Risky to park them (8 out of 12 on order) in close proximity like that. A preemptive strike or terrorist attack could deal a massive blow to the IN.

^^ Indeed

That is how US aircraft at Pearl Harbour were destroyed via sympathetic detonation. And we had a similar case in Kalaikunda where a MiG-27 crashed into a bunch of parked MiG-27s.

This seems to be a publicity shot, and INS Rajali at Arakonnam is a large WW2 base to support operations against Japanese in Arakan/Burma/Singapore, and has ample dispersals and hardened shelters.

Even our UAV base - INS Parandu - was built by the Maharaja of Ramnad and later expanded by the British in WW2.

Camouflage to confuse with civil airlines. Also, this aircraft may be converted from a civil plane.

It is a new one. The first six had serial numbers ranging from KC-3801 to KC 3806.

Is there a picture of KC-3807? Then this one (KC-3808) will be the second one from the second batch. I believe one additional C-130 was purchased to replace the one that crashed. Then there is another one - from the first batch - that damaged its wing. I do not know if that has been made air worthy again.

The wing damage happened during taxiing at Thoise.
The plane was inspected and then flew to Hindon all fine. It was airworthy just fine

Fellow Rakshaks....feast on your eyes on the Do 228 of the Indian Navy....

Cobras (Dorniers - Maritime Recce ac) of Indian Navy "INAS 310" were accorded a ceremonial welcome at Porbandar yesterday. Cobras based in Hansa, Goa since 1961 till date, now in a new lair. Fangs just as sharp ✈!
