    Now tell me how would you install a virus in a system, without having a knowledge of the system, its algorithm, its ports, its algorithm.

    You should check the Japanese Skyline Cars, made by the hackers and could be hacked using a laptop.

    An US destroyer was incapacitated by Russians when it entered Baltic Sea a few years ago. The sukhoi, d did some twenty sorties over the incapacitated destroyer.

    LOL, they didn't fired on them, because any hostility move by them, would bring the warth of the Russian, in their backyard.

    And then the stories of the Russians supremacy in EW circulates in the media. Some people can take this B.S propaganda seriously, but they should check the video, how close they were flying, and could be targeted with the Anti Aircraft Guns.

    I may not be as educated as many of the members on this forum about cyber warfare but I have suffered complete FBW failure on A-320 due to kink in electrical supply/bug. I landed back safely, switched off all electrical power including batteries for ten minutes. Once I restarted the electrical supplies, the system went thru self correction and did self test and the problem was resolved. A-320 being a pax aircraft has positive stability and so it remains flyable in Direct law of FBW system but a RSS/Unstable aircraft might crash due to complete loss of control.
    If can happen to A-320, it can happen to any such system.

    If it was hacked it can't be done remotely at least. It could be a pre defined task by a worm if infected during checks. Even the alis on f35 is said to be hackable but not the avionics until a worm is pre installed in the hardware. I seriously doubt the theory

    So no official statement from the government , means it wasn't a attack from foreign countries.

    Possible to do what the article suggests.

    Theoretically. But the credibility goes out when analogy of 5 vehicles and one mortar shell is given. As if IA vehicles are fly by wire hi tech :D

    Having said that, the weather was bad in the area when tge aircraft was lost.

    One can add dimensions of DEW also, possible. But one can keep it simple and attribute it to pilot error in extremely bad weather in a tough geographical locale.

    SU-30MKI has TFR in full auto mode. Weather and visibility is not a concern for it.

    Did say as above.
    Won't help in the tight valleys at low levels in extremely bad weather. Connect with white out conditions in mountains and narrow valleys and add pilot error.

    @vstol jockey Even A-320 with it's FMS and FBW system, does crash due to pilot error in bad weather Sochi, Russia 2006 being a good example of crash after a go around.

    China does not have electronic black out capabilities. It is just a copy machine, a huge one, which can duplicate any weopon.

    Do you mean someone might have sabotaged the plane while it was on ground? This is quite plausible, that a chinese spy sabotaged the Su-30 and installed a broken firmware while it was under going routine inspection. But then such kind of vulnerabilities exists in almost any machine and any system.
