India's subsonic cruise missile a Partial success.

The firing was a partial success. According to DRDO sources, the indigenous engine was successfully tested but the delivery platform came down due to inexplicable reasons. "Maybe a snag in the controller, but the engine worked well. Next test firing will be done in mission mode before user trial for air force and navy," said an official

Meanwhile China was once the poorest country on earth with civil war, recovering from Japanese invasion, cultural revolution which disrupted the entire nation and millions died. It then turned everything around. China was never that far behind on science and tech. There was always token industries and ambitious projects occasionally let down by lack of funding, poor infrastructure, being behind the west in STEM, and lesser industries. Now that has finally been overcome and overcome by decades. The fruit of this is already becoming apparent and will only become increasingly apparent.

Once a nation that could only attempt to make plastic moulds for landline phones is leading the world in telecommunications technology, surpassing even Ericsson.

Once a nation that could only build some poor attempts at flying machines years after Wright brothers is one of the few nations in the world with the industry to supply Boeing and Airbus and build its own.

Landing on Mars and Moon on first attempts with orbiter, relay satellites, lander, and rover.

Largest space program with a slew of scientific missions being (completed and performed rather than showing PPTs) that rival the US and ESA to say nothing of India's ego driven missions of launching thousands of pieces of functionless "micro satellites". Which one is building several space and ground based telescopes that are larger than what's ever been done before? A few are already completed. Which nation has a deep space network and which one needs to go begging others for use of their?

India does not know how to make a single supercomputer. China's for the last 20 years have been world renowned and now leading with the US head to head. Who has two principles of quantum computing technology being pursued (several projects done btw)... China or India?

Who leads the world in shipbuilding? In electronics, in exports of all types of finished products and supplies for the entire world's manufacturing networks?

Who supplies Tesla cars with battery technology? Who is Apple asking to supply battery technology to? Mind you these are the two leading battery tech developers in the world and they are both Chinese (BYD and CATL). India meanwhile doesn't even have the infrastructure and tech to make camera lens which admittedly is difficult and expensive tech which China has had for decades... India?? lol. That's indian tech for you.

Comparing India and China is like comparing Albania with Switzerland. Maybe they are roughly the same size with sort of similar population sizes. That's as far as it goes. Of course the loser is going to be bitter and make all sorts of excuses for why the other is better and why they suck. However that attitude is exactly why they suck now and will continue to suck. Have fun sucking Jai Hindia.

BTW this is just the tip India. China's lead on you is far deeper than just the few things and areas listed. The gap between India and China is far wider than the gap between the US and China. It's obvious enough to everyone who is actually informed but there is no hope for the echo chamber Indians who talk each other up while their country struggles to produce more than 10 1970s era fighters with 128nm chips at best. What happened to the lauded Uttam? India celebrating for years of a potential prototype AESA that is still being worked out and when it does, is rubbish. This whole time busy proclaiming it will be the best and Chinese AESAs suck despite China having roughly a 20 year AESA tech lead on India.

India shows everyone desperately as it boosts its first test of a "hypersonic glide vehicle", decades away from being weaponised. China has been doing those level tests since 2000s and when many are in service, shows one type of strategic deterrence publicly. India's probably burned up as soon as the HGV separated from rocket if it even managed to separate. Says we ran it for 20 seconds lol. US silent and no one recognises the test meanwhile US desperately tells the world China is developing HGVs when China was just testing theirs quietly. There's your difference. Meanwhile India has the ego to troll others and talk down on others at the bottom of the world. Have some shame.

Your people are sitting and crowding on the rooftops of mid 20th century trains and these are the lucky ones! The unlucky Indians were forced to walk 1000km+ to get home when your public transport system collapsed in 2020. Your country can't even weather the smallest of hiccups. China overcame invasion, civil war, famine and poverty all at the same time and turned its country into the world's factory the most integrated supply chain player all in two generations. Have some decency and respect for others. Talk less, hate on China less, troll less, do more, be better.
Hot damn!

Well,

FAILURE: GSLV Mk II F10 - EOS-03 (aka GISAT-1)​

This is the fifth failure (not counting one partial failure) of the GSLV Mk.I/II in fourteen launches. It ends a streak of six consecutive successful launches back to 2014, the longest the rocket had achieved.

Space is hard.

What the hell is a partial success? You either succeed or you fail.

The missile was earlier tested with Russian Saturn Turbofans and supposedly went the full distance (800 to 1000 km).

Now it's an Indian engine and it's a partial success. I guess some other stuff failed. Who knows.

Well the new test is conducted with the indigenous engine, correct? Assuming that the engine isn’t the source of failure this time. The missile still didn’t go the full distance due to some other malfunction. How do they know that the engine would’ve gone the full distance if the missile failed before reaching its target?

Keeping in mind that this is not a solid state rocket motor that shuts off dozens of seconds after missile launch. This is a turbofan engine that’s supposed to keep working through the duration of the flight.
