Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

That is the risk that we run with AF in Arab countries employing Pakis in various capacities and buying the same imported maal that we do. Even if the French didn't train them classified info on the platforms would probably still make its way to the Pakis either directly (as in this case) or indirec...

Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

The fact that they took 45 days to take people on a tour is virtually damming proof that the attack took place, and hit it's target with devastating effect! If IAF had really hit 'trees' as they say, knowing ISPR they would have had journalists (especially foreign ones) at the site within hours.
