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

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

The f16 is said to have taken shots from 40-50km... even if the sukhois had the r27 instead of the r77 they could have fired back. Even the mirages were said to be locked on and did not retaliate. Perhaps the cap were only cleared for wvr and equipped only for that?

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

That Hukum chap on twitter has the info spot on since yesterday.... The mki were indeed governed by the Netra/roe but successfully countered amraam and made it lose lock and slam into the ground. The porkis appear to have caught us by surprise with roe violation and amraam targeting.

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

Yes but MKI not firing R-77 R-27 at multiple bogies respecting ROE is also significant. I was toeing the ROE line a few pages upthread but this new information is a little confusing. If an amraam is fired at you, should the roe not be to let the bars do its work and kill a few vipers. Or were the c...

The su-30s can swat down the solahs whenever they want... this has been shown in many exercises.
