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

I have been trying the find out the effectiveness of the Amrams of PAF. 1 Will they not be jammed by the Israeli EL-8222 jammers? 2 What is the Amrams no escape range? compared to the R73/R23 of IAF 3 Are the R-77 just paper tigers? 4 What is the purpose of having SU-30MKI's if they are not able to...

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

air superiority is decided over a contested air space...on 27th PAF never crossed Indian air space for even a second. they fired and fled...that was the sum of it all. their imaginary air superiority was torn to shreds moment the Mig popped up from nowhere up their sorry ass. imagine the panic and c...

I think the PAf had air superiority till additional MIG 29's and Su30MKI joined the fight and they retreated, in a one off skirmish it worked in a larger conflict it would not, PAF had the advantage of both aircraft crashing in its territory, a professional airforce would have evaluated its failure...

big defence deals are as much about politics/corruption as its about defence. In the augusta westland deal, since sonia wanted a italian chopper, the specs were altered by IAF on sonia's behest to favour augusta. So its not that IAF tweaks specs on its own will.
