Re: CT and COIN operations in India: News, Images and Discussion

Afaik, dead bodies of terrorists are handed over to local police. Army doesn't bury them. Though it will be a nice idea to burn bodies or use them as cadavers in medical colleges. Muslims do not like donating body organs either , so both choices are better than burying hem.

Re: Artillery Discussion Thread

Saltoro is at 7500 meters plus altitude. The guns cant be taken to these heights unless they are taken there piece by piece. Afaik, most supply chains there are dependent on helicopters. Not a place for heavy guns either with huge snow banks and glaciers.

Many articles claim that Akash is nuclear capable. Considering that 2 of Indians bombs tested in 1999 were 0.2 and 0.5 kt, isn't it possible that this claim is true ?

If yes, do we really need this capability ?

Picture was probably taken before bomb disposal squad arrived. There is very likely very large number of unexploded shells spread over a large area.

These people live within firing range of MMGs all the time. These shells are not a big issue compared to the others

It is also the job of user to realise exactly what they want and not just chase the best while trashing good.

How army handled Arjun, Air Force handled Tejas are just two of numerous such screw ups in which armed forces face as much if not more blame than OFB, DRDO.
