    [[Media victories, military victories and realities on Tamilnet]]

    Some interesting points to note from Tamilnet`s latest report.

    [[Unidentified aircraft over Jaffna town]

    (TamilNet, Monday, 16 April 2007, 18:23 GMT)

    ``..Two weeks ago LTTE aircraft bombed the SLAF`s main airbase at Katunayake, killing three service personnel and wounding sixteen others..``]

    Now lets cast our minds to the 26th of March:

    [[Sri Lanka blackout on Air Force losses]

    (TamilNet, Monday, 26 March 2007, 22:24 GMT)

    ``..Whilst the government says only two helicopter gunships were slightly damaged, airmen coming off duty told reporters in Colombo that several SLAF jet bombers were put out of action by fierce fires which broke out in the hangars struck by the LTTE aircraft. Up to 40% of the SLAF`s strike capability has been knocked out, they said..``]

    What happened to the 40% damage to the SLAF!!.. :)

    Other occasions of brilliant frontline reporting on Tamilnet.com..

    [26 March 2007

    ``..Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have for the first time released photos of their Air-Tigers to media with Tamileelam Air Force (TAF) `FIRST MAJOR MISSION.`..``

    [August 11, 2006

    [Tiger aircraft rockets Palaly base, curfew in Jaffna]

    ``First major mission``!!.. I thought the incident on the 11 of August was the First major mission according to Tamilnet :)

    If we have any doubts about tamilnet`s technical credentials, like their ability to correctly identify aircraft types and knowledge of aircraft and aircraft munitions.. here are some other genuinely rib tickling cases of technical brilliance:

    (1)

    [``..Meanwhile, only two propeller-driven Pucara ground attack aircraft and a seaplane took off from Katunayake all day Monday.``

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21681]

    (2)

    [``Three bombs were dropped 25 meters from a class room. A bomb that hit a tree exploded in the air, wounding two children and a teacher.``

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21607]

    maybe we should send the staff at Tamilnet.com a couple of weekend passes to the SL Airforce Museum in Ratmalana, and a subscription form to Janes All the Worlds Weapons.

    EELAM AIR FORCE (really like this title) testing the SLAF defence system?

    Whoever it was, it?s a no-fly security zone and the only answer to a non-identified plane entering this zone is to get him down before he?s dropping =unidentified parcels=.

    At first sight it looks as if the SLA defence system still needs to adapt to this new threat.

    LTTEPS, Tamilnet and Sibernews air waves remain silent following todays air strike at 09:45 SL Time (05:15 GMT)

    [[SLAF fighters destroy an LTTE training facility- Mullattivu]

    ``..SLAF super sonic MIG-27 fighters, and K`fir jets pounded on an identified LTTE training facility with precision strikes at Wattappalai, south of Puthukkudiyiruppu in the un-liberated Mullativu district at 09.45a.m, today (17)..``

    Why hasn`t this been reported on tamilnet!!..

    lets analyse some recent trends in tamilnet reporting of prominent SL Air Force air strikes:

    [[61 schoolgirls killed, 129 wounded in airstrike]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=19224

    Airstrike occurs 03:00 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 04:15 GMT - delay 1 hrs]

    [[175 schoolchildren, 9 staff narrowly escape air strike on school]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21607

    Airstrike occurs 07:15 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 08:36 GMT - delay 1.5 hrs]

    [[2 killed, 4 wounded in SLAF airstrike in Mullaiththeevu]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21777

    Airstrike occurs 08:30 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 10:34 GMT - delay 2 hrs]

    All these air strikes were reported mere hours after they happened!!..

    Lets also observe the associated time delays with less prominent air strikes as reported on tamilnet:

    [[SLAF bombs Vadamaraadchi East villages]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21795

    Airstrike occurs 08:30 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 11:09 GMT - delay 2.5 hrs]

    [[SLAF bombs civilian area in Vanni]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21408

    Airstrike occurs 04:00 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 07:50 GMT - delay 4 hrs]

    [[SLAF airstrike kills 2 in Vanni]

    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=21303

    Airstrike occurs 03:00 GMT, first reported on tamilnet 04:35 GMT - delay 1.5 hrs]

    Todays air strike occurred at 05:15 GMT; time now 13:30 GMT - delay 8hrs..

    A Tiger training facility is the target; A prominent target!!.. The Vanni air waves are quiet, stone quite.. too quiet!!..

    Whats happening in Mullattivu!!.. the omens don`t appear to be good..

    Roshan , it was not an aircraft as it was reported on the tamil media. It was an angel flying over to mannar to tell the bishop about the great mahinda and his visit to the vatican
