Because they’ll. WVR is not obsolete as the west would have you believe. It’s very much a major portion of training as a fighter pilot.I do not understand why you keep saying that fighters equipped with BVR weapons will fight WVR?
If you can get a radar lock and have missiles within range, then surely that is the way you fight? BD is not that small that as soon as Indian fighters come near BD it will be a WVR encounter.
Yes there will be circumstances where this is required but most fighting with modern 4+ gen planes will surely be BVR.
The way I see it this is the matchup between Rafale and J-10C:
1. Manuverabiilty - J-10C wins
2. Missile - Rafale wins
3. Electronics - Rafale wins.
I think 1. and 2. cancels each other out.
So how much superior 3. is will decide the advantage that Rafale has over J-10C.
Onto the second para, no but with the established ADIZ I’m sure Bangladesh will scramble as soon as jets take off in Indian territory
Third para, again this is not up to us, but how situations present themselves
no comment on which fighter jet is winning
Ouch that hurtsIf anything you are the one that is a Western fanboy and I seem to be more impartial here
