Re: MRCA News and Discussion

What Mr. MiG states trumps what either you or me think. MiG has stated that they cannot start work on the MRCA planes until 2013 - assuming they are selected. I have to assume that they made up their mindS knowing what you know. (Besides, my understanding was the MiG-35 is quite different than the ...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

MKI: It was considered a bad idea when the IAF mooted the idea. Even after they landed in India they were not considered to be as good as they are today. And, I would expect that the MKI would be held higher in the future. The main reason being that the growth of this plane is pushed by the IAF. An...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

First generation fourth generation ? I saw that in some other blogs as well. U.S took the lead in ASEA, Russians tried to catch up with them and they created their first generation radar.When you follow somebody else's footsteps it is not necessary that you should follow the same growth path.In tha...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

yet again i say stop comparing 1st gen AESA to a 4th gen AESA, SH's radar maturity is more than all the other radars in the competition put together. since it was introduced in 2005, it has undergone 3 upgrades with the 4th being tested. Russian defence industry cant churn at such rates. main thing...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

yes that can be done by PESA radar i wanted to say that do we need to search stealthy fighters with AESA radar on MRCA if yes these AESA radars fail us and if not the radar ranges of AESA offered with MRCA are more than adequate against non stealthy aircrafts which IAF has to deal with :D By the ti...

Just Curious...what makes you think the AESA's are for detecting stealth a/c?? That could be done by even a PESA...do you know why AESA's are preferred? yes that can be done by PESA radar i wanted to say that do we need to search stealthy fighters with AESA radar on MRCA if yes these AESA radars fa...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

5. Some radars may have 500 km range and trying for 1000km range but what i learned in my primary school is earth is round in shape. 6. Should all my planes have 200-250 km range radars.. i think 2-3 in a group of 8 need to have. i will have half of my planes(230-280 SU 30 MKI) with radars of that ...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

Migs providing to support a joint venture for making a india-genous AESA is silly.. in the sense, when we are struggling with MMR and sourcing from Israel for the doppler, when in the world we would have a workable solution for MMRCA. This is not workable, unless russia and India gets some smile fr...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

besides being late is only one major shortcoming the mig is not a truly multirole patform while others like SV, SH , Rafale, EF can pull many roles and are far superior in avionics. What are the chances of Su 30 MKI against Super Bug (Light), Super Bug (Heavy), Rafale and EF in terms of avionics? A...

Why is AESA a must? what is must are missiles which can hit their target once fired not aesa for non stealthy aircraft detection one doesn't need aesa,and what if aesa is on non stealthy fighter? and in south Asian scenario no country going to acquire stealthy aircraft any time soon and what IAF ne...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

So without good manoeuvrability and supersonic performance(sustainable with high dry thrust) having a high T/W ratio, low wing loading, the only way to counter the enemy fighter is to have the ability to pick it up early and fire the first shot yourself.The only way to do that is to have a good rad...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

well the apg-73 has max detection ranges of 300km for 5m2+ aerial target or a large ship, the track range for 1m2 target is around 100-120km. = And radar is only one area where the mig falls short, the infamous OLS on the mig is not as capable as the ATFLIR on the SH or the Sniper on the F-16IN, th...

Re: MRCA News and Discussion

well these are estimates and i am sure they are inaccurate. The APG-73 the old f-18 SH's radar has a max detection range of 300km or 160NM, the apg-79 has nearly double that range. the APG-79's track range for 1m2 is well over 150km. read the following, page 207,the apg-79 is far more relibale as w...
