Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

I find it hard to believe that any firm will enter this competition, given the fiasco that MMRCA was. Now that we have the Rafale, why is there a need for a new face-off between single-engined and twin-engined fighters, given that SEF competition alreaady exists as well as the future IN TE competit...

Re: PAK-FA and FGFA Thread - June 2014

Yeah fair enough. I don't see them adding much to the existing capability. I saw Angad either tweet or like something which confirms their deployment. The tweet also mentioned another 4 Su30 + an A50 which is a force multiplier. As an aside there are four things noticeable that happened in 3 weeks. ...

Ok. Even deejay says same thing. In that case can they have armed patrols in hazardous areas and mot just at the gates? Better solution is to not allow any families in field postings.

Ramana,

Agreed it was speculative post, but the question has been in my mind too. Let me make it simple.

The Tejas Rides

1) Are they driven by objective
OR
2) An outcome of the confidence

AND

1) Are they driven by HAL
OR
2) Are they driven by HAL and IAF
OR
3) Are they driven by IAF

All of you are wrong. There was a synchronization problem in shooting through the propellers. So they have decided to mount the gun backwards. There are many advantages of this. This will prevent aircrafts from lining up at the rear in close combat and also aid in acceleration whenever required. i ...
