This reverse engineering is for Chinese H&D only. The Russians have equal or more control over the Chinese flankers. Only the LCA Tejas Teams we can have the control we want.

And Further, Astra Mk2 will take a few years to Develop, so having the Ability to fire Meteor should not mean end of the road to Astra MK2. Which any way will be integrated with SU-30 MKI and hopefully Rafale also.
