Dear Mr. Shiv
Thank you for posting this and the awesome pics. I hope all the media extensively covers this event and I am looking forward to a special coverage from you on HT.

The an 32 picture is certainly not a fake. The modifications can be identified visually. Transport aircrafts can be used for carpet bombings if not precision target hitting. Mi 8s and even dornier 228 can be armed.

The IAF has previously trained to use An-12 transports in a bomber role.It there in an article on BR.
It can easily be done I think.The only thing is ,it requires a total suppression or absence of conventional air-defenses and total air superiority.Would be more suitable in a CI type situation.

Never,within our borders i hope.

@Anon 9:14PM, An-32s have been used my many countries as a platform for dropping large amount of ordinance in certain missions. Most likely such a role would be to destroy/damage a larger target such as a port or airfield.

But yes historically transport aircraft can be converted to bombing role.

Are they borrowing a few night-blind tanks from the army for target practice?

Talking of d iaf it baffles me that they do not have a single heavy bomber aircraft.nor r there any plans to acquire 1. How r we to deliver heavy payloads like cruise missiles?believe me lack of heavy bombers will prove to be a serious handicap
