Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

Do Pakis think an Indian Cold Start is coming? What has happened with the tanks escaping from Sialkot cantonment? Overall, the internet/comm shutdown and cellphone seizures in POK and Khyber-Pakthoonwa indicate something big brewing. Also tie into the reports from Balochistan last week (well after ...

Meteor cannot be carried on board the upgraded Mirage 2000I/TI. Meteor would have worked for the Tejas had Thales allowed the Elta AESA radar to be mated with the missile, but Thales refused.

Will Meteor missile work ok any other IAF plane - especially Mirage 2000?

Seems to be that would be the real game-changer vis-à-vis Pakistan. The stealth stuff is more important for China.
