Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

that is an Micro Tavor / X-95 carbine. The magazine is definitely for 5.56mm and not 9mm.

Re: Aero India 2009

Hi, I will definitely be going to AI '09 with a photographer friend. And between the two of us there will be two DSLRs and two big white lenses. Reading this post, I realised that some spots are better than others. While I cannot vouch for my friend, I would be delighted to make available all my pho...

Re: IAF at Red Flag / Nellis AFB 2008

The uniforms, the turnout, the attitude as seen in the photographs clearly shows a professional, confident AND happy bunch of people.

I for one would totally disagree on the need to change uniforms.

Re: Indian Military Aviation

A trainer, I believe a Hawk, was doing lots of twists and turns for about half an hour over HAL airport. A couple of times I have seen 4 jags fly simultaneously. But lately if you hear jet engines for a long time, then chances are its the Hawk.

The "DDM" report is entirely believable. A possible reason for favourable performance of IAF vs the Singaporeans could be the fact that the IAF probably has more knowledge of the F-16 and its characteristics than the Singaporeans have of the Sukhoi. But I'm all for the singaporeans coming here until...

okay i got some feedback about the INSAS from a user. its a sweet machine... very accurate... low recoil. But it tends to jam at times. A brand new Ichchapore weapon had a couple of rusted parts. The jamming problem is as widespread as one in five rifles. However it takes less than 5 seconds to get ...
