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

That will be the plan. I bet PAF is desparately begging the Turks, Jordanians - anyone from their usual ummah friends - to lend them a few F-16s "off the record" so they can repaint them and pretend all iz well. Which is why the MOD should release the F-16 shootdown info, asap. Turkey is ...

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

What does this even mean ? Doesnt make sense Usually, just detecting an aircraft on radar doesn’t mean having a ‘firing solution’. In order to have a firing solution, you need accurate azimuth, elevation and range/velocity data. Unlike ground radars, aircraft radars aren’t stationary. Also our airc...

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

See at the high speed the R-73 travels in the end zone it needs transverse/lateral pulses to do the steering as there is not enough space (v^2/R) to do the gradual turn needed for TVC. Transverse control engine is essentially a motor with lateral/divert nozzles to provide the thrust. Makes sense. T...
