  2. Hi Col Ajay,

    The panels in the photograph are collar members of an attachment system for assembly of aircraft and similar large scale mechanical assemblies. Collars are fed sideways along a tube having a rectangular internal cross-section to a collar pathway defined by a clamp fork and swaging ram combination. The collar pathway is curved to present the collar to a receiving element mounted on a swaging die in a proper orientation relative to an attachment bolt which is moved through an opening in the workpiece and then through the collar. As the bolt is moved into the collar, the collar, receiving element and swaging die move together laterally to come into alignment with the bolt.

    Did it make any sense to you?

    The puzzle is not easy as there is no clue. Your readers will find it difficult to even guess. It can be anything under the sun. Take it this way. Tell me why, they can not be “Ceramic insulated Bolt on Panels (BoP) for a Mach3 aircraft under development”? Are you puzzled? Well that was the aim.

  4. Nice teaser :-)
    Removed skin from ALH Dhruv - Army camouflaged, getting painted. The skin is removed from the front right bottom of the air craft-not sure what it covers though. These are some high res pics to give some clues (Black projection in the front right)

  8. the sky blue colored ones are armor panels from bottom of Dhruv.
    and the military colored ones may be around the cockpit door.

  16. You have made this quiz too easy. The camo on the plates is a dead giveaway to even the most novice reader.

    These are armor panels that form the complete body armor of the future Indian soldier.
    2x leg panels
    2x crotch panels, very important
    2x arm panels
    2x chest panels front and back
    2x lower body panels
    1x spine support for really dangerous missions

    Cujo - strikes again !

  21. Plates for Dhruv. The ones in blue are for the belly. Others probably of the cockpit area.

  22. Sir,
    I have a request... can you please only post those pictures which you were able to figure it yourselves inherently.

    Some of your puzzles are indeed great.. however this feels like being in an interview where the guy wants to tell you how much he knows without trying to understand how much you know...

    ne ways

  23. Very well said Anonymous 01:25.
    That is what I would like to convey to Col Ajay too. People reading this blog are not into building fighters. You cant just place few plates and bolts and ask them to name it and then call it a quiz. This is ridiculous!!

  24. THE CORRECT ANSWER IS:

    These are armoured bullet-proof panels that are provided with the Dhruv Mark III helicopters to the army and the IAF.

    These 11 panels, which together weigh about 70 kgs, are bolted onto the bottom and sides of the Dhruv.

    The armoured panels have been developed by DMRL, Hyderabad. They are integrated by Taneja Aerospace.

    NOBODY GETS A GOLD STAR. THE ONE'S WHO PROVIDED DETAILED ANSWERS WERE WIDE OFF THE MARK AND THE ONES WHO PROVIDED THE CORRECT ANSWER PROVIDED NO DETAILS.

    ALL YOU WAILING ANONYMOUS POSTERS WHO FIND THESE QUIZES UNFAIR/RIDICULOUS/LIKE AN INQUISITION.... WELL, HEY! YOU DON'T HAVE TO PARTICIPATE, DO YOU? JUST MOVE TO AN ARTICLE THAT YOU LIKE!

    I'M HOPING THAT THERE IS SOME OF THAT IN BROADSWORD, OVER AND ABOVE THE RIDICULOUS QUIZES...

  25. 11 panels weighing 70Kgs? can we replace them with something light weight made of kevlar,honeycombed panels etc...?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi Ajay,

    Out of curiosity, what caliber of fire can these panels withstand? Are they designed for handled guns or anti aircraft guns?

    Thanks!
