JF17 can probably squat Rafael even when later is equipped with Meteor. Well within realm of possibility.Focusing on a single platform would be better for the EAF. Rather than buying dozens of different types of platforms.
Then there is the question what good are 100 Rafales when they are not even equipped with Meteor missiles? in such a scenario the JF17s would squat the rafales out the sky with their PL-12/PL-15s.
