Re: India selects Typhoon & Rafale for MMRCA shortlist - Par

Pretty much clear that MoD@GoI is not headed the F-35 way. They'v got their hands full with PAK-FGFA. Very much justified beacuse F-35 is not yet fully inducted in to service. Maybe the navy could take a call, but thats much later. Now if its L1, keeping the 9 costing parameters in mind, Rafale is a...

So if EFT is selected for IAF, then Raf might just b with the Navy, for its 2nd Aircraft carrier.

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Lovely pics..!! Although I m a die hard EF fan, there is something that makes Rafale a class apart. The reason EADS & Dassault parted ways in the Delta Canard fighter program was the fact that EADS wanted a Hard core Air Superiority Combat Aircraft. Dassault on the other hand, wanted a Fighter t...

I remember watchin "Behind Enemy Lines" where both F/A-18 pilots fall prey to SAM fire by the Russian backed Serbs.
The funny part is, Owen Wilson was flying the SH for Aerial photography of mass graves.

By the way. the Eurofighter and the Rafael, both carry the same ACX DNA. Except that size and cost being on the higher side when it comes to EF, Rafael is a ligher and much more agile/maneuverable machine due to its proven Air Carrier Landing capability. However, EF has room to add more. It depends ...
