perspective:
    Use India and Russia to nip china's threat potential in the bud. use Pakistan vs India to keep india in check.

    Russian perspecitve:
    Use India to nip china's threat, continue to use India as great buyer, continue to warm up with U.S.

    Indian perspective:
    Use U.S. and Russia to keep china checked. use russia mainly against pakistan. use u.s. for super tech and nuke tech.

    one feels that this may become apparent with the MRCA deal which could be split between U.S. and Russia (france has already been taken care of with scorpene and airbus deals)

    Regards,
    uSs.

    ICBM is in cold storage for a decade now. Dont know will it be restarted. India needs a missile covering whole of china & to deploy some of those near indo-china border, nothing more[5000-7500km]. Our GSLV can be converted into ICBM if the need be with modifications.

    Indian needs to play it right if it wants to be the next power in Asia. It needs to deal with US and Russia and China in a carefully planned way. Clearly, US and Russia/China are the two sides trying to get India to side with them. For strategic reasons, India will probably side with both sides rather than just the one side.
    Well US & Russia are itself cosying up with each other, so its not a major concern.
