Re: Pulwama Attack

The reality of Indo-Pak border is both side is heavily defended. This means, anyone invading will face major attrition, once the balloon goes up. The first mover, specially in a standoff attack will get the advantage of element of surprise. The responding party will be hitting against a alert advers...

Re: Pakistan Armed Forces: News & Discussion Thread

Our biggest adversary would be the Aim-120C. I am hoping we have some good ECM from our yehudi friends.

We have some nice AESA based aircraft jammers and the monsters on SU-30.

Paks have 500 Aim-120(or may be a little more).

I expect CFV from PA today, at the least.

The S band TRM GaN are in the 200W range.

Re: Vayu Shakti 2019

One thing compared to last time was A2G accuracy, specially with dumb bombs. 3 LCAs, diving in one after the other with dumb bombs, all making the hole deeper !

The worst was Mig-29, still the hits were within the target circle !

HSLD was phenomenally accurate.

Can someone comment in simple terms, on how Pakistan's Saab 2000 `eireye' compares with our AEW&C (both the ER 145 and IL-76 platforms) ? Based on what can be seen, propeller versus turbine engine. So Netra will have higher flight, more power, so probably longer ranged radar. Netra is max 300KM...
