Details :

Flight Lieutenant Arvind Rutuparna Vaidya (6581) Technical/Armament while serving as the armament officer in a bomber squadron has designed and fabricated a number of armament test rigs, circuit testers and modifications. With the help of the test rig and the circuit tester the bombing circuit can be functionally tested even after bombs have been loaded in the aircraft. This device has greatly enhanced the operational potential of the bomber squadron in ensuring eliminating of hang-ups or faulty release of bombs.
