Having tried for more than a decade to develop a self-sufficient indigenous arms industry, in January 2011 the Indian Government announced its first official defence production policy.1 This long-term process had been prompted by a national security review that followed the 1999 Kargil conflict with Pakistan. Indeed, the bulk of India’s arms acquisitions have been motivated by perceived external threats from Pakistan and China as well as India’s ambitions to become a regional power in competition with China.2
