Big name: Indian Air Force forms new Squadron Flying Bullets


In India, decided on the second squadron, which will be equipped with Indian-made fighters Tejas. On May 27, a ceremony is scheduled for introducing a squadron with the latest combat aircraft into the Indian Air Force. This ceremony will be opened by the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force of India, Marshal Rakesh Bhadauria.


We are talking about the squadron under the loud name "Flying bullets." She got the 18th number in the structure of the Indian Air Force. The location of the 18th Air Force squadron will be Sulur (Tamil Nadu) in the south of the country. The 45th Squadron of the Indian Air Force is also located there. It is notable for the fact that it became the first in the military aviation, which began to receive fighters HAL Tejas. The name of this aviation formation is Flying Daggers.

It is reported that the Commander-in-Chief of Bhadauria will assign the Flying Bullets Squadron to the name of the Indian pilot Nirmal Singh Sehon, who showed himself during the repulsion of the Pakistani Air Force attack on Srinagar airfield in 1971. The Pakistani Air Force attacked an airfield on US-made F-86 Saber aircraft. Nirmal Sehon took off on a British-made Folland Gnat light fighter. Entering the battle with six Pakistani Air Force F-86 Saber planes, the 28-year-old pilot died. In India, he is honored as a national hero.

The first Flying Bullet Squadron in India was formed in 1965.

For reference: HAL Tejas - an easy single-seat multipurpose Indian fighter. In the Indian Air Force, such aircraft began to arrive in 2015. To date, the cost of a unit with updated software, but without weapons, is less than $ 30 million. Maximum takeoff weight is 15,5 tons. The engines used are from General Electric. Maximum speed - 1,8 M. Practical ceiling - 16 km. Range - up to 2 thousand km. Suspension points - 8.

Tejas in addition to the regular version has a deck version LCA (N). While fighters of this modification are being tested.

        So their guide was also knowledgeable, he told them a lot of interesting things during the ecotour. Especially the Poles remembered the final phase of the tour, where the guide Susanin told about their origin, their relationship and about that Christmas tree on which they can spin, well, or spin, on this Christmas tree ... laughing

      Maybe such a tradition in those Mevsts. This is the name of the Kurdish national army of Peshmerga - who is opposite death - is also not about optimism, but about the willingness to die.

    "Flying bullets"

    Looks like they will also be launched by powder gases, but they will have 5 years on the way with their own 5th generation engine with a draft of 16 tons.
    Oh well done Indians, they started with a lousy copy of the Mirage, and they are going to create a 5th generation unit already, and they’ll come up with a cool name; already a mean male tear of pride appears for them; I want to grow up to be like them :)

    Everything is correct - heroes must be immortalized, and traditions should be protected. And as for the name .. well, the main thing is that the Indians would like the pilots to be proud ..

    I don’t understand why everyone here is laughing and scoffing at them? They are just starting and doing their own ... ...
    And if you want to laugh, let's laugh at our military-industrial complex !!!
    OCD Platform 2010, Kamaz began to draw a likeness of the MZTK tractors. They are ? No !! The Russian Federation begged Lukashenko to sell the MZKT plant. He refused. DPRK and China make such tractors in their countries, rather than buying wink
    OCD "Premier 476" - the beginning of the 2000s. Are there AWACS-A-100 troops? No !!
    Boat Lada project 677. Bookmark Sankut-Petersburg 1997. They were commissioned in 2010 !!!!!! As a test bench, not a combat boat laughing .
    She was supposed to be with VNEU, Rubin could not master. In 2010, Malachite began to develop VNEU ..
    2020 is VNEU? Two KB tried to create. NO it !!!!
    Military transport IL 112V-2004 MO approved. Is he in the army? NO !!!
    Ptur Hermes-A. The beginning of 2000..Are there any troops? No!
    Recall about the Mace? ... .......... And now we laugh and mock about the development deadlines and the pathetic cries of "have no tax in the world" laughing !

      The BAZ copes with the tractors perfectly, Bulava is standing on the database, with VNEU we have left the outdated Stirling and do our own, which is harder than the finished scheme, but you can keep silent about aviation, after the EBN, which the aviation industry just ruined, now it’s actually being re-created, at the modern level . And about the Chinese tractors: the MZKT documentation bought for a penny is not quite its own. And without the Russian engines and wheels MZKT, alas, will not leave anywhere.

        Baz does not cope. Iskander, Yars, S-300, S-400 (all-height detector), coastal Bastion, Ball. Everything is on the MZKT chassis ... ... ... Where did they leave with VNEU, its financing has already been stopped)). For 20 years there is nothing. Swedes have their own VNEU. Germans, French, Spaniards, Chinese and Japanese, and from countries that bought boats from them ...... How many years did the Mace and how many successful launches did it have?)))

          What do you want? Designed, made and immediately to the troops ??? But no! Until childhood diseases are cured, any other new military equipment goes through the full test phase. Yes, here we are losing enormous resources. like time. But keep in mind, everything is done from scratch, and without ripping off old designs, This is not for you to China, where they rip off other people's designs and give out everything as your own!
