Nice if true. But it's still concerning that Navy didn't bring out an official statement if this story was false. Also, I believe the INS Arihant was extensively refitted, it might be that a rear hatch was added. As for news being suppressed, it could easily be explained by those at the top not wanting to look like morons, it isn't exactly like suppressing embarrassing news is something the government would never do in India. The entire February thing has made me completely lose trust in the military high command, I wanted to believe their lies but I still couldn't.
Russia, China and India all have planes worth a fraction of a single American plane, as proven by the fact that even retarded goatfuckers can get a good k:d ratio against us in a battle where we outnumber them 2-3 to 1.
That said, China's is definitely number 2 in sheer volume, Russia's is more advanced in tech but constantly cramped by low funds and our's is cramped by funds and shittier than even China in tech. Tejas is literally a meme jet.
I'm talking about the few percentage point reservation for families of defence personnel some entrance exams have. I've seen it in I think one or two entrances I've given, in the others I didn't see it.
