    What don't you get about unofficial? For instance, at a cursory glance, how come the annotation on the above is in English?

    How many more statements about no SEAD ability would you like? The only way Rafale can destroy SAMs (short range) is by picking up something, looking around with the targeting point and firing something, it has no spontaneous SEAD capability.

    Meanwhile, until F4, it seems geolocation is just a dream/lie too.

    So much for this phase interferometric geolocation you promised these poor saps.

    We try, unsuccessfully, to explain to BMD why the Typhoon has lost all its technical confrontations with the Rafale, and how much, information about the F-35, is pure propaganda. We are kind to him to try not to sadden him but he always seeks confrontation with the French and believes that he knows better the Rafale than Dassault and Thales who give us information. He always tries to counter us by selecting studies of Anglo-Saxon origin not well informed. You must not be too angry with him, life is hard with his beliefs.

    I specify and recall
    1 / that to be able to remove a battery, one must not abuse of stealth because it is necessary that the battery emits so that the SPECTRA locates it.
    2 / that the more stealth the aircraft is, the less jamming power is required (unless we want an accompanying jamming).

    The RCS of the Rafale is what it is, not that much different from other obsolete 4th generation planes.
    You can go to Global Fire Power and look up the RCS of any plane.

    I rephrase : So basically a US government contracted researcher with full intelligence support corroborated by two official French sources vs Donnie Darko in his mum's basement.
    And Frence is not a among the few unconditional supporters of USA (GB, Canada, Australia), and the sole occidental non US top league fighters maker....

    Could draw a similar chart for the MMRCA deal alone.

    Who's bought the Rafale, excluding 3rd world countries?

    So, a US source corroborated by 2 French sources, all official, backed up by an independent source and an aviation journal.

    Naturally. Because we know for sure the Rafale is a stealth aircraft.
