LTTE prepares for final push before Kilinochchi falls

source: defence.lk
Signs are the LTTE is planning for one last massive push before the Army breaks through to Kilinochchi. A number of counter attack teams have been assembled under LTTE leader Lawrence in the general area Akkarayan. Fighting could start any moment now between these teams and the 57 Division.

Sources indicated to DefenceWire that if this push is successfully beaten back, there is nothing standing in the way of the Army reaching Kilinochchi. Frontline field commanders aknowledge that Lawrence is the best in the LTTE for the counter attack having observed him at Vilattikulam where he was in charge until now.

Meanwhile rumors were ripe yesterday and today that LTTE's 'Colonel' Bhanu has been killed at Mankulam. Unfortunately no evidence exist to suggest that this is the case todate. Yesterday rocket attacks were launched on four identified positions at Mankulam based on ground intelligence. The target was indeed Bhanu.

Volleys of FuelAir rockets were launched which can ignite and incinerate an entire area by drawing oxygen from the air coupled with highly inflammable materials contained in a special warhead used by the Army. The casualties to the LTTE in this attack is not known as of now.

Bhanu has been busy in the Mankulam area trying to counter attack troops engaged in operations at Mallavi. He is one of the least capable 'commanders' the LTTE has ever produced. His demise, however, could have an impact on the morale of the Tigers.

Thanks DW..
It seems a lot of fire powder is on the way...I hope this could be the last battle for killi to crush the terrorists

Sam Perera said...

Bless our soldier, blesss our commanders. I hope that we have adequately reinforced the 57th. Tonight will be a sleepless night for me. Probably, I will check the news sites every hour. What ever it is, my heart is with my SLDF brothers and sisters.

Bless Armed Forces of Sri Lanka!
Bless Sri Lanka!!

perein said...

Thank you DW.
Looking foward to some commentry every few hours from you.

Go on guys... Let's finish the game..

Observer said...

Its great news if Bhanu is gone..!

We need to get this Theepan monkey the same way as well!

Btw guys, I was just wondering what if these stupid tigers kept their air capability under cover till this moment. If they managed to pull out a surprise at this moment, we might be in a bit of a difficult situation. Then we would be burdened with the added need of defending the air.

In a way it is fortunate for us that the ztte idiots staged the strike much earlier, so that we are kind of ready for an air attack with Radars and F7s in place. Especially when the ground fighting escalates. phew ..!!!

Kaavalan said...

the coming days will definitely decide the fate of Sri Lanka... best luck to all of you!

make sure you define a path for escape route as well ... as the 57th division and all other SLA will start to RUN for their life...

remember LTTE is capable and has in the past started from ground 0, so even if you take out Kilinochi, do not think its the end of it you fools...

nemesis said...

YES!!! At last we have got the FAE rounds our boys have been asking for!! Thanks DW, Wish i was there to see the place go up in flames.

Losing LTTE coolies.... this is the ideal time to say your Sunday prayers in advance for the LTTE bastards who are just about to be Eelamized.

As for our world-class SLDF fighting forces... May the triple Gems bless you and protect you from any harm... but be assured we shall never forget you and your loved ones.... You will indeed be re-born in our great country... with all the blessings of your fellow Sri Lankans.

The whole world is watching... how the Sri Lankan forces decimate the most ruthless terrorist force ever to roam on earth....

Never forget.... Our raw Sri Lankan patriotism goes 'in' before the bullet comes 'out'...

We don't underestimate our enemies...we know what they are capable of and there weaknesses, so don't worry kaawa-lan !!!

BlackPanther said...

Guys

It is not yet over. Worst is yet to come.

Just to pose a question to your selves. Are you doing anything actively to help our heros (SLDF)who are fighting for us other that posting on this blog? If not its not late. At least visit the injured heros in hospitals. There are many who are in pain, wounded and crippled. Just speak and spend some time with them.Please don't ask war stories from them.

Just a thought......

Chatura said...

this is good news. then there probably wont be a house to house battle and civilian casualties will be much less.. like someone posted earlier we can make a good "harvest".

TRUE SRI LANKAN said...

Guys.. NEWS!!! A night time raid on a LTTE King Pin... Hope for the best...
Air Force Jets raid hideout of LTTE kingpins- Kilinochchi

Gringo said...

blackpanther...

Well suggested.

Real, full-blooded Sri Lankans don't hesitate to reach out touch our fighting men and women... and loved ones of the dead and injured.

