Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A: News & Discussions: 23 February 2019

Exactly. Now, instead of running helter skelter with lungis falling, task this new industry with bigger challenges and crack the whip. Become masters of your destiny instead of imitating Pakis by running around the world - phytur de de baba!

IAF should have insisted on the Qatari Mirages. Are they still available? Instead of additional Mig29s from Russian cold storage, I wish they would look at M2ks instead.

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

36 Rafale would form 2 squadrons. If rapid force projection is required the IAF should consider 1-2 more of squadrons. However looking at more LCA Mk1/1A and getting into the groove with MK2 development would deliver the required fleet enhancement. The less we look to phoren solutions, the more powe...

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

When will we learn? Cannot rely on imports!! The LCA needs accelerated manufacture with perhaps private participation. MK2 development cycle needs to be in tune with ground realities and IAF needs to embed its project managers in the development team!! Believe in yourself! Stop this begging!

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

So PAF couldn’t touch IAF Mirages deep inside their territory. And Mig21 on CAP was not scared to take the fight to the enemy. Claims of MKI are BS - each has 2 pilots. So MKI plus 21 would mean 3 pilots down. MEA has said one mig and one pilot - that is probably true. IAF seems prepared to take the...
