DRDO and Israeli weapons’ companies at loggerheads
Hyderabad: Indian Defence Research institution, DRDO rejected the criticism leveled against it by the Israeli company.
At present, India is the biggest market for the sale of weapons. Israeli Arms Factories are not able to digest that India should manufacture weapons on its own. It was exposed when Israeli Arms Company Rafale criticized the production of AGTM Missile by India.
RDO responded to this criticism in a harsh manner and totally rejected it.
Now the present status is that the Israeli company has bent down to offer its apology.
It may be noted their Israeli Arms Manufacturing company had criticized Indian Company DRDO that it would take a long period for manufacturing Anti-Tank Guided Missile.
Israeli company had also told that Indian Army should consider taking up the production of fourth generation of missiles instead of the third generation ones. After which, DRDO reacted sternly and said that our ATGM programme is in the final stages and we would be successful.
It may be mentioned that Rafale is bound to fulfill its commitment which it made to its partner, DRDO. It is an indication that India and Israel have strengthened and long-term military association.
