Re: Harrier vs Mirage V/III

Hmmm good one.<BR>The Harrier is more suitable for dogfights than a mirage, because the delta wing doesn't goes together with manouvrability. Adding the TV engines exhuast pipes with that, the Sea Harrier should have the edge over the mirageIII. The Mirage V which has no radar, will need to escorted...

Re: MiG-21-93 firing trials

Perhaps, but you can't expect a small fighter like the mig21 suddenly turn into an Su30. It's probable not possible to fit an bigger radar into the aircraft.<BR>Just my thoughts.<p>[This message has been edited by Skanhai (edited 08-09-1999).]

vram,<BR>Janes Fighters Antology is a better simulator in that case than F15. I have tried F15 ones or twice, but it was to much for my pc.

Re: Battle of Longewala

Just want to say this. The movie is accurate in some ways, like the name of the commanding officer: Major Kuldip Singh. <BR>Anyway I like this movie over any US movie involving aircraft cause in those movies, aircraft seem to be able to fire the same sidewinder to ground targets serverals times. <BR>

Re: Tech.Info.3/T-80UD/T-90/Arjun Mk.I

Has any large scale tank-assault been turned back only by air-power yet ? <P>Longewal??<P>I think no matter how advanced armour the T80 has, it can be panetrated by a 120mm from the T72. I'm only not sure if the T72 can fire missiles.
