PL-15E range at 145km , not sure under which conditions like altitude, speed, hot or cold aspect target etc. but some ppl on this forum (fanboys) were claiming this was some kind of silver bullet death star with 250km-300km range.

The choice of word means Bangladesh Air Guard is not a good planner and certainly not a good executioner of a plan.

Meanwhile, Dhaka Tribune will no longer publish crappy articles from Ash Rahman aka Ashiqur Rahman aka Dr Mahmud Rafiq.

Editor Zafar Sobhan might be receiving a lot of complaint about those unsolicited articles about Babcock international, Fincantieri and BAE Systems. Ashiqur Rahman might be going to jail for identifying himself as an agent of Babcock international, Fincantieri and BAE Systems.

You get all that from a word.... and what is the source of your post?

The above is pure conjecture and speculation. Dude, you just out-Amra'd Amra when talking about Amra!

Nearly 2022 and still no deal for MRCA.

BD got its as* handed to it back in 2017 when nearly 1 million Rohingyas were expelled to it.

Seems like a country that has little diginity here to me as BD with a GDP of 5 times that of Myanmar should be able to impose it's will on it with ease.

I hope at least in 2023 there will be BD Airshow. While in the process of waiting, BD government has an excuse to delay the MRCA deal until 2023 :D

I dont think they have never needed an actual excuse for delaying things..... their ineptitude has always been enough.

^^ Based on what I personally heard before, the below from Defseca may be correct on this occasion.
We've never lost a contract to a competitor - Lockheed.

it looks like lockheed martin representatives paid a visit to then Air chief in Sep 3rd 2019. Maybe it corresponds with your sources . He is a senior project manager at Lockheed.

Before this , he met the Italian Representative on the 25th of July. An offer could have been made (resisting the urge to make an italian mafia joke here)

I need further confirmation to actually believe:

Guys, none of us have ANY insider information and so best not to claim otherwise.

It is end of 2021 and going into 2022 and still no contract signed. It takes 18-24 months before the first planes are delivered and so the earliest delivery if order made this year is 2023.

At this stage I would not be surprised if BD actually has given up on having a competent airforce this decade and the blame lies squarely on the BAL government, as they can dismiss the leadership of the BAF at their leisure and appoint new more capable leaders.

As long as we have BAL leadership in charge, they are a proxy for India.

India will never want us to have air defense (or offense) capability. Period.

Bangladesh is a perfect vassal state to India.

Yeh Ghulami ka janzeer kabhi nahi chhutega....as long as you have an a$$ kisser party in power.

Also, we have to be in a much stronger economic position to challenge Indian status quo.

The next fighter jet order will be either F-16V or EFT.
If the government chooses to be extra accomodative, both might get ordered by 2025.

2025 ? 1 year after that you can possibly order 60 million USD 4.5 generation fighter that can be upgraded into 5 and even possibly 6 generation fighter inshaAllah......


I will keep influencing BD Gov that I believe pay attention on this site ( this is why they banning it in BD) in order to serve both long term BD and Indonesia interest...........:D