Mere 'talk' is not enough.... and also... there's no point doing something 'later on'...

Oh.... that moment of truth is now... Not tomorrow. Choose from many programs described on the websites of our forces.

Please do it TODAY!

N.B.

Recent US research has established that one of the 'things' that makes human beings 'happy'... is seeing another deserving human being having a better life using his money.

As for me... I'm VERY HAPPY!

Thanks DW

I treat these brave soldiers almost every day. They are injured, but not broken. My heart cries out for them as I treat each wound they have suffered. They are the true heros of this country. I urge my fellow countrymen to read DW, and be aware of the sacrifices these anonymous bretheren are making for us. May god bless them and keep them safe.

Getting a 'least capable' commander to do so much of work at this crucial moment shows their desperation.
As their grounds shrink, so is their places to hide. Few decapitating on their remaining leadership will fizzle out the organization.

Apino said...

DW, thanks once again for keeping us updated....Before I start work this is the first news site I read now....it used be Defense.lk...that was before I found you site.

I have said this many times...but I will say it again. I think time is ripe for the TINCANS to do a more daring attack....may be targeting the last place we expect them to hit. I don't think this time they plan to return to Vanni...So I hope relevant counter measures are well placed to meet such an event.

Cheers

Saman K. said...

DW,
Thanks for the updates.

Haha our boys with night flying toys.Good no sleep for bloody terrorists.Finally MIG29's with our boys.Now ltte will have real night mare. Army is using Air/Fuel bombs from land and SLAF using AF and bunker busters from the air.

Go boys go. You terrorists don't go closer to the sea SLN is ready with home made arrows.

This time no escape for you ealamists.

Your all surface bunkers will get air/fuel bomb treatment and under ground bunker with busters followed by air/fuel bombs.You fat ass know what is air/fuel bomb and how Russians/US forces used them in afganistan.Our brave bros are better than those US guys.

You bloody terrorists now you can not count your bodies.You have to collect your bones and pieces of skins all over.

Apino said...

Hi there TRUE SRI LANKAN

Thanks for the update....... Guys... NEWS!!!!
Air Force Jets raid hideout of LTTE kingpins- Kilinochchi .....

Few questions:
a) Is it the first time SLAF did a night bombing raid in the recent past ( I mean not just blind drops)?
b) Does this mean we have acquired night flying capabilities?
c) Are the Mig 29's in action already?
Hope a knowledgeable person can update this civilian Joe

DefenceWire,

I asssume that KAB, RAB, AAB etc are busy like beehives these days. If time and other factors permit, can you please get a photo of SLAF activities. Such images will be very siginificant for future students of this historical war. Just an idea.

Apino said...

Blackpanther,,

Hats off to you my brother. If I was in SL, I would have acted on your suggestion. But I will do what I can. I agree that most of us can do more and should do more.

And thanks for all the Patriots...like Samp Perera, Perein and many others....yes our thoughts are also with the brother fighting for our future. God bless and guide them to safety.

Cheers All

Maverick said...

DW,
Thanks for the update.

May the noble tripple gem bless and protect our war heros.

I hope our frontline have been informed about the build up and forthcoming threat, and they're adequately armed and prepared.

We need to get maximum close air support from AF and artillery units.

Looks like they're reading for a do-or-die battle. Once our brave hearts decmate that, we should be on our way to Killi, sooner rather than later.

Apino said...

This is to All LTTE supporters like Kaavalan, AssinR, Ruwani et.al.

LETS BE REALISTIC

We the Sri Lankans, sure do hope the SDLF will be victorious soon, and the LTTE will be decimated beyond resurgence.

I'm sure you guys must be thinking the exact opposite...right.

Only time will tell who is right and who is wrong....and bly me non of us got a Crystal ball/ time machine...guys don't tell me you can do that too!!!

And there is nothing much we can do by scratching each others' "NET EGO" in this Blog.(Yes, I fully acknowledge Behind our laptops we can be Rambo, Fantastic Killing Machines etc, but in real life some of us may be pot bellied accountants, stock brokers, Geriatrics, Invalids who's biggest problem is to find a way to get up from the chair we are sitting in)

BUT what we CAN do is to meet in this blog in 30 days and take stock using OVI's ( Objectively Verifiable Indicators)
a) How many dead fighters ...photos to substantiate...err not the best, but will have to do
b) Ground lost...videos with land marks to substantiate
c) Key military bases captured...as above
d) Key Civilian infrastructure lost...as above
e) Key assets lost (Aircraft, Ships if any, Boats etc)...may be difficult to verify...but videos can do and the absence of future use of the assets can be the best indicator
f) Relevant leaders killed ( Please lets not include Chokka's here)...as above
g) Increase/ decrease of the civilian population left under the control of the relevant party.....we may be able to take INGO figures...at least they are not biased towards Sri Lankans.

