It seems might be using some Electro Magnetic high impulse won on India,s Choppers and other Air Planes to jam ronics circuits of the planes as there have been a number of that kind crashes in recent years.

Cheetah is not supposed to fly. Change the name to falcon or something.

It is interesting to see that armed force aviation losing their planes in the A and Bhutan whereas civil aviation planes are unharmed. I see some foul play in the bordering areas.

Something seriously wrong in the Indian Airforce esepecially . Loss of life and equipment is perhaps the highest in the world during peace time. Same goes with the Indian Navy too

On an average, there is one air crash every month involving IAF aircraft. Shouldn''t air chief marshal and defence minister provide some answers? Is it aging machines or inadequate training? Chal kya raha hai is desh me? Netas are busy banging girls while enemy is drop arms using drones, pilots keep on dying in crashes.....

Single engine helicopter for army use, that also in mountain terrain? That''s quite zing. Will defence ever transport a VIP or VVIP in single engine helicopter? Answer is NO, as you are well aware of risks involved. This clearly shows how much defence big wigs care about our pilots and jawaans.

Most of the crashes are of aircraft made in India. This is the 21st century and we continue to produce poor quality equipment, be it aircraft, warships, INSAS rifle, Arjun t k. The maintenance is also substandard. We are not only putting are soldiers at risk but the whole national security. Only the netas and babus are to be blamed.
