Re: Pulwama Attack

Something odd is happening in TSP.
A former corps(e) commander(ex DGMO) and a brig(MA in Bonn) are arrested for spying for US.
And rumors of further arrests.

Kakkarat, Testing in actual fighter plane will take a lot of time. First the air to air mode. then the air to ground mode and finally air to sea mode. All this will mean testing to the design envelopes and actual margins. Its not as easy as they are saying. IAF will not and should not accept it unle...

Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

Good question.
ShyamD had said MBS brought some proposals
a) MBS will be the interlocutor
b) IM says he will investigate
c) Trust IM

Re: Tejas Mk.2: News & Discussions - 25 February 2018

Where did HAL say it will come out in 2026..? 2022 is realistic date. My hypothesis is that the decision on MWF was taken as the same time when Mk1A was accepted as an interim solution. ADA worked on the design for almost 4-5 yrs now and is very close to finalise detailed design phase, if not alrea...

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

But by using Uttam on MkIA we can mature it to a better level for MkII and AMCA You are thinking technology validation. IAF has to fight. So it will be handicapping the force by putting these on Mk1A. Once validated they can be retrofitted. And also who knows what delays for the subsequent programs...

Re: Kaveri & Aero-Engine: News & Discussion

Both AMCA and MWF require higher performance than Tejas for which Kaveri was designed.
So it can't power either plane.

RD What you say fits Western logic.
