Being able to buy new expensive toys doesn't mean you can use them better. Yes we have history to proof. We have beaten better quality planes with lower quality planes over and over again. We have great history where we have pilots like MM Alam and several others. So please if you don't know things then better go and learn.
Excuse me? MM Alam is a terrible example. During that war, Pakistan had slightly advanced if not equal jet to India. It also was the era of dogfight which is almost extinct now due to the prevalence of BVR, AESA and stealth.
Would request again to stop deluding yourself by these feel good stories. You cannot beat a lambo sitting in a mehran, a product has limitations.

The jets he shot down were far superior then his own jet. He shot down hunters who are far superior. You can buy expensive toys if you money that doesn't mean you can operate and utilize them well specially in war. German has 200 EF only 4 are in flying condition. If today Germany goes to war trust they would be all out in few hours. I can give you several other examples

Sounds like this website would give totally bias free and accurate assessments of Russian military equipment.

Why is everyone ignoring the fact that one Rafale fighter costs $120 million, whereas a SU-35 is closer to $80 million ? Realistically upgrading the SU-35 platform with less than $10 million a unit will make it more than a match for the Rafale.

The author is talking about BARS radar while the SU-35 has IRBIS radar with LPI .. whitch makes the article still much less credible..

Not true. The life cycle cost of su platform is higher than rafael. For example engine life su is much lower than rafael.

Su is technologically inferrior there is no doubt about it ... But it does not mean that rafael will always come on top of su35 and no other aircraft can take over on rafael ...

Egypt / UAE used Rafales to hit Watiya airbase as a warning to Turkey. They destroyed several Turkish air defense units. They must have either flown low or used their electronic warfare suite to hit those positions.

to hit old HAWK-XXI medium range air defense unit in Al Watiya airbase is not difficult

Turkish UCAVs destroyed Russian made PANTSIR air defense units in Al Watiya airbase
and GNA captured Al Watiya airbase from LNA



Turkey bought S400 Air Defense Systems to turn Rafales into crap of metal

btw if Rafale has SPECTRA EW suite , Turkish F-16s have SPEWS-II EW suite
also Turkish KORAL and REDET Radar Electronic Warfare Systems to jam hostile Radars from 150-200 km away
also Turkish HAVASOJ airborne stand off jammer is on the way to jam hostile Radars from 400 km away


Turkey is one of top 5 countries in the world for electronic warfare technology

That’s interest regarding Spectra jamming SUs.

Now this begs the question about the rest of Russian and Chinese Air Fleet.

@Windjammer @Raider 21

How well would JF-17 Suites be able to handle this considering we’re taking off the shelf Chinese equipment.
Conversely,
It seems anyone can Jam the SU.

We know the Wizards did a good job,.
