Re: Raffy wins - Go Katrina!

Pffffffffffffff here we go again... some one else could also suggest that mr Reddy took some change from Eurofighter to put a bomb under the Rafale deal so they have another chance...
This is the best choice accept it and move on!! It's a matter of national security...

Re: Raffy wins - Go Katrina!

from JSFnieuws.nl:
The Pentagon has earmarked $151 million per plane and, in April 2011 (this was about the F35)


Can't see the rafale going over that number. But I would love the see the price of one aircraft in flyaway condition.
Without missiles etc.

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

I think there is enough scope for IN to have upto 6 squadrons of AD fighters for its three carriers.2 Mig-29K2 LCA-Mk-22 Rafale M It's not about how much scope there is, it's what you need.. Naval Tejas and Mig29 (K?) are allready two types. That means munition and spare part for 2 types. that mean...

Re: LIBYA : No fly zone/air war thread

I though the crashed aircraft looked like a Su24.
In any way, trouble has just started. I hope the West has enough sense to let arabian troops do some fighting for their muslim brothers.

Re: Bharat Rakshak Celebrates Seven Years!

Congrats to everybody.
I believe it was the year 1997 AD, when I first stumbled upon Rupaks Indian airforce page. There wasn't a great deal of information known in the west, so I was quite happy when I saw that fine looking website.
I joined BR in 1998.

Re: Kargil Revisited

b) In the 'spirit of jointness' would it not have been better if a joint IA-IAF team had published this report?
While both parties are putting the blame on each other? I don't think so.
Next question: After the whose fault was it question, will the GOI make sure that this doesn't happens again?

Re: Kargil Revisited

It's really hard to say who's right and who's wrong.
I wish I could say it is not true, but that would be totally baseless, as when I say that it is true.
So lets hope he presents his proof, and it turns out to be false alarm.
Very disturbing piece I most say.
