Re: West Bengal - news and strategy thread

WB police behaves like a castrated TMC lapdog.The state also has a cadre of goons. In pretty much all states in India, the police is now pretty much an official goon force of the elected state government. It is very severe in cases like KL and WB where political activism is way too high, and job op...

Second all were Deccani converts. The first nawab, ...

Key point is Naval LCA is ready for arrested landings.
Looming in background is the IN requirement for 57 a/c. Need to see if they fit the carrier lifts. Naval LCA will fit due to wing span.
Naval aviation is bitten by IAF bug of only the best.

Chetak, One way is to figure out 20.4 tons at 160 knots equates to how many joules? JayS wrote 40 ton at 160 knots is 140 MJ. So if it's correct a 20.4 ton at same speed would be (20.4/40)*140 = 71.4MJ This 71.4/13.5= 5.3 times greater than max design energy. So barrier is designed for a gentle arre...

Re: Military Flight Safety

Wonder what factor of safety they used to design the system?
Was 13.5 MJ the ultimate load or it has a safety factor on top?
Usually ground equipment has factor of safety 4.
