    Rafale jets are not enough to face Pakistani JF 17: Shahid Latif

    The WS15 time between overhaul is said to be nearly 400 hours, and may be less, when those of Saturn AL 31 is 1000 hours. Mirage 2000 is a short legs bird, as Mig 29. Mirage 2000 only had a decent range with MICA missile, under the main frame, allowing the use of 2 under wings tanks.

    JF17 is a cost effective solution to replace mig21. But it's main weakness is the same than Mig21 one : small range. It's just impossible for a US, a russian, a french, a chinese LIGHT fighter to have the capacity of a MEDIUM or HEAVY one. JF17 is a nice LIGHT fighter, that's all.

    Rafale jets are not enough to face Pakistani JF 17: Shahid Latif

    Yes, 36 Rafale is far too few. But at least another batch will be ordered, because IAF and the indian politic brass will never made the same mistake than with M2000 or Mig 29 : too few number. No Indonesia didn't purchase 80 birds. It's UAE ! Indonesia inked a deal for 6 (with no payment so...

    Yes and No. Yes number is also a quality. But the 36 Rafale will never be used alone to face 150 JF17. Su30, back and or higher will also be there. The last news is that no S400 was deployed in Ukraine. Nor by Ukr army or by the russian one. If you have a source....

    No need of propaganda. Rafale is the best seller except F35, and every one knows that purchasing F35 equal to purchase Uncle Sam umbrella, it's as simple as that.

    Lack of argument? As usual with an average US people, always thinking than only USA has the knowledge to built a premium weapon susyem.... Indeed. Over budget, Under specifications, Late, Seems that LM lost its talent.

    Sure. First of all : the price. Second : the F35 one breaks the neck of tiny pilot. Except speed, no one is better. need another try ? OK, let's go.

    Sensor? Rafale AESA radar was judged good enough by UAE. So good that they didn't inked a F35 deal. Emissions? hum hum.... F35 is so hot it has to open its internal bays every 15 minutes. And unable to supercruise despite a 12T dry engine means it is shape as a sugar piece : absolutely not...
