Re: LCA is Named Tejas!!!

Rudra, are you sure the tail will house the towed decoy, most other fighters have such decoys installed in the wingtips.

Re: Role of armed helicopters in army operations

Cy, the Su-32 is not intended as a replacement for the Su-25, but for the Su-24. I doubt the russkies will replace their Su-25s anytime soon as they seem to have been quite pleased with their performance in Chechnya, the Su-25 is a good CAS aircraft, not as great as the A-10 though, but it will get ...

Re: Role of armed helicopters in army operations

The problem with Vikhr is that there seem to be 2 diffirent missiles known as Vikhr, one being more capable, and this more capable version is a laser beam-rider.

Re: Klub ASCM and Kilo Upgrades

The chilean navy also uses Barak onboard its heavily modified County class destoyers.

Venezuela has the ground launched version of Barak on order, the system consists mainly of the Barak launcher and a Flycatcher radar.

Re: Klub ASCM and Kilo Upgrades

The Myriad has 2000 ready-to-fire rounds.

There is also a question about how long it takes for the gatling gun to accelerate the barrels up to the maximum speed. So in the beginning of the burst the rpm is quite a bit lower, unles you keept the barrels spinning the whole time, which you dont.

I agree Nitin, I hope it is the bad ass version of the Vikhr, tandem warheads, supersonic, 10km range and can also wreck havoc against slow moving air targets, like Cobra attack helicopters.

Re: Klub ASCM and Kilo Upgrades

But Geeth, I was talking about navies that equip their ships with VSHORADs as the only defence against air attack.
A Mistral launcher wont do sh*t against a Brahmos or a Harpoon, as it wont have time to react and fire the missile.

Okey, found it, but it doesnt make any sence, it says AT-16/9M120. But according to this site the AT-16 has the russian name 9M121, and the AT-9 is called 9M120. The AT-9 and AT-16 are related, the 16 is the 9s bigger brother, with longer range and according to some sources double warheads. :whine: ...

Yes, the russians have a way of making it very difficult for people to keep track of all the names they give to their systems, which they tend to change on a regular basis just to screw with us. The Vikhr has laser guidance as standard, but can be equipped with IR and even radar guidance as an optio...
