Re: Aero India 2003 - News & Reports

Re: Aero India 2003 - News & Reports

Note the LAH from Defexpo has the same tail rotor, i hope to see the new model with the LOH tail rotor, as in a fenestron type rotor. With the LAH being more ground 'hugging' it makes more sense to go in for a safer design that could prevent the tail from being damaged by objects around it. Asking t...

Sridhar K, From what i can see the heli in the foreground is a Mi 35 Hind gunship, while the one behind it is the army version of the Dhruv ALH. Heres the photo from Defexpo 2002 in the BR monitor. There is a better photo hiding somewhere though. http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/MONITOR/ISSUE4-5/rajloh...

Re: The state of the armor - Indian and Pak tanks

A Nitin post a day keeps the Arjun naysayers at bay! Ive been trying to do some reading on some reports i keep reading around about why a 120mm rifled gun on the Arjun/Challenger 2 might be more "Lethal" than a 120mm/125mm smoothbore gun. All ive been able to come up with is that rifled guns are mor...

Re: Arjun – To be or not to be (?)

Some great info by all, but i have a few questions to nitpick. As pointed out by Nitin the FCS is not swedish but dutch. Was this six years ago? As per BR webpages the FCS is the Bharat Electronics AL-4421 Mk.1B Digital FCS. Is this the FCS with the excellent results that satisfied the army in 2002 ...
