But the point is, PAF still would be producing JF 17 III and put them in operations.
This is not happening with Tejas, that's the point he is making.

Next face off like 27 Feb 2019 "Teja Bahadur will be flying off so their pilots can taste the "Fantastic Teas"!!

Remember JF 17s were there in thick of things in Feb 2019.
Meanwhile "Teja Bahadur" were in some rusty hangers, playing softball. :sarcastic: :sarcastic:
YOu people start trolling then invite for trolling, then why are you trolling?

The only reality is that JF 17 block 1 and 2, not superior to HAL Tejas Mk1 (FOC standard) by technicaLLY.

future coming aircrafts JF 17 block3 is also not looking better than HAL Tejas MK1a by technically.

oNLY flying hours is matter most than North Korea MIG 17 should able to beat F 35,, during the war if happens.

This is the same "Sh*t" Indians talk in their videos to show how superior "Technically" Teja is compared to "JF 17".
It is odd that inferior aircraft is there in you face, when going get tough, while superior aircraft is hiding in the bunkers.

Superiority means "Jack" if you cannot fight, period.

It is like a Kid with gloves on saying to his opponent " back off I am way better than you "Technically", while hiding behind the desk.
The other kids, go around the desk and punch the hiding kid on the nose, voila knock out.

JF-17 is war proven bird while Teja aka Samosa is waiting for induction in IAF
Mig 17... Has killed the other aircrafts but jf 17 only participated in a small incident..

Means, mig 17 should be superiorsuperior by this logic.

Not sure, than what 2 hal tejas squadrans are doing..

Technically both jets are quite similar, range/ Thrust to weight ratio/ lift to drag ratio on paper Tejas has more advance features than JFT In terms avionics/radar ànd other stuff but it also on air force that how to utilize these stuff correctly in war (doctrine) I'm not saying that IAF is not having correct doctrine but in Feb 2019 JFT prove itself to deny your vastly Superior mirage 2000
Ànd every weapon systems is not 💯% foolproof

Every weapon systems have pro and cons

Jf17 has long range BVR missiles
Tejas only has medium range BVR missiles
Jf17 has a complete set of Ashm
Tejas has 0 ashm capability
Jf17 has been used in combat
Tejas has not been used in combat
Jf17 has secured orders from other nations
Tejas has not

Actually, I dragged on this useless trolling.

I agreed!! Usually, war or such incidents the country wins by better planning, execution, and support of platforms..... if platforms are better then always add more contributions.

Feb 2019, the day PAF performed better because of better tactics, planning, and execution. It also exposed many IAF Loopholes including insecure communication (older Mig 21), shortage of Awacs Aircrafts, Air to Air missile ranges etc.

Jf 17 vs Mirage 2000- it is just a story of one side.. you will believe and the other part of the side will not because usually fake claims make during the WAR just like shooting down F16 and Su 30 MKI..

There is no contract in place for spares? It makes sense to raise another mirage squadron though.
Seems like the contract may have expired. Even Dassault may find it hard to source some spares that are near obsolete because the user base for the Mirage-2000 is much smaller now that the French have begun retiring many of theirs.

Anyway, this is what has been happening to IAF's Jaguar fleet as well, with retired Jaguars sourced from France, UK and Oman to be used primarily for spares and a few being completely re-worked and put back into IAF service.

The 8 that are fly-worthy will likely be put through an overhaul at HAL Bangalore and then added to the No.9 'Wolfpack' squadron which is basically a half strength Mirage-2000 squadron.
It seems clear that IAF is not happy with the performance of Tejas so they are still investing in decades old mirages
If so, why is the PAF still buying spares and still looking around for more Mirages all over the world's junkyards?

27 feb was not the small incident but was a battle between two modern air forces who were equipped with advance avionics and BVRs, which ended on humiliation of IAF when PAF out classes out gunned them after telling them in advance be ready we are coming in which JF-17 gets the bombing job

Such incidents called smalled incident only- Such incident can win by A very small country to any other big country......... it totally depends on better tactics, planning, and execution on the day and time.

If JFT were not deny your mirages than your mirages had intercepted our JFT?? Again it BVR thingy JFT carried longer range SD-10 (100 KM RANGE) and your mirages carried MICA which has a range of 60 km range that why your mirages unable to intercept our strike pakage but you believe 24 jet along with f-16 theory

Tejas has been such a delayed and disastrous project taking so much time that India is forced into these purchases
