Re: Remembering a War: The 1962 Indo-China War

To make this problem clear, we have to make a difference between some definitions. Both British India and India government recognized china has suzerainty instead of sovereignty on west tibet before 1950. The problem is what is the definition of suzerainty? What is the difference between it and sov...

Dear Mr. Technician; Quite right. A 200 kg warhead is going to make any PN surface vessel mission incapable.

Re: Klub ASCM and Kilo Upgrades

Vick, It would depend. To launch 100+ km from target the launcher would have to use AEW helos to target the PN vessels. So if the helo can "see" the ship to target it, the ship can also "see" the helo. In all probability the captain is going to be alert for an incoming missile, and his reactions wil...

Re: Klub ASCM and Kilo Upgrades

True but even then the max detection range will be 69-70 km from surface vessels - AFAIK the max height it attains is 150 m MSL before jettisoning its rocket boosters and descending to 15 m MSL. I dont think the 150 m make much of a difference if the missile is going to be launched 100+ km from the ...
