Didn't say Mig-29K were doing good. You classifying my comment as "pure opinion and bunk" forces me to reevaluate the value of the whole exchange.Based off Indian CAG reports.
No that is Your opinion.
The fact that India has procured American systems debunks that. Particularly the P8 as they didn't just buy it they tailored the package to their wants.
Straw man argument. No one anywhere has. The US is the first to trail they system on ANY SHIP, EVER!!
The rest is just pure opinion and bunk.
Oh, did i trigger an american jingoist ? India isn't an american ally. How you deal with it is upto you.
I think i've mentioned my take regarding ASW platforms that India bought. Why reintroduce them and make a mockery of yourself?
You are in denial. India buying some US products isn't tantamount to India signing the deal to be an ally (vassal) like SK, Japan. Quick quiz. Name any powerful nation that has independent foreign policy and at the same time enjoys the perks for being an US ally? The only nation that comes anywhere close would be France but then again, their core interests overlap with that of NATO.
PS: you might want to look up what a strawman argument means. Quoting Debate tools within a debate has never made a good impression to me.
