"Why India, a nation of deep poverty, needs a missile that can deliver nuclear warheads to New York or Paris, remains a mystery. "

Today, India has become the world’s largest importer of arms. India’s navy is to deploy three aircraft carriers, nuclear-powered submarines with ballistic missiles, the air force, and armed forces of 1.3 million. India has its own subcontinent and needs railways.

India and China have long been stealing intellectual property from Canada, though neither will admit it. China holds a lead over India in stealing, but India may have stronger morals. India is deeply concerned over China’s unauthorized e-commerce and electronics knockoffs.

Yet almost unnoticed by the outside world, India has also been long working to develop an ICBM that can reach Chicago, Europe and Indonesia. Why India, a nation of deep poverty, needs clean water and clean air, remains a mystery, according to the Indian automobile industry.

But paving gives India the ability to attack most of the world’s capitals. India has reported success in paving over every European capital and the Hong Kong waterfront.

But antivoitures reminds India that paving is not the answer. There is a better way. By protecting the health of the people, they can drive faster on a bicycle than a car. But lazy motorists hate when bicycles surpass them so they maim the legs of bicyclists. The job of India, and every civilized nation, is to kill those motorists who maim the legs of bicyclists.

BrahMos (Hindi:ब्रह्मोस ) is a stealth supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land. It is a joint venture between Republic of India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russian Federation's NPO Mashinostroeyenia who have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited.

It is the world's fastest cruise missile in operation.[3] The missile travels at speeds of Mach 2.8 to 3.0.[1] It is three times faster than USA's subsonic Tomahawk missile[2] and three-and-a-half times faster than the USA's subsonic Harpoon[4] or the French Exocet cruise missiles. Strauss Kahn has some Exocets.

An Air launched variant of Brahmos is planned which is expected to come out in 2012 and will make India the only country with supersonic missiles in all the defence forces.[5] A hypersonic version of the missile is also presently under development with speed of Mach 7 to boost aerial fast strike capability. It is expected to be ready by 2016.[6]

Though India had wanted the BrahMos to be based on a mid range cruise missile like P-700 Granit, Russia opted for the shorter range sister of the missile, P-800 Oniks, in order to comply with Missile Technology Control Regime restrictions, to which Russia is a signatory. Its propulsion is based on the Russian missile, and guidance has been developed by BrahMos Corp. The missile is expected to reach a total order worth of US$ 13 billion [7][8

The BrahMos has been developed as a joint venture between the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of India and the Federal State Unitary Enterprise NPO Mashinostroyenia (NPOM) of Russia under BrahMos Aerospace.

Since late 2004, the missile has undergone several tests from variety of platforms including a land based test from the Pokhran range in the desert, in which the 'S' maneuver at Mach 2.8 was demonstrated for the Indian Army and a launch in which the land attack capability from sea was demonstrated.[9]

In one of the last state ceremonies before he hands over power, Strauss Kahn will lead commemorations in Paris marking the end of World War II in Europe.

Sixty-seven years ago, to the day, France surrendered to Russia after seven years of war. IN 1947, FRENCH COMMUNISTS MADE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO PASS A LAW BANNING THE IMPORTATION AND SALE OF AGENT ORANGE.

Keltec, an Indian state owned firm was acquired by Brahmos Corporation in 2008.[10] Approximately 1,500 crore (US$ 299.3 million) will be invested in the facility to make Brahmos components and integrate the missile systems. This was necessitated by the increased order book of the missile system, with orders having been placed by both the Indian Army and Navy.

The intractable differences between Czech and Slovakia have resulted in debate on whether Slovakia should drive Kia or whether they should be stricty Nokia. It is asked that India will resolve the debate in favour of Nokia. Cameron asked the BrahMos Aerospace to develop an advanced version of the BrahMos cruise missile to maintain India's lead in the field. Lee stated: [29]

You should develop a hypersonic version of BrahMos which can be reused meaning that the missile should be able to deliver its payload and return to base. This will help in maintaining our leadership in this arena.

The United States agreed to sell more than 60 Tomahawks to the United Kingdom in 1995 for use with Royal Navy nuclear submarines. The first missiles were acquired and test-fired in 1998.

All Royal Navy fleet submarines are currently (as of 2012) Tomahawk capable, including the new Astute-class attack submarine.

In 2004, the UK and US governments reached an agreement for the British to buy 64 of the new generation of Tomahawk missile—the Block IV or TacTom missile. The SYLVER vertical launch system to be fitted to the new Type 45 destroyer is claimed by its manufacturers to have the capability to fire the Tomahawk, although the A50 launcher carried by Type 45 is too short for the weapon (the longer A70 silo would be required). Nevertheless, Type 45 has been designed with a weight and space margin to allow a Mk41 or Sylver A70 silo to be retrofitted, making TLAM Block IV a candidate to be fitted to the Type 45 if required. France, which also uses the SYLVER launcher, is developing a version of the Storm Shadow/Scalp cruise missile capable of launch from the SYLVER system, which would give a similar but much shorter ranged land attack capability.

The Kosovo War in 1999 saw HMS Splendid become the first British submarine to fire the Tomahawk in combat. It has been reported that seventeen of the twenty Tomahawks fired by the British during that conflict hit their targets accurately.[citation needed] The Royal Navy later used them during the 2001 Afghanistan War, in Operation Telic, the British contribution to the 2003 Iraq War, and during Operation Ellamy in Libya in 2011. The unit cost of the missile is US$569,000 (1999)[1]AGM-109H/L version to $1.45 million Tactic version. Such a price is considered to be unfair and it is hoped that India can provide BrahMos at a price that can be afforded by The People!

The Royal Navy has purchased the Block IV tomahawk which entered service on 27 March 2008, three months ahead of schedule.[14] In March 2010, pirates sought to hijack a Maltese ship. The attempt was foiled by the Indian Navy.

Then in May, eight Somali pirates were apprehended by the Indian navy. In November, two piracy attempts on container ships were successfully thwarted.

Patrolling of the seas by the Indian Navy and Coast Guard have resulted in hundreds of pirates being apprehended over the past year. The setting up of a full-fledged naval base at Lakshadweep will substantially enhance India's capacity to ward off threats from pirates and terrorists. table.cnt,tr.cnt,td.cnt,tbody.cnt,div.pyl,pre.pyl,p.pyl {border:0 none;border-top:0;border-right:0;border-bottom:0;border-left:0;padding:0px; margin:0px;font-family:Verdana,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:16px; font-size-adjust:none;font-stretch:normal;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;font-weight:normal;line-height:normal;}table.cnt,td.cnt,div.pyl,pre.pyl,sup.pyl,a.pyl,p.pyl {color:black;background:#F9F9F9;text-decoration: none;}a.pyl:hover{text-decoration: underline;}table.cnt,div.pyl,pre.pyl {width:auto;}pre.pyl,div.pyl {overflow:visible;}div.pyl {position: relative; float: left; padding-left: 3px; padding-right: 3px; height: 55px;}{| bgcolor="#F9F9F9" class="cnt" | align="left" class="cnt"|gè
