prasunis this system going to form the bedrock of pakistan's Air Defense Network?Can u post abt simiar systems tht r in use in IAF?
I just hope that this time you will post some thing about the ideas-2008 report that you promisedDelivery of SH-1Status of BVRAAM testing on jf-174000km shaheen-III statusSLCM status
Some thing about the number of different APCs like Al-Talha APCMohafiz APC Turkish Otokar CobraGerman APC (recently ordered)M113 APCAl-Hamza - Armoured infantry fighting vehicle Raad APC shown @ ideas 2008
France, Germany vie to sell Pakistan subshttp://www.upi.com/Emerging_Threats/2009/07/20/France-Germany-vie-to-sell-Pakistan-subs/UPI-32061248126711/Pakistan is also interested in acquiring further German-made tanks ?????and armored vehicles. prasun is it true that Pakistan is interested in buying German tanks
Prasun sir please update us about the status and numbers of 1)Al-Khalid MBT 2)Al-Zarrar MBT 3)Al-Talha APC4)Mohafiz APC Turkish Otokar Cobra5)German APC (recently ordered)6)M113 APC7)Al-Hamza - Armoured infantry fighting vehicle 8)Raad APC shown @ ideas 20089)Al-Hadeed armoured repair/recovery vehicle (ARRV) 10)Al-Qaswa armoured logistics vehicle 11)Sakb armoured command post vehicle
12)PA's Cobra APC from Turkish Otokar company13)Eurocopter AS-550 Light Transport Helicopter and their armed version
Pakistans interest in German tanks (read Leo2) is a knee jerk response to India's acquisition of Arjun MBT. So much for the bravado of Al-Khalid MBT. That settles the debate on Arjun's capability.
Pakis interested in the leo 2?? What happened to the I-can-do-it-all MBT 2000/ A-khalid??
anon @ 6:11That article was fun to read... U214 (mentioned in that article) is a very old model (dates back to WW2)
To Sachin Sathe: Yes, this is the RABTA system which is being progressively installed throughout Pakistan. This same system was also exported to Bangladesh in 2006. As for the IAF, there's no such singular C4i system in place as yet. There are diverse C4I systems specific to each type of airspace surveillance radar that come together as a package. The ACCCS network now being implemented by the IAF aims to network all such diverse systems, as well as the civilian ATC radars. To Anon@6.03AM: Deliveries of SH-1s will begin this October, while the JF-17 will first be qualified with air-to-ground weapons. BVRAAMs will follow later. I'm not aware of the existence of any missile going by the name of Shaheen-3. The C-602 SLCMs were acquired last December and they are ship-launched and shore-launched, not sub-launched. To Anon@6.08AM: I'm not aware of the confirmed production orders for the vehicles you've mentioned.To Anon@ 8:27AM: The Pakistan Army has already selected the Ukrainian T-84 MBT for procurement, about 450 of them. Regarding the Al Khalid MBT, only 450 have been procured thus far.
Thanks Prasun K Sengupta sirwhat about PA's Cobra APC purchased from Turkish Otokar company and German APC that is recently ordered
Thanks Prasun K Sengupta sirlastEurocopter AS-550 Light Transport Helicopter and their armed version
The Cobra 4 x 4s were purchased in 2003. I don't think the APC deal was consumated.
There are some 16 AS.550B3s on order, of which six have already been delivered and are armed with 20mm gun pods made by Nexter Systems. The Pakistan Navy too operates this helicopter as they've replaced the SA.316B Alouette IIIs.
thanks sirFrench are talking about the defense deal later this year during the French president‘s visit to PakistanDo you happen to know any cotenants of that defense package deal
The Eurocopter Tigre's armed recce variant is on offer for sure as replacements for existing AH-1F/S HueyCobras.
fairly primitive 1st gen stuff.
And India is still behind
To Anon@JULY 25, 2009 9:56:00 AMYour knowledge of subs dates back to WW2.This is U214:http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/type_212/
"It is little optimistic only for one reasons because it the first of its class. In the first of the class there are a large number of checks to be carried out. It could take much longer time frame than the two years being projected (for INS Arihant)," said Vice Admiral A K Singh(retd) former Captain of INS Chakra, the Charlie-class nuclear submarine.i tot it's nothing to do with navy and its only tech demo?
>>And India is still behindSaturday, July 25, 2009 11:40:00 PM----------Anon@ 11:40 - no India is not behind, in fact what the Pakistanis are now showing as something great, drdo, TPCL, and ECIL completed in mid-80's itself as part of ADHS..they are showing basic radar tracking and netting solutions, india has more compact and advanced solutions deployed already for several years as part of BADGES the pakistanis are very very much behind indiain fact nothing like IACCS or ODl mentioned at all
Prasun, why such stony silence on the launch of ATV. Dont you have anything to disclose anymore?
all your predictions about the ATV went up in smoke. It is not a technology demonstrator and there are going to be many more ships in her class and the ATV has indeed been christened INS Arihant and will be commissioned into the navy after trials.seems you were badly informed.
To Anon@1:45AM: What more is there to reveal? Describing a 6,000-tonne submersible as a SSBN is a joke, to say the least. To Anon@4:34AM: My predictions? Did I predict that the vessel will be called INS Arihant? Do first take the trouble to find out from PIB and all other official pronouncements about the ceremoney, what exactly the vessel was christened as. They all say only 'Arihant'. There's no 'INS' prefix attached. Now what does that tell anyone? To me it means the vessel is still very much a technology demonstrator vessel and in no way is meant to enter operational service as of now.
Dear Prasun, Thanks for putting up this info. AERO is the new "marketing" side of AWC (Air Weapons Complex). The PAF C4I is being upgraded in house (by Vision system, part of Shaheen foundation) - there are lot of details about it in the new official book. PAF has also sold this system to Bangladesh and has been marketing it to Malaysians as well, though don't know if they have ordered it.
To Anon@6:14AM: The Royal Malaysian Air Force's existing C4I system is from Alenia-Marconi, now part of the Finmeccanica Group.
Prasun:I assume you heard the news about a successful test of an improved version of the Barak. Could you explain what this upgrading actually entails?
To Nava: I haven't come across any such news on an improved Barak-1. The IAI website too mentions only a recent test-firing of an Improved Arrow BMD interceptor.
hello prasunda,my question is regarding RVV-SD and rvv-md missiles to be unveiled at MAKS2009.THE TACTICAL MISSILES CORPORATION's home page mentions the range of RVV-SD to be 110 km and that of RVV-MD to be 40km..what do u think will the RVV-SD BE POWERED By ramjet or will it be an enlarged version of rvv-ae
The RVV-SD will indeed be ramjet-powered, and will externally resemble the MBDA-developed Meteor.
One link off the top of my head: http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1248277894495&pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull
Add an L to the end of that...
To Nava: It depends on what kind of surrogate target missile was used to simulate the hostile anti-ship cruise missile. In all probability the Barak-1 missile would have been the same, but the target/acquisition/target engagement system may have been updated for automatic activation from the standby mode. This was not the case in 2006 and contrary to the JP article, the Barak-1 on board the Hanit was not deactivated, but was on idle mode mode and had to be manually activated into the standby mode. It was this procedural error that led the C-802 to zero in on the Hanit without interception, and as such there was no design/performance deficiency of the Barak-1 on board the Hanit at that time. In the case of India too, the Barak-1 has to date been fired only against Silkworm/Styx-type anti-ship missiles, and not against any high-subsonic sea-skimming anti-ship missile.
