1995: VayuSena MiG 21 @ Avalon Airshow - RAAFB Williamtown, NSW, Osstraaya

Was a bit surprised to see it in, of all places, Osstraaya mayte!.
Photographer remarks on the photo: "this aircraft at that time was owned by a group of Qantas pilots and was based At RAAFB williamtown in NSW. It's still there as part of Fighter World musseum at williamtown" :idea:

So the Beretta MX4 has indeed made its way to India. The reports from last year of a large order from MHA were therefore correct.

Refer to the first picture.

Wiki says its only used by India. Though this could be wrong. No other country has plans to procure?

Could someone elaborate on what role is this weapon supposed to fulfill?? Its just a hi-tech machine pistol, afaik, the role quite nicely covered by the Uzi and Micro Uzi.. What was the need for this all new type in the inventory, i'll never be able to fathom..

Indian weapons purchases make a great deal more sense when viewed thru the prism of whose palms are being greased.

Not an entirely bad weapon, out performs the MP-5 any day and can be used with different caliber rounds. Good for close quarters.

How is it that the soldier on the far right is sitting while his boss is standing?

Sidharth said How is it that the soldier on the far right is sitting while his boss is standing?


Because he had the courage to stand up to the general('s orders) having Bangladesh liberated.

Sometimes I like the simpler uniforms of the past with the Ishapore slung across

maybe because that was my introduction to the IA.

I used to have a picture of a IA soldier guarding a refinery in Assam wearing that type of uniform, pouches and thinking that used to be so smart looking

@Khalsa....

The person u're pointing is Maj.Gen Gandharv Nagra,GOC 101 CZ who also became GOC of 43rd Mountain Brigade after Gurbux Singh was injured,practically Gen Nagra and Gen Sagath Singh were the field commanders in the entire eastern sector.

^^^Major General does not command a Brigade...he commands a division. And 101 Communication Zone was as good as a Corps (AFAIK) in 1971.
