    • Hi !

      I just joined this forum because recently the type 69 II G has been introduced into the video game "war thunder". The thing is, there have been conflicts to know if the vehicle was representated correctly. Depending on the source I can find, it has either a 105mm gun or a 120mm, a thermal imager sight or not etc.

      So I think asking the experts might be a better idea, and here I am

      Excuse me if this isnt the good location or if it's off topic, I'm a bit lost

      Thanks in advance for your anwsers !

    • The Bangladesh Ordnance Factories or BOF has started full scale production of 122mm guided and unguided rocket systems at its new facility. BOF is gearing up to manufacture all 120mm, 122mm, 155mm ammunition indigenously. At present it only makes 105mm ammunition with help from China.

      Making such ammunition is integral towards reaching a degree of basic self-sufficiency. Its critical that Bangladesh armed forces be equipped with own line of ammunition for army, navy and air force.

      At a basic stage BOF and BAF should be making:

      Mortar shells (60mm, 81mm, 82mm, 120mm)


      Artillery ammunition (105mm, 122mm, 155mm)


      Naval missiles (C-704)


      Naval mines (NATO/Chinese)


      Naval gunnery munitions (35mm, 37mm, 40mm, 76mm, 76.2mm, 100mm) 


      Aerial bombs (smart and general purpose)


      Air defence gun munitions (12.7mm, 14.5mm, 35mm, 37mm, 40mm, 57mm)  


      MANPADS (FN-16, QW-18)

    • BSF kills two Bangladeshis

      Our Correspondent, Lalmonirhat
      Two Bangladeshi cattle traders were shot dead allegedly by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along Hatibandha border in Lalmonirhat yesterday morning.

      Omar Faruq, officer-in-charge of Hatibandha Police Station, said they, along with the members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), recovered the bodies from Bonchauki border in Gotamari upazila.

      The bodies of Suruj Islam, 18, and Suruj Mia, 37, of Amjhola village in the upazila, were sent to Lalmonihat Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsies, our Lalmonirhat correspondent reported.

      Quoting witnesses, Tapas Chandra, commander of Banchauki BGB Camp, said BSF patrol team of Setai camp in Cooch Behar district of India’s West Bengal opened fire on the duo when they were entering Bangladesh with Indian cattle.

      Lt Colonel Tauhidul Alam, commander officer (CO) of Lalmonirhat 15 BGB Battalion, said they sent a letter to BSF protesting the killing of the two Bangladeshis.

    • The Bangladesh Air Force will procure a squadron of maritime strike fighter aircraft equipped with 12 airframes.

      In consideration were Su-30 and now F/A-18.

      The purchased aircraft will be new, they will come with a comprehensive weapons and support package including anti-ship missiles, anti-radiation missiles, BVR and SRAAMs, various ground attack munitions including drop and precision guided ones, rockets and fixed aircraft cannons.

      In my view the F/A-18E/F would be the most potent symbol of BAF power at sea in terms of capability, benefiting from scale of economy in terms of pricing, integration with EFT and land based Western origin air defence system (such as Leonardo and Thales radar network/sensors).

      The maritime strike fighter aircraft acquisition will occur after the first squadron of MRCA's are purchased.

    • The Bangladesh Army ordered one regiment of VT-5 light tanks with eventual requirement for 200 plus units.

      The order was confirmed by CAS Gen Aziz Ahmed as well as numerous Bangladesh Army related programs (videos) last year.
