DEFEXPO Day 3: Random Glimpses

DefExpo 2010 ends tomorrow, but won't be going back. Was very dull this year. Posts on Sikorsky losing out on the VVIP chopper deal and Northrop's E-2D bid soon.

shiv is it really that dull this year?...i was actually thinking of taking a day off from work and attending...pls. let me know its worth it?....if it's indeed dull perhaps that's coz there are no female models at the stall this year...and hence no one is showing up..:)

Why IAF is written on the model of AN-74T-200MP?

On the L&T poster,though unlikely,is that the image of the real deal Arihant?

Kobus said...

Does the top image shows the Arihant you saw at the launch?

is the An-74 on line for purchase by the IAF? Or is it what it'll look like once the An-32 is done with the overhaul? ;)

That's not an Arihant at all - That's a Trafalgar class British SSN. The tube in front of the sail, the little protruding wart on the nose are all dead giveaways. you can see a pic of the Trafalgar here with all the relevant features
