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

UB, One thing I don't understand is how is Abhinandan with minor scratches after the AMRAAM hit the MiG-21 with a 40 lbs warhead? Is the MiG-21 structure so robust that it absorbed all shock from the explosion? Could the missile hit the MiG-21 after it flamed out and Abhi ejected? I asked this of T...

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

Wait which F16 did he shoot? The ones at 40k or the one at 15k? There is a 4 ship and a 2 ship F16 formation. Which one became the 3 ship formation we see in the radar grab?

Do pentagon/LM officials go around like Bangalore RTO cops and check chassis numbers below the windscreen? What kind of a crap job it that?

Wait, then do they do the same for all Amreki eqpt with IAF as well?

Very soon expect the PAF to put out news that an F-16 has crashed during a “training” exercise and the pilot/pilots were killed. :x . They won’t accept that it was shot down. A “crash” is how they will try to cover it up so that they can account for the lost F-16 :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: Nah.....
