Above video from a Taiwan news channel claims Armenia is blaming India for their humiliating loss to Azerbaijan in the just concluded war for Nargona-Karabakh. It claims that the ‘Swathi’ weapon Locating radar Armenia bought from India recently underperformed so badly that Armenia is now seeking compensation from India.
Its probably a sensational rumours. The deal was signed in March. War started in the late september. No news of the Swathi WLR order completed and supplied was seen. So a highly unlikely.

Here's my small observation from LtGen YK Joshi visit at Poonch & Rajouri sector, What seems IA mounted 84mm CARL GUSTAF M3 on a 106mm RCL mount, keep in mind 84mm CARL GUSTAF has Thermal for Night & fires variety of Ammunition.

I couldn't stop laughing when I read that Armenia is blaming india for its loss. Gosh, indians have gone above and beyond in deteriorating their reputation in the global arms market, shamelessly. But I question whether this story is true or not.

Fake news no Swati WLR was delivered. It was ordered in may. And no news of delivery was reported.

Next Generation Offshore Patrol Vessel NGOPV 16 VLS 2,300 tons 6 planned RFI issued.

ASW SWC corvettes 16 planned. Goa Shipyard design 850 tons GRSE design 1,000 tons U/C.

Car Nicobar Class Follow on Vessel 18 planned 500 plus tons.
Only two MSRV's will be ordered in order to make way for more numbers of submarine and surface combatants. Even the current Corvettes and the OPV's programme will be overhauled by reducing many designs currently under conseradation and combining them into a Multi purpose vessels. This will also reduce the logistic and matinence cost.

And this will have no effect on the S 5 class SSBN's as these are funded not from the IN's Budget.
