Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion

link from Hindu, http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article3464773.ece there is a mention of pitch up maneuver, does this point to a nuke warhead? anything else wouldn't need such a high altitude explosion for safety reasons are the new tests about adapting to intercept sub or ship launched CMs?

On the engine topic, for a scramjet program, laser ignition was tested with success, if used in regular jet/IC engines would it help in better burning of fuel mixture? could be useful in starting up engines soaked in colder climates or relighting engines at higher altitudes

LASTEC and Kaveri?

Re: Armoured Vehicles Discussion Thread - Jan 12, 2012

if the Army once again does a videshi to protect swadesh even when not necessary, lets revisit the plan to phase out the old T series tanks, and as it was done with trucks recently by gifting them to Afganistan, we could have supplied the Afgan army with these T tanks, instead we should now supply t...
