Re: Artillery Discussion Thread

There goes the indigeneous effort on Vidhwansask by OFB as smoke. Truly Sad. In fact, a post from another thread speaks about launching a Mars Orbiter , yet calling for Tender to Import an Assault Rifle. Many Systems need final approval from end user, in this case DG Artillery. Noting the 120mm LR ...

Re: Indian Army: News and Discussions 15 Apr 2012

If the IA is not even able to modernise equipment of its existing forces, it should not have expanded. Spot On, Saar. A few Years back some General while speaking abt defence of Pir Panjal Range, said that manpower could be reduced to 1/3 rd , if certain elements like UAVs, Tactical Radios, etc. we...

Some of the older satellites are dead junk , and contribute to debris in space. We can test an ASAT , which wont harm us in form of sanctions, and which is anyway long overdue.

Also , it can be broken down into 2 pieces , of 15 kg and 10 kg, to be carried by a 2 man team, which is where Army weight issues may have come up.

No Saar, as you rightly said, Russian Flight tests on IL-76 were successful. Quality of Ground Based Facilities in Russia may be quite good (Gromov and others)
I meant in context of Kaveri engine problems seen during testing in Germany. Here, it was Ground Based Testing, which detected the problem.