Over to you guys!

PS.

For those patriotic realist here...now now...don't gang up on me for the above suggestion...no harm trying to reason with them....I do know Denial is the Best Friend of all Losers.

For those LTTE supporters, one more thing I would like to say. If you noticed majority of the bloggers here are SRI LANKAN supporters...so no use in calling us fools just because you don't like what is being written here. True or false...we write our wishes, believes, hopes etc.

What you can do is to find a blog, where you LTTE supporters are the majority...and I'm sure we won't crash land in that and make wild accusations....SRI LANKANS wherever they go will peacefully cohabits with the majority. In such a place, you can do all the name calling, glorify what you think is right and....we will be the happiest for you.

May peace be with you and all of us.

Political Observer said...

Moshe,

If I got your points about the two phases correctly, I concur.

I am not sure of this comment of yours though.

"this is a REAL concern. IF we had FIRST concentrated on mula (than kili) then these phases would have worked in clock-like precision."

We are perhaps underestimating the targeting of Killinochchi over Mulativu. The key element of any strategy is surprise, and I think the move to Killi has stunned pretty much all observers, including me.

I like that about the current SLA.

What I do not like is the over reliance on the 57th alone.

My sense is the LTTE realizes the need to blunt the 57th and it now going to do a proper job on it, or so they think.

In terms of your point above, I think the key to the success was to go after the weaker areas of the LTTE. Eastern province first, then the softer areas in the West Wanni, help the civilians into Vavuniya, etc.

However, there is another reason to do this that is strategically essential: drive the LTTE into an area with few civilians and no escape route to India.

I think the SLA will love to have them all in Mullativu and the area, particularly the dense jungles West of Iranamadu, where the 59th is waiting for them.

It is in such terrain the LRRP and the Special Forces excel. They fare less well in open terrain with mortar fire raining on them.

In war it is also about demoralizing the other side, as you know. I think Killinochchi coming under SLA siege has shifted the perception of the Thamils at large, and also brought other voices into play delegitimizing the LTTE.

Capturing the capital is crucial in this first phase.

Now you make important points about the second phase. I think some lessons have been learned in the East.

However, the East is not the North. It will not be as easy to run a provincial level system. So there has to be innovation. Else where I make the case to go a district at a time with full devolution, for which I have been “shelled.”

P.O.

Or else.... KABBBBOOOOOMMMMM... right?

Corey said...

Perhaps the US and its allies can learn from our forces. Here's what a US Navy Research Professor Thomas Johnson said on what went wrong for the US in Afganistan:

NEWSWEEK: What is flawed about our approach in Afghanistan?
Thomas Johnson: It's the same problem the Soviets had in their engagement from 1979 to 1989 … The United States, just as the Soviet Union, controls all the urban areas and especially provincial capitals and Kabul. But this is a rural counterinsurgency, just as the mujahedin's conflict against the Soviets was also a rural insurgency. And you don't win a rural insurgency from Kabul or Jalalabad or Kandahar. You win a rural insurgency by maintaining a presence and insulating the villages in the rural areas. And that's what we don't do—unlike what the mujahedin did in their battle with the Soviets and unlike what the Taliban are presently doing in Afghanistan today, where they operate on the village level on a 7/24 basis, either intimidating or winning the allegiance of the Afghan people. That's what it takes to win an insurgency and that's what it also takes to win a counterinsurgency.

Sri Lanka appears to be doing just what the US didn't do: Their forces are going right into the heart of the problem. Impressive!

Gringo said...

[Sri Lanka appears to be doing just what the US didn't do: Their forces are going right into the heart of the problem. Impressive!

The difference is great SLDF are fighting in their own territory... they know every nook and corner of their MOTHERLAND.... They know every jungle... they know every montain... and the joy of killing cowardly Tamil terrorists like dogs is immense... All that for the beloved Motherlanka.

To bring a smile to my face... Desperate LTTE coolies weep in front of bewildered foreigners... classifying us as invaders....!!!

Ranil,
one of your your dreams (mine too) has come true.

the planning element of SLDF op.s in terms of weapons deployment is SIMPLY AMAZING.

we should not forget that other than REGULAR consumables, other stuff takes a long time to arrive. so you need planning ahead. right weapons for the right phase of the war. marvelous.

