Naa dw india army pr is just some ameture guy with Twitter logged in his phone so he can tweet that's it no dedicated pr team.
An official handle shouldn't be left to a guy who can't differentiate between the RuA and IA, something amateurs like us can spot in 2 seconds.

And those 2 clips of agniveers warrant some official explanation, granted there were only 2 clips.

INDIAN ARMY TO ORDER 500 HELINA 'TANK-BUSTER' MISSILES
The Indian Army is planning to acquire more than 500 helicopter-launched Nag (HELINA) anti-tank missiles for Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL)-manufactured Rudra and LCH Prachand attack helicopters, reported TOI


According to the report, the army is in the process of integrating HELINA missiles on the weaponised variant of the advanced light helicopter (ALH) Rudra.

Once the integration is complete, production will commence. The integration of this eight-kilometre range missile is expected to begin next year.

Earlier, in August, HELINA and its air force variant, Dhruvastra, successfully completed all the trials.

Both missiles are guided by an advanced imaging infra-red seeker, operating in both the 'lock-on before launch' and 'lock-on-after-launch' modes, making them some of the world's most advanced anti-tank weapons.

They are capable of defeating armoured targets, including tanks, at ranges of 7-8 kilometres.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation, in 2022, conducted successful flight tests at Pokhran weapon testing range, as part of user validation trials.

Both the missiles were also tested from a high altitude range in eastern Ladakh, where the missile successfully demonstrated its capability to destroy simulated tank targets.

The HELINA and Dhruvastra missiles are helicopter-launched variants of Nag missile, which is a fire-and-forget, third-generation ATGM, with an operational range of up to 4 km, equipped with a tandem high-explosive anti-tank warhead.

Ya'll Nibbiars In July 2023, Maharashtra Shasan had pledged to support the Development of Trishul War Museum with an Auditorium. For this, a Sum of 3 crore was provided by Maharashtra Shasan becoming one of the First State to collaborate with the Army for such a project.

Oh star streak the wunderwaffen that was supposed to ground Russian helicopter fleet :pound: :pound:
And it did the only saving grace for russia is that they have possibly the best attack helicopter in ka52 with its long range missiles. Mi28n on the other hand is now unseen in the battle ground

Manpads are overrated, if you study heptor losses in soviet afghan war, most of their Mi24 losses was attributed to chinese supplied HMG. Stinger, blowpipes were overrated.
The same thing it seems to repeating in ukraine, neither Stinger, Starstreak nor RBS-70 have been the touted wunderwaffen.

Once the Russian pilots changed their flying habits and tactics to reflect the new reality of manpads the effect of manpads became less effective. For starters they used spotters to detect any manpads and I think they do a presscreening of the flight path before they do it and they use more ECMs.
