Lol..

Troll got stuck..keep repeating this for the next 5 days. And you'll have your answer on Feb 3.

As for the 4 new designs, who said no to that? It was you who kept saying that all this was just HAL marketing wasn't it? Or does the troll's memory fail him?

You might want to add a potential 5th design, the ORCA derivative of the TEDBF to the mix as well, which HAL is pitching to the IAF. Will make your trolling even more interesting.

OK, so guess no real answers from you. I will just state the facts again, correct me if I am wrong

1) No contract signature for LCA MK1A
4) 4 New jet designs being promised (more then US/EU/Russia combined)

No you can go.

First image of an IAF Rafale with a Scalp ALCM. Quite rare to see it on the outer pylons rather than on the inner pylon. Apparently as per French posters on another forum, French Rafales are not cleared to carry Scalp on the outermost pylons.

That is a heavy loadout, 1.3T for each SCALP, 2 2000L DT and 1 1250L Supersonic Centerline DT
~6.5T in all!

The irony of the past few posts is that they actually and truly represent the ideological mindset of two countries.

CONVERSATION TODAY:

India... "we are doing abc today, its good but not great, we are already planning to do xyz great things in the NEXT FEW YEARS"

Pakistan.... "you guys are just day dreaming, everything is delayed and over promised, your country has so many problems, poverty, etc etc"

...... THOSE NEXT FEW YEARS PASS...

Indian economy becomes xx times greater instead of yy times of PAKISTAN's as was the case few years back,.... Some projects materialise, some get delayed and a few get rescued through JV

India moves up the value chain, climbs technology ladder, develops some previously unavailable tech and continues with its own pace

CONVERSATION AFTER THOSE FEW YEARS...

India... "we are doing abc today, its good but not great, we are already planning to do xyz great things in the NEXT FEW YEARS"

Pakistan.... "you guys are just day dreaming, everything is delayed and over promised, your country has so many problems.. , etc etc".


MEANWHILE, perceiving this as a third person watching from outside...THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES WIDENED

Quite a condescending statement, especially considering the Pakistan economy actually grew in 2020 whilst India's contracted and suffered it's worst performance since 1974, but yeah...

NO.
The french Rafale are fully opened for : SCALP under the inner pylons and 1200L external tanks on the outer OR 2000L external tanks under the inner pylons and SCALP on the outer.
The last config is now the only used in french air force (but french navy use only a config with one SCALP under the frame when used from the carrier)
