Indian platforms and air force are more battle experienced than chinese , this ranking consider it as a parameter(we can argue on criteria and their weight age and there can be different lists). But in this list India wins , I dont see a big fuss about it.

IAF vs PLAAF is an interesting concept. Although the rankings do not mean how good the Air Force is in Air Combat alone but overall how effective the Air Force is.

If the PLAAF's 4th (West's 5th) Gen Stealth Jets and next gen BVRAAM are as good as they say they are then PLAAF would wipe out IAF and enjoy Air Superiority in any engagement. However, if that is not the case then IAF Rafale and perhaps even the MKI can hold their own against PLAAF.

Not until India can comletely domestically make their own planes, China can churn out jets in thousands if needs be, India purchase weapons from foreign suppliers takes a lot of time, no countries can fight and win a war completely depending on foreign weapons and foreign parts.

IAF plans to cut downtime of fighter jets​

Ok you can put the rankings as anything you want. Indeed India can be a galactic hyperpower in your rankings.

I doubt the rankings were taking such things into account. There is no doubt China has no competition when it comes to manufacturing etc.

Lol, of course, India airforce is stronger and mightier than China's. They have more funds to buy foreign weapons and China has no money to spend on her military. Money talks, in the end.

Again, I doubt that too. I am sure PLAAF can afford to outspend IAF. The smartest thing that China has done is invest in its own industry which has propelled it ahead of India by leaps and bounds.

India overtook China too soon. Real game changing will happen in next 4 to 5 years shen Tejas Mk1A will arrive and Mk2 induction starts. Once AMCA arrives, India will overtake China for any foreseeable future.

Chinese are so brain washed by CPC that they believe that how can Chinese Air force be behind India? The want to be on top with J (junk) series of aircrafts with 70s and 80s technologies. Game has just begun. India has overtaken China. Withinn few years, Chinese themselves will accept that they can not match India. ORCA, MWF, AMCA are in development in beast mode. Premitive J series will be no match to Indian fighters.
