  5. Jesus ... you are looking damn fit and cool next to that plane. You are for sure creating a vaccum in everyones mind to give a thought to other options that our MOD had either neglected or not publicly publicised...... I appreciate your work...

    Hope to see the Arjun report soon...Thanks

  19. So, you are saying you were really busy having a new suit made, hence no time to blog?

    cujo

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's right, Cujo, I was getting that suit stitched. Good tailors don't work fast.

    And good journalists don't write articles too quickly either.

    By the way, nobody's correctly identified that aircraft behind me... So here's a question: what aircraft is that and what makes it so?

  21. @ Gourish

    "Swedes just refuse to give up"?

    Just tell me, which of the MMRCA contenders has actually, really and truly given up?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Or could be just the NG trainer!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah the rear wheels show it's one of the NG it looks more like the Gripen NG tandem seat operational trainer.

    ReplyDelete
  24. its JAS-39B trainer aircraft!!!

  26. 1. Gripen E/F?
    2. Or is it the legendary Sea Gripen mock up / prototype?

    ReplyDelete
  27. It definitely looks like a two seater gripen, just not sure if its NG or D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is this the Hawk AJT?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Broadsword @ 18.17, I think that's the Gripen Demo.

    ReplyDelete
  30. its some jet trainer may be modified hawk ...

    ReplyDelete
  31. hawk ijt

    Wisc dude

    ReplyDelete
  32. Headed for the Dubai airshow?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Col....MiG35, Russians have given up and they have also started cold shouldering India by excluding India from SCO, canceled naval exercise, appeasing Pakistan and favoring Chinese investment in Oil & Gas prospecting. I think F-35 pitch is at right time nor for MMRCA replacement but as a T-50 replacement.

  34. Hey you are looking so young that I am getting a complex.

  35. Shuklaji AAPNE Brahman Jaati ki
    NAAK kata di

    AAP BAAR BAAR F 35 ki ADVOCACY matlab
    WAKALAT karte rehte hain

    ISSE AISA IMPRESSION PAD RAHA HAI KI
    Brahman BEWAQOOF Hote hain
    AUR Brahmanon ko WEAPONS KE BAARE
    mein kuch nahi samajhta.

    BHAGWAN AAPKO ACCHI BUDDHI de

  36. Is that not Gripen NG?

    - DK

  37. @broadsword

    what you're standing with is the gripen ng.

    what makes it distinguishable is that the cockpit canopy doesn't merge seamlessly into the spine at the back

  38. IT is Prototype Gripen NG..

    as it is a Twin seater.

  39. come on now this was easy, we can see the logo on the tail. Definitely a Gripen I will go with the NG model.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Judging from the nosewheel behind you that's a Sea Gripen. Looks catapult friendly! Hard to discern an arrestor hook at the back but I would expect to see one located there.

    ReplyDelete
  41. True that..
    With MoD's idiotic procurement policies, a single anon letter,a newsreport pertaining to corruption in the downselect of MMRCA in an already charged atmosphere with a government reeling under enormous taint of corruption everybody stands a chance..hell even the american teens stand a chance..I stand corrected..

    ReplyDelete
  42. this is the Gripen NG and this aircraft went to the RIAT, the tattoo can be seen. also the sea gripen is based on this aircraft

    ReplyDelete
  43. Col Shukla,

    Micke Bra (very good) as the Swedes say :). If you happen to be in Stockholm on Saturday, do check out the Jazz/Blues bar Stampen in Gamlastan, if that is you havent already :-).

  44. SIRJIIII PLEASE WE HUNGER FOR ARJUN REPORT!

    ReplyDelete
  45. this is a known problem.... It is not just about Arjun...I am still awaiting a report on operation Geronimo!!!! A long time ago our proud repoter had proclaimed that he will teach us as to how Osama was killed

    LOL where is that report....

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Ajai,
    When is the Arjun Mk2 report coming!!! We have been eagerly waiting for it. Its fine that you are covering other defense stories too. But it would be great if we can find more about Arjun!!!

    ...Raj
