Re: ABM/Missile Defense Discussion

Kailash sir, with all due respect, from a strategic & technical viewpoint, i disagree that the assets will be placed towards the center core of the area's to be protected. Reason being the incoming enemy thuds have to be destroyed well outside urban population/strategically vital installations, ...

Re: International Military Discussion

I assume this is the right thread to post this news. Mods, please do move to relevant thread, if incorrectly posted. Japs are coming out of their self declared moratorium of weapon sales. Should be good news given their quality. http://www.straitstimes.com/BreakingNews/Asia/Story/STIStory_749088.html

Re: India selects Typhoon & Rafale for MMRCA shortlist - Par

If the news above ( Rafale sales affecting its prod line ) is true, then by all means GoI/MoD should put in all efforts to get the French lower down the bulk cost during negotiations. As also, imprints of technology transfer. Dassault may just have to come down a little from their usual hard stance,...

Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

IMHO, i would term the move to place one squardon of Rambha's on the SWAC forward base as a very good move. IAF top brass would definitely have taken a close look and this should be the outcome of those things factored in. Apart from Strike capability on Pak bases during the very start of any confli...

Re: China Military Watch - Jan 11, 2011

Guru's, found this today. The Jiaolong's range theoretically gives China access to nearly all of the world's deep-sea areas. The craft is designed to reach a maximum depth of 7,000m and in a dive in the South China Sea last year it made China only the fifth country to go deeper than the 3,500m mark ...

Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

this Mush appears to be insane. Violation, does he know how criminal it is to harbour a terrorist all these while. And yes, now US forces need to take crash courses from him on conducting such operations. Yeah, we all can see the trust you have created for so long. Btw, it seems from his lines that ...

Re: India selects Typhoon and Rafale for MMRCA shortlist

If the French has indeed hinted at avoiding Mirage-2000 upgrade with some assurances so not to negate Mirage's role in IAF's structure, then Katrina in all probability would ride home with the bounty.

Gurus, i have been a lurker for close to 3 years in BR. Was a real pleasure assimilating all the info amalgamated over this topic. I managed to get my membership to this exquisite club minutes ago.