Moshe Dyan said...

P.O.,

mmmm....

i guess i should NOW stop this kili-mula argument as SLDFs have made the choice and approaching kili AGRESSIVELY.

however, contrary to these victory expectations, i MUST insist that capture of kili will NOT be the end of LTTE's conventional war. (according to SF LTTE lost its conventional fighting capability some time ago. i don't buy that.)

politicians and others should NOT give too much hope to ppl. the WORST part of conventional war (LTTE style conventional war of course) will come after kili.

Hi Gringo and others,
I think some of your comments are too harsh at this moment. The time is not too distant when the whole country will be liberated from terrorism and the healing process between both sides will have to begin. It must be hard for the people who supported the LTTE to watch the current proceedings. Let them vent. This will help in the long run during the healing process.

Interesting move by Canada:

Pro-LTTE Sinhalese leader's visa to Canada rejected:

http://www.srilankaguardian.org/2008/09/bahus-visa-to-canada-rejected.html

Is this guy really pro-LTTE?

Rana said...

Guys,

Entering into Kili is not a good plan without taking Nachchikuda, Kiranchi, Valappadu and Poonaryn first. Our aim should be maximum damage not political headquarters. If we take above bases first, we will silence those sheeling capabilities to Jafna, also we can surround Kili easily. What do you all think.
Also Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne is a crazy fellow, I know him as a student from Peradeniya campus!!

Moshe Dyan said...

rana,

"Our aim should be maximum damage not political headquarters."

agree.

but capturing kili (and possibly paranthan thereafter) puts ENORMOUS pressure on LTTE positions towards the WEST of A9. SLA will create a BARRIER that splits EAST of A9 from WEST of A9.

thereafter maintaining nachchikuda, poonaryn will be ALMOST impossible for the LTTE. the recent DEVASTATING SBS/RABS attack on tiger boat movements would have taught them the SERIOUS LACK OF OPTIONS even to escape!!!!!!

paranthan to EPS stretch is not at all enough to feed LTTE positions west of A9 and this stretch will be targeted by SLA MERCILESSLY after capturing kili.

i hope SLDFs will HARVEST the MAX number of tigers trapped west of A9.

AGAIN the remaining LTTE positions WEST of A9 are NOTHING compared against what they have towards the EAST of A9.

Rana said...

Moshe,

Good reply! However my point is to silence guns that are attacking 55 and 53 from Poonaryn. If we can do that 53 and 55 can move down through EP though EP is heavily mined. Then even Paranthan become helpless. We must make 55 and 53 comedown from their Muhamalei and Nagarkovil positions. Then only SLDF can stregthen attack to Kili and further down. I also think SLDF wants to take Poonaryn first but due to earth bank that was constructed delayed it. That is why SLDF has to go around Akkarayan. Even now SLDF can attack directly North towards Poonaryn while holding Kili front.
I wonder what DW thinks!

Further to the above, If we attack Kili as it is now. We will be fighting with both right and left flanks exposed to the enemy. It can maximise damaged to our forces. My worry is that.

However, Thanks for your post.

All in good time. No need to worry.

Moshe Dyan said...

"We will be fighting with flanks exposed to the enemy. It can maximise damaged to our forces."

yes.

i highlighted this b4. the broad movement of 57 and 58 until nachchikuda stopped as 57 spearheaded while 58 was more or less stuck. kili made it EVEN more attractive for 57 to move.

Norwegian Minister Solheim Told Peace in North will Emerge with Death of Terrorism Soon

Moshe Dyan said...

obviously DW knows more than he tells us and he has GOOD reasons to say no need to worry.

i respectfully dissent.

there are 2 different issues here (again!).
1. b4 capturing kili
2. after capturing kili.

LTTE presence in all those areas (west of A9) is a THREAT to NUMBER 1 but an OPPORTUNITY when it comes to NUMBER 2.

DW reported yesterday how bypassing the LTTE earth bund/trench turned a THREAT into an OPPORTUNITY. this is similar.

Who’s the Next Hindu Priest on LTTE Murder List?

Rana said...

OK, I will wait. There is one more thing. When we bomb places away from FDL, Places like VPs frequent visiting places, SLAF say it had ground info from MI. However, why we can't get accurate damage assessment from the same MI sources without delay?
How come?

Navindran said...

