    The things you mentioned are not the only important things.There are many other factors like Radar,avionics and other subsystems,weaponary.
    We will get French-Israeli avionics which are much better than Russian ones.Also we can get missiles like Meteor on our MKIs if we want to.Also we got Astra missile,Bramhos operational,Nirbhay under progress.
    Su-35 has no such options.
    In these all terms MKI got upperhand.:tup:

    Rafale Consortium presents technical details of your aircraft at LAAD Security 2012
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    In a presentation to the media specialist, the Rafale International consortium led by French companies Dassault Aviation, Thales and Snecma, presented yesterday afternoon (04/11/2012) during LAAD 2012 Security technologies and solutions that are part of the proposal share offered to the Brazilian government in the F-X2 fighter acquisition of new fab.

    A video presentation of technical and operational stress allowed some innovative features of the Rafale. Moreover, reaping the technical details is possible to understand their operational capacity, has recently proven in combat in Afghanistan and Libya.

    It was emphasized that the French fighter from the beginning is designed for all missions, and also replace all types of aircraft in service with French forces. Being really, since its origin, OMNIROLE a game, unlike a multipurpose game and can play in a single mission all the functions of:

    - Air defense and air policing;
    - Aerial reconnaissance;
    - Air-ground attacks, air-sea;
    - Deterrence.

    Interface HOTAS

    The home-machine interface in the Rafale is based on the concept HOTAS - Hands on Throttle and Stick - along with touch-sensitive screens, plus a great tactical display. Making the Rafale fighter easy to learn, ride and give the pilot total situational awareness.

    Spectra and AESA Radar

    Spectra shield against electronic threats, is an electronic warfare system totally enclosed in the Rafale, which makes available all external stations for weapons, fuel tanks or bores.

    The Rafale's AESA radar delivers superior range for detection and acquisition, with the scanning electron agility and ability to track targets within or outside the aerial search, and soil mapping modes with ultra-high resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR).

    The AESA radar for the Rafale is the most advanced for this class of fighters. It also allows the Rafale flight at low altitude over land is not mapped in modes with autopilot engaged in low or no visibility.

    With a full load of weapons and fuel the Rafale takes off with two and a half times its empty weight - more than any other game in its class can.

    According to the French, now the Rafale combat aircraft is a mature and at the same time, the starting point for an evolution toward a variant exclusive designs by Brazilian industry through technological and industrial cooperation.

    The transfer of technology will provide the source code FAB total autonomy to meet future needs.

    DSA Malaysia 2012: Safran's Malaysian expansion strengthens Rafale's MRCA bid
    By Jon Grevatt

    4/18/2012

    Turbomeca and Snecma – subsidiaries of French group Safran – have expanded their presence in the Malaysian aerospace and defence market through investment and industrial collaboration deals with local firm Global Turbine Asia (GTA), it emerged at the Defence Services Asia (DSA) exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

    Both deals have strengthened Dassault's hand in bidding for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) requirement.

    Under the terms of the collaboration agreement, GTA will service the Snecma M88 turbojet engine that powers the Dassault Rafale if the French fighter wins the USD1.5 billion MRCA contract, which is also being contested by Russia's Sukhoi Su-30MKM, the Eurofighter Typhoon, the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and Saab's Gripen NG.

    GTA confirmed to IHS Jane's on 17 April that Turbomeca has recently completed the acquisition of a 30 per cent stake in the Malaysian company. Meanwhile, Snecma signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with GTA that is intended to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to Snecma engines in service in civil and military sectors in Malaysia.
