So, o'l IAF wants to buy Euro stuff.

I wonder how it will help them.

Can any Indian guys out there tell me how it will help?

Dude, Dagesh, them Indians need em bro, alot of political leaders are being killed in India by the heli-crashes. So new helicopters are needed.

Ex. YSR Reddy got killed in a heli- crash somewhere in Andhra or whatever.

And I wont even start on the President Prathiba Patil mishap at Delhi airport, now thats a mishap that could've ended up worse.
