Shivji: Re. the Maratha LI videos posted by you



What year/era are these from ? Are these privately circulated videos (or from defence libraries) or recording, say, from Doordarshan ?

The main reasons that I ask are:
- the SLR simulator and indoor firing range
- the hit recording system, shown in the field exercise

Question to gurus: How widespread are these in IA regimental centres ?

Geez, the interviewer seems a bit pushy, cutting them off all the time. She's just a little too cheery.

You can see the NYT's blatant propagandism here.

When the same NYT talks about Europe, then they go out of their way to downplay the record of European fascists states in WW2, taking pains to emphasize that remembering European fascism only serves to undermine the memory of what was suffered under the communist oppression that followed.

Read the NYT regularly -- and I do -- and you'll see that this is a recurrent theme with them on this topic.

So there is a blatant double standard to which European and Asian nations are held, when it comes to war crimes. And this is due to ATLANTICISM and the ATLANTICIST BIAS of entities like NYT.

It's called the Gryphon, a man-portable jet-wing:

It's being developed by ESG for special forces applications.
It has a gap in which the pilot's parachute fits in.

Video of the assassination attempt on the late PM Rajiv Gandhi in Sri Lanka
During the Guard of Honor the sailor tried in a desperate attempt to kill him with the bayonet. Quick action by One of the Officer and one of the security guard's saved him on that day.

DD has a better view/video. The Guy didnt try to 'kill him with bayonet' , he actually reversed his rifle to use it like a club 'to whack him on the head'.

For some strange reason Rajiv Gandhi also walked too close to the guard of honour, weaving in and out of the first and second parts of the contingent (usually a row of solders with a single officer standing in front) and he went behind the third officer - it was almost like, 'here I come, please whack me' :D. It was so strange that even India Today did a small piece on that complete with a diagram on how he walked at the guard of honor..

The rifle hit him on his shoulder - only his reflexes saved a split head that day. The security guys then charged the assailant - india today mentioned that all the security guys were on top ofthe sailor and if he had had an accomplice, it would be a different story..

In an interview after that incident Rajiv Gandhi said that he saw something coming out of the corner of his eye - perhaps a reflection from the aviator shades he was wearing, and that helped him react.

I saw the report on the BBC in the UK and it was shown as a humorous tailpiece indicative of the monkeying around that ex-colonial governments get up to. The announcer has a big grin and said "Coming up - presenting arms with a difference"

Even at that time, I thought his proximal security team did a good job in prioritizing the threat, isolate him real fast and form the phalanx? Even the video shows that at the very end. Only the designated "grappler" bought down the assailant. So an accomplice *might* not have found it that easy to follow through.

btw, I too never liked the idea of him walking so close to those dudes who were never happy with us, that too without his proximate team.

And another curious thing in the video is the VIP briefcase. MP5 or "Football"? :twisted:

It's 8-15 now - and I have been watching for 15 min - it's not happening for some reason. Not in India at least.

Last week, the military newspaper Navy Times revealed that the online mapping site Google Earth carried a satellite photo that showed the exposed propeller of a U.S. nuclear submarine in drydock. The propeller is considered to be highly sensitive military technology.

It might be interesting to open a new thread to see some of the videos of real time targeting / firing (from Iraq/Afghanistan). Very enlightening to see how fast authorization is requested and cleared to take out targets of interest.

Some U.S. Marines, pinned down by an insurgent sniperon top of the building decided that theyd had enough of an Iraqi sniper. They marked this location with a smoke grenade and called for close air support.

Old video of an F-16 taking out 30 insurgents

http://my.break.com/media/view.aspx?ContentID=328263

Arabic news media challenged that these weren't insurgents but a wedding procession. Nevertheless it takes all of 10 seconds from requesting authorization to deploying the weapon and another 10 seconds thereafter.

Viral video of the apache helicopter in action taking out four iraqis. I'll try and find the full video which is more interesting. The pilot sees one of them throw something that looked like a weapon in the field. He requests authorization to engage the target before weapons free.
