India's Rafale edge: A look at the special features of the fighter aircraft
India got its first Rafale jet at a ceremony in France on Tuesday, with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh taking a sortie in the combat aircraft.



After a 15-year procurement process, India got its first Rafale jet at a ceremony in France on Tuesday, with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh taking a sortie in the combat aircraft. The first aircraft will arrive in India only in May 2020 - a batch of four Rafale jets will be dispatched to the Ambala airbase after training pilots.


For almost two decades, the IAF has been perceived to be handicapped on long-range weapons and sensors vis-a-vis PAF


Officials say for each Pak F16 in the air, two Su30MKI jets have to be scrambled because of superior radar & missiles of American jets.



COMPARED to SU30MKI fighter jets in the IAF, Rafale fares much higher

LOITERING CAPABILITY: 1.5 times of Su30MKI

RANGE: 780-1055 km vs 400-550 of Su30MKI

5 SORTIES per 24 hours against 3 by Su30MKI

THE DEAL:
India in September 2016 inked a direct deal with French government to purchase 36 Rafale jets for €7.87 billion. Deal includes over €3 billion of work for the Indian industry over the next 7-8 years India to get 28 singleseater jets and 8 twinseaters for training

TAIL NUMBER:
Indian Rafale jets carry the RB series of tail numbers, named after current IAF chief RKS Bhadauria.

The Edge:
The weapons package outguns all other weapons systems in the region and will give India the ability to engage Pakistani jets from a distance without being tracked. Also, air to-ground SCALP missile will be able to take down virtually any target within Pakistani soil.

Weapons
SCALP: Precision long-range ground attack missile that can take out targets with extreme accuracy. Has a range of much over 300 km.


METEOR: Beyond visual range air-toair missile that is possibly the best in its class. Can take out enemy aircraft at a range of over 100 km. Has a no escape zone of over 60 km and the missile easily outclasses the Americanorigin.

INDIA SPECIFIC:
While other nations, including France and Egypt operate Rafale jets, the ones supplied to India are more advanced and modified to meet specific requirements.

Helmet mounted sights & targeting system to give the pilots lightening quick ability to shoot off weapons.

Ability to take off from high altitude airbases like Leh on a ‘cold start’ for quick reaction deployment AMRAAM currently with Pak with dead accuracy.

Towed decoy system to thwart incoming missile attacks

French industrial support for 50 years.

Combined with the upcoming deliveries of the S400 air defence system next year, it will greatly enhance Indian air superiority in the region.

Can anyone with authentic knowledge confirm these attributes of su-30? I think they are false.

It is an old Indian tactic to appear smaller and timid to the enemy, and then at wartime, show the true face

We only have to go back between 1965 and 1971 when enemy worked behind the scene to acquire weapons while we faced sanctions

Behind the scene, they are fixing their hierarchy ordering adjustment weapons

We have limited time to order used Destroyers from China (retired) and also find a fill gap squadron or two for Euro fighter , similarly increase Al Khaild production levels

Pakistan shouldn't have given Indians chance to re-organize and re-establish.
Only, If we had decimated IAF on 27th February.
Aswell, Kashmir would have been clear of Indian occupying forces.

The first batch of Rafale,belonging to the Golden Arrow Squadron will be based In Ambala airbase.Recent satellite images show temporary jet sheds being built across the base rapidly to host the 4th gen multirole fighter. I want my Falcons to have a good look at it,as it may be the primary target after initiation of hostilities.

Much of China's retired naval assets are presumed to be extremely subpar.

Eurofighters = Yes!

Pakistan's MBT choice-making is a bit confusing to me. On one hand, PA seemed highly keen on AK and was planning on more advance AK-2, which was to be rolled out by 2019. While the news on AK-2 went into obscurity rumors of PA's interests in T-90 and Oplot began. Needless to say, there appears nothing concrete regarding all three MBTs. Though I think we should eventually see an AK-2.

Overall, I think we need to lay low and continue to develop our capabilities at the pace our economy would allow. Plus, of course, improve the economy. So far the trends are not looking good.

Pakistan seriously lacking production push when it comes to local production. If economy is the reason a simple remedy can be direct all NAB recovery money towards these production. It will not put extra strain on economy as govt. will not have to spend anything from exchequer.

Ability to take off from high altitude airbases like Leh on a ‘cold start’ for quick reaction deployment AMRAAM currently with Pak with dead accuracy.

AMRAAM dead accuracy now they are praising AMRAAm accuracy
