Colonel Alexander Rutskoy was a former Russian Air Force pilot who participated in the Afghan war in the 80s. While carrying out missions against Afghan Mujahedeen, he was shot down by a Pakistan Air Force F-16 in August 1988, as the Russian Colonel's SU-25 jet intruded into Pakistan airspace. He ejected from his stricken jet and was captured by Pakistani troops. Rutskoy was later returned to Russia where he was treated like a hero and eventually selected to become Russian Vice President. Some 30 years later, history repeats it 'self as an Indian Air Force pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman ends up with similar circumstances. Shot down over Pakistan, captured then returned to India where he is awarded a medal and seen as a hero.
Could he also become India's future President or PM.

Getting shot down by an F16 sure has its perks and benefits as well. People feel honored to have been shot down by this platform.

Pakistan has been overslaying and it has over-achieved since it's creation.

1948 (Despite being outnumbered 20m vs 500m) Pakistan managed to wrestle away from India a territory larger then Austria that my friend is what an overahiever looks like.
1965 (Pakistan didn't only shout down the Indian offense but in a move of genius managed to invade India in counter-attack surprising the Indians completely and utterly)
Soviet-Afghan hybrid war (Collapse of Soviet union)
Nato-Afghan hybrid war
2019 ( This has humbled India and bursted their bubble because at that time they were going thru a ridiculous uprising febuary 27 has planted the Indians down to the ground

Even the fighters it shoots down are now becoming vice presidents, presidents and heroes

Most Pakistanis think he was shot down by a JF17.
That rare moment when you see Indian flag on Pakistani F-16s. :cool:

Goddamn anyone else with that type of CV would have gone bunkers and become cocky but not Pakistan it is just a daily job and nothing special.. The humility in Pakistan is admirable they don't admire achievements but life continues where the focus switch towards the present... The dice keeps rolling

Despite all the Pakistani bravado and abuse on us indians, all Pakistanis worth their salt know (in their hearts) that the only weapons that are saving them from full fledged war & massive defeat are your nuclear weapons.

Hide behind nuclear weapons, but act as if earth had never seen a warriors like pak forces.

Had Germany/ Japan had nuclear weapons, they would never have got defeated in WWII.

Pre WWII Germany had many achievements, not sure what pakistan had to show other than distorting their own history and lying to themselves.

PS1: Pakistanis on PDF are becoming increasingly obnoxious. Maybe, that is all they have to show in modern world.
PS2: If Chinese make all these claims and more, I give it to them as they have credible achievements in the last 45 years. But Pakistanis making boastful claims? I pity them.
We had three full fledged wars and one high intensity conflict (99) ,Your forces couldn't subdue present day Pakistan in any 4 of them.

PS3: maybe, for good news starved nation, the great accomplishment of shooting down a 1960 aircraft (whose pilot is courageous enough to engage discarding his own safety) is worthy of discussion & jubilation for the next 100 years. Keep it up.

We understand your takleef.....

I mean yes i know they teach distorted history at Indian schools and Abhinandan is a super hero who shot down F16 by farting so he deserves a vir chakra but seriously dude, Pakistan and India have fought 3 wars before Pakistan became a nuclear power.

You tried many times and still are be it nukes or no nukes Pakistan has stood its feet and knocked indian aggression down.

And I pity indians who are being brainwashed to think Pakistan is starving but forget that Pakistan has a better ranking on World Hunger Index than india 😆