Looks Like Mahindha Mama wants to talk to Nowergians.
a)I thought he was convinced that a military solution will be the answer (maybe the answer for his survival
b)Maybe the bloated civil service can no longer be supported
c)The credit crises is worsening even with Paulson trying to save his former company Morgan Stanely (where he was CEO for 7 years). Suprisingly he lets Lehman Brothers fail and proposes 700 billion as rescue for the market.
d) GSP+ and other priveleges being stripped by year end.
e) A bloated armed forces and defence expediture which cannot be sustained.
f)Not more expensive capital markets to raise cash at exhobitant rates
g) Likelihood of Dwindlings remitance and Investments to Sri Lanka
h) Massive failures like Minh Air and lack of place to loot
i) People no longer willings to dump 100000 rupees for 5000, 10000 rupee intrest
j) Aid money curtailed thanks to his and families weird ideas (numerous to state) and the financial toll on former allies and their own internal problems from Marriot Hotel Bombing in Pakistan to Tainted Milk Disaster in China (13000 children in Hospital after few dying plus massive ban of china made milk products around the world including Nestle and Oreo)

I always said Mahindha is a handicap for the war effort. Guess like Bush he is another fine example of why people with no intelligence should not lead the country. Guess like Iraq now not taking centre stage in the US, In Sri Lanka the economy is going to fast blow up.

The problem became worst thanks to JRW mismanagment of the economy. He saw the tamils as clear scapegoats to his economic failures. The fact that his prime minister and other leaders were against allowing the 13 dead soldiers ceremonies to be held in colombo. The fact that they were not from colombo. The fact the he overidded them knowing very well this will cause problems.

So based on JRW logic, the next time a Sri lanka of one ethnic group kills another there should be race riots. Ironically punish the innocent and on both side the murderers are still on the loose.

Navindran said...

So is Mahinhda mama a traitor now if he ask the nowergians to negotiate peace or that only applies to Ranil. Or Mahindha mama wants to show the world he wants peace but the LTTE does not want it. Anyway the world is not stupid or generous at this junction to worry about these politicking.

Sam Perera said...

Ok Navindran is back with his baseless assumptions and hypothetical scenarios. Take this 2 cents and buy a few clues before acting the moron next time. At least learn ABC of SL politics if you want to say something useful

Rana said...

DW,
My other worry is when VP get cornered badly, he might decide to send a tincan full of C4 to Vavunia or Trico camp as a suicide mission. We know atleast they have one more tincan. Therefore our camps near FDL are in grave danger as our losses can be enormous!!

Do we have any plans agaist such a suicide attack. B'cause LTTE is quite capable of such things. VP is master of sending other people to die for him.

wijayapala said...

Corey,

"Perhaps the US and its allies can learn from our forces. Here's what a US Navy Research Professor Thomas Johnson said on what went wrong for the US in Afganistan:"

There's a big difference between Al-Qaeda/Taliban and the LTTE. Kaati told us here (or in DN) that unlike the Islamist "do it yourself" terrorists, the LTTE is highly centralized. You can't fart or wipe yourself without Fat Ass's permission. The key to victory is destroying the central command of the LTTE. This will not work for the Islamists because their central command is God.

Gringo said...

Navindran....

Judging by your posts... you seem to have zero ideas about such tact!

The great challenge facing the govt. will be to ensure that Tamil IDPs are well taken care of in the camps near Vavuniya. Unfortunately, in the past these civilians have tended to get swallowed by the system.

For example, their ability to travel outside the camps in the 1990s were highly restricted, requiring a travel pass as described by Indian journalist Nirupama Subramaniam in her book "Voices from a War Zone." Let's say that you had to travel to Colombo for something urgent. The process for getting a travel pass to Colombo would take 2-3 weeks. However, the travel pass would only be good for 14 days. Any Tamil caught without a pass could be jailed for up to 18 months without being charged under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Here are the official directions for getting a travel pass back then, as cited from Subramaniam's book. If anyone can translate the below into readable English, I'm all ears:

The Procedure Which Is Now Followed To Issue Passes In Vavuniya Division (To Enter Vavuniya, Stay In Vavuniya and Leave From Vavuniya).

For travel pass a surety is compulsory and permanent pass of the surety will be retained as surety. A photocopy of the pass duly certified will be given to the surety...

