All the questions were asked by Brig Singh during this press conference. Though media was not allowed to utter a word.

Looks like my Pak message was deleted from Nukked-51 thread with other Napak messages.

I'm so happy to see a warbird (Mig-23) at my college VNIT(Old VRCE).

Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers stand guard outside a polling station at Anantnag, south of Srinagar on April 30, 2009. Stifling security was enforced in Kashmir as India's staggered general elections moved to districts of the Muslim-majority region known as hotbeds of separatist militancy. Thousands of troops were deployed in the southern Kashmiri constituency of Anantnag-Pulwama segment, where nearly all 1,500 polling stations were rated as 'hyper-sensitive.' Voting in Kashmir has been divided into five stages, with most separatist groups supporting a boycott of the polls in line with their opposition to Indian rule in the region.

Indian soldiers stand guard at a polling station whilst a voter waits to cast his ballot during the third phase of polling in Mumbai on April 30, 2009. Millions of voters joined the third wave of India's month-long elections, with security ramped up as the staggered polls moved to the volatile Kashmir Valley and the financial capital Mumbai. Nearly 145 million people are eligible to vote in phrase three of the five-stage national ballot, which is widely expected to result in a shaky coalition government that will have to steer the country through an economic slump. The third round saw India's two main parties, the ruling Congress and the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), go head to head in a number of key states which will have a major bearing on the national outcome.

OFB has been making small runs of Indian FAL with an orange-ish furniture for about a decade now... but this seems to be a particularly light one. Probably a play of light and some fading.

Some pics of my models from Silicon Valley Scale Modelers Classic Kickoff meet 2009. Unfortunately they were the only Indian entries in the whole show. Jingos really need to do something else besides write code, diagnose diseases, count stock options and rant on B-R :P

Diorama of the Battle of Asal Uttar (1/72 scale) . I had included a small 1-page description of the historical battle and what the diorama scene depicted in particular. That got a lot of interested visitors and questions....none of them had of course heard of the battle.

IAF Hawker Hunter of the Thunderbolts aerobatic team (1/144 scale). Tiny aircraft and hence, not that great of a paint job since it is hand-painted onlee. I need to seriously invest in an airbrush. :((

India is holding its 15th parliamentary general elections in five phases on April 16, April 23, April 30, May 7 and May 13 and the new parliament will be constituted before June 2. Separatists oppose the holding of elections in Kashmir, arguing that they will not resolve the future of the disputed territory, held in part by India and Pakistan but claimed in full by both. They have called for a boycott and a 50-hour long strike, starting the evening of May 5, as elections for the sensitive Srinagar segment take place on May 7.

@ Raja Bose: Thats a nice model. I built this 1:100 MiG 29 a few months back. Maybe I should convert it to IAF colours.

^^^ hmm...1:100....is that a standard scale? There are very few aircraft models in IAF colours mainly coz: (1) Jingos are more interested in video games and cubicle warming endeavours (2) Kits rarely come with IAF decals hence you have to design and make your own most of the times, esp. if the scale is 1:32 or 1:144. The IAF modeling gallery on B-R has been stagnant for a while...maybe you can post your pics of the Mig-29 there.

^^Probably not a standard scale. I think it goes more like 1:32/48/72/144. And yes, IAF colours are almost non existent. I had built 1:144 models of the MiG 25 and Su-33 a couple of years back. Due to inexperience ruined both trying to convert them to IAF colours. However I will make an effort on the MiG 29. If results are good, will put them up!

They may be regular fleet sailors on VBSS duty (do I see a shirt cuff under the black overalls of one guy?). Have never seen MARCOS with sterling though have seen IN sailors with them.

It's airshow season again our way, and I was posting some pictures from my most recent visit to a Canadian airforce base in Comox when I came across some pictures from my visit to the Paris airshow and Northern India in 2007, related to the Indian Armed Forces.

Have posted them in the Misc. Aviation & Military folder.

an ex-marcos once told me that they don't bother to standardise on any one weapon, but train on all available. in the normal penetration role, they expect to pick up weapons along the way or make do with things they find as well as what they bring along

That goes for most branches of the Indian Armed Forces. But the above refers to training on different weapon systems incase of non availability of small arms under whatever circumstance. However Marcos's primary SMG is the MP-5. If they were to be deployed on these Ex. They would get deployed with their Kit.

Thats true however in exercises such as VBSS training they will use their usual weapons load. Sterling is not part of their kit...actually never has been.

Hi Lal Mohan, I have very limited knowledge in this but one thing I do know for a fact that most special forces will NEVER pick up weapons along the way for the very simple reason that dependability of a weapon is less dependent on its make and model and lot more on its maintenance and upkeep. most spec op units have a very high standard that they will not depend on picking up weapons "along the way" unless they were captured and have escaped or they have lost their weapon (in which case they might not even bother reporting back to their unit, the section leader would make life a living hell). Even when it comes to using mags they will first take from a fellow soldier and then maybe off the ground. Unless they are "undercover" they will bring along a sufficient weapons load to last them the duration of the mission if possible.

I recently saw these commemorative plaques at the Dehradun Rly Station. All commemorating localites who were granted gallantry awards in the 1965 war. Upon inquiring from the railways staff, no one seemed to know as to how and when these came into being. Just wondering if anyone has seen such plaques at any other rly stations?
