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

If the MiG-21 will go down, or even has a chance of going down, as a result of debris ingestion from a missile strike doing it's basic job of wvr interception, then is it not fairly unsuited to the role of an interceptor based in Srinagar ?? the single engine antiquated platform of the 21 though emb...

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

Considering the transparent nature of f16, it is likely that arming an f16 with dissimilar non-nato payload (like a paki nuke is not a nato payload) other than AIM-9/120 or GBU will trigger alert in pentagon via onboard sensor that a non-approved payload has been loaded and armed. This is imperitive...

As some scenarios right here on beeaareff had speculated the F16 did a vertical high g manouver to shake off the MiG radar lock and in between this if the R73 was fired and it hit the F16 during this vertical high g manouver then debris will surely fall onto/into the chasing MiG.
