Re: Military Flight Safety

AN-32 un upgraded version i believe has GPWS, Air data computer and Radio Altimeter. Airdata computer provides barrow altitude to GPWS(HOneywell?) . GPWS has synthesized voice warning system. Not sure whether GPWS takes input from Radio Altimeter or not. The radio Altimeter works for 1500 meters ab...

Re: 2019 General Elections : Results Discussion

Modi Ji's first signature this time should be awarding a Padma award to Dilbu Ji. It is the best time for this government to recognise the rare but important talent of proven Anti Jinx skills of Dilbu Ji and how he has been rendering his selfless service to the nation for years. :eek: It is all goo...

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

The low vote share of the BJP in KL does not look problematic if you consider that there was tactical voting in many of the constituencies to defeat the left. Cong was perceived (correctly I guess) to have the best chance of beating the commies. KL is only a setback from which the BJP can recover wi...

Re: 2019 General Elections : Results Discussion

I don't know if Gadkari harbors ambitions for one of the big ministries, but he is still vital in the Transport and Water Res ministry. There is absolutely no one else who can do as good a job as him in there. I hope he takes one for the team and agree to remain there, considering how vital the infr...

Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

From what I have seen it was more of an anti-ADMK vote than anything else. BJP was irrelevant except in social media hot air and meme sharing, but the perceived interference by BJP in ADMK and rumors of propping up Rajni etc also fed into that. The only way the BJP can get traction is by working at...
