300 KIA at LoC The Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee said India has committed over 1200 ceasefire violations in which 1000 Pakistani civilians and 300 soldiers lost their lives. Timeline not quoted but the TSPA is surely being thrashed.....they are admitting 300 KIA so can imagine the numbers

I say HAL should be given a list of friendly nations that it can sell Fighter Jets to and let them build LCA for foreign countries that need such a fighter. Let them manage it as a business, get funding and build upon it. It will also serve a purpose very critical - Let them fail on their own and r...

Re: J&K News and Discussion - 2016

A senior officer went to investigate and ordered the captain in charge of the peak to return to the Pakistani side of the Line of Control.

So why didnt this happen in the end? Did the Indians not ask again or was the Islamist story used as a excuse to stop more dealings on it?

Shaun ji, what you say was valid couple of years back but nowadays GoI is saying no money for 2nd line and Rafale was the goodie to keep you quiet and make do with more LCA orders (which is ultimate MII) which IAF isnt agreeing to (and it really isnt a secret)

Have no doubt that it is somewhat in line with current IAF thought process and is not DDM

I remember that when news of a SE fighter first hit DDM, BRF was unanimous that it was a hitjob but it turned out it wasnt

There seems a serious battle underway and hope Tejas triumphs at the end
