Re: Tejas Mk2 Medium Weight Fighter: News & Discussion - 23 February 2019

Negi sahab, You and I can feel things like not enough thrust etc. but ADA’s design which has been vetted by IAF is based on extensive simulations and wind tunnel simulations. It is finalized to the satisfaction of IAF. I think we should trust the men with the knowledge, experience and tools. I have...

What we need to lookout for, given rumours that their 3rd AC will be CATOBAR is for the wing-loon type drones on their land-based CATOBAR test facility. If they've chapa-maared predators, they will be doing that or developing their own naval variant of the MQ-25. Whether it is as good or not is imma...

Re: Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat (15-11-2017)

Point to note - Indian telcos are under severe stress. Chinese makers are very capable of undercutting all competition to secure the market, given they're facing very stiff bans in us, europe and east asia. They'll fight hard with our own useful idiots batting for them too.

For something that is 500km away, you need something that is very very quick. Mach 3 is 1km/s. A head-on engagement would need to think of escorts and multiple missiles for one target. Perhaps another tactic needs to be resorted to.

perhaps the use of such pg ammunition was to ensure a hit because you don't get second chances and this is kinda a first time thing? If we're going to repeat this, we most likely would not expend such expensive bombs and switch to cheaper alternatives. jmt.
