Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

Yes, on a closer look, that does look like the R.550 Magic-2 - I stand corrected. Thank you.

The hunt for visual confirmation of Pythons in service with the Indian Navy continues...

Re: Naval LCA - News and Discussion

What a B-E-A-Utiful bird! Some observations/questions: 1. On the 3002, after the trailing edge of the wing, on the fuselage, you can see a pipe outlet. Fuel dump system perhaps? 2. Below that pipe, you can see a red counter measure dispensing system. 3. The 3001 does not seem to have the sensors at ...

Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

JS 221 has these protrusions that (maybe/maybe not) MAWS on the starboard inlet and under each exhaust. No such things on the port inlet https://www.flickr.com/photos/galenburrows/26422036202/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/vanheerdenpieter/26461619215/ Yes, I noticed those protrusions on each of th...

Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

Great pictures. Interesting to actually see the following on Jaguars: 1. Retractable IFR probe towards the nose. 2. The 30mm Aden cannons have been removed and covered for reducing drag. 3. There is a small air scoop or black sensor just above where the cannons were. 4. Additional boxy item on the a...

Re: Indian Military Aviation- September 29 2013

I think the Jaguars came with swiveling IFR probes originally but were removed to save weight as we didn't have airborne tankers. I think they were refitted once we acquired tankers.

Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

Any word on delivery of the IFR probe and quartz radome from Cobham? It was supposed to be November first and then got pushed to March, I believe.

Re: Indian Military Aviation- September 29 2013

shiv saar, Such installations can be taken down quickly with something like Brahmos no? High accuracy destruction of key targets in rapid succession, fits in with cold start too. Most of Bakistan's air assets are not that "deep" for a Brahmos to run out of range. Usual disclaimer (noobie ...
