Re: Indian Military Aviation- Jan 10 2012

I am confused onleee. Why should a towed target body have boosters and fuel tank. There is something fishy going on. As the name implies, towed bodies are towed by a mother ship(plane) like TTW Caneberras or Lakshyas. May be these towed target bodies will be released by the mother plane and having i...

Re: Indian Military Aviation- Jan 10 2012

this looks more like a cruise missile from the drawings in the tender document than a towed target body. If it is a towed target body, why should it have scooped air intakes and fuel tank?

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

Good points ARay. Don't you think that we will limit IN as a brown water navy and we will not grow it as a blue water navy in this trial. What will happen when the Chinese do not come till Bay of Bengal and use their SSBN to lob both conventional / nuclear missles at us. Will we have the ability to ...

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

ARay, I have been lurking in this thread for the last two days. I understand that you want IN to start looking into cruisers first, get them operational and in meantime continue building the ACs. I also got the point that these cruisers can be armed with a lot of ASMs and AShMs and we can start bloc...

Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

It does'nt look like a paint chip. There is a small crystal like piece in front of the IRST. What I see is a abberation in the black paint right next to the IRST and not in front of it.

Re: Su-30: News and Discussion

Looking at the picture in Chacko's blog, it looks like the skin is torn off near the IRST. I wonder whether this is intended or it is due to high hours of flying put by this particular airframe.

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

2 is a wide band jammer, not sure of the origin (Indian or imported). 3 is an EO device (more likely to be LLTV which is closed). I also think 1 to be some sort of ESM/ECM Sensor.

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

I may be wrong, it may be the same radar, but, with extended range. If you read the pdf brochure attached to the link I mentioned, the radar can be configured in three different configurations, small, medium and large. INS Shivalik might be using the large configuration. It may well turn out to be a...
