Good book with a few caveats but overall good. Read it in '99 or 2000 I think.read this book last year
"Psyche of the Pakistan Air Force" by Pushpindar Singh
states that after landing of F-16 in the subcontinent Indian air force end up buying Mig-29, Mirage 2000, Su-30, and is still unable to gain an edge in air superiority.
and now Rafales. soon mantra of rafales will be over just like Su-30MKI.
the perception that the maximum range of meteor will be used by IAF to gain an advantage is wrong. future engagement will be closer than expected only tactics will be the true definition of superiority.
The side with the most jamming resistant network centric system, efficient chain of command and quick action on information/intelligence will come on top; regardless of Meteor , Brahmos, PLs, AIM 120s. Publicly available info suggests PAF is ahead in this.
