It obviously can't be "Bala Kote" in Poonch because it is within Indian territory (as in Indian controlled territory) and IAF doesn't bomb India (well known fact which is why IAF can't be used against Maoists). So thanks for the clarification, indeed it is Balakot in KPK.

The pakis's from Manshera are also taking to twitter having heard loud explosions and fighter sounds. manshera is closer to balakot in KPK.

We must sincerely thank the cretinous uniformed scum in Pak for giving us this long awaited opportunity to scorch the backsides of the Paki pigs.Their last terror outrage was the limit. It is incomprehensible that they expected India led by PM Modi who stood firm against the Chins in Doklam and stood them down to simply talk about a " befitting reply".The long awaited reply has indeed been delivered by our M2Ks with Indo- French flair accompanied by hungry MKIs and perhaps Fulcrums also- we await more official news,in what one sincerely hopes will be the first of many similar replies.

Our prayers and hearts go out to all those involved in striking back at Pak and our political leadership in giving the armed forces a free hand.The cojntry is ONE- united as we have whenever our enemies have attacked us.This is also a signal lesson to China that its proxy will be dealt with by fire, and by association is also a spear up XI Gins Imran!
JAI HIND!

We have been defensive in that forces are pressed into action only in hot pursuit or to counterattack/punish/neutralize the enemy. Currently there is no such reason for IN surface and subsurface fleets to attack Pak. But I would love for the petrol tanks in Karachi to light the sky once again!

The IAF Vould have gone with a more conservative loaf out - we don’t know - but this sounds about right for a raid of this size.


What most folks dont realize (though I have posted on this topic on BRF a couple of times) is that the Mirages have the best EW fit in the IAF, integrated + podded both. The older Mirages also have the original Litenings we purchased + a range of PGMs and new munitions integrated. The Su-30s are air dominance fighters for a reason, with range, payload and that humongous radar.

A combined Mirage + Su-30 strike package (flying top cover) is very reminiscent of the Mirage + MiG-29 packages at Kargil, though due to limited endurance the MiG-29s would hang around for only 20 mins.

NDTV reporting IAF used standoff weapons, reaching targets as far as 100KM away. As per their sources Mirages necessary did not go too deep into PoK.

Chetak...this topic is OT for this thread but make no mistake...Dokalam ended up being a standoff only and only because China blinked and deliberately declined to escalate. China knew that if they had escalated, eent ka jawaab pahtar se milta. And discretion being the better part of valor, they slunk off with their dignity in tatters. Chinese knew very well that Modi, when he stopped them would have taken them on militarily if China had decided on that course.

(Modi drew his pistol after Uri itself. This time around, no one had any doubt that he would do it again, this includes the Indian janata, Pappu, Mamatha, Mulayam Singh, Sonia and including the Pakistani civilian and military goverments. OIC can pass a resolution....but on what ...PAkistan has given India plausible deniability....funnily enough).

We should dedicate this to Afghan, Iran along with us. Just to throw more salt on wound.

This place is closer to Abbottabad where Bin Laden was shot dead. Let's start using strikes on Pak or PoP (Paki occupied Pakistan) in the thread title.

Of course, runditv would know as their reporters with satellite phones were already at the target site. :rotfl:

Any of runditv's "sources" would have been long court martialled.

If they don't have news, they will have to make it up, no??

otherwise, how can they justify all their offshore and dubious funding

Am pretty sure all 3 targets would be struck more or less simultaneously by splitting the 12 aircraft into 3 groups. IAF planners would have wanted to minimise the time they spent in enemy airspace.
Not to dispute what you are saying that the bloody pakis are cowards :D

Furthest target Balakot is just about 50 km from the LOC (other 2 targets are within artillery range of the border). Factor in the standoff launch ranges of the PGMs, and PAF's ORP reaction time - very difficult for the PAF to respond effectively. Good target selection as well on the part of the IAF.


They have hit 3 sets of targets. So, there would have been time to respond. Judging by the PAFs adroit thinking as during the time of Kargil, they will not engage until and unless the odds favor them.

Apparently, F-16's were scrambled but ran away: https://twitter.com/ANI/status/1100264411040702465

Sources: Pakistani F16s were scrambled to retaliate against IAF Mirage 2000s but turned back due to size of Indian formation. Western Air Command coordinated operation.

Best part is based on this event, another round of stock taking will happen, more emergency purchases etc, orders made, our forces preparedness will rise further. If Pakistan were not such idiots, they would understand this and not keep provoking us.

But they are short sighted donkeys who got used to MMS et al's cowardice and conning his predecessors, and hence they remain obsessed with proving their racial and religious superiority to a country whose people, culture and society have left these idiots behind in the dust.

If so, I hope there is escalation to end PAF first, followed by taking PA totally apart. Enough!


Heres how it would have gone down.
A 12 ship formation of Mirage 2000s, including escorts, armed to bear with Micas and EW pods, escorting the core strike package.
Behind them, a valhalla of already assembled Sukhois with A2A gear & with some aircraft carrying those giant SAP pods.
Coordinated by Nethra.
A few A2A Refuellers in the Air and with Choppers with CSAR Commando teams (mix of IA SF and Garud) waiting for orders.

PAF detected the above. Realized an angry elephant was charging into its way. Picked up its skirts. And ran to the side to take a tinkle in the bushes in fear.

And that was that. All this talk of JF-17 retaliation is bunkum. :lol:

I have a strong feeling that these ops were routinely planned some time ago with mulltiple targets preselected, IA, IN resources, allocated and simply awaiting the political release as also the most effective/appropriate target selection.

Absolutely.....gone are the days of nuclear flash point, war is not an option, use of IAF is inherently escalatory and crossing IB is equal to starting a war.

The mental chains that we had put on ourselves have been removed.

Chetak, it was Aero India which prevented these strikes from going ahead immediately, they had to wait till all the delegates headed back. Cancelling the show would have forewarned the Pakis as well.

Am so glad to see our military commanders being given the freedom to devise and deliver appropriate responses. A less obvious benefit of the earlier surgical strikes and these airstrikes is that it will push our military planners to develop even more options, capabilities and technologies to deliver harder and more robust responses to the pakistanis in future.

The Chanakyan way is to always be the victim. Let the Paki's retaliate before escalating. Use their retaliation to not just give them a bloody nose, but bash their face in.

Great find Mohit. Looks like it was an established base with a lot of personnel. Hope the casualty count is high.
