Re: Indo-UK News & Discussion 9th Aug 2011

This guy should be killed(assassinated is too big a word for people like him) immediately. I really don't understand how the British are enduring such nonsense for so long now.

Re: Personal Health, Nutrition and Fitness Thread

@sudip: thanks dude, i work for HAL and have to put up with various languages as such(software and real life).
I'll definitely try out the ideas you suggested the NGO thing sounds good and so does cooking. The mijjile maalish thing is also worth a try perhaps :lol:
thanks again :)

Re: LCA News and Discussions

The NP-1 has a separate team and is in no way related to the AF team(on HAL's side). Infact each A/C has its own team of flight test engineers and my ex roomie works on the NP-1 and he has been busy ever since the roll out. I am not sure about the ADA guys but i believe they have a separate team too...

Re: Personal Health, Nutrition and Fitness Thread

work has never been stressful, infact those 8-10 hrs are the only interesting hours of my day, it is the boredom after work thats driving me mad. hence my life has been BR & beer for quite some time now and the combination is fantastic i must say.

Re: Raffy wins - Go Katrina!

Great news! The Rafale was my personal choice too and so was it for many of my mates. And coming to the production of these birds, i don't see any worthy manufacturer in India and maybe to some extent in asia who can be considered able ahead of HAL.
Cheers.

Re: India selects Typhoon & Rafale for MMRCA shortlist - Par

The Tejas Mk 1 is underpowered. Which is why the Tejas Mk 2 with major structural changes is required to be developed. The lack of power issue with the Mk 1 cannot be solved with time alone, a new airframe capable of housing a bigger engine is required. i remember, quite some time back, it was tabo...

@Raghuk Not sure whether you are the correct person to ask this question but why is this hurry among DRDO/ADA/HAL folks to leak out dates via blogs/media only to be proved otherwise? In case of LCA this has happened so many times that such comments regarding the timelines of LSP6-7/NP-1 sounds ridi...

Hi people, The NP-1 is currently undergoing EGRs and is expected to fly by the end of Feb, the LSP-7 is in a similar state but may fly slightly earlier, so Feb will be the merry month for all the jingos.

Re: India selects Typhoon & Rafale for MMRCA shortlist - Par

HAL is said to be cooking a scheme where they rename the Tejas as Rafoon and sell it to EADS who will again give it a swedish name and pretend its a European joint development and market it in Brazil/Oman/Qatar/UAE etc as a more modern and economic alternative. Cent per cent true, you can take even ...

Hi people, it was neither the LSP-7 nor the NP-1, i had seen a PV-3, LSP-2 and an LSP-5 parked on tarmac, so should've been one of those aircrafts.
