Around 160km. PL 15 is said to be around 200km
Yes and all these ranges are very altitude specific. Given that Meteors are capable of maneuvering at the terminal stage, it is not advisable to presume that it is lesser than PL 15 by simply going with the advertised range.

Article reads like someone's wet dream. Whatever happened to all the existing inventory of BVRs that IAF had from the last 20+ yrs? Suddenly the Indians are foaming at mouth about Meteor.

RVV-SD sounds lethal, I tried researching its combat record online but could not find any.
I expanded my search to all Russian BVR missile - still nothing.

Surely, this and other lethal Russian BVR missile has many....many combat kills under its belt. Please can you provide us the details.
R-77-1 is its another name

Good to read confirmation of BVR upgrade from the chief. But why was this not paid attention to from 2010 or so when Pakistan had acquired the C5s from US?
R-77 by no means is a inferior AAM. Its just Indian habit to blame IAF incompetencies on technology.

Well done Indians, well done!!!


It was raining, gloomy here...thankyou Indians for lifting up the mood!

ShooperPauer...yeah!!!
lol exactly, weather such as rain and cloud does not effect performance of Fighter jets nor its equipments which are called "all weather capable" for a good reason. Other wise no airline would fly in cloudy weather!

Every other article to ensure Indian excuses of that so-called strike so no further questions may be asked.

On a serious note: IAF is on a well paid shopping spree without any doubt but then again, such bragging meets disappointment on occasions when occurs. Lest just say that IAF is preparing but the habit of bravado isn't going away. Hence, as long as such esteem remains; there will be less of affect into applying tactics.

Older version of R-77 is said to have only 80 KM range even as per Russian sources
IAF acquired 500 latest version back in 2011 which is same equivalent version of AMRAAM C5.

For India if they dont have advantage of at least 5 times bigger quantity and quality then its not a fair game.

for which, they excuse themselves by referring to two front war. For Pakistan, we are defending our land and have no ambition of any aggression for expansion hence, an independent yet working strategy considering the facts, resources & odds. Any advantage availed for granted with wrong execution, becomes the weakest point & exploitation.

Induction of new RVV-SD BVR missiles confirmed by IAF CAS.
RVV-SD has a range of 110 km and thus has superior range and better No escape zone than AIM-120C5.

This is great news for India, how are they dealing with PL15 with Block 3s, which has range uptill 180kms...

Ita not confirmed that AIM 120C5 has less than 110km. There are Parameters which define the range. @airomerix @Dazzler
Secondly, we are getting PL 15s which are long Range AAM( as stated by Chinese and Western sources). Their range as stated is greater than Meteor. So in Future since our BVR would be having greater range, u guys will be left with the same situation as 27 Feb i.e Outgunned by PAF
This is great news for India, how are they dealing with PL15 with Block 3s, which has range uptill 180kms...
Meteor is superior to PL-15 because it uses ramjet engine whereas PL15 still uses older tech of dual pulse engine which means not only Meteor has a superior no escape zone but it also is capable of terminal stage manuevers.

More importantly since next war is going to happen no later than Mar-Apr 2022, which means at that time PAF will have only 16 PL-15 equipped JF-17 BLK3 whereas IAF will have all 36 Rafales.

IAF acquired 500 latest version back in 2011 which is same equivalent version of AMRAAM C5.
No new type of missiles were purchased in 2011.
