    Live Conflict Ukraine-Russia War

    I do not think that normal investors bought Truth Social stock in the hope of financial gain. Trump enthusiasts bought much of the stock for non-commercial reasons. Similar to Aston Martin in England - a large number of Aston Martin enthusiasts bought the stock when the company was floated on...

    I did not look. What is your objective in publishing such things?

    Breaking News Iran-Israel Tensions

    I read/heard that over 300 missiles/drones were launched against Israel but only 3 got through.

    Breaking News Iran-Israel Tensions

    Sure, it was not just Israel shooting drones down. Israel has a lot of fighters. I wonder how many drones would have got through without the participation of 4 foreign air forces. In any event, if missiles were used to down the drones, the strike was very effective in cost terms. I guess the...

    Breaking News Iran-Israel Tensions

    @Gary I asked a question about state airspace violation, not about Islam.

    Breaking News Iran-Israel Tensions

    Interesting choice of words. Both Israel and Iran are religious states. Only one entity - the Islamic entity - fired so far. As you predicted, the sky was full of missiles and falling debris. No doubt there was damage caused by drones and missiles being shot down en route from Iran to Israel...

    Live Conflict Ukraine-Russia War

    I think you got your timeline wrong. Russia withdrew from Kherson north of the Dnipro and similarly retreated from a great deal of territory in the east of Ukraine summer/autumn 2022.

    Breaking News Iran-Israel Tensions

    Another futile sacrifice in the offing then. Should Iran initiate such a pointless exercise to avenge the attack on the consulate, will that help bolster support for Israel or weaken it? I would say that Israel has lost a great deal of sympathy from the people of western Europe due to its...

    Live Conflict Ukraine-Russia War

    I would be surprised if Russia were not dominating on the ground, given Ukraine's shortage of weapons and ammunition.

    India Indian Jet Engine and Gas Turbine Archive

    I don't think that India will be prepared to pay the price required to develop a modern 110kN engine. I imagine a figure in excess of US$10 billion will be required to include: - cost of training and equipping Indian industrial partner to be able to use technologies transferred - cost of...

    India Indian Jet Engine and Gas Turbine Archive

    Any evidence of dry Kaveri progress? It says in the article results should be forthcoming mid-2024. Also, any word on how the GE F414 deal is progressing? Lastly, the SAFRAN AMCA engine proposition: any signs of progress? I have read a couple of articles recently (probably Indian press) which...

    India HAL Tejas Program

    HAL upped FAL capacity to 8 frames a year around 2016 IIRC. A second line was commissioned 2021, giving FAL capacity of 16 frames a year. Currently 2 frames are scheduled for delivery by end March this year. 8 deliveries are scheduled in 2024/2025 financial year, 16 in 2025/2026 financial year...

    India HAL Tejas Program

    So, you think that getting an airborne platform for Brahmos is not on? I think that HAL needs to find a modest little order from, say, an African country to learn how to stick to a timeline on delivery, how to provide proper spares support. One such order will highlight weaknesses that it needs...

    India HAL Tejas Program

    Three Mk1A sales prospects have surfaced recently... Argentina, which selected used F-16 for its next fighter, appears to have revived its interest in Tejas Mk1A (according to idrw.com). If true - idrw.com reports often prove to be untrue - there is a very outside chance of Argentina ordering...

    TR TF-X KAAN Fighter Jet

    Apart from the engine and ejection seat, what foreign systems were in the prototype that flew? If there were some, when will they be replaced by Turkish systems?

    Are deliveries of Tejas Mk1A going to start in March?

    TR TF-X KAAN Fighter Jet

    Yes, Tempest can be expected to be very expensive. The GCAP programme is in definition phase. In 2025 the partners are scheduled to decide on whether or not to proceed to development. I am not sure if KSA will want to trade another Typhoon order for some sort of involvement in the GCAP program.

    TR TF-X KAAN Fighter Jet

    Beware what you read in the Indian press. KAAN is not ready to storm world markets, is it? Perhaps 5 years down the line when it is tested and certificated... About KSA becoming involved in KAAN: does KSA want to be involved in a 5G programme when 6G GCAP should be available less than 10 years...
