The integrated wind tunnel model of the AMCA Mk1 shows some of the design characters that will be included at least in the Mk1 variant of the jet from the start. The scaled Model showcases a Diverterless Supersonic Inlet (DSI) that will addition of the 3D bump will help in concealing engine blades from radar waves from bouncing back to their source, and serpentine air intake will further improve the stealth and design elements of the aircraft.

AMCA sports an advanced Infrared search and track sensor (IRST) in the traditional position installed atop the aircraft’s nose, near its windscreen, there is chatter that the IRST system is retractable which will make it the first of its kind. Although the placement of the IRST sensor will hurt the radar signature on the forward fuselage section, it could be a stop-gap measure at least for the initial prototypes till DRDO can come up with its own Distributed Aperture System (DAS) style system in Mk1 or Mk2 variants of the jet.

Former Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Arup Raha while delivering a talk on the ” The Chanakya Dialogues” advocated arming India’s Strategic Forces Command (SFC) with a bomber squadron of its own that will be independent of the IAF. The Strategic Forces Command (SFC) is the only tri-service functional command that controls, manages, and administers the country’s nuclear weapons.

idrw like to point out that SFC a few years back had suggested it be allowed to operate 40 Sukhoi-30MKI that will be in charge of delivering nuclear payloads independent of the Indian Air Force. SFC is dependent on the IAF’s fleet of fighter jets like Mirage-2000 and Su-30MKI to deliver nuclear payloads then IAF top brass was strongly against the creation of a such separate fleet.

The stark contrast in the development of the two Kashmirs has created unrest in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) as India is implementing several new projects in Jammu and Kashmir to meet the demands of its citizens. The unrest in PoK is evident as the so-called Youm-e-Istehsal (Exploitation Day) being observed under the patronage of the Pak and PoK governments has not been able to garner much support from the people and Islamist parties, reported local media.

Moreover, the gravity of the situation in PoK can be gauged by a pamphlet which shows a PoK girl on the eve of so-called Youm-e-Istehsal kicking a Pak Army jeep and declaring “Daughters of Kashmir will decide their own future.” Sentiments against Pakistan, the puppet PoK government and Pak Army and other security forces in the context of the proposed 15th amendment, tourism authority and occupation of PoK lands by Pakistan Army for establishing its installations, are fierce and alarming, reported local media. PoK has suffered many budgetary cuts with the government favouring corrupt politicians as well as China making inroads into the territory and using the land to fulfil its ambitions.

Armed with homemade weapons, including iron rods studded with spikes and wooden clubs wrapped with barbed wire, they attacked a contingent of Indian soldiers. The medieval, hand-to-hand combat lasted for six hours.

?When the brutal melee was over, 20 Indian soldiers had been killed and, according to Indian media, over 40 Chinese PLA soldiers were dead. Though China has never officially released the number of its casualties, the event is considered to be the deadliest clash between the two nuclear neighbors since 1975.

 The death and the popularity of Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu or Sidhu Moose Wala, who had got caught with the wrong set of people when he was alive, is being turned into what the Indian agencies see as the last attempt to revive the defunct Khalistani movement, an operation with large scale ramifications, which is being handled from Canada and Pakistan by involving the narco-terror ring that is run by Indo-Canadian gangsters who operate out of Canada.

The Indian agencies, for a long time and even before his death, had been tracking the links of Moose Wala with the Indo-Canadian criminal network, which has penetrated and is entrenched deeply within the Canadian law enforcement, including its intelligence agencies.

Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) has been grappling with a flurry of protests recently due to the Pakistan government’s plan to amend the region’s constitution to take away financial and administrative powers of the local government. This has resulted in a massive uprising in all the 10 districts of PoJK.

Reports said that on July 1, a joint secretary in the Ministry of Kashmir Affairs in Islamabad sent a letter to the chief secretary of PoJK, informing that the Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahbaz Sharif has constituted a six-member committee to seek amendments in the interim constitution of PoJK. The letter has asked the PoJK government to nominate its three members to participate in the deliberations.

With a team of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) likely to visit Pakistan by the end of this month, Islamabad is said to be preparing grounds for declaring terror organisationJaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as “missing and untraceable”. Even as all eyes are on whether or not Pakistan takes an action against Azhar, the security agencies in Islamabad are just “going through the motions” of searching for the whereabouts of Masood Azhar. “They are not serious and are simulating action.

Pakistan is trying to mislead the FATF once again. The team of the global terror watchdog is going to visit Islamabad from 28 August,” diplomatic sources told The Sunday Guardian. “India is closely monitoring activities of the law enforcement agencies in Pakistan to check whether they present the real case to the FATF or not. If they do not do so, then India through diplomatic channels will raise it,” sources added.

The pro-Indian government militia, Ikhwan-ul-Musli­m­een—that targeted Pakistan-backed milit­a­nts in Kashmir—was launched in 1993 by popular folk singer-­turned militant Kuka Parray, after his surre­n­der to Indian security forces. Soon, the methods they used began to be questioned, as they too began facing accusations of human rights violations similar to those adopted by militants.

“Kuka Parray was a prized asset, not only because he could do the dirty job for the army, but also because he was the only one to provide a breakthrough in a war India seemed to be losing—or at best, not winning—in Kashmir,” says an army officer who had served in Kashmir till 1997.
