Dumb Indian Media as usual. I think it is more or less obvious that an Su-30MKI can defeat a F-16 . but there are not too many of them. Even if the Pakis have aircraft to shoot down the Mig 21Bis then it is a threat. We need to make sure that almost all IAF aircraft can shoot down F-16 A/B

The above article forgets 2 things

1) Pakistan had lost most of the important peaks namely" Tiger Hill" etc and were begging the US to Withdraw

2) that the NLI was decimated in Kargil and there causualties have never been reported. Nawaz sharief later stated some 2700 Paki solders had died

P Chupunkar I don't think you can compare the gulf war scenario directly and just belive some of the stuff which comes in american documentories which is pretty plain jingoistic stuff-I mean do they ever talk about the Apache not able to fire 4 of its hellfires on its left side so that they don't da...

Re: India's Air Defence Network

hey guys a stupid question but nonetheless I will ask it! How good are RWR's say if hypothetically India gets R-77M1 missiles and an SU-30MKI is locking on to F-7PG 120k's away will the RWR's of the F-7 go ringing,I mean how good are PAF RWR's and how far away should the enemy aircraft be when it is...

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

Hey while talking about ranges of A-II do not forget that Hong Kong and the bulk of China Industrial belt is about 2500Km from calcutta.So A-II could be designed once the A-III is in service to hit Chengdu,Xian Hongkong etc . lets not forget in any strike the factories of Chengdu will be very import...

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 2)

This Agni-1 missile also validates the reports during Kargil of 5 prithvi's and 1 Agni-1 being mated with nuke warheads and we were all wondering about why agni-1 was being used at that time.
also one wonders why prithvis were being tested as late as last November..

Re: Agni-I/SR: Strategic Implications (Thread 1)

Vamsee>> Actually it make sense to test Agni-II again.The army/airforce this time want only there own men(say an artilery officer) to carry out their tests and thus validate their comand and control and targeting systems.Or A MINOR IMPROVEMENT on the missile which might improve its operational effic...

Re: Information on the Admiral Gorshkov refit

What makes the forum members so sure the Russians will sell the Kuznetsov , I know the west has exaggerated Russia willingness to sell but the Russians still have pride and will not sell their most important ship to us

Re: Can IAF Mig-27s do high-altitude bombing?

while on the topic of mig-27's how about also considering what sort of air to air ability does the mig-27 has and will have after it's avionics upgrade(50 aircraft)and how good it is for dogfightng once it moves its wings into swept wing position?
