Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

I know MEA didn’t confirm PAF aircraft type but I think it’s safe to assume our Mig 21 Bison shot down a F-16. How many F-16s kills have been claimed by Mig 21? I think must be very rare.

I also see a LERX in the wing join. Maybe that the stub wings from the tender drawings. So the wing shape does change if ever so slightly, from double compound delta to a somewhat triple compound delta with clipped ends for wingtip CCM rails.

So if the canard is all moving but not a control canard and the FCS doesn’t control it then is it manually operated at fixed deflection angles like the LEVCONS on the NLCA?
