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

Besides, the F-16 that brought WC Abhi down fired its AMRAAM from less than 10km distance. Very close.


Isint that range like 10 sec warning and 100% no escape ? how did he manage to get in that position? did he not have an onboard radar or at least warned by other AWACS?
