Re: Possible Indian Military Scenarios - XI

Shankarda, kothai jacho? For a moment I thought you were entering Nick Carter territory, with all that breathless prose about sleek, red eyes etc., :mrgreen:

Re: Kargil War Thread - VI

India has no problem in dealing with anyone in TSP. Mess'araff had his uses, now his time is up. Lt.Gen. Kiani exhibits either great candour or simply an appreciation for reality. He admits that the Indian Army is quantitatively superior, not qualitatively (thanks to PMA lessons 1 TSPA = 10 IA). But...

Special Forces Video Clips

Mahroof Raza is himself ex-SF isn't it before he left the Army for the life of a scholar? He's been putting on a lot of weight since he left the forces. Mahroof is one of those rare scholars who is witty, and at ease before the camera. Great producer!

Youtube clip of Marathas

Doc we see too few clips of our regimental training centers. A casual observer could be be forgiven for thinking that all the military training that happens in India is confined to the officers' academies. And where did you get that footage of live ammo training?

Anyone care to contrast this air-sea battle with the one described in Red Storm Rising? By no means is the output of a mediocre airport novel hack in contention. But purely from technical merit, how do the scenarios compare?

Low odds for SuMKI vs SuMKK/Su27

Wonder how any other package of aircraft would fare in a mission like this one. Could an F22 interceptor package have accomplished this mission and gotten out in one piece? Assuming that the US would ever allow itself to be painted into a situation like this? Coming to think of it, this isn't a stan...

Physique

ParGha, Get the idea about sports etc., this place isn't a discussion about that for sure. Projectile weapons do change things and upset all advantages of physique. The crossbow negated physical advantage that a bigger soldier may have had with the longbow. That's all the sporting reference was abou...

Physique

In a projectile sport like cricket size doesn't seem to matter. Maybe that's why a Symonds or a Hayden are frustrated when after all that huffing and puffing they are hit out of the park by much smaller guys. wonder how this translates into the really serious business of projectile-weapon-armed-comb...

Physique

Or visit museums and look at some of the armour or clothes worn in medieval times, and you come out thinking, "Wow! Those guys must have been huge!" Do you mean the Europeans or the Indians? I have seen some European suits of armour, and their broadswords (> 150 cm). They are huge. I did ...

E-books and other things

Airavat, I bought the e-book version of your OpKar-1. If the idea didn't work out, it is not because of me! :roll: How big were the Indian soldiers of the day compared to their European, Central Asian counterparts? Who could be rivals as well as colleagues in the same battle? What sort of physical t...

Stirring stuff

The battalion will be monitoring the education very closely and arrange for some coaching classes for the National Defence Academy -- we all want to see him as an officer in the battalion. We will feel very happy if he commands the battalion one day. His daughters -- Arti, 11 and Manju, 9 -- are in...

The DDM, again...

The DDM is amusing. One refrain concerns the LCA and other indigenous developments, that they are behind schedule, the DRDO is incompetent, etc. If this is refuted the likes of Ajay Shukla begin to hold forth clamouring that India shd not buy the SAAB/Eurofighter etc., because the IAF does not have ...
