So missiles and cheap directed-sensor munitions (a la Manpads like FN-16 and RBS 70) both of which may be inducted locally, will not help? I know that the FN-16 is made locally and is deployed in numbers.Based on what i see, absolutely nothing.
There is nothing the BAF can throw at the IAF that will stop a determined attack from the IAF. BAF will not only need to induct new platforms, but it will have to train its crews and harden its tactics. There are far too many gaps that need to be filled in order for BAF to mount a credible threat to the IAF. It will take decades i believe, multiple decades for the BAF to build a force that is well trained and can operate a modern Air Force that has the capability to mount counter sorties against a juggernaut such as the IAF. For now, India has absolute dominance in Air, Land and Sea in that part of the world.
What's your opinion on the Myanmar Airforce? They seem pretty decent for a country of that size.
The Indian Govt. has been very successful in neutralizing any BAF development on offensive front, other than training equipment.
