Re: India's Hawk advanced trainer aircraft to be converted into combat version ready for actual war

since india is going to make 160 of these aircraft , weaponizing them could prove mighty handy in case of war . our air force could get an additional 160 combat aircraft---though of course they are short range aircraft with relatively limited weapons load carrying capability .

most probably they will be armed with the ASRAAM ( ADVANCED SHORT RANGE AIR TO AIR MISSILE ) along with air to air canons for air combat and also brimstone precision guided surface attack missile for ground strike . also with laser guided bombs guided by israeli laser designator . also unguided bombs and rockets .

It can carry 1000kg warheads: Prithvi II missile test-fired in Odisha

India on Tuesday test-fired its indigenously developed Prithvi II missile -- capable of carrying 500kg -1000kg of warheads -- as part of a user trial by the army from a test range at Chandipur.

The missile test was carried out from a mobile launcher from launch complex-3 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at about 1000 hours, defence officials said.

With a strike range of 350km, the surface-to-surface Prithvi II is capable of carrying 500 kg to 1,000 kg of warheads and is thrusted by liquid propulsion twin engines.

It uses advanced inertial guidance system with manoeuvring trajectory to hit its target.

Data of the missile trial conducted by the specially-formed Strategic Force Command (SFC) were being analysed, officials said.

The missile was randomly chosen from the production stock and the launch activities were carried out by the SFC and monitored by scientists of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) as part of training exercise, a defence scientist said.

The missile trajectory was tracked by DRDO radars, electro-optical tracking systems and telemetry stations located along the coast of Odisha.

The downrange teams on board the ship deployed near the designated impact point in the Bay of Bengal monitored terminal events and splashdown, officials added.

Inducted into India’s armed forces in 2003, Prithvi II -- the first missile to be developed by DRDO under the prestigious IGMDP (Integrated Guided Missile Development Program) -- is now a proven technology, they said.

Such training launches indicate India’s operational readiness to meet any eventuality and establish the reliability of this deterrent component of strategic arsenal, defence officials said.

The last user trial of Prithvi II was successfully conducted on November 26, 2015 from the same test range in Odisha.

Anti-UK feeling hampered India's purchase of Westland choppers

By PTI | Feb 20, 2016, 11.53 AM IST

LONDON: A multi-million pound contract for India to purchase 27 'Westland 30' helicopters in 1980s was overshadowed by "anti-British feelings" in the wake of former prime minister Indira Gandhi's assassination, according to newly declassified documents.

Documents declassified by the National Archives in London yesterday disclose considerable fear within the Margaret Thatcher Cabinet that India may reverse its purchase plan, which would hit the already struggling UK aircraft firm hard.

"Westland started to manufacture the aircraft. However, there were substantial delays which appeared at least in part to be associated with anti-British feeling in India following Mrs Gandhi's assassination (in 1984)," notes a document dated January 10, 1986, from the defence ministry to the Cabinet Office.

The deal, worth 65 million pounds, has been previously described as the 'Achilles heel' in relations between India and the UK following Gandhi's assassination as her successor, Rajiv Gandhi, had purported to link it with Britain taking tougher action on pro-Khalistani groups based in the UK.

"Mr Gandhi visited the UK on 15/16 October (1985). During this visit, Ministers had encouraging discussions about the prospects of an Indian order for W 30," a later Cabinet briefing note says.

However, C D Powell, Thatcher's private secretary, writes in another internal dispatch later that year: "Mr Gandhi said that the 'technical chaps' were giving problems. They preferred a French helicopter. The Westland one was too big and consumed more fuel though it was cheaper to operate per seat."

The dubious Westland deal eventually did go ahead but was to be later described by officials involved as a "catastrophic waste of money".

India bought 21 Westland 30s and the money came out of Britain's aid budget and was given to India on condition it bought the helicopters.

The 14-seater Westland 30s proved to be highly unreliable and a commercial disaster and India sold its entire fleet back to Britain for the scrap value of 900,000 pounds after the machines were found to be technically faulty and grounded.

The latest set of documents highlight the considerable chaos caused around the Westland crisis, which led to then UK defence secretary Michael Heseltine's resignation.
