There is talk about last night's event where IN P8Is escorted by SU-30s were spotted off the coast of Pakistan. I for humor suggested that perhaps it was an early Eid Gift by IN by losing a sub perhaps.

However, more I think about it more it makes me wonder as to why would IN risk P8Is to snoop on PAF and that also based on rumor of J-10P and J-15P. They likely have network of spies around Masroor with enough light weight gadgets to get better validations.

SO it leads me to believe if indeed something happened off the coast of Pak that has prompted IN to send P8Is.

Again this is just speculations, I doubt we will hear anything about it if it did, too bad there is no Public access to SOSUS picking up any underwater explosions etc.

PS: I wrote rumor as most of them will only beleave it when they have hard evidence, not because I doubt the authenticity of Kafee's report.

Sorry I didn't mean to de-rail the J-15 thread.

its good that you made a separate thread for this. Now coming to your point, there is no credible intel which would suggest that IN P8's were flying near our coastline, the purpose of these planes is to hunt for subs so does not make sense they will come close to our shores. Most of the P8's are based on the south East of India.

P8's can do a lot more than just hunt subs, just saying..

I am gong to post an old story I read on the P8 in Maritime.

Obviously PAF is not wasting precious fuel flying around in the dark for nothing. There are no exercises planned or announced.

Few possibilities come to mind.

Either Indians are watching what is happening at Masroor in terms of something totally new that we are operating.
Watching our new assets use and response time.
Lost contact with their sub surface asset.
May be Pakistanis are harassing and following their sub that required Indian intervention and the show of force.
