Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

Slightly OT, but I don't like the way they're hyping up Rafale arrival, as if half a dozen Rafales will destroy the entire PAF and PLAAF overnight... Forget fighting in a war, tomorrow even if some small technical glitch comes in the jet, the opposition & media will magnify it beyond proportion...

Re: VayuSena Rafale: News and Discussions - 17 Oct 2016

Then it would be good, if we stop considering Rafale to participate in current conflicts with China. And focus mainly on availabilty of current fleet in air. Emergency purchase of more Su-30 MKI and Mig-29s are part of this, because IAF knows all the doctrines about these aircrafts. It has pilots tr...

After Galwan incidence, IMHO India should move towards developing ICBMs of range >10,000 kms.

No money, no honey. On a combat capability level, the airframe, sensors may be behind those on the Rafale in some ways, but the true USP of the F-16 is the amount of weapons, and mission kits it comes with. From AAMs, to LGBs, to SDBs to ARMs, to AShMs.. IMHO that's what makes it really potent. I t...
