The following is a video of a test-flight of the LCA, which has probably been created by Pakistanis. Its audio is jovial, but the video of the LCA is very informative:

The IN looks very impressive. And the Nag is crazy! Hitting it at the top!
Just to give more info, I'm pretty sure that the inboard weapons station is carrying twin Mistral IR AAMs similar in capability to the Stinger family, and designed/made by France.Originally Posted by Indianfighter
Thank you for that information planeman, as I did not know about that weapon. However at an Indian forum, a member mentioned that it was the Lahat missile system from Israel.Originally Posted by planeman

Do you have any videos of the Indian Navy doing a military drill?
It's an easy mistake to make but in this case they be wrong.Originally Posted by Indianfighter
The LAHAT looks different. At any rate this other picture of the same launcher from another angle confirms my ID. It's a twin Mistral launcher http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/Im...g2_itemId=4001
The following video demonstrates the hovering of the Harrier and take-off of the Sea-king aircraft over the aircraft-carrier Vikrant of the IN. The audio features a patriotic song.Originally Posted by swimmerXC
The quality of the video is slightly poor.
Well, the following report about the Dhruv's exhibition at the Farnborough 2006 mentions that the Dhruv shall be fitted with 8 LAHAT missile systems :At any rate this other picture of the same launcher from another angle confirms my ID. It's a twin Mistral launcher
"The Army version has eight LAHAT air-to-ground laser homing missiles as well as a radar warning receiver and decoy launcher and Israeli avionics. A GIAT M621 2 mm gun turret can be fitted in place of the H-MOSP sensor pod."

Yes, but that doesn't make those LAHAT. It can carry eight LAHAt - i.e. two quad launchers - but those are still Mistral. LAHAT looks like this: http://www.defense-update.com/images/lahat-quad.jpg - you don't have to start counting on your toes to realise that a twin Mistral launcher is not a quad LAHAT launcher.Originally Posted by Indianfighter
Your assesment about the presence of mistral missiles on the Dhruv appears correct, but the following statements mention a quad mistral system :-
"The Army has also decided to arm the ALH Dhruv with a
quad MBDA Mistral missile pod, a 20 mm
gun from GIAT, rocket pods from FZ
Belgium and with Israeli EW equipment at
Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL)."

It maybe possible that a dual-mistral launcher may have been selected. Also, the author of the article posted by me, is Major General (retd) Ashok K Mehta, who is a defence columnist. His article about the Dhruv at Farnborough 2006 does not mention the Mistral, but the LAHAT. Can it be possible that a dual Lahat launcher has been developed ?

The pictures show twin Mistral AAM tubes.
The quad LAHAT may have been on the other side of the aircraft - this picture of it at Paris airshow clearly shows the LAHAT: http://r2singh.tripod.com/paris_air_...album?i=11&s=1
I have acknowledged your assessment earlier already, hence such statements are unnecessary. Besides my photos in question were from Farnborough and not Paris.Originally Posted by planeman
