They are "poor" because they are suffering and under medical care. Can one say the same for the very same people when combat ready? I am trying to find the exact translation of the telugu word 'laukyam', a character which is missing in many Indians. It basically means presenting an accept...

How can anyone not feel sympathy for the poor soldiers? They are not terrorrists. Even our armed forces are sympathetic to them and that is why they are alive on hospital beds and rotting on kargil heights. We expect the pakis to treat our soldiers the same way. That they do not is a different matte...

Duleep Singh
He was taken by the britishers after the fall of sikh empire and converted to christianity and his descendants were born to european women and probably never visited India.

These tasks can and should have been done by Commandos who can get close enough to actually lase the target Why do you want to do that when you have LDP's? Ground based assets are used when the fighter jet is already in air and does not have the co-ordinates of the target. For example, a covert com...

Makes sense. As dependence on technology improves, human skill decreases as we become to rely on machines to do most of our work. The IAF has to do with inferior technology compared to the americans and to make up for this the IAF men need to have extra skills. You can take the analogy of school stu...

Are the indian hospitals protected from law suits filed by these foreign patients in case anything goes wrong? Law suits are one of the reason why US hospitals charge obscenely high amounts even for simple treatments.

Pegasus, Here are my details of GD, GP, GT, CT and IT - IIRC, obstacle crossing doesnt carry any points. The ten obstacles need to be completed in 10 min (not sure, less than 10 min I guess) and most people manage to cross all obstacles under that time. When I went for SSB, some Rimcos in my group ...

One problem I see with using projectors against printed images is that there can be only one or at max two projectors in a Tatra truck. This means that only two images at max can be analyzed at a given time compared to 10 or so officers analyzing 10 printed maps/pictures of battlefield at the same t...

My uneducated guess: 1. To fire a missle from torpedo tube, the sub has to position itself at certain depth and angle with its torpedo tubes facing up. The VLS doesnt place any such restrictions, though depth restriction stays. 2. The VLS launched missile shoots out of the water vertically and can b...
