Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

these roaring forties and furious fifties have very tall seas and high winds in IOR - use for 100s of years by sailboats looking to move faster. clipper ship route from london to australia and back. winds blow west->east so they took the chile route back to london...the dreaded waters and icy storms...

Re: Indian Missiles News & Discussions - May 2017

how is the DF31/41 claiming such superior specs to Agni5 despite being smaller and lighter.
the yars and topol look reasonable being longer motors and maybe 1st stage composite casing.

wire guided ATGM? why do we need that when laser beam and top attack IIR guided is more survivable?

wire guided is TOW era stuff. cutting edge - for the 80s.

per some hollywood films the white house also has a few stingers as a last ditch if airborne attack is imminent.

when threat level is high, amraam/stinger armed hummers are parked on the washington mall with portable radar vehicles.

are these intended to work in upper part of trajectory outside the atmosphere?

a mach20+ RV inside atmosphere will need ceramic heat shield

in space, even these metal coated balloons will fall at same speed as the warheads.

the tow tropid is strangely very hefty vs anything else out there. perhaps they had planned some heavier missile or reused it from a past product. must be a real pain to carry around. and is such a huge optronic unit needed for a mere 4km shot? the khan trooper is using a MKI unit more befitting a t...

Re: Indian Missiles News & Discussions - May 2017

The tow missile has a very hefty tripod while russians use small ones from prone or sitting position

We need to use some light alloy or composite to reduce the weight of launcher ftom 14kg to 7kg

And missile hopefully shave 2-4kg

That will make it much more portable
