He could be talking about local numerical superiority in certain towns or battles. But the overall ratio was 3:1 which includes 9 indian army divisions and 3 Pakistan army divisions ( I'm excluding one ad hoc division of the pak army)I gave you the proof of there not being 90k soldiers in East Pakistan. And the 50:1 advantage was a hyperbole used by your own general to highlight the numerical strength of both Pakistan and India
Trust me if they had manpads your jets would have had a really hard time. But it's surprising that you're comparing terrorists in KPK to Pak army in Kargil. There's a day and night difference between the twoAs for facing an easy enemy in waziristan...lol. They had manpads, not many but they had them.
We do the same thing at the pokhran range. The fact that india isn't using it's air force against these jiadhist groups shows how successfully we have handled insurgencies compared to Pak..
So that threat was there. On top of that, combat is combat. Whether its CAS or or aerial, combat is combat. We still have to see the jet getting airborne, flying to its target, engaging the target, and returning to base to land.
How many sorties did PAF launch in the KPK insurgency ?All of which runs the possibility of a crash. More so when in combat, due to the scale of the operation, and need of the air force to conduct CAS to destroy enemy positions before an assault or to conduct CAS to stop an assault. Unlike peacetime....

The difference is Pakistani aircrafts were built by french and Chinese which had much better quality than $hitty HAL mig21s and HAL mig27s. HAL has come a long way since thenMig21 and mig27...
Bruh Pakistan literally operates Mirage III/V as well as the F7PG (albeit that is newer).
You literally crashed 11 su30mki. And we are not even gonna talk about the jaguar, mig29 or the m2k.
About the SU 30 . India operates a 4X larger fleet of SU 30s than Pakistan operates F16s. Since 1997 a total of 11 have crashed for a total of 12 squadrons and it is the fighter which carries out maximum number of CAPs in the IAF. On the other hand Pakistanis have lost 10 F16s since 1980s for a fleet of 4 squadrons. And it's not even PAFs primary CAP aircraft that means it has to do lesser sorties than a SU30. If we factor the length of service too ( 1981-82 vs 1997-98) then the attrition rate becomes equal bro. And all the problems in SU 30s have been sorted out. It was related to some issue in HAL assembled AL 31F engines, but now HAL has managed to get QC in place and SU 30s haven't crashed since 2019 despite still being the frontline fighter of the IAF