Computer pass will be issued for travel to the South with the photograph and details of the pass holder and a lodging pass for the period he has to stay will be prepared and sent to Colombo Information Technology Division and through that it will be referred to respective Police. In case of station outside Colombo, the lodging pass will be sent by fax by the OIC in charge of division. It will be referred to the relevant Police Officer by him. The person who travel with the travelling pass, after reaching his destination, should report within 24 hours to the relevant Police Station and obtain that pass. The pass, which he carried, will be kept at the Police Station. After the necessary period is over he should produce the lodging pass to the relevant Police and return before due date.

When an application is submitted for a travel pass, it will be referred to the Police where he intend to go for a report regarding person mentioned in the address given in the application and only after this, travel pass will be issued...

nisal,

I just read your poem. What do you mean by Eastern Ruhunu? From where did you get it? At a glance, the tasks Prince Gamini and Prince Kitthi had in their hands seem to be bigger than our current leaders have. However, the Eastern Province was not something we had to fight those days and it was called Digamadulla. Just a minor digression folks.

Sam Perera said...

All,

After that bombing run at LTTE "hitech" center, flow of photos from Vanni seems to have stopped. Somewhere else I swathat VOT has falled dead. Hopefully the same will happen to the band of LTTE terrorist soon.

[For the final two days in Kilinochchi we spent much time in our bunkers as the artillery and air attacks intensified in and around the town. The sound through these days was tremendous, everything would shake and the air implode as the shells landed. In the near distance we could hear the terrifying sound of helicopter gunships, firing rockets.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7630187.stm]
Dear chaps, behold the whine of LTTE loving swine. Our chaps are frying the death cult goons day and night in Killi it seems. Couldn't have happened to a nice bunch of wretched fellows, eh?
But with regards to these 'aid worker' fellows, they have tucked their tiger tails under the NGO skirt and and have now come to Army controlled areas. We need to interrogate each one of them to discover what they handed over to LTTE thugs before they left. Guilty parties should be shot for treason.

"Dear chaps, behold the whine of LTTE loving swine our chaps are frying the death cult goons day and night in Killi"

yep BIG TIME.

further exerpts...

“Day after day, the constant rumble of heavy artillery got closer and closer. Twenty-four hours a day my office, bedroom, kitchen and bunker would be shaking with the thumps of shells landing. The sensation of the approaching doom was all too real with this kind of warfare…………………………………

but as the days went by and the army approached Kilinochchi, the distant rumble of artillery rapidly escalated into a constant roar of shells raining down, in and around the town………………………………………………………….

The security situation spiralled to emergency levels; artillery and air attacks on Kilinochchi became a frequent event………

I remember one morning when an air attack happened very close to me. I managed to get into the bunker quickly and narrowly escaped being hurt. I will never forget the noise of that fighter jet, the unbelievable sound of the engine as it swooped from the sky and the explosions of the bombs dropped close by…………..

We drove through the site of a fresh air attack on the A9 road and once again saw the devastation it caused and understood what may come for Kilinochchi………………”


my concience was demanding me answers when i read the SAD part. but i found answers!!!

this article didn't create an overwhelming sadness or pity; it actually created a GREAT sense of PRIDE, THRILL & EXPECTATION.

pulverise the LTTE AT ALL COST. i don't give a damn. even IDPs have their share of support and sacrifices for their country SL. its shame that those who badly need tamil elam are not there in vanni. HOPE THEY FEEL THE PAIN.

SLAF sources say the Mig-29s have arrived in Sri Lanka and will be deployed soon.
The Mig-29 is a much sophisticated aircraft which has yet to prove itself in real combat, even though it has demonstrated superior handling compared to even the US built F-16. A few years ago, a contingent of Indian Air Force personnel surprised USAF air combat teams by beating the Americans at their own game with Mig-29s on a training course at TopGun. Nevertheless the Mig-29 has no real combat record and is of doubtful significance to the Sri Lanka's immediate needs. Additionally, the SLAF will have its own learning curve with these aircraft, while the need of the hour is for aircraft that our pilots and maintenance crews are familiar with, and which are suitable for our own unique situation.

sala salang said...

We are kept in the dark about the bloody battles going on for the past week or two.

General public should get to know the real sacrifices made by SLDF, specially SLA. Many are dieing, losing limbs, eye sight, hearing, etc... for a worthy cause.

People know that fights are raging, but they don't feel it from inside, from their heart.

These details can not be exposed due to the political vultures lurking in the shadows.

I just hope that these men will not be forgotten when this war is over, not by the authorities, but by the public.

Stories about our generation of valiant sons of Mother Lanka should be taught to every school kid.

This is the best opertunity to bring up the 'Nation before self' attitude which will be the only way to develop this country.

