Re: Artillery Discussion Thread

nice to see we'll be testing the German Pzh2000 Wheeled howitzer, it will proabably win the 180 Wheeled self propelled howitzer deal. The new Borfors will win the Towed howitzer deal while the M-777A2 wins the ultra light gun deal. combine all this with the Bhim howitzer and i think we have a good r...

Re: C-17s for the IAF?

well Sanku enlighten me. secondly why do people here worry so much about Pak. IAF, IA, IN togther can level PAk in less than 10 minutes no matter what kind of weapons US gives PAK. By 2012 our air space will be impregnable and nothing the PAkis can throw at us can actually get through. China is the ...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

well even the F-16 and f-18s operate in some sub zero temps. like in Eielson and Elmendorf AFBs Alaska where the average winter temp is below 30. I think the problem isn't the tempeture but the high altitude at Leh. How can the mig-35 not finished trails when they clearly say 4 out of the 5 have alr...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

the mig-35 was tested already because the Gripen has not yet undergone testing at Leh yet and the article clearly says that 4 out of the 5 already tested had problems. So gripen is the last leg and then testing is over. By the way, the first was the F-18, f-16, Rafale, mig, EF and then finally now G...

Re: C-17s for the IAF?

Sanku sahab seems like you've been here too long, may be your the one growing old and need your medicine. Well i dont decide what is paranoia and caution, its upto the final operator of the equipment to decide that and in this case its the IAF. Since they are the ones interested in the C-17, i trust...

Augusta Westland is a British company right? Gilles: been reading this thread for a while give it a break man, it gets really annoying when you make it sound like the purchase of 10 aircraft is the worst thing that India could ever do. <rant> when people try to brush the threats off because it is t...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Nihat bhai, i dont think we need source codes in order to integrate Astra on Amriki jets because i dont think they gave out source codes when they integrated missiles like Derby, Python-5, Mica, Magic-2, Iris-T, As-30L, Skyflash, Popeye-2, Delilah etc on to F-16s and missiles like Taurus KEPD, on f-...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Kalle saab Mica is a really piss poor choice one should rely on to defend a really expensive jet because with its range of 60km it is half the range of the aim-120C-5, the C-7 is said to have a range of over 140km. The Meteor wont be ready for full induction before 2017 and its estimated price in 20...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

full-spec apg-79 not being offered is really old news and i really dont buy it. Full-tot may not come but they'll give the full-spec apg-79, according to what Boeing says, they fully comply with the rfp which if i am not wrong demands 60% tot and the old submissions wont be valid beyond end of april...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

The RVV-SD/MD good missiles and part of the mig-35 package but no r-77M, the ramjet adder is no show and dont really know where it is, seems like the missile has been scrubbed. If we go for the EF, Rafale, Gripen NG, their primary A2A missile is the aim-120C-7, dont know when Meteor will arrive. R-7...

Re: C-17s for the IAF?

hey all, newbie here. lets not argue about 10 planes, i dont see the c-17 as a bad choice. Its cutting edge , has lots of nice avionics, reliability is good and can do the job, that is carry upto 70+ tons from A to B. It can prove very useful in disaster management, transportings lots of materials a...
