Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

China has released a video of Galwan valley clash trying to pin the blame on Indians. However , the video shows how Chincoms came prepared with riot gear and it was a planned move . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTAE9Y5qrfY https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/china-releases-video-of-galwan-...

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A: News & Discussions: 04 January 2021

I saw the aerobatics of Tejas and I still feel that there are some comparable aircrafts which have better manouver. Like climbing immediately after take off etc. Is there a software that is restricting this. As tejas has better specs than those aircraft, we should demonstrate that to our potential c...

No the MAWS is for the Mk2. MAWS is less critical than having a good Radar plus RWR and SPJ combo. The only fighter currently in IAF service with MAWS is the Rafale.

Nithin and Shiv are the two most reliable defence reporters.
One of them says Black top not with IA, other says the opposite.

Would be nice if we can have a confirmation. But I will tend to believe Shiv, as he was the only person who reported that some IA troops were captured after Galwan.
