Why did the IAF leadership send Mig 21's against F16's and JF17's?
Are they stupid or did the SU30's and Mirage pilots refused to fly against JF17's?
by the way, finally, you admitted that JF17's is a top-notch fighting machine.







Yes, in an air skirmish which lasted for 15 minutes and PAF pitted 24 F-16s and Jf17s against 8 Indian aircraft of which 4 were Mig21s. @Windjammer

So apparently, the mig 21 that was shot down may have been an old air frame, but the tech inside of it was actually superior to Pakistan's older f-16s.

Of course take this with a grain of salt, as no proof of this being true actually exists. I heard this claim from an interview with an retired Indian Air force guy, as well as from an analyst and christine fair, so feel free to ignore it.
