#OpSwiftRetort air strikes - plausible scenarios:

1. PAF intended to strike Indian targets with aim to cause damage but missed due to inherent system limitation, poor execution or timely counter by IAF

2. Action was only to signal capability (stated reason)

3. Both

#Balakot
Analysis is complicated due to:

1. High disinformation level by Pak military establishment. Not just in present scenario but historically as well.

2. No official comment by #IndianArmy or #IndianAirForce on the efficacy of the strikes.

3. No anecdotes from history

#Balakot
@joe_sameer goes with scenario #1 basis high variation in targeting error. But then 2 different types of weapons and platforms were employed and both are relatively unknown as far as efficacy is concerned. Neither is PAF known for air strikes.

The Truth on #BalakotAirStrike & Pakistan retaliation Feb 27

During Pakistan retaliation to Indian strike at Balakot terror base, US monitoring agencies knew as soon as the F-16 was shot down by #Abhinandan
America was upset with it's use on India
2/8
But per US it was necessary to save Pakistan from India's anger because as soon as the Indian pilot was captured by Pakistan, India had prepared the BrahMos missile to carry out large & grueling action on Pakistan. As per US, the plan was to finish Pakistan Air Force at night
3/8
America immediately warned Pakistan that the pilot in possession should not be harmed, otherwise, it would be impossible to stop India & warned that in the event of war, it will lock the F-16 engine of all 45 jets given to Pakistan by the US

Notice any difference? #BalakotAirStrike
Here are the 2 satellite images, old and new, side-by-side, for comparison.

Left: Dated Google satellite image of building @ 34.433055, 73.324516

Right: Today's satellite image.

The building's pulverized. Roofing's gone. Terrain is pock-marked with craters. #BalakotAirStrike
Israeli S-2000 PGM bomb: "It first penetrates through the roof, then enters the building and explodes after a delay ... It does not destroy the building."

However, ROOFS GO MISSING.

That's PRECISELY what you see in the latest image.

1. Friends, Imran Khan is not a nice guy, he is no great statesman. In Pakistan he is known as 'Taliban Khan'. The only reason Pakistan has agreed to handover Wing Commander Abhinandan so fast, is because it wants to appear to be the reasonable and peace-loving party.
2. India clearly lost the psy-ops war and the global PR initiative when Abhinandan's parachute landed on the PoK side. Pakistan faced absolutely no pressure from India. It had the upper hand for the past 24 hours.
3. India could not lose the strategic advantage we had achieved through the #BalakotAirStrike. Therefore, to expect the GoI to thank Pakistan for returning Abhinandan, or agreeing to talks immediately is utterly naive. Doing that would be a psychological defeat.

Note on possible #IAF #airstrike today. There is NO SUCH THING as "terror camps". These aren't concentrated like schools or colleges. These are disaggregated and dispersed AT ALL TIMES. If targets were struck they would be military targets
.2n this IAF Embraer 145 AWACS was patrolling since the early hours. Watchers know this is an unusual pattern, although it did come close to the area of the alleged strike, it patrolled South as well. The plane has since returned to base. Source: @zone5aviation #IAF #airstrike
.3n for context..here is where balakot is
