Just one small question, is this Ret Air force pilot Vijender Thakur the same pilot Raghu Nambiar refers to as a Mig 25 pilot who flew a Mig 25 low and slow to get a high resolution picture of Batalik sector which made the Mantho Dhalo Air Raid possible?

Probably. But even with the 117s, it is an absolute beast wrt TWR and achieves a climb rate of > 350m/s. Insane. I wonder what the climb rate will be with the izd30... :shock:

I think you mean PJ Thakur. When I searched for Wg Cdr PK Thakur, results regarding a retired IAF lady pilot came up. Could you PM me some information regarding the events for Batalik sector? I'm interested in that but, searching for that event only brings up a single sentence regarding Wg Cdr PJ Thakur being mentioned in dispatches.
