Re: International Military Discussion

seals also worked with SAS in former yugoslav states to target 'war criminals'. methinks seals and delta get the pick of hardest missions as the 'elite' of the SOCOM. Eagle Claw (raid on iran from CVNs under carter admin) was a delta affair. seals are said to be buffed up killing machines wearing b...

Re: Radar - Specs & Discussions

Chetak, the radar is seen clearly from all surrounding buildings. It is public. LRDE is right next to a techpark. Dont know how my 'revelation' is in anyway of harm. And what sensitive details did I reveal? I havent even put up the pics. If I am missing something here please tell me.

Re: Indian Missile Technology Discussion - 27 March 2008

Hi folks, Just out of curiosity why do we have to go into LRSAM/ BARAK 2 when we can use AAD itself? I understand we need different weapon platforms for redundancy and overlap for efficient air defense using different methods (RF, IIR, etc). But cant we do the same using a common missile body but di...

Well if you look like that we can derive meaning from the drab names given to our weapon systems.

For example, Tejas can refer to the flash of 'enlightenment' received by the enemy when bombs rain down on them.

Laser-Guided missile by India?

Today in Deccan Herald editorial page I saw a snippet from 28-Mar-1983 talking about India developing a Laser guided missile. Which missile is this? Was it the Nag whose specs were later changed to IIR / MMW guided?

I don't understand Chinese, but it does look very much like the semi-planing monohull LCS design of Lockheed Martin.

Yup, it is the same. Check out the same pic in Wiki link:

Counter-attack is definitely one of ...

Well, in the case of PLAN again another choke point for them is the Malacca Straits. FORTAN is very much capable of blocking it using land-based aircrafts. If PLAN does breakthrough Malacca, they still have the Eastern fleet to contend with.
