IHJ was not able to fly, Arjun had ITS weakness, kaveri, INSAS etc etc. Even Abhi was shot down because the communication was jammed. Why did he not have jamproof com.? Because some promise from PSU, to make IT.
I am not sure of Wing Commander shot down due to communication Jam, that was the Paki story- they couldn't say he was on their side of LOC and brought down F-16 could they. They brought the communication Jam story out so they could say he was on their side of LOC by mistake.
Nowhere does Squandron leader Minty Agarwal, ACM Dhanoa, AM Harikumar Chandrasekharan mention this while they do mention of about multiple Amraam firings, Amraam being better etc.
The Pakistanis brought out the story otherwise people were asking why were the MIg 21 Bison on their side of LOC - they couldn't admit it was surprise attack on their F-16 so put of the communication Jam story.
If you see the various interviews and radar picture - there 6 F-16's and 2 JF -17 , 2 JF 17 having released MK 83 bombs and 1 f16 dropped a LGB, the other F-16's were firing Amraam shots at the SU-30 so that they could continue more attacks till they hit our Army targets.
Wing Commander Abhinandan and Squadron leader Vyas knew the risks but the took it and made Swift Retort to Swift retreat and see Pakistan Army panicked and started getting on the roads of Sialkot- Mirpur road since the PAF had retreated. They did since the PAF had promised they would hit the Indian Army targets causing casualties and possible retaliation from the IAF, they didnt know the PAF had 11 misses that day including 4 H-4 missiles and 1 LGB.
