it may not be a trade-off always! - we can't compare one loss with another, in a war declaration.

of course, chankianess is needed.. but we can't get bogged down by covid19 [anyone vulnerable to virus is anyway outside the war zone].

Re: MRCA (Many Rakshaks Choose Aircraft) Contest - Episode III

Rafale should reduce RCS by half. It could be more on the rear rather than frontal. However, on all sides, they have huge promise, but at huge price. Rafale is darn expensive.. we have got to think hard on homegrown platforms.

people give conflicting data about Rafale RCS, comparing nearly with Typhoon and SHornet.

Mirage had indeed influenced a lot of design for Tejas (LCA), and its variants. I am seeing a similar influence of inlet design for Indian MWF-4 (Mirage 4000ish) from Rafale. Something unique about Rafale, and it is near stealth with frontal RCS. AMCA designs will look at it with deep respect. https...

OT, but functionally relevant on Sandeep Unnithan's article above^^^.

Converting MKI to Super 30 will not avoid an AMRAAM, but focusing on purely stealth skins, towed decoys and reducing RCS will. It applies to Tejas/AMCA too.
