Indian Military this week - How quickly can you clear these deals?
MoD - Y E S
We need to thank the Galwan Martyrs for the changes that are taking place in the Indian Politico-Military thinking. The statement by RM that we are ready to fight on others land must be taken a serious note of. For a very longtime, due to Nehru and Britishers, we have been taught that India has never invaded a country in last 10K years of its existance. I want to Know what Did Bhagwaan Raam Do? What Did Hastinapur do when they invaded Gandhar to ask for the hand of Gandhari for Dhritrashtra? What did Cholas do in 3rd BC when they colonised whole of SE Asia right upto Phillipines? What did Vikramaditya do when he established his rule into Arabia including Saudi Arabia? What did some Rajputs do when the occupied and established a rule in Parts of southwest China? What did PrithviRaj do when he supported the Shah Dynasty of Afghanistan against invading Turks in 11th century? What did Maharana Bappa Rawal do when he defeated the Arabs in Sindh in 732AD and extended Indian Borders to the gates of Baghdad? What did Raja Maan Singh of Amer do when he extended the Mongol empire right upto Tajikistan? What did Maharaja Ranjit singh do when he occupied parts of Afghanistan and finally who was Zorawar Singh who led an expedition to capture Tibet? Does these acts confirm to the oft repeated shit that we as Indians have never invaded any country in last 10K yers of our history?
For far too long we Hindus have been taught a wrong history. It is time we realised who we are. And rise upto be the sons of our great forefathers.

Sir ji , all this is fine

But today we cannot even act in a Pre Emptive manner against Pakistan
We know that over a Period of Time
Taliban will gather in POK and then there would be Suicide Attacks on our troops along LOC

Taliban are Expendables for Pakistan

So.why cannot we strike Pak.army installations and make them useless

We are waiting to be attacked

How funny? In 1971 war, which is the most recent case in which we invaded a country after 1965 war as a counter, you want to tell me that a nuke powered India is afraid of a third rate Pakistan? When did Chinese ever come in support of Pakistan in last three wars with them? Last being Kargil War.
And is the Indian RM a fool to make a statement that we are ready to fight wars on others territories to save our nation? Think from the the right end of your body.

Yes. The MRSAM already does this. But for the entire air force, it will take time. We need MRSAM to come in first, followed by the XRSAM, and the BMD also needs to be fully established. Then we also need to integrate it with our new AWACS.

What does this mean. 2way data link?

2. My another question is can air force jet directly connect to IACCS node or it need ATC acting as a relay.

What are advantages of using spread spectrum in UAV why don't we use SDR and can rustom drone connect directly with other air force assets and can provide them firing solution. @randomradio

Our AMCA will be delayed and China is building up its J 20 fleet

We might buy 2 squadrons of Su 57 or that New Single engined Fifth Gen , the Russians are making
Who knows we might buy every kind of aircraft ever produced by any and every country, including latest blocks of advanced Fck1/JF17 etc. who knows

Spread spectrum is an ECCM capability. It protects your radar, comm etc from being jammed by rapidly changing the carrier frequency so the message is spread out across a large bandwidth. It's a basic requirement for anything to do with the military.

To generate a firing solution, you need a fire control radar, like S and X band radars. Rustom can't provide a firing solution without carrying a fire control radar, it's not designed for that anyway. However if you want the Rustom to act as a relay between an FCR (say, a fighter jet) and a launcher (say, a ship VLS) for remote engagement, then that can be done. It's called CEC, or Cooperative Engagement Capability.


Both the IAF and IN now have all the hardware necessary to have a force-wide CEC. If it's not been already done, then in a few years we should see our fighter jets/AWACS fully integrated with our SAMs, starting with the MRSAM. I'm actually hoping the S-400 comes integrated with the MKI right from the beginning, or it would defeat one of the purposes of buying it in the first place.
