Ultimately usa china decided to give up and devlope dual pulse engines rockets PL15& AIM120D-260 that have more range then meteor but still inferior as indians dont believe it
Meteor is superior to both PL-15 and AIM-120D as per one of world's best military think tank:

Yes, but even right now China is developing something better then PL-15. They have the budget and scientific skills to win this race in the longer run. If J-20s are carrying PL-15 now, in 10 years they will have something new.

Also worth noting IAF's reserves of Meteor will be limited and only carried by 36 planes. PLAAF will have massive amounts of PL-15s carried by 600+ fighters.....

Greece just signed up for 18 Rafales, weapons and 5 years worth of support for just $3 Billion. Makes you think how badly France screwed India for 36 planes at $10.5 Billion....

Complex missions were conducted.
Best part is Large Force engagement (LFE) were simulated in exercise in which two pairs of Rafales proved their mettle by neutralizing an entire enemy Offensive Counter-Air (OCA) package (16 fighter jets).

NOW DON'T GO RAPING THESE PRETTY WHITE BOYS IN YOUR COUNTRY!!!!!
Meteor has turned to be not a game changer but infact it changed the entire world of BVR combat. It is similar to how jet engine discovery impacted world of air combat.
Yeah why not just call it a mini ICBM. Like those mini AWACS you used to boast about.

Do you even read, bruh?:lol:

Your own link states only 6 out of 18 Greek Rafales will be new ones whereas the remaining 12 will be second hand old Rafales fron existing French AF inventory.

Even so, the French ones will be relatively new. Qatar got 36 Rafales for $8 billion. A whopping $2.5 Billion less than India and we can both be certain they would of got a similar weapons/training package to India and bought the best. Do you even read "bruh"!?

Rafale deal was worth €7.87 billion or $9.4 billion

Of which India specific enhancements were worth £1.3 billion:

Only enhancement on Qatari jets was the HMDS.

The second hand French Rafales for Greece will be of the previous F1 & F2 standard which means minimum 8 year old frames as F2 production ended in early 2013.

So half the price of a new F3R.

Noone cares about some think tank sitting in the basement
