this is completely wrong its not the F16 - its our Mig21. the wreckage has that curvy edged round thing thats the back of the engine, not the bigmouth. the sine wave thing is the flame stabilizer at core of tumansky R25 engine

see both wrecks fell in same area. pics all got mixed. the pic with officer on phone is the F16 engine case, the pic with guy taking cellphone pic is our Mig21


Yes GD, that tweet was wrong and probably unnecessary. But twitter is a battleground now with both sides filling it with outrageous claims and counterclaims. Obviously, you, me, Austin, Tsarkar and the rest of the old guard at BR know what is what.

But since it is already out there, we might as well not make it easy for the pakis to rebut. This one might be egregious enough that even a dimwit of a paki could pick up. But there might be others that are more subtle. We don’t want to do the pakis’ work for them.

I like to think I am not like this at other times (with friends and foes alike.) But this is not other times.

@tsarkar, why would a Mig-21 be carrying a drop-tank when it's on the tail of a F-16?

Get ready for a big one. I think it is a courtesy call before the storm.

isn't that why so many coal based power plants are being built by the cheeni??

They need the heating to keep the oil at a temperature that is conducive to pumping.

Good news of the release, but were they preempting 5 PM conf? Were we planning for something and now they have preempted us? Will never know I guess.

So they used Amraam's while we used R-73's, err. Large response from PAF 16 fighters means we hit something very important in our raids on 26th morning.

Exactly, a clever move to preempt the 5pm press conference. Lots of brown shalwaring taking place in Pindi because of the silence from India (which everyone including people here aren't happy with).

Let's not forget they tried to attack military installations, it's a clear case of escalation from their side, something that shouldn't be let off.

If true, there has to be a price that is being paid for this.

the pressure will be eased elsewhere or some economic concessions will be made somewhere maybe afghanistan??

My guess... we would have threatened to release detailed footage of the Balakot raid publicly if the WingCo was not released immediately. They would have figured it more important that the Balakot footage not released.

It's definitely a attempt to preempt the press conference at 5pm.

This is what Trump was talking about. De-escalation imminent.

Oh, well.

A bit anti-climatic, but it allows GOI to walk away with a win at the end.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan inside Pak National Assembly says Wing Commander Abhinandan would be handed over to India tomorrow as a ‘peace gesture’. Sources say it would be made into a big media spectacle at Wagah border to show international community. Everyone forgets Jaish?

:evil:

Remember the stunts they pulled with Cmdr Jadhav's family's visit?

Let's hope the Modi govt does not climbdown like previous ones.

wagah handover is ok but all indian public and media must be banned from it.
infact we need to insist he be handed to red cross at some neutral place

Yes, red cross without the spectacle. Parading him out is in any case a violation of the Geneva convention.

A welcome and expected step. They had to release WingCo Abhinandan and tried to pre-empt the 5PM conference.

Some serious ball-crunching must have been done behind the scenes to get them to do it. Most probably by Indians but there might've been some support by Americans as well since Doval talked to Mike Pompeo a while ago and Trump was expecting it too.

The only acceptable de-escalation gesture is for the Pakis to give us the heads of Hafiz Sayeed, Masood Azar and Dawood on a platter. Then we can think about cooling down.