Boss,

MIG 29 is very sophisticated fighter aircraft for air to air defence. It can attack ground targets also depending on which model we got. It deliver nasty guided missiles from 60-200km range. Even without bombing, if it fly at very low altitude that is enough to make tigers shit in the pants. Though there are unanswered questions about MIG 29 as you pinted out, I have my confidence on SLAF for their nowladge and experience on MIGs.

shay said...

Apino,

I shall try to answer your questions.

"Few questions:
a) Is it the first time SLAF did a night bombing raid in the recent past ( I mean not just blind drops)?"

No its not the first time. They have been conducting more night attacks recently and also early morning (when its still quite dark).

"b) Does this mean we have acquired night flying capabilities?"

We always had night "flying" capabilities as anyone living near Ratmalana will confirm from the noise of the transports coming in. Night "bombing" is another matter. The Mi-24/35 have FLIR which allows them to operate at night (even though the latest Mi-35M which is specially suited for night attack might not have arrived yet). With the jets the pilots can use NVG's and flares to acquire and bomb targets at night, but this is not particularly effective. To be effective at night you would need targeting pods which allow IR imaging etc. Since they seem to have been making more precision attacks recently its possible they have acquired some new targeting pods, there was some talk of getting LANTIRN or similar pods for the Kfir's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LANTIRN

"c) Are the Mig 29's in action already?"

Yet to be confirmed.

Defencewire said...

rana,

This is because if the target is taken, there is no point risking your sources in inspecting it right away when LTTE cordons off the area.

Three locations thought to be hiding VP were bombed within the last week. Most attacks were by lazer-guided bombs.

apino,
Everyone wants to bet on the winning horse. This is the bottomline!

Defencewire said...

sam,
It is done.

A quick update on the situation. The LTTE did not attack last night as expected but the buildup continues. Tonight or tomorrow morning could be a possibility.

Panhinda said...

Tamil Guardian was at one time owned by Jayadevan. It was later forcefully taken over by LTTE. TG editorial accurately reflect current LTTE thinking.

The importance of standing firm and united on Tamil Eelam

..Thus, the second and most important lesson for the Tamils from the successful freedom struggles of the recent past, is to stand united behind a single goal: an independent Tamil Eelam. Being flexible on the right to self-determination does not impress powerful states and find favour with them, it only breeds contempt for us. Being 'reasonable' and prepared to compromise will count for nothing as these states, including the liberal democracies of the West will not stand up for principles of popular will, democracy, justice and so on - unless it suits their strategic interests.

Slightly different topic.

Has anyone seen this. Documentary of the SLN Arrow boats. Shows the boats firing, looks fairly stable for a boat that small.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiBfuUDU_V4

Check out 8.40 to 8.42. It looks like a large gun boat under construction. Is that a SLN yard or is that somewhere else?? If the SLN can build gun boats by themselves that would be awesome.

Apino said...

Dear DW,

You are right...about betting and winning horses.

But this Joe will always bet on one horse ...so to speak ...that would be SLDF...

This is a free world...others are welcome to bet on any horse, tiger, primate, humanoid etc....or even mythical beings and Cryptids.

Dear Black Panther,

Thanks mate...but I really meant it when I say "may you find peace"....

One should first find peace with oneself....then with others....

All this sloshing ( remember the old proverb about the half filled Kalagediaya???) and thrashing about is a direct result of "them" not having inner peace....

Now now don't get the wrong Idea that I'm an enlightened being...but at least I know I'm NOT.

shay said...

Hi Apino,

Yes, CDL does still build FAC's for the SLN. The work horse of the SLN FAC fleet is the CDL built UFAC III's, which everyone just refers to as Dvoras. They are similar to Dvoras/Shaldag.

However the one shown under construction was a large gunboat (much bigger than FAC's), similar to Shanghai II/Ranasiri or Lushun class. These have never been built at CDL as far as I know, certainly not in recent times. I couldn't hear out what exactly he was saying and whether they were being repaired or built (and by SLN or CDL).

Dont worry about the our superior individuals. They will talk more bullshit as they get more desparate in the next few months.

nemesis said...

