I know that individual units and the cell that uses these for dissection at Mhow later have them.

If they can release some of it, that will be great.

What part of SL ops are you planning on?

Also should try toget Havaldar Gora Singh who is now retired.

The only footage would be with the Army and some with DD.

Shankar - the problem is that you assume that you have a brilliant solution which no one else has thought of. Fortunately for us that is not the case. The IAF has mechanisms to do that. If it is an a\c which has civil flight links then that will get passed on to appropriate people. Details are also ...

The interesting part of all the suggestions to have simulated stormings etc., is the fact that the ARmy used to do this way back in the 70s .

WE used to have itin BRaborne stadium , with Infantry charges , smoke etc. I think they called it Military tattoo or something.

While I appreciate the pictures of equipment , we need more picures of the troopers - thats where a lot of tiny changes have come across. Shivs picture of the paras is nice.
It has also captured a bit of the swagger of the paratroopers

Before anybody goes into raptures about the Ah 64 in the Gulf war, please remeber that it was operatig with virtually no opposition.

Any poor sod who peeped out got plinked.

Re: A detailed overview of Indian defence products

the double trigger thingy seems to be an attempt at a 'bullpup' design. It is nothing todo with a grenade launcher. A grenade launcher needs a different type of ammo. It seems the second trigger position will be useful in folded butt mode.<P>
