  • Sir I have a question for you. When ever I used to talk about VLS I coined a term which is universal VLS. That is a VLS system which if needed can carry Air Defence Missiles and when needed can carry long range land attack cruise missiles.

    My question to you is does that kind of VLS exist. That let say we place them in our Type 54 A. When our mission requires we place HQ 9 in those VLS and when mission requires HQ 9 is taken out of those VLS and replaced by a 1500 KM range Babur ??? Does that kind of VLS exist or could it be made ???

    The concept of a universal VLS does exist, but in the US/Europe. In the East, I don't think it's a thing yet, but I bet the Chinese are studying the idea and would look to implement it.
    Hi Bilal, any plans to open your Quwa or personal twitter account DMs, so fans of the website can interact with you? I think it will increase engagement and website visibility.

    Yes, but I'm constrained on time.

    I wanted to ramp up a stronger free content side via emails, YouTube videos, and podcasts, but I don't have the resources (in terms of time or capable people) to do it consistently. If you want to take charge on this front, we can discuss that.

    Understandable. Unfortunately, I don’t have the required capacity or time. But I think a podcast would be a very fine idea. You have such a great product and I have been a fan from day 1 (when I sent you a private message on PakDef)

    Thanks bro!

    Salam brother, wanted to ask you since I'm sure you know about it in more depth than any online researching would lead me to: what's Turkey's arms policy towards India like?

    I was under the impression that it was totally zero-tolerance in terms of not selling any offensive weaponry, but some online pics have led me to believe otherwise.

    I think at the policy level, the Turks are ambivalent -- they don't care. It may get murky at the company level, e.g., some contractors may have business with Pakistan, so they'll avoid India.

    I see, but if they are open to sales at policy level, than doesn't that conflict with what they say, referring specifically to how pro-Pak, Erdogan's Kashmir narrative is?

    I was thinking of creating a thread on this issue, as I have seen pictures of Indian SF personnel deployed on the LOC with assault rifles equipped with MKEK UBGLs. Obviously that should irk any Pakistani, as these are being used against PA and IMO needs to be raised
    Respected Sir, I wanted to discuss with you that if China offers J-20 to PAF in the future(post 2027) then will PAF go for it? If yes then what advantages will it offer over J-35?
    _NOBODY_

    @Bilal Khan (Quwa) Of course if J-20 is offered then PAF will most probably ask for some modifications. Will a J-20 that is modified for PAF be better than J-35?
    Bilal Khan (Quwa)
    Bilal Khan (Quwa)
    I think it'd serve a different need. The J-20 is a heavyweight fighter (likely MTOW of around 35,000 kg), while the J-35 will be a medium-weight fighter (25,000 to 28,000 kg MTOW). The J-35 will be lower-cost, not just to procure but also operate, so the end-user could probably field those in larger numbers. You'd operate both.

    @Bilal Khan (Quwa) If AZM turns out to be a medium weight fighter then purchasing J-20 makes more sense to me. J-20 can finally give PAF the ability to strike deep into enemy's territory. For me seeing J-20 in PAF's colors would be a dream come true.
    Salaam bro,

    I would like to see your assessment about the political atmosphere for UAE and SMQ going of. What you see the long-term game being played?

    I feel Pakistan is in a very critical position at the moment, and we will have to chose one side for the final play.
    Hello sir, what do you think of Pakistan precise targeting of Indian airbases by long range MLRS with GPS/GLONASS guidance? Turkish systems advertise a CEP of 10 meters and can mostly likely hit bunkers, fortified structures, and take out runways.
    Bilal Khan (Quwa)

    It should be an option, but whether the Army thinks along those lines is another variable entirely.

    Whether Pakistan pursues it or not it has great potential for becoming a viable force multiplier. I may make a thread soon about it but thanks for your opinion.

    Excellent stuff. I was thinking along the same lines, but I would keep the possibility of NORINCO/Chinese and Serbian options open as well.

    I cant find any info regarding the purchase of AH-4 howitzers , would you have any info ? given the possibility that they would be used to shoot extended range shells.
    Bilal bhai,

    Does Stealth have a point about the construction quality of JF-17 or he's mostly looking from a aesthetic point of view what looks appealing to the eyes? And the concerns he raised about the Stabilizer being in a different place now and its aerodynamic profile? Whats' your opinion and have you spoken to PAF individuals who have flown it, etc.

    The "fantasy" narrative is BS.

    You don't need to go far to find some documentation on Azm.

    So, for a start, check out PAC's website to see how they've organized AvRID for the job.

    Next, consult the MoDP yearbook for last year, AvRID's status update:

    "First cycle of conceptual design phase has been completed. The first configuration that was designed based on the challenging performance requirements of PAF will go through three more cycles within the conceptual design using higher fidelity analysis tools and codes.”

    There are no models because the project is still in its early stages. The PAF may roll Azm into the TF-X for the sake of getting R&D support, but as it stands today, Azm is an original design with work being done primarily in Pakistan.
    Hey man, when you put up a new excerpt can you post the full article on the 'premium' list. I can't view the stuff from nov. 14 and 19.
    Bilal Khan (Quwa)
    Bilal Khan (Quwa)
    Yo, the second link at the end of the excerpts should take you straight to the articles. Otherwise, you'll need to Crtl-F on the article list page.
    Hi- since the website hasn’t been updated for couple weeks now(oct 21-nov 8), mind updating paying members on what’s going on? In the future, can you post brief note advising members of any lapse in updates? Thanks

    Bilal Khan (Quwa)
    Apologies. Will update Friday/Sat EST. Resume from Monday. Basically, illness and injury.
