Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

One other item of great import worth noting - all this action (and more!) is possible without the scaremongering of ataami escalation. Bakis have comprehensively acknowledged that conventional action can proceed irrespective of their nook (nood) status.

Re: Terroristan - April 24, 2018

Pushtun troops of the Mehsud Scouts starting to mutiny, in support of PTM

Pakistan Mehsud Scout troops resigned over military’s support to religious extremists

Troops are being detained, and of course the news is blocked in "vibrant press"-land.

Question for you: you mention Dhruv top speed of 240 kmph and Rudra top speed of 210 kmph: is it the weapons load + armor that slows it down, or something else? I ask because they are the same basic vehicle.
