    • Bangladesh bringing high-speed internet to remote islands via Bangabandhu Satellite   Shamim Ahamed,  bdnews24.com Published: 08 Aug 2020 03:24 AM BdST Updated: 08 Aug 2020 03:24 AM BdST   Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited or BCSCL has begun work to bring high-speed internet through Bangabandhu Satellite to 31 remote islands where it is difficult to give connections through cable or expand network. The state company’s Chairman Shahjahan Mahmood told bdnews24.com that they connected 20 of the islands via the first satellite of the country under a Tk 400 million project that is expected to be completed this year. Hamed Hasan Muhammad Mohiuddin, the project’s director, said 11 of the islands are situated in Bhola, eight in Chandpur, seven in Patuakhali, and one each in Pirojpur, Barishal and Noakhali. Saint Martin’s Island in Cox’s Bazar will also get internet access under the project for emergency reasons though it has mobile internet facilities The authorities are setting up around five Very Small Aperture Terminals or VSATs in each of the islands for connections with 10 Mbps download speed and 4 Mbps upload speed. The schools and government offices on the islands were being given WiFi connections. More than 300,000 people will get the services once the project is completed. It began in March 2019. Mohiuddin said the project emphasises telemedicine and education. “We’ve achieved success after giving connections experimentally,” he said. BCSCL began operating with its own earnings through the satellite two years after it was launched into space in May 2018. As many as 35 private TV stations are using the satellite for broadcast. It is also used for direct-to-home television services.       https://bdnews24.com/business/2020/08/08/bangladesh-bringing-high-speed-internet-to-remote-islands-via-bangabandhu-satellite
    • The construction yard of Padma Bridge in Munshiganj has collapsed. Already, 35 roadway slabs, 15 railway girders and 10 support pipes of the bridge have been destroyed. On Friday (July 31) afternoon, about 200 feet of defense wall was lost in the Padma.   In the presence of officials from the contractor company China Major Bridge Company and the bridge authority, an attempt was made to remove the cranes urgently to protect these assets. But it was not possible. The severity of the erosion is so high that even the cranes are quickly removed if there is a risk of sinking in the reverse Padma. One by one, the valuable materials of the Padma Bridge preserved in the yard are disappearing in front of our eyes.   Dewan Abdul Quader, executive engineer of the Padma Bridge, told Sangbad that the intensity of the Padma current is so high that nothing can be done in this situation. The demolition is underway in the southeastern part of the yard.

    • 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)

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

      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.
