Seems like its coming to unravel IA is planning to buy 354 new T-90MS
Oh, what pleasure. what we have here ?
Our dear ex Col. Ajai Shukla who return the the attack of the hated T-90S (and of the "inept and corrupt" Indian Army's Gotha) with its ,at best ,imaginative thesis
We are still all anxiously hanging on ,since more than two years and half, the names of any Indian Army's official confirming a single word of its reconstruction of the comparative trial of Arjun and T-90S of Febraury 2010.
Above all because that will allow our Ajai to render aware of the facts....the same DRDO chief V.K. Saraswat
Moreover DRDO could adjourn the news of its own journal and finally announce that its product had offered better in-field performances in respect to the imported T-90S; but you know to claim OFFICIALLY a similar thing on your product the fact must happen
and this is not a secondary detail ...
Naturally,in the meantime, our Ajai would have perhaps managed to find a way to distinguish a T-90 from a T-72 (a MBT on which it has supposedly operated !!!). Brief advice
for the really knowledgeable persons in MBT field : do NOT read
the elementary school allegations produced by our Shukla in this "article", it can be very harmful for your cardiovascular health.
Its great luck is that Uralvagonzavod don't care, or maybe to even know, of its microscopic niche of lobbying against Russian products(in particular Uralvagonzavod's T-90S) in favour of American-built ones also also because up to this time, it has failed in its work
The other reason is that even the mere attention by part of Uralvagonzavod
with an official response could offer to it that degree of "relevance" or "legitimation" that is negated to it by the same indifference of the same Indian Army representaives
Is my firm convinction that must exist a sort of largely shared genetic heritage between this Colonel and another ,by now, infamous Colonel : the legendary Col. Fornof
In facts both are : almost totally obvlious of any technical knowledge
(the Su-30MKI with Tumansky engines and the MiG-21 Bison with Elta radar are true immortal pearls) an incredible creativity in reconstruction of the facts
(Fornof's overturning of the Red Flag 2008 events are one of the most comical samples of clumsy intellectual dishonesty of whole history) and both are cited as a source by a mountain of naive or scarcely informed secondary sources
