Gaurav , let me correct a few of these misgivings . The SU 30 MKI is by far the most capable and the most advanced 4++ fighter deployed anywhere in the world , not just in Asia . Now while British and US Air Force officers will probably be fired for accepting this , they have more than once accepted this in private . The former chief of the Royal Air Force infact went to great lengths to take a flight in the SU 30MKI .

No .The Barak-2 missiles are to equip the three guided missile destroyers of the Project 15A class and Barak 8 is still under development . We do NOT have a three tire air defense system in place yet . Except maybe for V SHORADs which we have in plenty ( though a good percentage needs to be upgraded) . Prithvi BMD can be deployed in Delhi & Mumbai (according to DRDO) at short notice.
Akash MK1 is already operational and MK2 is currently being tested. DRDO is increasing the range of Akash by using a better composite booster with lengthened booster section

Not true dear . Mirage 2000/5 are escorted by Mig 29s not Mig 21s . That's what interceptors like Mig 29 are for . Just like the US uses the F 15 or F 22 to escort their F 16s and F 18s .

logistical support from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
Wasn't his waiting to happen . The ex Army Chief had already stated that 97% of India's Air Defense has become obsolete and needs immediate upgradation . Instead of fixing the problem , GOI decided to malign the Army chief and forced him to resign .
