some interesting facts&logic from ukraine war



--> whats our production rate for drones ?
Average life expectancy of fixed-wing drone was six flights; that of a quadcopter a paltry three.

Electronic warfare played (and is playing) a big role. But "fratricide is a systemic issue between Russian systems,


--> need masssive stockpile for ammo / shells
At peak in Donbas Russia using "more ammunition in two days than entire British military has in stock". At Ukr rates of use UK stocks would "potentially last a week."

-----> nooo tent cities , something china is doing at LAC , we dont .
"The historical approach of the [ARRC] and 3 UK Division of erecting tented cities – command posts with a large physical footprint – is non-viable in wartime on the modern battlefield. These sites will be identified and struck."


Survival depends on "defeating precision". Three main ways to do it: stop a launcher from determining its own position, preventing enemy from locating you, or interfering with "mechanism for precision strike" (e.g. jamming its navigation signals with EW)


--> *cough* *cough* china
This is where countries with large manufacturing cabailities will succeed. Billion dollar systems vs virtually unlimited, disposable, cheap drone swarms

IA needs to double down on 155mm TGM, 200/year induction won't cut it, must be 10 times more.

sudden increase in publicizing the anti-drone bird is kinda weird
folks here at DFI wanted IA to have it's own PR setup for years, now we got it.
since it is sarkaari, it will continue to look amateurish, so let's not have great expectations on this front.

just a few years ago, garuds were showcasing a "spider legs" LED light that can be bought on the road side as special forces tactical equipment, to a TV channel.

I had no idea this was IA PR lol. I was just weirded out by almost everyone publishing news about an anti-drone bird
