Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

Are fighter R/T comms conducted in the clear ? I thought they are encrypted. I can somewhat understand commercial aviation airband traffic being in the clear, but I'm surprised that AF comms are also in clear that Pakis can decode it. Its psyops... Message being that "We can decrypt your comms...

Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir



Punjabi speakers (hold your puke at the bigoted introduction) and confirm what this guy says at 2 min onwards.

Video uploaded 27 Feb

Says 2 pilots..

1st one landed 15 min after his plane fell.. and Pak Army got to him immediately

2nd one was one with mooch (Abhi)

Shahbaz is supposedly in the US in Alabama (AFB Maxwell, Montgomery) doing some course (as per Pak source on AFM forum who even posted a photo before deleting it). FWIW.

Sameer Joshi is supposed to be writing a follow up article on Medium apparently.

Not anymore. Now his guess is that it is S/L Hasan Siddique, who, unlike "Nouman", has not been seen since Feb 27 on media. Nouman has been seen with the Pak CAS and in their Pak day video.

Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

AIM120 has an 18.1kg high-explosive blast fragmentation warhead. (Different from the continuous rod warhead in R73)

However, would Fragmentation warhead cause shearing off of the tail portion from the fuse?

Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

Very soon expect the PAF to put out news that an F-16 has crashed during a “training” exercise and the pilot/pilots were killed. :x . They won’t accept that it was shot down. A “crash” is how they will try to cover it up so that they can account for the lost F-16 :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: Nah.....
