Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

Not sure if this is posted before HM says NTRO has calculated 300 cell phone signals active in that area before the air strike.

Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

I think India has the license to do anything now. Why just leave the airspace closed? Why not conduct some SEAD missions? We have Bramos. hit them from air, sea, and land. Once the radars and ground control stations are taken out, our boys will dominate their airspace.
