Re: India's Generals who made an Impact

Jagan,

I think we should seperate their professional aspects out. Many big shots have other unsavoury behaviour on thri books - not related to the military work

Re: Role of armed helicopters in army operations

Rudra - The Mi 35 can fly fast and straight - So if the target has already been identified and the MI 35 does not need to do any searching then it can zoom in and fire and be gone before the jihadi elements can turntheir MANPADS around. The trick is to provide the MI 35 that info and not use it to l...

Re: IA/IAF: Op Parakram and Kargil-II

What absolutely ****es me off is this reporting that Pakistan's threat to nuke deterred us. If anything deterred us it would be Uncle next door and using his economic might to make it painful for us. And why it comes form the likes of Sawhney perplexes me except a feelng that somehwere he must have ...

Re: A Tale of Two Hydraulic Systems

It is a shame that Vishnu Som of all people had to author that stupid Jag piece.

The last crash was a sad affair and the IAF lost a extremely talented pilot due to a terrible emergency. The pilot did not abort a take off.

What hope do we have for the Hypes etc?

Re: Books that cover IAF and its History

Vol 12 is now pretty much useless. BR has more info and scramble and scramble will cover the remainder.

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

The deserts of the GUlf are different from the THar. The desert in Israel/Gulf is more hard while in Thar it is extremely soft. So any comparisons need to keep that in mind

Re: Understanding INSAS

Raj: you need to chase 2 things 1. As Sunil pointed out - open source info on INSAS user views 2. Why the AK 47 is preferred? Short range battle somehow does not answer the that fully. There are veterans of 18 years of non stop CI who swear by the AK 47 under any condition. Could be that the AK is c...
