Very comprehensive ? This was a milquetoast analysis.
He didn't mention the SPECTRA EW suite which makes the Rafale so dangerous, no mention of the stand off weapons and other munitions either.
Also, there will be a LOT more than 36 by the end of it.
He also dismissed the J-10 as some sort of transitory temporary system for the PLAAF..
and the J-20s will not be for export, PAF will get the J-31.
Totally agreed, we should all be very nervous about the IAF now.Rafale is nothing, it won't change equations... when block 3 or future blocks arrive.. rafale / IAF may not be able defend itself... they have azm now.. sooner or later we can expect test flight.. more over they flown it already.. they know every aspect of rafale ..

I had to share this only. Don't want to guess wrong but sarcasm is the worst case of a Quality argument. IAF is Superior always.Totally agreed, we should all be very nervous about the IAF now.
I mean, the PAF aces, best pilots anywhere in the world are training the Qataris on the Rafales.
When they're not crashing their own jets, IAF incompetent pilots will be easy pickings for PAC aces.
The thing is, good sir..sarcasm is the worst case of a Quality argument. IAF is Superior always.
Gripen is neither available nor a counter to rafaleI stopped writing anything in this forum since last year Indian occupation of kashmir and no reply from our side.
But Mastan khan's brutal and correct analysis forced me to take part.
When I was in school in 1989,s at that time science digest was a magazine to inform us about defence updates as well. And anything Pakistan use to get from America, was highly appreciated in that magazine. while it was presented if indians do not know anything about weapons purchases.
Some of those Indian purchased systems later on Pakistan purchased or wished to get them like ATGM or SAM or some tank or artillary systems....
Raffle is a generation ahead of F16 and its not one to one fight but destructive capabilities of a generation ahead aircraft which makes it formidable .
There must have been some planning from our side when India was planning for MMRCA . Now 10 years passed by and we could not find a solution and according to some news , we want J10 from China as immediate reply to Rafael.
A squadron of Grippen fighters might have cost about 1.5 billion dollars or max 2 billion dollars but we could be able to counter the technological advantage which India is enjoying. From 2011 onwards we have not purchased anything new apart from jf17.
Even we cancelled the deal for 8 F16 as we had to pay from our own pocket on one hand we are stating that due to infrastructure availability and experience on F16 its best suited aircraft for us , on the other hand we are reluctant to pay 700 million dollars for these 8 aircrafts, as if some other country like Russia will deliver us fighter aircraft' free
Of cost. Time is passing by very quickly and we must decide to get some advance fighters
Out karenge ya usko bowlers end pe khara rehendge aur baqi sab ko out kardenge. Har masle ka hal hota hai aur zindagi maut ke khel mein aur bhi desperate hota hai.The thing is, good sir..
that both forces have high regard for the enemy, as any good opposing military forces should.
the new bird in the IAF inventory IS a threat to any potential enemies of India.. this is a fact
guaranteed victory, total superiority.. this is BS
so ignore the retarded Indian sansani media (even we do not take them seriously here and are embarrassed by them )
but go talk to a real PAF person/pilot outside of the public space.. Rafales are dangerous war machines, be foolish to downplay the threat..
shoaib akthar ki speed kaise sambhalogey ?
sarfraz ki swing se kaise bachogey ?
sehwag offense pe chala gaya.. kya karo ge ?
both sides need to think and strategize
but yeah.. now we have a new Tendulkar in IAF
kya karoge ?
The Su30 MKI weapon system is now quite old.Indian planners underestimated the combo of JF-17, Mirage Rose and F-16 block 52's. They thought Su-30 was all they needed. The Americans even approved the F-16 block 52's because they thought SU-30 would dominate PAF.
It has to be felt by the one who flies. Don't need to worry. As the argument goes & SQ8 precisely defined; this is all about the strategy, combination & breaking the pack. Since I don't have enough to take on the giant head on or my reach to hammer the head; I will keep cutting legs & arms to bring it down to my level. How & when will be done; is all the real business.Feel free to delete post.. just a bit after reading posts.. regarding strategies to counter IAF, i felt like Rafale or IAF is nothing..