Apino & Shay,

Bollocks to the so called "Superior Intellect" let the poor chaps bugger off!!

you are right, the CDL used to and still do make FAC's for the SLN, But the one in question in the video is a Shanghai/ransiri Class FGB, The slip way it is shown on could have been at Colombo, galle or even Trinco. Our boys do a great job keeping those old faithful rust buckets going, much like the airmen who kept the SF-260’s running. But the boat yard which makes the arrows also make the MKII IPC, which mounts either the formidable shredder - twin 14.5mm HMGs in a naval mount or a beastly 23mm ZU Cannon along with some good old 12.7mm HMG's/ 40mm AGL's & PKMS.

Cheers

Hey..Hey,last time I heard you scolding someone as they had taken the humanitarian mission as a rasist one,but now seems to me Kaavalan is VP's Bitch!

Dude, Im telling you looking at military history, do you know that when the US got involved in the 2nd world war, great expectation was given on there military capabilities, but unfortunately it was a flop as the german's were tactically advanced, the commandership was given to a Bradly guy, he did not get scared at any tactic the german threw against him, he sheerly overthrew the germans read this, out of numbers because of "NUMBER" of soldiers in the battlefield, he lost allot of soldiers but he beet the British to take over the whole of Africa and south Italy in a matter of months.

The LTTE's demise will be because of the lack of man power, equipment to fight a war,the moral is down to the dogs, learn through history man..

It is not always easy to destroy their full capability by SLAF attack. still significant damage can be done. Moreover, long range multibarrel and artilary attacks can also do the same damage. I am sure field comanders must be doing that now. This is how SLDF targeted Bhanu last night by rockets.

Thanks

Dear Shay & Nemsis,

Thanks for validating my vague memory... about the CDL's work...and for the additional info provided.

For me mate any gun boat is Dvora...on a lighter note ....hell if Ikka Athas can make mistakes, well then I sure can too...LOL....

I have always been a proponent of local solutions to local problems concept.....and I'm really happy to hear the recent strides made by SLN in developing these crafts...

I only hope SLAF too will make similar efforts. I'm not talking about big stuff like fighters and bombers....but at least UAVs.

Well if I'm not mistaken, Israelis were the first to build and operate UAV's in real combat...that's a samll country too. And the US took it from there...now we have the Predetors that are expected to make the manned flights redundent.

If only we can break the self imposed mental barriers.

Like I said, its good to sea these developments....

Cheers all.

Brilliant speech by the SL President at the UN:

http://www.asiantribune.com/?q=node/13384

Oh, by the way, for those who did not see this, let me include this one last time:

What is Really Happening in Sri Lanka Today?
A blood-thirsty racist group led by a group of Tamils called the LTTE is terrorizing against the Government of Sri Lanka and its people, irrespective of their ethnicity, with a purported intention of carving out a separate state that they can ‘govern’ according to their whims.
The truth is there is no conflict as such between the Sinhalese and Tamil communities in Sri Lanka. In fact, the majority of the Tamil community (which consists of 18% of the total population), live in peace and harmony among the Sinhalese (74%) and the Muslims (7%) throughout the country, apart from the Northern part of Sri Lanka.
The entire Sinhalese and the Muslims population that used to live in the Northern areas for centuries were either killed or chased away by the LTTE. At the moment, not a single Sinhalese or Muslim is able to live freely in Jaffna due to the fear of being killed in one of the ever-frequent ‘ethnic cleansing’ rampages by these terrorists.
However, many thousands of Tamils are living in Colombo in peace with the other communities. Based on 2001 census, the Tamil population in Colombo district is 12.1% (see 2001 census).
So, who is discriminated? The Tamils, or, the Sinhalese? Do you need more evidence?

Sri Lanka:
According to the 2001 census ( http://www.statistics.gov.lk/index.asp ):
• Population: 19.7 million
• Sinhalese population: 74%
o Sri Lankan Tamils (not including the Northern Province): 4.3%
o Indian Tamils (not including the Northern Province): 5.1%
• Estimated total Tamil population (including the Northern Province): 18%
• Muslim (Moor and Malay) population: 7.0%
• Others (Burgher etc.): 1%
• Sinhalese and Muslims currently living in the Northern Province: 0%
• Tamil population living in the South: 12.1%

Can this war be a well calculated withdrawal plan from LTTE side. That mean LTTE withdraw, while we are attacking, until we finish our money in our government treasury? Because even if government can corner the LTTE, they can still hide themselves among civilians and escape. So they can buy time as much as they want..

It is going to be an interesting future... But at the end if north settle down to a provincial council unit like East. It is no matter who comes to power in Eastern or North those two chief ministers are going to be the government most loyal ministers. That is given that weapon used by ltte would still hang around every corner of these two provinces..

Just the my view point :-)
