is this really Indian???
as the tank doesnt look like BMP..
Is it a PT-76?
Yep, you got it.
An old picture though. AFAIK, all PT-76s have been retired out of service.
did we have this capacity in those days, so why did nt we land Karachi or Dhaka.....
it looked like BMD-2, ya it could PT-76..
but never expected we have such capability in that old days.....
The picture could be from the 80s. The PT-76s were actually just retired quite recently.
As for landing in Dhaka, it was extensively used in the '71 war. The PT-76s came handy in being able to quickly cross multiple rivers and huge bodies of water in former East Pakistan.
Is this BMP1!!!
PT-76 are retired in Mid and late 90s, There was no need to land in Dhaka as the whole Bangladesh is full of rivers, PT-76 was the MBT in Bangladesh War..
Amphibious Brigade use lots of BMP-1 / 2 ..
Looks like BMD-3(Ð‘Ð¾ÐµÐ²Ð°Ñ ÐœÐ°ÑˆÐ¸Ð½Ð° Ð”ÐµÑÐ°Ð½Ñ‚Ð°)?
It says: Airborne infantry fighting vehicle
The chassis is different, BMD have 5 wheel and BMP have six, BMD have no rear door unlike BMP but its door for passenger is on roof..
I remember a discussion thread where we were talking abouta possble Falklands like situation for India regarding An-N islands and some members thought it was not relevant. However now we see that the Navy chief is talking about similar situation as Kargill in the islands. Interesting.
What about Juan Carlos I class amphibious assault ship, it's ready for STOVL operations too.
As per wiki the price is â‚¬360 million. (but not sure, in which year)
1 Euro = 1.23870 US$. XE: (EUR/USD) Euro to US Dollar Rate
Juan Carlos I Landing Helicopter Dock - Naval Technology
The Australians are buying 2X Juan Carlos at $3 billion. $1.5 billion AUS per comes nowhere close to Mistral.
The basics so far are that Indian amphibious forces will primarily defensive in nature aimed at defence of Indian Island territories. They are not expeditionary forces like Australia is contemplating, to launch and occupy someone else territory in a nation which has a beach.
India is not in a colonising mood which other countries have been for centuries together. Hence Indian amphibious force structure would be primarily defensive.
India does not covet any one's territory. Juan Carlos I class amphibious assault ship will therefore will not be utilised properly.
Juan Carlos could only be used "properly" if your nation is getting F-35B.
Sir, India has no ambitions to capture any ones territory including that of Pakistan.....
It is total 5.
It looks like a fighter aircraft deal, if the flyaway cost is $50 million then the contract cost of it will go upto nearly $ 70-75 million each aircraft.
btw what was Russian total contract, awarded at what price?
Total deal for Australia- Spain is for $11 B.
$11 B for Amphibious ships+ F-100 frigates+ much more (not announced yet, I think subs are their too, may be support in Australian project).
It is total of 2
Canberra class landing helicopter dock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The deal with Spain's Navantia has nothing to do with cost of Lockheed F-35 deal.
Russia signed a contract Friday worth more than $1 billion to buy two French warships

Has nothing to do with nothing... $3.17 billion was the price of two ships.
Which one you are talking about?
What are the difference in-between this two ships as far as the use of it?
Can I say like...... Spanish ship is good for covet any one's territory and French ship is good for defensive only.
