Hi Shiv,

Are the Jags in the pics the maritime jags from Sqn #6 (Sea Dragons)?

If yes, isn't it a bit wierd to have them in the middle of a desert far away from the sea?

"Shiv you should not have posted this. This is a major nuclear missile base."

Sorry for that Shiv, it is not this base after all.

Good to see the first pics of the Phalodi AFS inauguration.

That said, I am amazed mixed with annoyance to see that the inaugural plaque is etched in English only! It is utterly shameful of the IAF to leave out the Hindi and the Devnaagri script altogether.

If the birds have a Indian name not to mention the missiles, boats, Navy bases etc. why this half hearted effort?

Hi Shiv,

I know its OT, but it was ironical to see you discuss "To Marry or Not to Marry" for the hyderabadi drama on HT yestrerday when we were shell shocked for the 75 lives…was expecting you to cover the story…professional constraints i suppose

Those are the post-DARIN upgrade jags – thus the different nose. Not to be confused with the IM jags.

Well whats the good use! The armed forces are on a buying spree for spectacular weapon systems while security men get butchered daily by Naxalites. With corrupt, Lilly-livered politicians running successive weak spine-less governments, only things we can expect to see in the future are more such humiliations and worthless loss of lives. When are we going to make a statement? The only wars won by the Republic of India were those against Pakistanis, who are weaker, more corrupt and a failed state.Against a real country with its own convictions like China, what could happen can easily be found out… Read more »

Why cant the Indian government risr a Auxiliary Air Force to deal with the internal threats & to support the paramilitary forces?

There seems to be a provision for that

Why are most IAF officers fat? Do they store extra 'fuel' as reserve in case they need energy in future?

How can these senior officers live with their own hypocrisy? They are always giving lecture to juniors on maintaining standards, yet they never look in the mirrors themselves. Shameful.

Buying new fighters,aren't we? But guess what, we don't even have a Basic Trainer, never-to-be-realized HAL IJT and a flawed AJT. Our vintage radars are no good in modern scenario, we do not have a tactical bomber and 🙂 our arms-depots keep catching fire! Guys we have a circus party to protect our borders! This is certainly not to question the abilities and professionalism of most our men in uniform but just to regret the amount of stagnation that has crept into every level.And then, God help us because we have HAL and DRDO. Unlike ISRO, these two are our… Read more »

Ha ha, the Couch-potato Air Chief said that the Air Force will not be used to fight the Naxals. Why? Because that will reveal the weaknesses of our forces and underscore their inability to carry out precise ground-strikes, limited availability of guided munitions and inability to gather real-time intelligence!Since when the Air Chief gets to decide whom to fight!!! I thought decisions were taken at a different level! Anyways, Dear Air Chief Sir, compliments to your cook and your dietitian, you can happily munch your ration, since IAF has never been called to do anything that has had an impact… Read more »

As much as I hate to admit, I have to agree 100% driksolo. He is absolutely right. The IAF is one of the most useless, corrupt, inefficient, unproductive and unprofessional organization of the tri-services. It’s not just their fitness level of the IAF Chiefs that’s an issue. I have a feeling, I fear that more the half of the IAF fleet (combat and logistical support) and ammunition is unreliable or unusable let alone be sufficiently modernized to take on a tough enemy. Given the pathetic state of the IAF for well over a decade, it is downright shameful to see… Read more »
