With the Srilankan army advancing further into the tiger heartland their have been the concern how far can the terrorist put on the stiff resistance they manged int he last few weeks. And they have had to turn their eyes and year to new tactics that can boost the moral of their carders.

Since this is done the Tamil tigers have carried out few air raids which are unsuccessful with the deployment of Radar systems and anti aircraft guns. The srilankan government was using chines made F7 s effectively against the tigers and initially shot one down int the past few weeks.

But the tigers have placed a great treat for the security of srilanka with these aircrafts as they can easily carry a suicide mission with one of these aircrafts filled with explosives. Some thing similar to September 11 attack on the twin towers.
