Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

I do not think the Akhnoor dagger poses any threat to India anymore- this is not the 70’s or 80’s when the only lifeline to J and K passed within arty shot of this dagger. Nowadays it is a convenient bulls eye area for Dhanush and Pinaka. Which is why I would be very surprised if India did salami s...

Re: Indian ASAT test

Thx Kanson. If its a 2 m diameter for a proposed sub launched version, then it means a different design for VLT's & hence a new class of SSBN, after S4 & S5.

Questions arise about the underwater version of A6, will it have the same dimensions as the K4/K5? If not, then it means a new class of SSBN (similar to how the USN developed the Polaris, Poseidon class leading to the Trident class subs due to first-strike and counterforce compulsions).
