Someone shared this picture on A$$book, from Akhnoor.

Is it 130mm M-46 ?

^ Jamwal,

> Well, sure looks like the M-46 - note the Single piece barrel.

> Upgunned 155mm and FH-77 have 2 piece barrels.

Baffle type muzzle brake is Soviet origin weapon. "Pepperpot" type is Eastern European - Yugoslav?

Question to Rohit Vats and other Gurus - can the Army move in only the required no. of Arty pieces into battle or does the full unit have to move into combat as an Arty Battery / Fire Squad, etc? I remember Siachen, 6 Guns were inducted together (1 battery).

Me thinks, this Jaguar is a new Jaguar and not one being upgraded... the primer, new wheels, landing gear as well as the open sections are ALL Spic and Span... But I haven't seen any open source info on HAL building new Jags in years... even news about the upgrade (DARIN III) with Honeywell engines has been only bad news.. any chailwala info?

I remember reading somewhere that HAL is only making two seater Jaguars as of now. So this must be some overhauling.

Lean and Mean is all fine and dandy but having your arm circumference as nearly the same as the magazine of the gun is a little too skinny :shock:

will they not be taken down easily in a fidayeen type attack with hardly any protection? They seem more like female version of SPG who wears no armor to show solidarity with the leader they are protecting

Jaguar build ended quite some time back and the line was converted to Hawk assembly, on completion of which the line is proposed to be modified for Rafale assembly/build.

Darin 3 is proposed upgrade for Batch 1 Jaguars.

We all thought Jag production ended years ago... But it looks like couple of birds are being built. Probably to replenish birds lost due to crashes

SPG doesn't use Tavors. They use the FN F2000 and P90.

Even the ones in "Civvies" wear body armour. You cant protect your Principal if you are dead. Specially if a High Velocity round has the ability go through you.

Does that camouflage not work in 21st century jungles then?

I can't tell the difference between what those men are wearing and what's on this page:

My bad, I meant Jungle boots, was not referring to the camo. They have been wearing these shoes for a long time.

These boots do not have a metal sheet in it to prevent a long Thorn from protruding thru the rubber sole. You must admit the shoes are different in the photo you posted.

I actually love jets who are worn out-- beaten down--- goes to show the workload they carry--- has a kind of its own appeal compared to nice primed immaculate ones...
