Since its GRSE, it should be INS Kamorta or any other P 28. Saw this pic on chhindits blog too and posted in Naval thread.

Superb A2A pic of our new Mi-17V

No spit and polish for these workhorses, they look grimy already!

Note the "dolphin nose" and armour protection for the crew

Interesting photograph!
The serial number has been photochopped over.
Also, there is, what looks like, a bank of loudspeakers under the fuselage. Never seen that before on IAF choppers.
Maybe a few of these are spec'd for psy ops?

That's a Ka-28 not Ka-31.

Ka-31 has a different nose and distinctive underbelly retractable radar.

some hi-res views of the cockpit of the IAF Il-76, shot during Red Flag 2008

http://www.aame.in/2012/02/il-76-aircra ... ckpit.html

Does this portion of the aircraft below the pilot have any specific name, other than cockpit?

I think that is the navigator station under the cockpit. Those array of glass windows looking down and forward is for landmark/visual navigation if electronic navigation is not possible. Those windows can also be used for just observation of the land/sea features below. All Il-76's have this feature. Those that are converted to AWACS such as the IAF Falcons have these windows replaced with radar or other electronic devices.

^^^TU-142s also have a forward section in the nose for Master Observer (IN name for Navigator).

Check here:http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-photos/middle/3/8/8/1535883.jpg. One walks through the gap between the pilots into the navigator station.

He sees outside through forward section of the nose:

Is that his fault? Next day he may be sitting in a tank or a submarine, should the defense minister get training to operate everything? or isn't it enough for him to go there, show his support and leave the rest to the trained men!

I just didn't see the point in mocking him!

Saar joke may be on you. NVGs have a day time cover with a pinhole to let in light so that the sensitive light amplification tube is protected. Any TFTA strong men will become blind if they lift the lens cover in daylight an the intensifier tube light may get shortened.

For example:
The AN/PVS4 is equipped with a Day Light Lens Cover that allows day time sighting in of the units or for daytime operation of the sight. It may be necessary to use this adapter under extremely bright nighttime conditions. The adapter consists of three hole sizes spaced evenly around the periphery, which passes by 3 larger aperture holes and 3 dark glass lenses to allow for 6 different levels of light reduction into the scope.

As a result, the AN/PVS-4 can be used in lighting conditions ranging from midday-sun in the desert, through to very-bright-moonlight and high levels of urban lighting. Under moonlight or lower conditions, the AN/PVS-4 can be used without the adaptor and the ABC (Automatic Brightness Controls) will reduce the gain, although the image may be too bright for the reticle to show correctly

Also:
http://www.nightvision.com/products/mil ... _F7001.pdf
Pinholed Rubber Objective Lens Cap – The weaponsight has a rubber objective lens cap that has a pinhole in the center. The pinhole allows the cap to serve as a daylight training aid. The lens cap flips up for night use and remains secured to the objective lens.
