Re: Pakistan arms sales, ops, doctrine, etc

Hello All, My experience at the Farnborough Air Show with the Pakistani Pilots was excellent. They were friendly, polite and bore no animosity to the large crowd of Indians that came to their enclosure (albeit in the open) and asked questions. The plane itself looked very aerodynamic. It was very si...

Re: Indian Missile Technology Discussion

Ok, not sure if you guys have seen the latest Jane's Weekly. It's being reported that the problem with Bhramos was caused by a blip in the GPS guidance system where the missile lost contact with the GPS satellites resulting in the missile missing the targets. Apparantly, its being reported that the ...

To be brutally fair, they need the helos for the 'war on terror'. At least its better justifiable than F-16's. 8 AF-1's wont change the existing situation. Pakistan is terribly short on helicopters and they need them.

Nope the sensors aren't all over. I have played this game- the sensors are in your flakjacket, your helmet and your weapon. They are no sensors (all of them are wire connected) in your lower torso or legs. As a result, it doesn't recognise leg wounds. The other problem is that the whole sensor thing...

The funny problem with these are that they do not record head shots. So you effectively have to aim for the helmet to record a shot. The good part is that the laser is so thin that you need to have an absolute clear shot to kill, if there is a leaf between you and your kill, it will not record the s...
