Su-30 is mini awacs. In weaponry term it is a mini truck.
Su-30's radar is crap. Armenia's Su-30SM which has superior Bars-R radar compared to Su-30MKI's Bars radar cannot detect Azerbaijan's prop drones which are slower than WW1 fighter planes during 2020 Armenia Azerbaijan war.

Rafale weaponry prompts China, Pak to alter defence posture

With the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) Rafale fighter successfully test-firing the 60km range Hammer air-to-ground modular weapon in March, the air defence posture of both China and Pakistan has changed in the wake of the advent of the multi-role fighter in South Asia, according to people familiar with the matter.


The Hammer weapon secured a bunker-busting vertical hit on its target at the testing location. According to top South Block officials, with the IAF’s first Rafale squadron completed with 18 fighters in Ambala, the Chinese have moved their so-called fifth generation fighter J-20 ahead in the Tibet and Xinjiang airbases. The Pakistanis have also moved their Chinese import JF-17 fighter in key forward bases to tackle the clear and present threat of the Rafale fighter. Although the Chinese say the J-20 is the third operational fifth-generation fighter after the US F-22 and F-35, genuine fifth-generation fighters developed by the Americans do not have a canard that further reduces the cross-section of the plane, the officials said. The Chinese J-20 has the same canard as the Rafale, which the IAF calls a 4.5-generation fighter.

The Chinese and Pakistani air posture has also undergone a change with IAF’s induction of the Rafale as the latter carries the Meteor air-to-air missile, whose range is way beyond any missile the other two forces have in their arsenal. The Hammer and Scalp air-launched cruise missile with a range of over 500km ensures that the adversary will have no early warning as the two weapons can be launched from within Indian territory and beyond visual range.

While India could only send three out of five readied fighters from the Merignac Bordeaux airbase in France on Wednesday due to unforeseen reasons, seven more fighters have been lined up for delivery to IAF next month. Although the seven fighters may come in batches of three and four, six of them will be flown to the Hashimara airbase in West Bengal via Ambala. The re-pavement and extension of the main runway at Hashimara, which sits astride the Siliguri corridor, is expected to be completed by this month-end. The Haishmara upgrade also includes blast pens and surface-to-air missile batteries to protect the vital base.

What can they do by changing the posture? Can they get anything similar to Rafale or meteor.

Oh thanks God, they didn't mentioned that 40 years old super over the moon but still incomplete TEJAS (F45) which is being the worries of all the nations living on the Mars? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

TLDR

(According to these guys);

1: Real 5th gen fighters like F 35 and F 22 don’t have canards. Since J20 has them, then J 20 must not be a true 5th gen fighter.

2: JF -17 is Chinese
(I love it when ever I read this, makes me all warm and fuzzy to know how hard this pill is for the Indians to swallow)

3: Amazing India

These guys are a special group of geniuses. Lol.

Hey OP, please feel free to post from a more credible sources next time. Thanks
Even the proposed naval variant of f23 had canard design
These dumb Indian make up bs and eat it too

If this is our enemy's best...

I am going to snore loudly
Rafael does not have a chance to survive in front of JF17. I find it amusing to see how gullible Pakistanis are ?
Cross the border...let's see.
You no longer mention su30mki. By the time PAF finish with Rafael. You will bring bollywood actresses to bend over for our jawans
