Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

When Kargil war happened, the US refused spares for the sea king helicopters. The helicopters had to sit out the entire war. Is this the kind of support we are talking here?

Looking at the picture, the booster seems to be only for land based launches. Does this mean in a2a, booster is not required and aircraft speed is enough to ignite the engines? This should mean the minimum speed to ignite is less than the aircraft stall speed.
