It
seems
to
be
getting
hotter
and hotter.
As
the
mercury
continuesits
jour-
ney
north,
excitement
over
the
Multi
Role
Combat
Aircraft
also
seems
to
be
boiling
over.
The
IAF has
indicated
that
chances
of
doum
selection
(inviting
only
a
select
number for
flight
evaluationwhich
will
start
bythe end of May)are
very
bright, throwing
the contenders
in
a
lizzy.Tlire
guessing game hasbegun
withperiodic
leaks
in
the
media.
We
bringyouall thehard details onthemother ofall
deals.
This
will
indeed
be
a
keenly
watched
and
comment-
ed
upon competition.
Our
special
report
on the
MRCA
lists the capabilitiesof thecompetitors,
as
well
carries
an
in-depth
story
on
AESA
radar.
We
will
continue
torevisit
this
subject
with
more details
as
thetrials begin.
The
other story
we
are
looking
at
in
this
issue
is
the
recent
visit
of
the
US
special
envoy
to AfghanistanandPakistan
(AfPak),
Richard
Holbrooke
and
the
US Chairman
of
theJoint
Chiefs
of
Staff Committee,
Admiral
MikeMullen to
New Delhi. Thisis another storythat
we
will
keep
trackingregu-larly
as
Pakistan
has
made
it
clear
thatIndia
will
be
an
important
player
if
US
AfPak
policy is
to
be
successfully
implemented.
However,
in
this story
we
look
at
howthe
US
plans
to
make
Pakistan'snukes secure;
unfortunately,
at
the
same
time
making
them
dangerous
for
India.
It
is
indeed
ironic
thatwebelieve
what
the
US
thinks,that
the Taliban
will
soon overwhelm
Pakistan
and India
would
be
nexton
their
agenda.
We need
to
step
back
and
wonder
why this
scenario
is
not
troubling the
Pakistan
Army,
which through
itsproxy
civilian
government, continuesto extractmore than
hasalready
been
given
by
the
US.
The
special
report
is
an
encouragingone,
onthe
growing
relations
between
India
and
Russia.
Thisbilateralrelationship,we
believe,
comesclosest
to
a
strategic
partnership that India
has ever
had
with
any country'
We
have
our
differences,all
of
which
are
such
that
can
be
overcome.
We
have
handledthis
story bydeliberately
concentratingmore onthe
Russian
per-spective
of
the
relationship.
There
is
a
comprehensive
interview
with
the
Russianambassador
in
India,
who
has
the
distinction
of
havingspentnear-
ly
five
years
in
India.
We also
bringyou
Russian
viewpoint on
the
bilateral
defencecooperation,the cornerstoneofthe relationship.
Yet
anotherpiece
is onthe
restructured
Russian
military
forces.
Thisshouldprovidea
few
good ideas
to our armed
forces.
In addition,
we
bringyou plenty
of newson the defence
industry.Despitetheglobaleconomicmeltdown,this,
we believe,is one
Indian industry
sec-
tor,
that
will
continue
to
flourish.The
reasons
for this
are
rather
simple:India
has the means andthe needto
restructureits armed
forces,
the
Indianindustry
needs
a
makeover,and
global
defenceplayers
are
vying
for
part-nership
with
India.
We
onlyhope
thatthe
India
defence
media
respondsequallyresponsibly
to
thisgrowing
challenge.
So,
keep the
excitement
going!
