PN is more like floating pigs, good enough to be sunk by coast guard vessels. No need to use Akula.

PN is more like floating Pigs. Good enough to be sunk by Coast Guard vessels. No need to use our Akula or Stealth Frigates.

PN isn't stupid enough to risk a 400 million dollar agosta on
^ Anon,
Sahyadri keep in mind Barak can easily shoot down harpoons' and RBUs can deal with incoming torpedoes. Even if Sahyadri get hits it can still (during Falklands british T-42 remained afloat even after multiple exocet hits) stay afloat but single torpedo can doom a submarine. More likely PN's SSKs will used to target the shipping lanes not suicidal attacks on a frigate.

Im guessin if its a marine cuz the assault rifle the guy s holding is either a f2000 which cnnt be a stndard issue for a marine ... or it might be a tar21 optimized for seawarfare ... the pics nt in good shape to identify

coldbloodedviper said...

The assault rifle hes holding isnt standard issue marine arms although special marine units may have this sort of an assault rifle but usually its the M4A1-S(system variant) but the rifle in the pic can be a f2000 or a sea warfare or spec ops variant of the tar21 .... but if that guy is indian .... THIS IS REALLY AWESOMENESSSSSSSSS AND THE CAMOS ILL :)

The marine in the third pic is looking as a modern marine. Is this part of the F-INSAS?

su market said...

PN subs? PN subs will be toasted by P-8I's long before they even leave port.LOL !! PN that is scared and shits in the pants when IN fleet moves out. That cowers and hides in Karachi port when IN is bombing them.
PN will last approx 2 hrs before IN sends them to the bottom of the sea.

Shiv,

A new report suggests that LCA wont be ready before 2015. Some days back you had flagged similar concerns when DRDO head commented that LCA will be inducted by year end. Could you raise the same issue again based on this report. Sorry for being OT.

Anon@7:20 PM, Yes indeed. PN Ghazi is craving for some company as it rests at the bottom of the Bay of Bengal.

Never underestimate your enemy, PN can shut down all the shipping lanes in Hormuz. Do you know what happened to INS Kukhri.

That gun in the commando's hands look more potent than the ship.

He is not a marine, this was taken on board INS Sahyadri, on its commissioning by Def min Antony. the soldier is a MARCOS commando,in their new gear. they were handling security for the funtion.
