    Sad to say, even with a 56 year old "one Harrier carrier", the Indian Navy still has significantly more carrier strike power than the RN has had for several years, or will have for several more.

    Just as well we're apparently still going to give them £250M in foreign aid this year according to the Times earlier this week. :mad:

    Well, I guess someone has to pay for the Surya & Agni nuclear missiles, not to mention the Mars Orbiter spacecraft. :)

    Don't forget their P-8s, SU-30MKIs, Rafales (well, maybe!) and 5th Gen PAK-FA!

    Could be just in time to take ownership/control of the Prince of Wales, would be ideal for their existing Harrier fleet.
