 India intends to send the old weapons to most of the equipment in the army.


Many sources told the India express that the government has ordered the army to write a list of outdated military equipment in order to promote defense cooperation, which will be refurbished at the minimum cost and then sent to the friendship state. This seems to be a surprise to some senior army and air force officials, who say that because of the lack of funds, most of the outdated weapons are currently in service. The specific military platforms currently considered include outdated or outdated artillery, armored vehicles, helicopters, naval patrol vehicles and radar systems, the sources said. Up to now, India has only given several Afghan -25 armed helicopters. India has also provided some neighbouring countries with smaller domestic weaponry, such as patrol boats. We are in contact with many countries, especially during a variety of high-level visits, government sources told the India express. Many friends have asked them to give them secondhand military equipment for the use of their armed forces. The source also said that such countries include India Ocean countries, some African countries, Central Asian countries and Asian Pacific countries. They said that meeting these requirements would not only pave the way for deepening strategic contacts with those countries, but also maintain partnerships through the deployment of training teams, specialized courses in India, supply of spare parts and long-term maintenance work in India. But a senior India Air Force official told the India express that the air force had no extra helicopters, because the air force had sent 3 m -25 armed helicopters to Afghanistan in 2015. The official also said that the India air force is still using a 40 year old Sam, which is out of date but has not been replaced, because this years defense budget is limited.
