Re: MRCA (Many Rakshaks Choose Aircraft) Contest - Episode III

Old question. This was asked right at the start when many pointed out that the f15 was more capable than the 16/18 :) forgot. Think it was something to do with it being heavier without an established roadmap for the future especially given it isn't a heavily marketed fighter like the other 2.

Their precision guided shells were Israeli. I wondered if the two examples on display were them showing interest in developing a shell like the Excalibur but :( when I saw the tv screen between them running an IAI/IWI (Forgotwhich) video showcasing them.

Ballistic missile attack would be the only kind that we wouldn't have advance warning in that case.

Otherwise you would get into the range of anti-air from a chinese ...
