    Bro how can you assume that Chinese AESA will be inferior to local AESA, We have no to minimum experience to R&D for Radar especially AESA, might be this local AESA is in development with help of China or Turkey, China has lots of experience to design land and Naval AESA

    As for Long range 150-200 km is enough for fighter jets, extremely long range BVR like Chinese VLRAAM/R-37/KS-172 are useless against maneuverable/agile targets, they are design to knock down non -maneuverable targets like AWACS/TANKERS and other ISR (intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance) target

    i was unaware and missed that development, thanks for the update,
    I think Dual Pulse motor is equally good enough once it's perfected and mastered.

    Hmmmm, so practically we face 2 problems for introducing VLRAAM in PAF.
    1) Its size, but R&D and finances for that will be done by China, so we are good with that once it's sorted.
    2) A Heavy platform for PAF ..... No one can answer that except the PAF.

    Bro last news about PL-21 i heard may be 2011-2013, and it has a drawback also, Ramjet air intake can create lot of drag during flight hence you need more fuel/thrust to over came drag, the only advantage of Ramjet BVR that it has three time of NEZ (No Escape zone) then conventional (dual pulse rocket motor) BVR like AMRAAM

    Once Rafale is fully inducted and operational and IAF can train and develop tactics with it...
    ...based on how the current Indian gov is...with the whole chest thumping and what not...I have a feeling they might try something like what they did in February.

    They tried before when they didn't have Rafale + Meteor. With those added they will feel emboldened...and in their make believe superpower status and to make up for the humiliation...they will probably try to carry out some strikes with SOW using their M2Ks while Rafales armed with meteor provide them cover.

    that would be a fatal mistake for the indian rafale. india has nothing including the meteor that can compete with the PL15 that PAF already has...I'm tellin' ya man...the rafales are a mistake, shoulda gone for the tie fighters instead. ;)

    PL-15 is just a false rumors for block-2 by some fanboys with no confirmation by PAF

    ok fine, so 130km for detection, and chasing the target for up to 200km...happy? block-3 is gonna be a game changer.

    India knew this reality from long time..... and they still managed to control the damage, limited to loss of single SU.
    Clearly wars are not only fought at battle front.
    India definitely have assets in /around bani gala.

    These specs are useless when pilot have to wait for permission from politicians via airforce leader ship, before pressing the button.

    I hope they do. Would present an awesome opportunity to humiliate India and their French backers.

    you do know that the PL15 has a radar of its own and takes over, right? I don't know the range, but after N number of miles, the PL15 tracks & chases the target on its own without the need to the launching platform's radar.
