Re: Upcoming India-Pakistan War - Force Balances, Strategy, Tactics, etc.

I think it will boil down to air campaigns. There is no point in engaging in prolonged land battles.

Tejas Mk2 is done with inputs from the IAF. There are three basic points that IAF wanted from Mk2: 1. Better transonic and supersonic performance 2. Better STR 3. Better endurance payload You cannot have all of that with just a 10% increase in thrust. Hence, such an elaborate change. By the way, MW...
