to some extent you are right but you should also take into consideration the faulty strategy regarding the defence of the east which failed in 71 and that was "the defence of the east lies in the west" . it proved wrong. no body stopped us from placing more military in the east,more jets and air bases in the east. we ignored it politically and militarily and paid the price. the immaturity at political level from both sides led to the disaster and it was bound to happen. a wise enemy always exploits your weaknesses which they did.Especially since your gang is 10X larger
I believe the eastern sector shouldn't even be included in any analysis, as we don't hold that now nor unimaginable bad odds count as anything even today if face eastern like situation even an f22 won't save you..as you need your base to operate any war including air war..
i know by arguing here with you i am just banging my head against a wall and wasting my time and i knew it while even i was even replying to you in the very first post . no logical person would have believed that india or any other country can get her hands on all the latest equipment within one year of a lost engagment. they are just now more serious and have accelerated the pace. good bye .Meri ankhain khuli hain, tum zara apna qibla durust kar lo....tum tu yea bi keh rahey ho key eik saal key andar hi bahut kuch change ho gaya.....may i remind you Rafales and others were ordered not in last 12 months but some five years earlier....this is what you said earlier.
''i guess lot has been changed for IAF after feb 2019. just like alot changed in IAF after receiving severe blows in 65 and they performed relatively well in 71''
