Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - Jan 12, 2012

Hi

I met a Chaiwallah from HVF recently and he mentioned there are issues with Arjun's suspension due to increased weight of Mark II. He was not very enthusiastic about Army's response for Mark II.

Can somebody clarify if it is true?

Thanks

Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Isn't it astounding that our "Noobies" are able to pass judgement about the maintenance of the aircraft, just by taking a cursory look at the aircraft. Battered Chutes, Peeling paint... is that all or do you also see Weary Pilots, Non-working radars, useless IAF maintenance guys who were s...

Re: Discussion on Indian Special Forces

What is this "Longish" comment about INSAS. I've seen INSAS with foldable butts in airports. Don't these weapons act as a deterrent as well as to defend. Won't the "Longish" INSAS deter somebody trying a mischief. I don't see anything wrong in using these weapons.

Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread

Hi I am not sure why most of the posters are considering Army as the villain and seem to have already concluded that they will sabotage the trials. What if this is a trial not to qualify or disqualify Arjun but to fine-tune the war fighting strategies. With no experience in handling heavy tanks like...

Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Sajith Is it necessary to discuss a hypothetical situation of acquiring a SU-32, which is not one of the MRCA contenders. Neither is IAF looking at the aircraft seriously. Maybe, you have your own reasons to believe SU-32 is better suited for us. Unfortunately, the MOD and IAF does not concur. Inste...

Hi Philip I am a fan of your replies. But, I feel there seems to be a monotonous pattern to your responses. To all indigenous efforts, you seem to come up with some other option and say that this would have been better than what is being done now. You seem to have introduced Pilatus into the discuss...

Modification of Dhruv rotorblade tips

Dear Gurus

I watched a program in some channel in which they claimed modification of rotor blade-tips of Helicopters reduces the noise signature of the helicopter. If so, would such a modification be a value addition for Dhruv? Has it been tried already?

Thanks in advance

Re: Indian Military Aviation

Hi I don't understand why you expect Igorr to defend Russia? It is not as if he is a representative of the company which sold the engines to us. For me, the seller is trying to negotiate additional payments - and seems to have some reasons for it like additional time and related investment. Cost esc...
