Didn't DRDO try to reverse engineer a British JP 233 bomb of similar design and has similar skeet type ammo?

Wonder what happened?

OK CBU-105 is the Wind Corrected Munition Dispenser(WCMD)
It adds GPS guidance to CBU-97 and corrects for wind drift.
I recall reading that wind drift was causing the weapon to go astray.

Yes #Jihadidi game is over and she knows it....

Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

If there is an eskimo consolidation behind Congis then it might be a tougher fight in UP/Bihar than expected. This seems like eskimos have abandoned the SP/BSP ship and climbed on to Congis one. It is exactly the opposite effect. In almost all UP seats barring Amethi and Rae Bareli, the main contes...
