Lockheed wins $1bn Indian order

From BBC:
The US defence firm Lockheed Martin has won an order worth about $1bn (£512m) from India for six Super Hercules C-130J military transport aircraft.

News of the deal, agreed in January, emerged during South Asia's biggest defence fair in New Delhi.

That's 4000 frigging crores!! Why the hell does India spend so much money on weapons? I know, I know its not much compared to the giant USA. Why does any country need to spend so much money on Weapons? It all feels such a waste. Can't we just get along?? :)

And Lockheed Martin, their revenue is $38 Bil. Looks somewhat low..don't ya think?
