Allow me to hazard a guess. Either the Gentleman is a service officer (maybe), or (more likely) that the sailors are saluting the lady as she boards the vessel. Don't forget that the age of chivalry is not yet dead, atleast not as far as the Indian Armed Forces are concerned :).

Chaps,

Can anyone ID the IA jeeps below? What make are they?

Image

Image

Are these normally operated by the IA or only SF? They had the word "Recce" written on them.

Also, note the Rod like structures they carry. Any idea what these are for?

U.S. Marine Sgt. Nicholas Bender launches a Raven surveillance drone from Marine base perimeter on March 21, 2009 near the remote village of Baqwa, Afghanistan. Marines from the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment use the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to get real time intelligence on Taliban movements. The Marines are operating in Farah Province of southwest Afghanistan and are seeing a spike in Taliban attacks against American forces with the onset of the spring "fighting season."

These are Rovers belonging to Signals regiment. Rod structures are extension rods for communication antenna.

Earlier Singals Rovers were based on Jongas, now they have shifted to Jeeps.

Its either what Sid just explained or they are part of an Armoured/Mechanized Unit. They have Recce Troops mounted on Mahindra Jeeps (used to be Jongas earlier). Though I find strange that Signal Rovers carry Recce tag on them.

Is it the signals corps that is in charge of BFSR? (Location is somewhere in the northern/north-central region an unspecified time ago.)

Perhaps it is best to avoid public identification of scientists with the LeT deciding to hit individual scientists.

Making a move on India's scientists and researchers isn't a red line for this nation? Threats apart, if an active programme to target such people of national importance is detected by RAW should in itself automatically trigger a set of punishing responses to pakistan.

Now pakistan it seems has given up all pretenses of using the jihadi groups as non state actors - they are openly using them as their strategic forces.

If I may add to what has been posted ^^^, IA has what are called the SATA (Surveillance & Target Acquisition) Regiments which operate the BFSR and the WLR. The portable version of BFSR is held by the Infantry Regiments and used on the LOC. Infact, few days back saw Line Of Duty on Times Now and they showed Tactical Control Room of a unit on LOC. The center was receiving inputs from such a BFSR which also has Thermal Imager, unattended ground sensore, sensors on the fencing (which I think indicate a breach) and SIGNIT. Now we know why the piglets are having to take the hard and deadly winter route to infiltrate across the LOC.

A previous article featured a young Muslim girl whose father opposed education but whose mother scrimped and saved and educated her daughter.

She is now on the LeT hit list because of her work on the Agni missile.

I have deleted the various posts.

You said it dude. Remember the address of our fearless PM post Mumbai attack. Our Fearless PM proclaimed, "there will be cost....". Till this day he has not identified the culprit, what will it cost, what cost will terrorist pay. Don't forget the Pallu of Madam Gandhi, our PM can be seen behind that Pallu every time there is an innocent Indian Life lost.

Its a plane made of concrete (look carefully, no doors either). IIRC they have other mockups to train for interiors.

raja are you saying it has no doors because it is made of concrete or because you know it has none ?
surely if they want they can recreate the interiors inside a concrete a/c too, upto some extent.
p.s. there was such a concrete a/c at one of mumbai's parks, the insides were used by the locals for # 1 and 2 ! :oops:

sarabpal, a concrete one has some advantages of its own, little maintenance for one. :wink:
better ability to absorb punishment if live ammo is used.

Do you know for a fact that they don't?
Are you privy to all of their techniques and hardware available for their training?

Maybe all their learning here is how to mount the plane, and instead of having a rusty airframe, they figured its cost effective to build a concrete one instead.

If they get a real plane,we'll be complaining that its only a boeing 737, and not an Airbus.

And when they get both, we'll be complaining there's no live crew and real passengers in the training.

And once we get those, someone will complain about no actual terrorist available to train against.

Seriously people, enjoy the beautiful pictures on this thread, and quit micro-analyzing every little detail.


Oh and that Beas picture, absolutely freaking gorgeous...

AFAIK that plane is only for demo (no, I have not seen that thing up close though unlikely it has interiors). That pic is from one of their old raising days. Trust me NSG are not that daft :lol: ...they do train on the real stuff (and that includes many things besides aircraft).
