Re: Pakistan arms sales, ops, doctrine, etc

This'd certainly be a mouthwatering target for the air launched Brahmos.. Rambha pilots must be salivating already.. :)

Re: Delhi Rape Victim Dies-Express your outrage.

I just wrote to the three chiefs of the armed forces of India: The government of India has become the most tyrannical and unwitting regime in the recent times. The nation that produces the most number of the brightest engineers, PhDs, and physicians in the world every year, has somehow failed to und...

Re: Raffy wins - Go Katrina!

Why don't people get it - this is coming straight from the Brits who were vomiting all over when they found out about the Rafale's victory as L1. I had written and predicted in my last post that this was going to happen.

Re: Raffy wins - Go Katrina!

While Brits are saying "Do everything to get the deal back" I hope we get ready ASAP to deal with an act of highly sophisticated espionage aimed at killing the Rafale deal. I think it's a matter of time if not already underway in some sort of a way. I pray that it is unsuccessful. :evil:

Re: Pakistan arms sales, ops, doctrine, etc

Though it is not related to this thread.. I just wanted to point out that no Puki was involved in the operation. It was done only by a team of elite navy SEALs. It makes me think that the Puki radars and defense network was blind folded by the US. It could've been done in a numerous ways - Switching...

Re: India selects Typhoon and Rafale for MMRCA shortlist

All in all, Antony has showed a great amount of willingness to fight vested interests so far – he first insisted on conducting 1:1 between MBTs Arjuns and T-90s in order to kill the growing media hype about Indian Army’s dissatisfaction about Arjun. And now his insisting for sticking with idea of se...

Re: China Military Watch

A good one Acharya! There's a little doubt that the Chinese are probably the only country which can pose (even a little) threat to the US. However, as far as US goes, headlines that we often read about US taking notice of China's ICBM build up is nothing more than an act of certain US interests (def...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Our girlish babus just don't say anything to the US or to the Ruskies when the likes of pukies and lizards are armed.

Re: Vote for the MRCA

Looking at the size of this acquisition and the stakes involved, the contract must go to a couple of vendors rather than just a single vendor. Also, the number of the MRCA aircrafts should be increased to at least 150+. All geo-political situations suggest that UPA government is all set to award thi...

Re: ABM/Missile Defense Discussion

We need a layered ABM/AA system in place. Merely using our own ABM system or using merely the imported system (PAC3, Arrow, S400) won't work. These system should work coherently and in conjunction with other systems. These systems have different ranges and their purpose and weaknesses also vary. If ...

Sorry for my ignorance, but why is Dassault Aviation not in picture at all this year? Are they not pitching for Rafale? I personally think that Rafale has not only GOOD chance of winning the MRCA contract but probably is a front runner along with SH.
