I think F-7BGIs shall keep flying for this current decade.Bro you won’t have 16 fighters operational at all times
Mig 29s burn through a quarter of their fuel load on takeoff… and 4 available at any one time
if you’re talking about 36 EFT then yeah sure that’s a good level of fighters for deterrence but 16 won’t do squat.
You’ll still need single engine for interception, scramble and patrol duties
I don't care which platform is inducted, I am starting to question if there will even be any induction or we all are being given lollipop?
