Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

^^ Wonder how much is this costing them? Must be at the edge of their stockpiles and $$ if this continues another few weeks

All this heightened activity must be a goldmine for our EW assets to capture into their databases ( must be similar for their side too)

There will be payback one of these days for all those AAMRAMs fired. Any TSPAF aircraft which comes anywhere close to the border will be made a example

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

I really dont think any military assets were targetted. Pakis just tried to probe crossing airspace at multiple points and one such probe led to a showdown

Its just sheer bad luck that the pilots ended up landing in PoK. Were they shot down in A2A?
