    By 2012, Pakistan should have a new sub (either another Agosta or even the German U-214). Also, the PN is trying to buy 2 Perry Class frigates from the US and there should be at least one or two F-22P's in the PN (most likely equipped with high end electronics and weapons by then). Not to offend anybody, but if the IN were to face ALL of those navies at once, it really wouldn't stand a chance. Yes, the IN can take them on ONE BY ONE, but never all of them at the same time. It would be equivalent if China were to go against the Japanese, Americans, and South Koreans at the same time in 2012. The PLAN would be dead within a matter of minutes. Same goes here for the IN.

    Why do you assume the INS would be "going it alone"? By 2012 there may be any number of nations willing to help her in such a conflict, particularly depending on the provocation.

    Having said that, I think it is much more likely that before then the PLAN will have attempted to woo the Indians themselves (which they are already attemting in many ways) to keep them out of any potential conflict resulting between the PRC and the ROC and the US over Taiwan.

    It is just that I can't imagine any other navy helping the IN in that situation. Otherwise I would have stated so. Maybe the USN would help the IN out, but then it would become a much bigger conflict.

    If a conflict DOES happen, the only countries I see getting involved would be China, India, and MAYBE Pakistan.

    this is bound to start a flaming war if there is an Indian member on this site. Anyhow, I believe Viraat is getting decommissioned.

    There better be 052Ds and even newer 054s by 2012. Also Talwar is FFG. The type 15 and type 17 numbers are questionable. Who really knows how many Delhis IN will have.

    It's interesting. IN is built for blue navy operation and PLAN is built more for defensive and coastal roles, but PLAN has more advanced ships.

    Exactly...and one of the reasons I believe it probably will not start there.

    I do not see the PLAN pushing that far from home until after they are more powerful and secure within the 1st island chain...and that means Taiwan at a minimum. Until that is resolved, and that will ultimatley involve the US, I just do not see a Sino-Indian conflict emerging.

    I could certainly and very easily be wrong.

    I believe if the Pakistanis and China went together against India, India would get help...Australia, S. Korea, Japan, the US, the UK...all would see such a conflict as a threat to the stability of the entire region where they all have very critical interests

    As a hypothetical scenario, India has absolute advantage in the Bay of Bengal.

    If you look at it geographically, China is on the other side of Bhutan, Thailand is on the other side of Burma, and Pakistan... well, they're on the other side of India.

    Numerically speaking carriers cannot compete against land-based air force. India can base hundreds of airplanes from land bases right up to the Bay of Bengal. If they want to attack a PLAN fleet there, they don't even need to send ships out.

    I don't think that the PLAN would be stupid enough to send its ships in the Bay of Bengal to fight the IN. That would make as much sense as the IN sending its ships into the South China Sea to fight the PLAN. The PLAN could probably send in subs into the area to harass the IN, but I don't think any surface ships would go there. Not until the PLAN gets more fighters in its arsenal will it risk that.

    and they would all go down the drain because Indians don't have ASW. Let's face it, they never really had to face a significant sub thread.
