Yes...its the best that can be done. Like here, any sustained discussion of substance gets banned for wrongthink depending on the side. One echochamber mob just becomes bigger than another.

Also please ignore what I told you earlier about "staying above the fray" etc on pride rock etc...if the powers that be have a "feel"....3 points given your way regardless on wutevs.

I can understand your frustration.

Indian Army may introduce LRBM Laser beam riding MANPAD

According to a recent report in Hindu, the Indian Army is focussing on laser beam-riding MANPADS & has already initiated the procurement process.


BDL with ToT from French THALES has developed a Laser Beam Riding MANPAD which is based on the Starstreak system.


DRDO is also developing indigenous VSHORADS MANPAD which is based on IIR guidance.

It targets the heat signature of aircraft and is a fire & forget system.

Laser Beam Riding systems need to be guided throughout their path by the operator, but are less prone to be deceived by Countermeasures.

ASW (Anti-submarine warfare) corvette INS Kavaratti was recently in Indonesia to participate in the bilateral exercise Samudra Shakti-23.

The exercise put into play the superior stealth quality of the ASW which arises from the Saab supplied superstructure of carbon fibre composite material.

The fibre shields against a wide range of signals such as electromagnetic, IR, pressure, acoustic, radar and heat.
