    Oh God, twisting semantics now. If it was 100%, you would not say 'more than 50%'. That's like saying 'more than 10% equates to 1000%.

    So that's still less than Captor-M anyway. Hardly impressive.

    So make up your mind, 50% or 100%? Or are people just pulling numbers out of their arse? Because that's what it looks like.

    You won't get either. China will warn them of economic consequences if they assist, and that will be you done.

    No need for Captor-E to beat that. https://archive.is/OiC9r 2018 is for Kuwait not RAF. RAF goes to radar 2 2021/2022.

  27. BMD replied to the thread Rafale deal signed.

    No. You're talking about using data links, which are not passive. If a radar targets you, you have to jam, which is not passive.
