IAF to fly Sukhois at British air exercise
Which again shows your limited view on the exercise. The last exercise in India for example included RAF and IAF AWACS, because one prime focus of that exercise was to train BVR combats with AWACS support and not the dogfights you reduced it too.
The recent exercise with French Rafales, were done in different configs to train offensive strikes and protection of high value targets (AWACS and transport aircrafts that participated next to the fighters). The Garuda exercise before that, had an even bigger focus on escorts, since the MKI's specifically trained the protection of larger targets like the IL 78 tankers, but also smaller strike packages like Mirage 2000s.
So there are faaaaaar more things to learn and understand about these exercises, than just the results of dogfights, which are just one minor part of it. But if you want to degrade the fighter and fuel a certain kind of response, you can do it your way of course.
