Re: Indian Naval Discussion

What is this MiG 29K problem? Do blog posts naming unkown sources constitute a Problem? Its in marked contrast to the things said in the interview posted by Austin. Anyway in the precious few sentences Aroor devotes to this latest "MiG problem" never mention any supply chain related issues...

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

Re: Indian Military Aviation

^^ You have hit the nail on the head Singha Sir. I as a not too bright layman am always confused with this "Tejas is Underpowered" song routine. On paper things look very much adequate for Tejas to emerge as nimble multirole fighter. As you rightly pointed out, the thrust to weight ratio o...

Rahul M, ofcourse the raw fuel data is useless as you point out so clearly. But I am not comparing B-52 with Su30 here. Both the M2000 and Tejas are comparable in engine power and over all size etc. Anyway, what I say is that range (op radius) of Tejas (apart from vague little less little more crite...

Re: Indian Military Aviation

M2k is underpowered compared to the Mk1 If that is so why didnt they change the engine on later Mirage variants, like we are doing with our own Tejas? NFTC pilots have gone on record that the Mk1 has only a little less range than the M2k. Tejas has little less range than M2000 which has little less...

Tejas is equal to upgraded M2k and all because it has EL2032? The Mirage 2000 is heavier (more internal fuel) with a heavier weapon load, in fa...

Could any gentlemen throw light on the induction/function/role of this aircraft with IAF. Is this an ARC bird? Thanks in advance. http://img705.imageshack.us/img...
