Pakistan's military has cordoned off the area and not even the local police are allowed in, so it will be some time before details of the attack become known.


They will clean up the area. Dirty up another and take a bunch of idiots aka foreign journos for cucumber sandwiches and tea to that hilltop and say nothing happened, only a tree got shot. We should let that narrative build and release the videos. :lol: :lol:

The leftist jokers in India hate him as much as the Pakis. They too need to be monitored.

There were two waves of aircraft that took off from Central and Western Command to confuse TSP.. The details will slowly emerge as to how the armed forces delivered strategic surprise on TSPAF.

It was a dark night. As dark as six feet up a well digger's ass. The F16 pilots did not get their rations of carrots for better sight for the last few months. So, they did not see anything. The radars did not have the right spectacles and had trouble with vision. They have made appointments with the optician but it's in the future. As for the IRSTs, global warming ruined those sensors...

told ya, a indic mole flipped the light switch...so much that JF17 on afterburner taking off to confront the invaders was releasing flares over the runway even before clearing the airbase wall .

and NewsX confirms the order of departure

1am bhatinda - AEW
2am agra - Midas tanker
3am gwalior - 12 mirages take off , they probably topped up from the midas over uttaranchal or HP
3am Sirsa - 4 Su30 which flew over jammu and maintained a contingency intervention CAP over LOC as the strike ingressed

just a basic strike package ripped open the PAFs platinum grade maginot line that was supposed to be stood up on full alert on the nordfront. where were the F-solahs? the vaunted Ereyie awacs and the mighty dragon eye Y8 karakorums - ours was onsite and working, theirs was missing

so Fizaya took off on alert 2min status from multiple bases in range but turned away and ran off, when faced with a paltry 4 Su30 and 12 x 35 year old mirages heavily laden with bombs and ancient M550 magic missiles :rotfl: chi chi chi Fizaya ka to izzat ki neelami ho gaya

If this was the case then there was no need for the jets to have gone into pak airspace, Were they trying to give pak a message or was it a mix of Spice and LGB?

sooraj wrote:IAF jets dropped 6 bombs on Pak terror camp

Hundreds of Fidayeen and their trainers were shifted from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to a five-star, resort style camp in a hilltop forest in Balakot after the Pulwama attack, providing Indian forces with "a sitting duck target" when they carried out an air strike early Tuesday, killing up to 350 terrorists, sources said.


They said at least 325 terrorists and 25 to 27 trainers were at the camp, the biggest operated by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad group, which had claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, Kashmir that killed 40 jawans.


But India received intelligence that JeM had shifted many in-training terrorists and hardcore operatives, along with their trainers, to the Balakot camp, which has facilities for 500 to 700 people, and even has a swimming pool along with cooks and cleaners.

A small group of aircraft broke away from the swarm and headed to Balakot where "the sleeping terrorists were sitting ducks for the Indian bombing," said one source. "They had no idea that Balakot was to be the target ... when the pictures come in you will see only khandhar (ruins) of the once-flourishing camp", said the source. -- PTI


As I had said earlier, we have the ability to out think Pakistan. However the political will was lacking.

To quote Air Marshal Arjun Subramaniam

https://twitter.com/rhinohistorian/stat ... 0107389952

IAF used to be frustrated in the past that the political establishment does not understand the potential of air power- I guess that has changed.

Unbelievable how the Mirage 2000 still remains the go to aircraft for the Indian Air Force. Thats because it remains one of the most versatile platforms anywhere. Flew 3 sorties on the Mirages during Kargil but the upgraded variant the IAF now uses are truly awesome.


https://twitter.com/VishnuNDTV/status/1 ... 4218168320
Sources: The weapons used by the Indian Air Force was the Spice 2000, an Israeli smart munition with a range of about 100 kms. Incredible weapon. Is pre-fed imagery of the target which it identifies and then strikes after being dropped from an IAF platform


https://twitter.com/VishnuNDTV/status/1 ... 8768163841
sources: The delay in showing the results of the strikes in Balakot isn't really problematic. Pakistan would be well-advised not to see this as being an IAF failure. Satellite imagery, once available, will likely confirm the obliteration of the target area.


https://twitter.com/VishnuNDTV/status/1 ... 0005397504
Sources: This operation just went by the working name 'Op Balakot,' nothing else.


https://twitter.com/VishnuNDTV/status/1 ... 7780880384
Sources: Believe it or not, the Mirage 2000s used in these attacks did not include some of the HAL upgraded variants. These were essentially the same jets which bombed Tiger Hill during the Kargil war albeit updated with new weapons.

Yes, the same thought.We've not managed to upgrade the lot, but one is sure that in the intervening years some improvements havd been made, below a full- scale upgradation.

These jihadi targets are sitting ducks with no serious defences.A waste of expensive BMos and other high- value stand-off ordnance.Dumb bombs with kits transform our aging stocks into v.effective LGBs/ PGMs.
The result is no waste.

This is an astounding feat not just by the Armed Forces but also by the GOI. And that too in TFTA style bombing. Namo Namah!

I can only visualize the aircraft strike package to look like something out of a Harry Potter movie. Death Eaters (Mirage) the attackers while Dementors (Su-30 mki) lie in wait for any solah looking for an ummah!

P.S - A humble request to the posters who disparaged GOI for its alleged incompetence on the Pulwama thread and trivialized the sacrifices of the martyrs at Pulwama, have some decency to least offer an apology!

It must have been a mid sized drone, what has survived is small pieces, must be easily USD 5 million each if not more. Derby is expensive not sure its 1 million a pop. Initial purchases are for Trucks, Radars, Maintenance vehicles Training and other equipment apart from the missile. Replacement cost of missile alone will be much cheaper especially bought in bulk for Tejas also.

The deal was for 750 python + 750 derby missiles in 18 systems for around 260-400 million (lot of contradicting numbers). Than more missiles than all of pakistan's drones. If it shot down CH-3 almost immediately that says something.

Select Routes, Sophisticated Jammers: General Who Led 2016 Surgical Strikes on How IAF Jets Evaded Detection in Pak

He called the airstrikes “absolutely professional” and added that the attack was well-planned and could, therefore, evade Pakistan’s radar systems. He mentioned the usage of “selected routes” and “sophisticated jammers” while noting that technology-wise, the IAF is far superior to the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).

Empty bluster. They HAVE to find a way to bring nukes into the equation. Repeated strikes into Pakiland have happened and their nuclear bluff has been called.

They can't launch conventional strikes beyond CFV's
Shockingly, terrorist strikes now lead to reprisals

The brass is reaching for the only thing that keeps that country relevant.

The IAF took its kitchen sink and threw it at Pak.

The PAF decided discretion was the better part of valor as their screens started fizzling out and the F-16 CAP sent up to investigate realized what was headed their way either based on GCI alert or because their RWRs were going insane from 24x fighter radars locking them up. :lol:
