      No the point was, that I calculated external fuel tanks and a heavy strike load, but EF only with 1 fuel tank, Gripen with 2, Rafale even with 3.
      In this case Gripen has the same total fuel as the EF, Rafale instead has nearly 35% more fuel than both, so by logic should offer clearly more range than the EF and Gripen should be the 2nd because of less weight. But when you look at the figures, they are very close to each other, that's what's surprises me.

      Hi, based on your calculations of the LCA fuel fractions, I made some on my own for the MMRCA contenders, but I find it difficult to understand what they really say about the range, so maybe you can help me out.

      I made calculations for them with a normal A2A load (1 x fuel tank and 6 x AAMs) and the heaviest PGM strike load (2 x 2000lb PGMs and fuel tanks depending on the available stations) and especially the latter was surprising for me, because I expected a bigger difference.

      For the A2G example:

      Rafale - 0.46 with internal and 3 external fuel tanks (9.5t fuel)
      EF - 0.43 with internal and 1 external fuel tank (5.8t fuel)
      Gripen - 0.41 with internal and 2 external fuel tanks (6.1t fuel)

      When you look at it like this, the difference is very low, but by logic, a twin engine EF, can't have a similar range as a Rafale with clearly more fuel, or an single engine Gripen right? So what does these fuel fraction really tells us?

      Regards, Sancho

      P.S. You can sent me a PM if you want.

      @blackops No I have not, I was present on excercises with Singaporean soldiers though

      @Royan Thanks for invitation, I'll check it.

      @fox There is a good article about Sayeret Matkal on Wikipedia, listing many operations. I cant add much. If you have more specific question I could search info.
