Re: Indian Missile Technology Discussion

Its possible and indeed, probable, when testing new technologies that some of the goals of the test are not met. When this happen...

Re: India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector

I meant to say start with the small and manageable items first. Develop customer confidence and then move upwards. Chetak Ji This was how DRDO was working, when periodic reviews indicated that DRDO was spreading itself too thin and a political decision was taken for DRDO to concentrate on strategic...

Re: India's R&D in Defence DRDO, PSUs and Private Sector

The armed forces use antiquated equipment and suffer high casualties because almost everything they need to do their jobs, the DRDO says don't import we will develop and give by today evening evening itself. Casualties are regrettable, but which imported weapon system would let the Indian armed for...

Re: India to consider sending 120,000 troops to Afghanistan

The game that Pakistan and Unkil are playing with regards to the whole GOAT effort can be explained in very simple terms. 1) Unkil wants to get rid of AlQaeda 'Global Jihad is us' type Islamists. 2) Pakistan Army wants to retain any Afghan govt. under its thumb and to keep alive an option of Ghazwa-...

Re: J & K news and discussion

Geelani lives in India, not abroad. As such, he is under the thumb of Indian security agencies. The fact that he still breathes (and lives a life of a certain level of comfort) means that the Indian state perceives that his pathetic life serves some useful purpose. He could be tried under any number...

Re: Terror Attacks in Mumbai - IV

As far as these comical House of the Thackery is concerned, they have run out of steam and have been proved that Mumbai was saved by a large posse of non Maharastrians, along with Mumbai folks too, and that Mumbai was not a non Indian soil ruled by the Thackerays. Where were the Thackerays when Mum...

Re: Terror Attacks in Mumbai - IV

I am not sure if this has been posted already. Its a gripping account of how a local Shiv Sena Shakha Pramukh helped with the NSG operations. It also comes through very clearly how the Nariman house locality was completely left to its own devices by the Mumbai Police. http://specials.rediff.com/news...

You fight with what you got. havent heard of more asinine proposal. Its not like a standard pataka you get and throw. Ramana CBU-105 is not just a clust...
