    Ok. Fair. Next time will send you legal notice 1 month prior events like what occurred on the 27th Feb.

    Would it be fair enough ? Because you would have one full month to be prepared...:omghaha:

    Very true of F16.

    IAF would not be what it is today if paf had gone for F4 instead of F16.

    Paf could not have pulled off feb26 without F16 - amraam combo.

    Indian shortsightedness in the matters of its defense.

    My observation is that your country is growing complacent in the matters of security. YOU are taking both Pakistan and China for granted in your security calculus, and the professionalism of your armed forces is increasingly questionable at present. Some of your defense analysts - who understand the bigger picture - have openly asserted that India is no longer prepared for a major war with either Pakistan or China. Your choice and call.

    Hahaha

    Like seriously? Whose fault is it if IAF isn't 'prepared' for any eventuality at any point in time?

    By the way, one needs to define "preparation."

    IAF lost 57 aircraft to enemy action in 1971. PAF lost 24. Despite the odds.

    IAF was too high on modafinil on 26th in order to counter a PAF response then their flight surgeons gave them relaxants to sleep it off.

    PAF trolled them and hit them in broad daylight on 27th.

    So much for a two front war.

    I always laugh when their media writes all the technical jargon BS.

    The reality is much different than their modafinil fueled hallucinations.

    Like they ever had any!!!

    We gave India a bloody nose in '71 despite grounding a good part of the PAF due to mutinies (Bengali Crew, Officers and Pilots).

    India in a no holds war will try to incapacitate paf assets with missiles like brahmos on the ground.

    True but we can do similar stuff too. Why do you always think that blowing up assests is one sided.

    Day dreaming is good at least to make you guys feel better in a fantasy world.
    Just like kids; choosing among different lollypops to figure out which one is better. Keep guessing and choosing; suddenly another surprise will come.

    Sure man. How many have you got to cover all assets?

    Asset disbursal is practiced for that same reason. We have plenty of strips and back up motorway strips available to disburse our inventory.

    BTW range of brahmos is dependent upon flight profile so do expect a counterstrike especially if you are hoping for lo-lo strike.

    Just because we don't advertise our SOW weapons does not mean that we don't have adequate SOW and cruise missiles.

    PAF will also be using all assets to make sure that maximum enemy assets are destroyed on ground.

    Lessons from gulf war 1 are enough to give us an idea w.r.t the air war intensity needed in first few days.

    PAF practices considering all the numerical superiority factors of IAF.

    One is a momin in the moment. There was not and there will never be an army of momins ;-). Its a state of mind and that too temporary.

    Each and every pilot and airman that was up on the 27th and in the future fits the bill.

    He was sent to evaluate the F-16 but Shahid Latif landed with first F-16 in Pakistan.

    [​IMG]

    TEXAS (Fort Worth): In Dec. 1981, Air Commodore M. M. ALAM visited General Dynamics facilities here. Photo shows him at controls of F-16 Fighting Falcon with a GD test pilot in the rear seat.
    M. M. ALAM, who had been called ‘flying virtuoso’ by a leading US aviation magazine, had test flown F-16 at Fort Worth.
