Where is the celebrated defence analyst's source that you promised? I'd gladly wait to see an MoD paper listing the F-16 IN as being $30 mn. See, this by itself is a good reason to not post. Just as you have one right now, and have had one all long.
Rather than posting rubbish, I'd rather not.
PS: Prastor: I'll give you credit for two things. a) You don't fear making a fool of yourself (either on BRF or other forums). b) You are willing to take criticism well for any rubbish that you post. Thanks for editing your table and making the MMRCA thread so much more valuable. Meanwhile, I will await your link to the MoD statement for $30 mn per F-16 IN. Don't forget to add the Opinion tag for any RCS values you decide to add to your table.
PPS: Hopefully, this ends the "inane conversation where I make a fool of myself" and you make a scholar of yourself.
Again, check the bottom of the post where you saw my table. Check the last date and time when the table was edited. That shows who is the fool here Marten. Clap clap!!! Also, check Kartik's response to my table and learn how corrections can be made constructively and without sounding like an ******
The title of the table clearly states that it is a "CASUAL" comparison only. And, like I said, check when it was edited, though even that edit was for the F-16IN price tag updated to match another source I found and not the title of the table.
I find your comments amusing where you talk about my posts in "other forums"
And, since you just established your lack of proper understanding of the English language, I will highlight the part of Shiv Aroor's blog entry that re-enforces my claims about the F-16 price tag. Feel free to go back to his blog and clarify again.
"Based on my personal discussions with pilots, Defence Ministry officials
and others familiar with the aircraft, here's a run down of the F-16's strengths and weaknesses in the current MMRCA competition. Remember, this is an overview of the opinion in establishment circles on the aircraft, and not merely a reiteration of facts already in the public domain."
Common sense tells that his comments that followed (that include the price of the F-16) fall under the umbrella of the above quote. Are you in mood for some more humiliation Marten?
