As long as you guys are happy, Im happy.You are right, Basically it was a Self Embarrassment Test. Which you guys pass successfully. So, congrat from me.
Keep it up.
i was mistakenly talking about the the two fuel tank on upper fuselage.So you think the spine contains a fuel tank. indeed.
mate he must be saying that about our mirage 3 and their mig 21 bison not su 30 or he might be comparing mirage 2000 with su 30.because otherwise it don't make sense and it is impossible for a senior paf official to give such statements.I was looking a program few years back where a retired PAF higher official said on TV that PAF Mirages and IAF SU30 are just having difference of 19 20. though he did not provide details but this clearly makes PAF f16 a clear winner against su30 as we know that even JFT is better than Mirages and f16 is even better than JFT
The reaction of Pakistanis is very desperate since they know they have no other fighters they can acquire immediately. We all know the SU35 drama on this forum and the chest thumping and the umpteen fake sales of the JF17.
India is raising a voice since it can afford to..couple that with the negative opinion the American people have on Pakistan, there is always a chance it will be heard.
As usual the Pakistani bravado will always make them celebrate before any confirmation, we've know seen it a dozen time with the SU35 sales and multiple JF17 export sales.
The least you can do is wait for the 8 to land home, else its dejavu all over again..
Pakistani's are ever eager to glorify themselves. And we can always trust them to miss the forest for the woods.
India's unprecedented actions against an impending sale of F-16's is not about F-16's at all. Pakistani Airforce today stands as a joke in front of the IAF in terms of weapons capability, technology and numbers. 8 F-16's don't even change an iota of that.
Its about how today India has unprecedented global clout compared to its past - this is in effect a test for the Govt of India. Does India have enough global clout now to change the course of international action?
Its a yes/no answer. If no, then we would have a credible assessment of what India can not manage and where do we need to invest more - to attain more clout. If yes, then we would have a credible assessment of what we can manage.
Basically it is a self assessment test.
Pakistani advising India on how better to spend our money..India tried all the tooth and nail to stop this deal. But couldn't.
Instead of wasting millions of USD for lobbying and buying the congressmen, maybe India should've spent that monies on it's own betterment.
That should tell you more about the 'clout of India' in the present scenario.
Pakistani advising India on how better to spend our money..
Maybe Pakistan should stop sending so much money on harboring snakes, hows that for an advice?
