Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

Why MIGs were left for CAPs at this critical juncture is beyond my understanding. They should have moved 29s during Kargil time from Adampur to Srinagar for LRPs.

I hope this this does not come to an end without IAF using the heavy guns.

Was there an update on the MI17 crash?
