The army generals who've got millions of $$ worth of land..land that will be worthless if it glows in the dark. As opposed to having an Indian Tank parked in their frontyard .That would do wonders for the real estate value . I think the generals would prefer the nuke as no one really stays in the l...

I dont think the Pukis are stupid enough to use nukes. The pukis comprise of the Army , The mullahs , The isi each vying with each other for control . which segment do you feel is not stupid enough ? The paki army has repeatedly threatened to nuke india if we cross the LOC . The mullahs / mujahidee...

Ray Sir,
Could you please tell me what is the maximum range (distance ) of a laser designator ? And does the target have to be "lased" until the bomb hits ?

jager Using commandos (SF??) for lasing is a waste of their skills. Using them as conventional infantry is an even bigger waste . BTW most wetern countries use their commandos to do just that .

Could you tell me how you will lase upwards (enough for it be picked up by fighters coming in from the top) or the other side of the mountain where the supporting infrastructure would be?? These tasks can and should have been done by Commandos who can get close enough to actually lase the target , ...

how heavy is a laser designator? what about its batteries? What about recharging? How heavy is that? how much can a man carry above 15000 ft? Compared to what our troops carried with them during Kargil , a laser designator would not be any great load , specially if they have a designated person to ...

jager - you really should read the BR pages more carefully!

Negi , LGBs are laser guided bombs . They are bombs that are guided on to the targets that are lit up by a laser either from the ground or from the air . AFAIK India does not have these bombs (Airforce Experts help?) I would say smash those mothers with artillery and mortars . Nice localised and a c...

This could have been a more influential factor (in the high casualty figure ) rather than the late induction of airpower as artillery is in so many ways superior to aerial bombardment in a conflict scenario like kargi...
