Yup, they are Equivalent to P3C's. and Definately not for aerobatics. Navy learned it the hard way when they lost 2 IL 38's while performaing aerobatics few years ago on Goa.

Based in Goa and Arkonnam.

Sorry I have no Info abt that. If it was operated by IAF i would have definately known. Maybe BSF or ARC may be operating.
