    INDIAN Emergency Services (POLICE, AMBULANCE,FIRE)

    These guys are QRT? I thought all QRT members wore the UCP camo as standard.

    INDIAN Emergency Services (POLICE, AMBULANCE,FIRE)

    The CRPF QRTs need to get rid of Patkas, AKs & MP5s. Should get new ACH helmets and Tavor X95s in their place. Or atleast the FAB Defense upgrade for AKs if they seriously don't want to let go of the 7.62x39 round.

    In Pictures: Modern Indian Naval Shipbuilding

    1. The Kamorta, as I said, is an ASW corvette. And it's size and displacement shows that P28 is designed to be ocean-going vessel with high endurance. Meaning it will either be working as part of Carrier Group, or will be working together with a Main Surface Combatant (destroyer or frigate). No...

    P28 is an ASW corvette and doesn't require SSMs.

    In Pictures: Modern Indian Naval Shipbuilding

    Are you nuts?? Only thing low is Kolkata's SAMs (only 32 VLS) but that's okay because Kolk is not an AAW destroyer. When it comes to offensive armament Kolk has 16 SSMs - that's twice as many as comparable DDGs like Type-45 carry. And Shivalik has 8 SSMs and 56 SAMs. Show me where armament is...

    India’s Next Generation Destroyers (NDG) Project waits for Government Clearance : Report

    Arey bhai...who's saying we're going to use it now??? It will be a decade plus by the time these ships start showing up. By that time we don't know how much LASTEC's designs will change/develop. Even US is still only putting experimental/tech-demonstrator laser models on their ships.

    India’s Next Generation Destroyers (NDG) Project waits for Government Clearance : Report

    LASTEC (DRDO lab) has come out with the Aditya GDL (Gas Dynamic Laser) as well as Chemical Oxygen Iodine Lasers (COIL) models. Miniaturization of the support infrastructure for these lasers will take time, but work is on. Don't forget we're not talking about building the NGD tomorrow. Most...

    Step aside, Apache - this is the new armed scout helicopter from Airbus

    The title is misleading....the H145M cannot compete with Apache directly. But however the writer does have a point - the Apache is too big and heavy to use as a Scout helicopter. The US Military may have used Apache in that role due to lack of immediate replacement....but other Apache operators...

    India's Navy Just Built a Second Nuclear Missile Submarine

    I have heard that the 2nd SSBN has twice the firepower of the Arihant (8 silos compared to Arihant's 4 silos). The reactor power of Arihant was around 85mW...the Aridhaman is estimated to be +100mW output. But we may never know for sure. This is what our current SSBN plans look like: 1 x S2...

    Indian Special Forces

    Yes, compared to ACH, the PASGT is of a previous generation. Heavier and offers lesser protection against many calibers. But the new(er) ECH is even more advanced, lighter & offers better protection even against rifle-caliber rounds. In US Army service it has been PASGT >>> ACH >>> ECH. It...
