Hawk fills AJT role currently, Sport will get the LIFT role. HJT 39 being supersonic would eat into potential numbers for SPORT.

Sometime back there was an image from aerodynamic studies for AMCA and what appeared to be divertless supersonic intakes. Looks like the AMCA designers are trying out all options before fsed kicks in.

Much has been discussed about IAF strike capability. How is the IN strike capability on MiG-29Ks coming along ? IIRC litening pods have not been integrated, nor any non Russian a2g munitions.

The only answer to ground support is lots of cheap smart munitions or bomb trucks like Su-34 which can go down low when the airspace is not contested.

Re: Artillery Corps: News & Discussion

Although Pinaka achieved range of smerch, it's still 214 mm. The smerch is 300 and the rocket weighs 800 kg, therefore having a bigger effect. We need to come up with our own 300 mm. Read sometime back, the smerch can flatten 67 hectares. That's a huge area. https://www.army-technology.com/projects...
