These are perfectly valid points you make.Hi,
What a poorly written gutless piece----.
The fear of deep strike----in the heartland---the multiplier effect of the panic factor---the sense of insecurity and the terror of enemy strike that would result in chaos deep inside the territories is worth a one way trip for any deep strike aircraft pilot.
See---the poster has no combat or service experience---all his information is verbal---it is not 'attained'---that is why it is all fluff----there is not much substance to it many a times---.
Why does pakistan need deep strike capability aircraft---because the enemy has a very large area to protect---and in that large area---there are many many vulnerable targets to be protected---and each major target in the deep strike zone---is like the FEMORAL artery---so far away from the heart---but deadly when cut off----.
So---to protect that femoral artery---the enemy has to move its major assets and disperse it---and when it disperses its assets over a large area---the assets thin out---which means that they cannot give out the needed protection.
The enemy in its current form can keep its heavy assets farther back---with a long loiter time and at discretion refuelling capability---its aircraft can stay farther out and make a dash when needed.
The air bases closer to the border are just for show now---by the enemy---. Their assets will be moved back immediately once the hostilities start---. The enemy is not going to put itself in fighting from a position of weakness.
Readers should think about it---.
Deep strike mission capability creates a fear of its own deep down into the bowels of the enemy---.
Salahuddin Ayubi was shocked into disbelief and fear when he found a momento from the Old man of the mountain on his pillow case---. That was a successful deep strike mission. It made him change his priorities of attacking the stronghold of the assassins.
When one reads the military history spread over the centuries---the most important and the most cherished missions are the deep strike missions of the opposing forces and the effects they had on those receiving them.
It brings the warm---ugly---stenchy rotten breath of death and destruction to areas that were never familiar of its existence---and the panic and fear that it creates in the wealthy and upper echelons of the society spreads like wild fire amongst the peers and then travels down to the ordinary---.
It is just like slipping a sharp knife side to side under the overhang of a fat belly and see the slippery and slithering guts spill out.
Oscar---you are such a fake---you have no clue about real combat.
