    • India's foreign policy is rather shallow and under Modi its becoming more insular because it has withdrawn very much from its international commitments. Hamstrung by US and Israeli alliance it has become a new milking cow for Western military hardware manufacturers who are using their servile agents in India to create a big fear factor in Indian society about the threat from China. From banning of Chinese origin mobile apps to boycott of Chinese products they are going backwards daily. China does not have to defeat India militarily. It will just buy India out of everything. Moreover China will now exploit India's poor relations with its neighbouring countries to further hem it in.
    • India lacks the necessary instruments to think outside its reactionary policies.  Looking at Modi's proclivity to soothe its nationalist base and utter disdain of their neighbor's diplomatic maturity, india is not thinking the way it needs to. Its disappointing that india will let loose of all its baggage onto us. It opens a lot of doors to them to delve into coercive actions to muddy up the water. Here are few factors that might play out in near future: 1) India with its current trajectory (right after Ladakh) will allow US control some part of its narratives. Americans will take them for a ride, just like the way they did with Pakistan. 2) Given the current government's status over last 11 years in power, india would like to exploit the fault lines in Bangladesh's electoral processes.  3) There's always the Hindu minority card india can go back to, any time & when ever it wants. 4) This ad-hoc approach from india is designed to exact more concessions from us in near term. Going forward, india's action towards its neighbors, i.e- Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal will be more punitive in nature. In this current juncture, I can't see how india can come out on top against China. But lets be honest, India can't provide the same tariff break as China can. India's market is simply not as matured and developed as China's.  Since 2005, india failed to invest fully in manufacturing the way China did. Now the country is trailing behind, its rather a wishful thinking that under the mercy of Protectionist Americans they will get some semblance of strategic manufacturing capability. While in reality, its China who is contributing to manufacturing flights from its own territory to its more favorable trade partners.  Modi is making moves it to sooth his own base, he knows the pit fall of continuing in this path for far too long!! In this unprecedented time, Modi needs to make his quick fix to come out as strong man here!! But he would like his base to forget about this incident as soon as possible!! That's his wish    
    • Bangladesh stops trading with India at land borders after India refused to allow Bangladeshi imports. This could be a retaliation by India for the Chinese allowing tax-free import of Bangladeshi goods. If this continues Bangladesh will adopt stronger measures at diplomatic level and possibly take up the matter with the World Trade Organisation (WTO). India benefits far more than Bangladesh does in terms of trade and ultimately Bangladesh will replace Indian imports with alternatives from China, Pakistan, Myanmar, Egypt and Turkey. Its really not wise for India to push this further as they will make their own population suffer because those Indian traders rely on exports to Bangladesh.

    • Defseca has obtained exclusive photos from the construction site of a Bangladesh Navy submarine base being developed by a Chinese state owned company.

      The $1.22 billion submarine base is the largest ever base building project undertaken by the Chinese outside its own territory.

      It signifies the start of a new strategic partnership between Dhaka and Beijing. A full report is coming soon for members.

    • 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.
