All credit to Anantha Krishnan's M Twitter feed (@writetake).

Here is a clear picture of the IN Sea Harrier with Derby and Python combo on the outboard pylons with twin racks:

Interestingly, this Sea Harrier does NOT have the extended IFR probe installed as they are probably installed only when required.

Excellent! the first picture that confirms that the Python V is already in IN service..should hopefully see that combo on the Tejas Mk1..that dual rack is another feature the Tejas really needs.

That looks more like R.550 Magic-2 to me.

Python-5 looks a whole lot different:

Yes, on a closer look, that does look like the R.550 Magic-2 - I stand corrected. Thank you.

The hunt for visual confirmation of Pythons in service with the Indian Navy continues...

Carrying on the Longewalla a little bit further.
Due to circumstances I happened to visit the officers mess of various Artillery regiments and a very consistent painting of Longewalla was that of a HAL Krishak light plane flown by Major Atma Singh who was acting as Forward Air Controller (FAC) directing Hunters and Maruts. The painting showed him angling off Longewalla with Hunters diving and smoke rising from the burning tanks.

yes, everybody blows their trumpet but in that painting i always saw a coming together of various arms.

Air OP, + Infantry with the IAF.
Combined Arms Operations.

That painting was the best proof of pudding.

It would have been more symbolic if they had based the Su-30's in Arunachal and flown near North Arunachal border.

Apparently impressed with his passion for IAF planes during a conversation, CAS extended an invitation for a sortie which was duly accepted by Rijiju.

Plus it's good PR. He's fit. Could be an actual pilot except for the eyeglasses maybe. There's a side by side pic of kitted Rijju walking to the aircraft and a soldier caryrying AK Antony like a rag doll... Somewhere on Twitter. Very effective.

Added later: Shyte this is OT, it's a thread only for images. Please let's take all discussions elsewhere.
