Any civilian or national infra hit would be a huge escalation. I doubt they will, but if they do then that would be suicidal for them

Which also shows the brilliance of our approach - to use identical aircraft for weapons delivery, engagement/air support and radar (with follow-up flank of Su-30s). It will confuse the hell out of the enemy - that is assuming the enemy is awake.

All you need to know about Balakot that IAF airstrike destroyed

Sources said terrorist launchpads in Balakot, Chakothi, and Muzaffarabad were completely destroyed in the IAF air strikes, and that Jaish-e-Mohammed control rooms were also destroyed.


No, only Balakot was hit. This was the initial rumors, which were clarified by FS press conference.

Oops, sounds so crazy does it? Actually I thought France supporting us heavily in the UN, and our using M2k for the attack had something to do with each other, also to showcase the Rafale. I also need some sleep... cheers

Read somewhere that IAF dropped 6 bombs.
Assuming that the pics Pak is showing of damaged trees is true, then that means we have 5 bombs that needed to find their targets.


What would the radius of damage a 1000kg bomb be in plains. On a hilly area it will only be less.

Pakistan army confirms Indian jets dropped 'four bombs'
He claimed that the Indian planes were in Pakistan's airspace for "just 4 minutes" and went back when challenged by the Pakistani aircraft.

Ghafoor said that Indian jets first tried to enter Lahore-Sialkot sector, while another formation of jets came close to Okara-Bahawalpur area of international border but found Pakistan air force ready and went back.

"Then a third formation was picked in Muzaffarabad sector which was heavier ... It was repulsed, but while going back they jettisoned their payload and four bombs fell in Jabba, near the town of Balakot, causing no casualties or damage," he said.

He asserted that there was no strike but only the payload fell.

Ghafoor said that he was ready to take the media to the place where payload fell to show that there was no damage done, but cancelled the trip due to bad weather. He added that apart from the media, defence attaches can also go.

The spokesman also rejected the Indian claim about targeting any infrastructure and said their claim of 350 dead is also "false."

He asserted that Pakistan was ready to follow what Prime Minister Khan said that Islamabad would not think about retaliation but retaliate. "They have not attacked, so why should we retaliate immediately?" he said. :mrgreen:

I don’t know enough about PAF or IAF equipment or tactics anymore to get into an intelligent discussion with you about this, but I would like to point out that, there is intensive firing going on across the LOC, all military installations have gone dark, there are reports of jets on CAP over J&K - all of which points to India expecting Pakistan to do something and that something is likely to be from the air.

Chatter on Twitter is that India is expecting a missile strike on one of its bases in J&K. This would be a huge escalation...attacking a mil target of a nation. I seriously hope it doesn't happen...hoping Imran is not a fool even though he is said to be hot headed.

By this logic it is in Pakistan’s interest to have their F16 shot down. By losing their F16 they can ensure that India doesn’t by F16.

NSA head Doval confirmed key targets were hit in Balakot.
We do not have much information on how big this node was in the terror network.
But to put such assets to target it could mean it was a nerve center.
Wonder how big a setback it is.

What 'll the pigs do?
Move these training centres into civilian areas?

You may have a point. India today is still discuss 3 locations.

Question is what is their target of choosing?

1. A military target in J&K.

2. Bait, and jump some lone flights on CAP or interception.

3. Another terrorist attack, an IAF target. Coupled with deniability, designed to embarrass for IAF.

1, or 2, will invite heavy military response. These are high risk low gain options, but will reinstate their image of poor victims.

3 is highly probable, but will invite similar air strikes in PoK, and will make Porkies a defacto terrorist state.


My guess is they'll try to release some babur from well within their territory in an attempt to hit something in India, prolly a military target

The Pak army, in a press conference held to deny the Indian claims, ended up admitting + that Indian fighter jets did drop four bombs.:mrgreen:

Using Mirage 2000 has both symbolic and practical significance.
1. It is a 1970s aircraft (so is F-solah). Much older than Su-30MKI, MiG 29 etc.
2. It was the choice in Kargil to use laser bum on the Pakis perched on ridges.
3. Laser bomb packages are left over also from 1999 (now 18, going on 19 years).

Really continues what should have been done in 1999: bomb the pakistan out of the terrorists deep inside Pakistan.

So now we know that a flight of 12 1970s-era aircraft carrying 1000kg bombs of 1990s vintage, can sail through Pak airspace past Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Abbotabad at night with the cream of the PAF both "alert" (a subjective term) and "scrambled". Were detected for a full 4 minutes (out of their est. 15 minute mission time inside the Pak side of LOC). PAF could do a sum total of ZERO, because apart from the 6 bomber Mirage 2000s, there were also 6 Mirage-2000s in CAP mode scaring the pakistan out of the PAF JF-117s and F-16s.

Where was their AWACS I wonder.
Well, it's pretty obvious what happened. All but one PAF pilot "scrambled" and took off towards the WEST on full a/b.
One did not take off: the Future Air Marshal described in the story posted by UBCN just minutes b4 the raid actually occurred. 3AM, the Indians came, just as UBCN predicted.
