    Respectfully differ, as the Israeli experience with Merkava shows a positive outcome from a limited market. When Britain refused to sell MBTs to Israel it forced Israel to design its own MBT, with local needs paramount. We know this became a success story.

    Russian defense enterprises exhibition Defexpo India is a priority, since the Russian-Indian cooperation in military-technical area has more than four decades and forms the basis of strategic partnership between Moscow and New Delhi. Russia takes part in the exhibition Defexpo India on a regular basis, and this time presents the latest T-90MS. This is a landmark event, since for 15 years, Russia has not exported to overseas exhibitions heavy armor.

    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]BALASORE: After many postponements, the DRDO finally test-fired the most sophisticated submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), code named K-15. The weapon system was reportedly tested from an underwater launching platform off� Visakhapatnam coast on Sunday.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    This is the only thing the article gets right.

    Risat-1 to be launched using PSLV-XL in April.

    Chennai: A wholly Indian-built spy-surveillance satellite - the Radar Imaging Satellite or Risat-1- that can see through clouds and fog and has very high- resolution imaging is slated for launch in April, a senior official of the Indian space agency has said.

    An official of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said thorough tests were being done on the Risat-1. "The Risat-1 is put to thermal vacuum test (a test to check the satellite's functioning in space environment). It is a complex microwave satellite being built for the first time in India. The satellite is expected to be launched in April," the senior official told IANS, not wishing to be named because of the organisational rules.


    In earlier satellites, one major component, the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) was imported, but in Risat-1 that has also been developed in India.


    He said Risat-1 is the first such satellite being built by India and is a bit complex compared to other remote sensing/earth observation satellites built and sent up earlier.


    According to ISRO officials, Risat-1 at 1,850 kg is the heaviest microwave satellite to be built by India.


    The satellite would be used for disaster prediction and agriculture forestry, and the high resolution pictures and microwave imaging could also be used for defence purposes.


    Risat-1 will have all weather, day and night imaging capability.


    The satellite's synthetic aperture radar can acquire data at C-band.

    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]5,000 Pinaka rockets to be produced every year

    [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [FONT=Arial][*******#000000]Nagpur: The Ordnance Factory Ambajhari (OFAJ) near here is all set to enhance its manufacturing capacity of Pinaka rockets from the present 1,000 rockets to 5,000 every year for the Indian Army, sources said. [/COLOR][*******#000000][/COLOR]
    [/FONT]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]
    "Pinaka rocket is one of the major projects (of the OFAJ). The multiple rocket launcher has successfully been indigenised and production of Pinaka rocket is in association with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO)," official sources said.

    "Pinaka rocket is operable at extreme conditions of temperature ranging from -10 degree centigrade to 55 degree centigrade. These rockets, with a payload of 100 kgs, have a striking range of 40 kms and can bring devastation around 500 kms of surrounding areas of the target. It has already been tested and inducted into the ****nal of the Indian Army. It is a mammoth project of the Ambajhari Ordnance Factory," they said.

    Very soon, construction work would commence for the extension project of Pinaka. Each Pinaka battery consists of six launcher vehicles, each with 12 rockets, six loader-*** replenishment vehicles, two command post vehicles with a fire control computer and radar.

    According to sources, AN-32 Platform system is another important milestone in the history of OFAJ and the first batch of OFAJ's indigenously produced AN-32 Platform was handed over to the Indian Army in July last year.

    AN-32 Platform system is an Aerial Delivery System to para drop vehicles from height of 500 to 700 metres, with the help of parachutes. The platforms loaded with vehicle are carried on hydraulic trolley to airbase and the same is put inside an AN-32 aircraft with the help of a hydraulic trolley and manual push, sources said.
    http://zeenews.india.com/news/nation...ar_764931.html


    The platforms, along with parachutes, are dropped from aircraft at the desired locations. The platform loaded with vehicles gets stabilised and lands on ground with the help of parachutes.

    The AN-32 Platform heavy drop system was designed and developed by Aerial Delivery Research and Development Establishment (ADRDE). It is a substitute to Russian AN-32 Platform system. OFAJ has indigenously developed this item in collaboration with ADRDE Agra.

    Another vital project of the OFAJ is 105 mm shells HEER, which has a projectile mass of 16 kgs and is of 593 m length. HEER has a range of 20.4 Km with super charge, they added.

    The OFAJ, established in 1966, is a premier factory in the family of 41 ordnance factories. It is engaged in manufacturing and supply of ammunition hardware parts, shells, fuses, rockets, cartridge cases, assault bridges and high strength aluminium alloys, they said.

    The 41 defence production units and factories under the Defence Ministry are engaged in the production of weapon systems, armoured personnel carrier, tanks and ammunitions and equipments required by the Indian Armed Forces and Para Military Forces in the country.

    [FONT=comic sans ms][*******#0000ff][SIZE=7][SIZE=4][/SIZE][/SIZE]Field trials of upgraded Bofors g​un in Jan 2013 [/COLOR][/FONT]

    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Kolkata: An upgraded version of the 155mm Bofors gun, the Indian Army's most potent artillery weapon, will be ready for field trials in January 2013, a top official of the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) said on Tuesday.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]"We are working on this upgraded version. This has been tried out in PXE (Proof and Experimental Establishment), Balasore," OFB chairperson Sashi Dhar Dimri said on the sidelines of its 210th anniversary here.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]OFB is upgrading the gun from its original 39-calibre to 45-calibre with mechanical and electronic suites.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial][/FONT][/COLOR]
    [RIGHT][*******#535353][FONT=Arial][/FONT][/COLOR][/RIGHT]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Extensive firing has been carried out at PXE Balasore as part of the upgrade process.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]"We are confident that in the beginning of 2013, our GCF (Gun Carriage Factory, Jabalpur) will be in a position to field the gun for trials," Dimri said.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Arial]While one gun has been upgraded with the electronic suite incorporating ballistic computers, servo valves and communication systems to provide automation, the second gun has been upgraded by fitting a new 45 calibre barrel, enabling it to achieve a range of 40 km.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    Have India ever declared any interest in turning their FH77's into Archers like Sweden did?
