Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

RAF Tornado GR4 fighter jets retiring after glorious service. They have evolved over the last 4 decades. I wonder why IAF never considered Tornado jets.

Insha Ganesha, we will see another picture of a MiG21 shooting off a CCM but this time against the Ayf Sola.

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

They had no intention of striking anything. Their only ruse was to get IAF fighters to cross the LoC and shoot them down. With that, they could show their populace that they bested the IAF.

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...
