What could be more mythological that pakistan shot down a su-30 and that too after it crossed into pakistan airspace. That's official version.

Then there is crazy unofficial versions like Indian Su-30s were flown by Israili pilots. LOL
See now you're planting your own mythology which only what Indians are good at. Nothing to discuss factually, even if India looses a battle on the ground, they'll still come up analogies somehow they won in some way which is the reason for this argument. Case closed.

Could be - reportedly India preferred the R-27 due to issues with the R-77 versions they had purchased initially.

Due to presence of grid fins, which increases drag at the expense of maneuverability, the practical max range is actually 50KM vs the 80KM advertised. Even in Russian Air Force the missile is carried in tandem with R-27. That said, the latest variant used in the Ukraine conflict has increased performance.

What is the SD10A range compared to the R77 and R27 that Indian fields?

That is the R-77-1 which has increased performance - the trellis fins improve maneuvering off the rails but add a lot of drag.
Comparatively even though the PL-12A used the same seeker but its shape and fin style actually affords it a much better range without sacrificing too much maneuverability.

The PAF considers the PL-12B(SD-10) it fields equal to the AIM-120C-5 on the F-16s in pretty much every aspect - that is as good a compliment to give what is technically China’s first attempt at an active seeker fire and forget air to air missile

Ahh 02-27 Ahh!! What days we passed!!!!

The PAF could put tons of doubt into the RSS minds, which remain ever doubtful according to Prof Swamy, like putting tons of cow dung into the fire....

Let it be Helal for the PAF for it brings Riza and Bereket from HIM. The rest are all Fasa Fiso....

The claim is that the Su-30 was engaged within Indian Airspace at near edge of AIM-120 envelope after it was seen trying to pursue the Mirage Guidance aircraft for the H-4 weapon.
Can u read it?

Read the date and time of this tweet, he explained later that he was receiving information from various sources... It's called Fog of War.... Meanwhile on the other side of the fence, people were in such panic that they couldn't distinguish between a fast jet and a slow moving Chopper... That too in their own back yard. Even Indian media after giving breaking news of an SU-30 being shot down later removed the story.
