This guy is amazing. He has written 2 books. Chimera and Phinix on Indo -Pak and Indo-China War. He had simulated F 16 Vs Tejas and Z10 Vs LCH in his study published under title Beta Coefficient.
Nope. Chimera and Phoenix are written by someone else and that same person did the simulation of F-16 vs Tejas vs LCH. Vivek Ahuja.

Very useful slides containing gems of info.

Very nice presentation. Cool to see that Shaurya and Sagarika's quasi-ballistic" 750km range trajectory again. I'd imagine Pralay is the same? Or do they drop booster before and are not powered all through the trajectory?
But the most weird part is slide 11:- It says "Stabilized deterrence against N3: China, Russia, USA"
Deterrence against USA? And in the presentation he mentions counter-value targets, not counter-force targets, meaning missile ranges that should target US mainland. Is this policy or just boffin-speak?

Counter value means larger warheads too! Interesting development.

Probably from SLBM pov down the line against N3....
So the best interception is in boost phase and aegis is the only one that can in theory that has the distribution and reach to intercept these while its still in ballistic stage....no wonder Russian's see it as a serious threat in Romania and Poland for anything going west.

No, on the contrast, the West reduce the QUANTITY of arsenal, but the improvement of QUALITY bring the threat of nuclear weapon to a whole new level. For example, before 1980s, US need 3 warheads for every Soviet Silo, but since CEP was narrowed less than 100m, they only need 2.
In the same time the yield of our nuc was drastically reduced.
on our missiles we currantly used 1 megaton warhead, and now it is more 120 to 150kt max.
France stockpile of nearly 300 : not the same to have 300 x 1 Mt or 300 x 150Kt.

More importantly, with the technological progress, the conventional weapon can produce the damage as same as nuclear weapons in some circumstances.
? Big doubt.
Even in IEM a classical warhead is far from being as potent.

Yield of GBU-43/B MOAB is 11 ton . Russian foab 44 tons . yield of tactical nuclear weapons can range from under one kiloton to about 100 kiloton . strategic nuclear weapons can have a yield up to one thousand kilotons.
