We're well aware of your capabilities. That's why our AF crossed the Indo-Pak border successfully by jamming your surveillance systems and bombed the hell out of JEM camp and thereafter returned to its home base without even getting a single scratch on its back. IAF dominated your airspace for over 20 minutes.
Result of Feb 26 operation: PA closed the site for 43 days. Even journalist from Reuters were not allowed to visit the site

If your performance is worst during aerial combat, then how you'll perform on real time conflict?

Can we add neutral sources to this :

Two Reuters reporters visited the site of the bombings, and reported the existence of four large craters, and were able to confirm that 15 pine trees had been splintered by the blasts. This is believed to have provided Pakistan with the grounds to bring charges of eco-terrorism against India before the UN.

The Independent later speculated that the Indian adventure into Pakistan might owe more to the imagination than military success. The “300-400 terrorists” supposedly eliminated by the Israeli-manufactured and Israeli-supplied GPS-guided bombs may turn out to be little more than rocks and trees.

The Reuters report says, “On the wooded slopes above Jaba [near Balakot], villagers pointed to four bomb craters and some splintered pine trees, but could see little from the series of explosions that blasted them awake at around 3.00 a.m.”

The BBC also interviewed an eyewitness who claimed that one person had been injured

Indian Air Force (IAF) is set to conduct the Vayushakti-2022 military drill at Pokhran field firing range in Rajasthan next month.

According to The Times of India (TOI) report, a meeting between IAF and the local administration was held recently as part of the preparations for the exercise.

The exercise is expected to involve 140 aircraft, including 100 fighter jets.

The exercise was previously scheduled for this month. However, it is now slated for 5 March 2022.

Vayushakti-2022 will involve a variety of operations such as counter airstrike, defensive counter-air, offensive counter-air, and other demonstrations. It is expected to be attended by Indian President Ramnath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Preparations for the exercise are currently underway with fighter jets honing target-hitting skills, official sources told the publication.

The sources further told TOI that a variety of missiles will be demonstrated during the event.

Drill participants may include Rafale planes equipped with MICA IR/RF missiles, SU-30 MKI, MiG29 UPG, LCA Tejas, Mirage 2000 jets among others
IAF’s Apache, Chinook and Dhruv helicopters will participate in certain activities during the night.

The Vayushakti war exercise is conducted every three years.

Last year, India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and IAF tested the indigenously developed Long-Range Bomb (LRB).

The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) later said that the test fulfilled all the mission objectives.
Dekh lena kahin ponch pe paon na ajae IAF ki.

Where are the Meteors? Not once has an Indian Rafale been seen with Meteors. Do you even have them? IIRC there is no record of a Meteor shipment to India.
That paragraph you are quoting was written by a private journalist with poor defence knowledge. He probably does not even know about Meteors.

Anyways IAF Rafales have been spotted with Meteors

Rafale to setup a parallel production facility at the vast joint venture in Nagpur. Capacity to produce 24 rafale fighters per year. Besides this the facility will produce components for all international rafale orders. Ambani owns 51% share and Dassault owns 49%. Its the only way Rafale and India can keep pace with the order book.

I mean we have to think about the health of Bajwa and Qureshi. The poor guy was sweating profusely and his knees were knocking.
Any retaliatory strike and he would die from a heart attack and Qureshi would be clinging to Biden's ankles pleading with him to stop those nasty Indians like your PM did during Kargil.
Then it was Musharraf whose knees were trembling and forced Nawaz to beg in Washington

Even few years after Pakistan has whipped Indians 56'' Pichwara black 'blue, they have been unable to sit down to any meeting.
Bakhtoras were always talking about BAT action on the LOC....well the Chinese obliged them with CLUB on LAC. Their facial and body features got such treatment and displacing that most of them now talk from where sun don't shine.

LGB-equipped Mirage 2000 was a game changer in the Kargil War and made a big difference for India


actually no..

IAF was ineffective in it's bombing run in 1999 as it was in 2019. .. IA even less so.

You should thank Bill Clinton....

....

Nooran Shah, a farmer who lives near where two of the bombs fell, told the Guardian the doors of his mud-brick house were blown off by the explosion. “Nothing was damaged except some parts of my house and there are four big holes in the ground,” he said by phone.

Analysis of open-source satellite imagery has also cast doubt on India’s claims. A report by the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab was able to geolocate the site of the attack and provide a preliminary damage assessment.

It compared satellite images from the days before and after India’s strike and concluded there were only impacts in the wooded areas with no damage visible to surrounding structures. “Open source evidence suggested that the strike was unsuccessful,” said Michael Sheldon, a research associate with the group.
Separate satellite analysis by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute also concluded the that there was no evidence of damage to the hilltop facility that India claimed to have struck.

Images showing the wreckage of a warplane on the Pakistan-controlled side of the border were published by the Indian news agency ANI last week as proof that an F16 had been shot down.
Bellingcat, a forensic investigations outlet, has examined photos and videos of the wreckage and concluded it belonged to the Indian airforce MiG-21 that was shot down in Wednesday’s dogfight, leading to the capture of its pilot, Abhinandan Varthaman.

Neutral source they don’t say
