Indian Defense Porn Channel

It must be film night here at MIL-INT - wandering around the internet after the last posting I came across this gem - the Indian Defense Force has a YouTube channel - who knew? Well 1992 subscribers at the time of writing. The production values are borderline CNNish... ok they are hilarious - an aircraft carrier puff piece by two hyperactive body builder types who bounce around so much doing their lines I'm pretty sure they would not pass a piss test.
To a Harrier pilot "Sir, any other feeling in the world as good as flying a Harrier?"... boyish giggling ensue.... The whole thing is set to a pumping Bollywood score - its  slumdog millionaire meets top gun. Having said that it also has news clips on various items, including an Indian ASAT program! Again... Who knew? There's a great clip "on our very own drone... Just like predator"... well..... There is a high altitude warfare puff piece with their commander in a fetching white turtleneck complete with medals. Finally, there is a Agni nuclear missile test video "that can strike deep inside China" (subtle) along side a video entitled "India wants cordial ties with Pak and China". IO homerun! In fairness, many of the videos are clips from Indian TV news - and for those who have seen them, they are very smoothly produced but they don't hold back in the commentary. At. All. Makes for great viewing.
