Re: Pathankot AirForce base under attack

My sense is that the good guy casualties likely resulted from explosive attack (grenade or mortars) and not bullets. From the point of view of the tango, launching an explosive via a grenade launcher allows shoot and scoot tactics which can prolong the engagement. What I find shocking is that when e...
