Also given the dense PLAAF air defence SAM, might require lot of SEAD jamming.
IAF could invest some effort and ask DARE to come up with a suite and prototype it on a Su30 test platform from HAL.
HAL needs to built couple of Su30 test platform to try out AESA, jammers and other kit. I don't understand why they haven't done it already.
Dare can directly deal with IAF, some BRD could modify the aircraft and this would be a faster and more economical route with IAF controlling the timelines.
what exactly would HAL bring to the table that the IAF and it's BRDs don't.
