You seem to latch on to one line of one post amd then get going. Have you bothered to read my other posts where I have laid down all the factors? Doesn’t seem so.Again, unless you were flying SU-30s with the IAF on that day you have no idea what happened. SU-30s were lucky to not have been shot down (by PAF accounts one was). New BVRs on SU-30? Fully integrated yet? New ball game?
Here is some news, the "ball game" did not just involve missiles, if IAF genuinely believes one piece of equipment will change the game then they are very stupid. I personally do not think they are stupid,
Did I say already integrated? The work is on.
Because at that time IAF didn’t have secure communications. I have accepted that this was a glaring IAF deficiency. That has been addressed and already integrated in quite a few aircraft . Not all of them yet.PAF blinded the IAF, jammed it's comms then attacked.
Meteor not in service ? I hear that it is already available with Rafale. The pilots have been under training for more than a year now and multiple exercises have been done to validate the Rafale as a package. If a similar skirmish takes place I am sure that PAF wouldn’t take your word on this and would be working to address Meteor.If you asked any outside observer they would probably back the PAF to come out in top if we went to war again tomorrow (especially as Rafale not really fully ready and Meteor nowhere near being in service).
I have tried to bring out the areas where PAF had an edge on that fateful day, what IAF lacked and what steps have been taken to address those shortfalls.The post seems more full of nationalistic pride and optimism rather than any value, other than actually making you "feel nice about it".
Don’t need any certificate from someone who unilaterally things that PAF has only good and nothing bad or wrong.
I actually do feel nice about latest inductions and upgradations in the IAF. Why shouldn’t I?
