    Our Phalcon AWACs are equally potent platforms like E3 but the problem in UK was that SU-30MKIs were not data linked with them. By the time target data cud be passed on R/T, someone became a target.

    What it tells me is that every time India come out and give a different account to the other party, much like France.

    At least France released some tapes. We have yet to see any from the British.

    then your design is not very good because it focuses on existing planes weakness

    if a new desing plane comes up removing that weakness your palne becomes ineffective

    My quote was not specific to the exercise in UK only, it happened much before that in Red Flag also. You loser.

    I am not designing a plane for yesterday but for couple of decades ahead.

    You mean in all the other exercises where other airforces disagreed with your account too.

    You don't really know that 2v1 is a standard BFM scenario.

    The Typhoon won 2v1 against 2 F-15Es over Europe and the Typhoon won a 2v1 versus F-16s in Singapore. The MKI winning 2v1 against the Typhoon is no surprise since the MKI is a superior dog fighter.

    We discussed this. The max AoA of a Typhoon is 70*. A 45% increase would bring it to Rafale's level, that's more than 100*. We don't have a clear number on the roll rate, if achieved it could surpass Rafale in roll.

    Nevertheless, both aircraft are superior to the late model teens when it comes to dog fighting.

    Except it isn't though. If it was, it wouldn't need TVC for a start. TVC is a patch for last gen SRAAM capabilities and inferior aerodynamic handling and leaves it vulnerable in any multiple plane encounter.

    The Typhoon doesn't have TVC because the consortium cannot afford it. If it was affordable, all Typhoons would have had TVC by now.

    It was or the tvc or the aerodynamic patch. They got the patch.
