Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016


Wokay, question for the gurus, which weapon is the Vajra armed with at 1:57? I assume the outer ones are IR MICA, but the bigger "Kh" looking beauties?
Crystal Maze also seen at the start.

Re: Small Armaments & Infantry Equipment - News & Discussion

What is the Army thinking?! :shock: The Indian military will get an obsolescent VSHORADS that will be almost two decades old by the time it enters service, and almost fifty years old at the end of its service life cycle. https://ajaishukla.blogspot.com/2020/03/two-major-russian-arms-deals-likely.htm...

It's an electronic counter measure podded system. Impregnable.

Extremely effective against radars & EM/RF missiles in its operating band of 5-18GHz.

I think Cheen wants a peek at Khan assets across the Durand line.Considering the ass whoopery the Fizzleya has been subjected to, this is could be a good add to bolster the Radar coverage on that side.

Re: Military Flight Safety

The ALH was designed with high crash worthiness - max 'g' forces first absorbed by the skids, then the fuselage and finally the crash worthy seats. Seats, if I remember were the pilots.' Too early to say but maybe that saved them in the seemingly vertcal impact here. https://twitter.com/BahadurManm...

Brilliant job by the AAC Pilots. A word of thanks to HAL too for such a great design, you can see the seats are intact and the energy dissipation upon impact was just as intended,shielding all the occupants.
