Just curious guys, why does this question of renaming j10 and j15 comes up?

We are merely buying them no co-development or local assembly. For a buyer specific version j10p/j15p sounds practical or m I missing something?

Naming fighter jets with local names is not about co development rather it shows emotional affiliation. Different airforces adopt their own nomenclatures, prime example of it is Israeli air force, even indian airfoce used to name their jets with local names but this practice has been discontinued in IAF

Reaching mumbai should not be a priority.Instead elminating the surface assets present in the theater is more useful.Destroying popluation centers just brings bad publicity.
besides people there are other high value target in Mumbai. Remeber Mumbai is the financial hub of India. Why did India want to target Karachi?

Indians have always considered Kashmiris as others. People in a far-off fantasy land, unrelated to them. They fight and yell and we gotta stomp them down and bring them in line. When wars break out in Kashmir, it doesn't really reflect upon them as a war on India. Hitting Mumbai brings the war home. The psychological effect of landing bombs on Mumbai is inexplicable.

A vital effect of these acquisitions. In the past, we always worked with the assumption that if a war breaks down, Karachi will be blockaded, and we will have to fight it out with little chance of opening up shipping channels even if we managed to damage the Indian fleet.

That is no longer the case. These acquisitions ensure IN will stay thousands of miles off our coast and rely on SoW and missiles to hit Karachi. And more importantly, we can hit them out as far as they can hit us. IN no longer weighs down the balance of power.

In my humble opinion, you are spot-on on both these assessments.
