Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

In this video at 3:21 a Mig29k takes off from VikAditya without using a ski jump
Is it for real or is the plane doing some low fly pass (unlikely)

Would a loaded 29k need a ski jump & empty one manage without one?

Re: Indian Naval Aviation

Navy has 45 Mig29k while the Vikramaditya flies with 30.

So the remaining 15 is a big surplus to have. What are they used for- training and reserves. But that’s a 50% reserve

Today saw a lot of 29k and Kamovs at an airbase. Not sure if they are all reserves or the mothership is docked

A noobie question. How will a ASAT missile be used in an actual event. If ever there is a need to use ASAT on an enemy sat, we will not have the luxury of limiting the debris cloud or the chain reaction that will be triggered once the debris creates further debris on hitting other Sats.

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

Even if there is a miracle geo-fence built in to a weapon, the next complexity would be whether the supplier (USA) considers Kashmir to be part of India or not.

They can always play the stance that geofence in Kashmir is a gray area.

It’s just naive of us to be knowingly misled.
