Thanks for the pics. Through those pics, I think we just got first glimpse of formation sign of 71 Mountain Division. The formation sign on the main entrance gate - black background, red ball with a 'sword' in upright position - may be the formation sign of 71 Mountain Division.

Thanks a lot for the images, appreciate your effort and that of the original poster, the place is so surreal and pure, no doubt the Chinese fools have their eyes set on it, after destroying what they had in their own country.

Does the serial no. give any hint on the number of units produced or at-least a ball park figure? Since it is randomly picked from production lot

Also the cameo on the missile looks geared more towards western sector than North East. At-least from an amateur's POV. Would like to know what the gurus say

^^Well, the A-I is always touted as "Pak specific" even by the GoI official mouthpieces. So no surprises about it being geared for western sector look

should be one of these sites
http://images.google.com/search?tbs=sbi ... 27&biw=946

Google Image search has a nifty feature whereby one can upload a picture & it will give you other places in the Internet where the image is avaialble. Works in most cases, more so if the pic in question is old, which in this case, it is

Just copy-paste the image URL into the dialog box

that is an Micro Tavor / X-95 carbine. The magazine is definitely for 5.56mm and not 9mm.

can anyone help identify these weapons?

The one at the bottom is a Paveway, i think [if so, model please?]

one the extreme right is a Python 4, though canard shape look different

^^the top picture L to R:
1. Either a Martel ARM or Sea Eagle AShM - a glance at the lower fuselage will tell us whether there is an intake (Sea Eagle) or not (Martel).
2. Super 530D semi-active BVRAAM
3. Matra 550 Magic II

Looks like an M2000 loadout...

BTW, I think the first 2 are practice/dummy rounds because of the colouration. The Magic II looks like the real deal.

Thanks Jaeger.

these indeed look like the 530D & Matra 550, though it appears the dummy weapons have a stubbier nose cone [or it could just be the viewing angle making it look stubby]
http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/Image ... 30D-2.html

same for the Sea Eagle [ i think that is the sea eagle. Martel's wings ted to taper further back]

Hiten,

Basically, Jaeger got it right.

Those are representative loadouts for a LCA mockup that was shown at Aero India many years back. The first two are a Sea Eagle and a Super 530D (one of the BVR weapon in IAF inventory at that time, apart from R-27R/ER for the MiG-29s). Both are dummies. Third is a Matra Magic 550 - II. Its an actual missile, even if an inert round.

That bomb is a Matra BGL-1000 LGB. We imported those for the Mirage 2000 to be used with the day only Atlis-2 Laser Designator pod.

http://www.acig.org/artman/uploads/os_vaj1_001.jpg

Presumably the IAF has made these compatible with its advanced Litenings which are now the standard pod used across the IAF fleet.

Thanks for the clarification Karan M ji

so these weapons shown aren't going to be certified for launch from the LCA. No wonder each time i looked up the weapon listed on the LCA's wiki page for visual similarity with the photo, none matched.

Also, if one could tell, what the green thing thing in the background is [upper portion of the photograph]? is it a drop tank or an unguided bomb. If a bomb, which one?

Hiten, pls no ji..

I don't remember what that green thing was...my memory suggests that it could have been a bomb. It could be a fuel tank as well as on this Jag (http://indianmilitarynews.files.wordpre ... jaguar.jpg) while they did display a bomb at another aero ind., as the orange one here. (http://www.acig.org/artman/uploads/os_lca2_001.jpg). The shape still suggests a fuel tank as later developed and fitted for..eg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc ... 1054_n.jpg
