how about - "Fly over enemy territory and smash windows in Pindi HQ buildings and be home in time for chai biskoot!"; now that I would pay for! Teasing is the worst form of boasting. Mig 25 served us well. Sure it did cause ripples over P'stan. But those were different days. These days th...

I don't understand one thing.. Why did we not use our much talked about Mi-24/35 "force". I know I would be fired upon by folks saying that the air is too thin at such heights and a big bird like Mi 24/35 can not operate at those heights. Then my next question would be what about the Lance...

The reason IAF is retiring these birds is because of maintainability. Not because they don't "require" it any more. That is PURE speculation. The IAF is more likely to be retiring them because, as Jagan said, the planes have run out of structural life. That is exactly what I ment. The poi...

People who are advocating refurbing and/or buying new Foxbats do realize that ~90% of what they did can be done by the vast majority of the IAF's modern birds right? Two words: Recon pods. Vik: Would you like to expand on your statement a little bit? Which Aircraft in IAF's inventory can do 90% of ...

What if the GOI needs an assessment of a developing situation in Pakistan urgently. Can a spy satellite be tasked to over-fly the target area in less time than the IAF can get a Foxbat over the same area? Just to let you know, it is not a simple task to go on a Recce mission. based on what I have b...

Will surely miss the trisonics. Mig 25 really served its purpose and even more. Not only was it a great recce platform, but also it was a great teaser. A lot of pilots used to "tease" the PAF, and regularly hit 2.8 Mach (Quoting an ex Mig-25 pilot friend of mine). To go past 3 Mach they ne...

May he rest in Peace (RIP). I feel that using the term "died" in not at all appropriate. For some reason, it sounds too crude. As it is said. " A soilder never dies, he just fades away". I would rather use "moved on" or "passed away". Also, I was trying to find some details on the contributions by G...
