Re: Transport Aircraft for IAF

Roysaab, I wouldn't be surprised if Shuklaji recommended buying Robotic Klingons armed with death rays. In his many recommendations on MIL HW, Strat, Managment, the dude shows no signs of any familiarity with even popular literature, leave alone professional stuff. I will take Shuklaji seriously whe...

Re: Transport Aircraft for IAF

Ajai Shukla makes a cogent argument for a more integrated transport aircraft policy: Midwifing new aircraft Instead of introducing a third project... But, I disagree with the article.... Shuklaji is wonderful at focusing on a single issue each time, to the exclusion of everything else. Dude wants t...

Ajai Shukla makes a cogent argument for a more integrated transport aircraft policy: Midwifing new aircraft Instead of introducing a third project into the mix (albeit involving manufacture, not development), the MoD must integrate these three efforts, avoiding the duplication of effort and expense...

Re: Discussion on Indian Special Forces

What do you mean by this? All training stems from doctrinal principles. Doctrine is something quite different, something far loftier. Even if the folks we know use the term to name the wrong thing, something tactical, there is a doctrinal set pf principles that guide every military. The most succes...

Re: Discussion on Indian Special Forces

Before comparing our miserable selves to the mighty Khan'massa and the TFTAs and whining endlessly that we don't have a SpecOps Command, no Joint SpForces Command, no joint training etc., :(( pl understand that what Khan'Massa has today is the result of a doctrine, a strategic environment, and certa...

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

The IAF and IN conducted a joint long range strike a few months back in which the IN vectored Rambhas flying in long and deep for over 6 hours or so all the way from W.India to around Indira Point. I don't remember the details. As for PLAN building up multiple carrier battle groups, that's a stretch...

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

F1 cannot grow until it is made to apply for entire Maharashtra and given a place above the Mumbai police in terms of chain of command/heirarchy. Else it is going to be a still born which will die in due course. There are deep seated structural problems with Maharashtra. First, above everything els...

The Indian armed forces would never plan such a stupid operation. The joke is on the journalist who conjured this scenario.

Re: India selects Typhoon and Rafale for MMRCA shortlist

I have no doubts, in fact I have never had any, that this time too, the MoD and the respective HQ have made the right choice. I have read too much of fluff on the F-teens by that airport novel hack of a chickenhawk, way back in the day when some posters here were in shortpants. Enough to know that t...

Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

This is not the sort of unarmed combat that works and no fauji would use anything like this. Warfighting is not a matter of exhibiting your prowess, it is all about killing the enemy as quickly as possible with a minimum of fuss. Even UFC/MMA is no model for military UAC. Because unlike regulated sp...
