That interview was excellent and explained to me why none of the SU30 MKI pilots got any recognition after the battle.

The evasive action of the 2 SU30's against !5! AIMs should be told and feted esp at such close ranges. Why are we not doing that? Those pilots are no less award worthy no? What am I missing?
