Can anyone identify the two mounted weapons on the jeep ?My best guesses are the gun in the back is a NSV and one the one mounted in the front is either the FN MAG or PK machine gun.Also notice the camo and gear of the soldier in the back,he's Indian isn't he ?

If you see the LSP-7 test video starting, there is a bucket with a female DRDO ground staff on tow tractor. Now I get the point why they carried the bucket at test range.
IAF test pilot and DRDO workforce after flight love and engagement... :lol:

GOC, VAJR DIVISION inaugurates Computer Training Centre at Trahagam

Very interesting photo. Check how the soldier is scanning the neighborhood building. Another is also looking at the other side to see if there is an activity.

A lot of such lessons were learnt during IPKF deployments in SL. Depinder Singh mentions one such incident in his book.

^^^^ Cool. His pataka + vest should give him protection from a fatal incident. He is wearing glove and boot which is different.

Can some one explain the pink paint on the wall here? Its a very bright pink. Could be some camo to go with the ice?

This area is occupied by the rare pink elephant and poachers will kill them unless they are given some place to blend into the background. The paint is an environment friendly gesture. :P

Chacko ji, they are most likely pink foam thermal insulation boards

http://i01.i.aliimg.com/photo/v0/296141769/XPS_Foam_Board.jpg

For a permanent construction those boards would not be left exposed to the elements.

For the brown elephants of the region?

Chacko - I am joking. I think those buildings have been rented out to the army and are not meant for combat use. They have probably been painted by the owners. That is why there is this big ceremony handing a cheque to the landlord showing how the army is aiding the economy of the region as a good tenant.

PratikDas,

The paint on bottom of the extreme right (left of your screen) house in one of two photo is chipped.

Shivji,

Raised platform with that tin roof and thin window is an army construction. It is not a typical rental agreement as I understand. It was taken over first, then rent was negotiated after years of bickering.

Anyway, couldn't find anything to tie pink with camo on net. Must be some color blind painter.

Chacko sahab,

May be you are looking in the wrong direction ... May be it not supposed to be camouflaged in. It is rather common to have a pink or orange distress colours as they are visible from very far amongst the snow.

I think shiv sir is right and it is indeed a normal house that has been painted pink by it's owners.

IMO, Indranil and Prithwiraj replies come close. They have painted it light pink so that it is distinguishable in snow from the 'close,' and not made it too bright.

You can see the Ships lift system on sidewalls. The helio is actually kept on the lift.

That chopper looks like it was obsolete in 1960. It is maddening to me how the IN is starved of funds despite being the most forward looking of the three services.

To the Guru's' the nose wheel seems to be protruding outwards, I thought the chetak's had their nose wheel facing inwards, please clarify.

I don't know what your point is. The Chetak & Cheetah are still flown by the IAF and usually for casevac and OP in lousy terrain.

Is it lens aberration that makes the missile bend in funny way or bad flimsy model that didn't hold itself up?

My point is the Indian armed forces should probably be using helicopters designed/built after the 1962 war with China.
