    The JF17 is a modular design allowing for the integration of equipment from different contractors. The PAF selected the ASELPOD as the targeting pod for all Pakistani JF17's back in 2015...

    Calm down "internet warriors". You do know that even twin-seaters have one pilot in control at any one time, right? Aslam Imran was credited with the flight, even though there was another officer on-board.

    Your biggest problem is trying to ridicule JF17 for not being a Jaguar or a Mig 29. Different designs different capabilities. JF17 is a light multi role combat jet. It is obviously not going to haul the same amount of ordinance to the same ranges that a twin engine medium weight Mig 29 can or a...

    The flight profile, flight time and payload are right there for anyone with the eyes to see them. 1800km flying a high high high flight profile for a 3.5 hr flight time carrying two 1100 litter tanks, a single 800 litter centerline tank, 2 MRAAMs and 2 SRAAMs. Or an air-to-ground payload of 4 x...

    Barak 8 claims aside, everything in your post is true. It would be hard for any opposing forces to assault a CBG wih ASM carrying jets alone considering the carrier's CAP fighters. What I dispute is this: Barak 8 CANNOT INTERCEPT A PLATFORM LAUNCHING ANTI-SHIP MISSILES FROM 200+km OUT. IT DOES...

    Fanboys are exhausting to converse with. Corrections. Most of Brahmos's flight path like the Yakhont its derived from is a HIGH ALTITUDE CRUISE PHASE that can go as high as 15 000m. http://www.claws.in/images/journals_doc/SW-Autumn2010.135-138.pdf Any 100+km LR ADM system will have multiple...

    N8 Regulus was a turbo-jet powered cruise missile. Germany's AS34 was a rocket powered cruise missile with a 35km range. Neither of these followed a ballistic trajectory chief. AGAIN CM400AKG is NOT A CRUISE MISSILE. It follows a ballistic flight path from launch to impact which is why it has a...

    Again, your media consistently trips over itself with simple designations. http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/navy-successfully-test-fires-barak-8-long-range-missile-from-ins-kolkata/ Barak 8ER IS NOT OPERATIONAL neither is its army counterpart LRSAM. And even if it was...

    Calm down and read what I wrote Chief. I am disputing @nongaddarliberal 's claim that Barak 8 can shoot down any aerial platform launching from 200+km away. Or that land-based S400's can protect a carrier at sea from ASM carrying jets. Both are simply unrealistic at best and just impossibilities.

    Carrier killer what? the term "Carrier killer" is tabloid spin, not an actual designation. Please elaborate on which actual "French, American, British" missiles you''re talking about.

    You're tripping over your own designations. Barak 8 installed on D63, D64 and D65 are all 70km range SAMs. From your own source: LRSAM/Barak 8-ER is NOT in service with the IN. People here tend to confuse future improvements with facts on the ground(or the sea in this case).

    So the S400 is going to shoot down Pakistani anti-ship strike formations from the coast? Why would they expose themselves to land-based surface to air fire if they are attacking naval formations out to sea? You're making very little sense mate.

    The CM-400AKG is not an anti-ship missile. It's an air-launched variant of the SY-400 short range ballistic missile system. It was never designed to have a "depressed trajectory" nor is it an air-breathing missile. Its ballistic all the way. The people crying "Chinese propaganda" here are...

    Aside from the silly addendum, nice post. If "propaganda propagation" is pointing out the simple math that a 70km Barak 8 CANNOT intercept the launching platform at 200+km away , then yes. Indians fanboys have this habit of mixing nationalism with facts. Yes, a single or multiple Barak 8 at...

    How exactly is a 70km missile going to intercept an aerial platform launching from 200+ km away? The best such a medium range SAM could do is try intercept the CM-400AKG no? Or does the IN have plans to integrate S400 onto its Air Defense ships?

    Whatever you say mate. I've seen enough of your posts not to expect integrity from you. I posted that article, why would crashes make me uncomfortable? The same article that quotes the PLAAF describing a Y8 crash that killed 12 people whose names are then listed. There is no mention of any H6...
