Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

Chinese data is wrong (with one big spike, and rest flat). check out SK and compare it with Italy and Iran (not complete yet). I assume SK is tapered down, and does Chinese claim. I guess the general data available is with proper measures it can take 8 to 12 weeks. --- also, that report about 24 mil...

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.

Also, there was a big talk about Su30-MKI upgrade f...

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

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.
