What a surprise! The french threaten to sell Nuclear technology to Pakistan two weeks back and look how India caved !
Now possible MMS will use French planes to deliver nukes to Puke instead
Shiv uncle, I have come to Delhi from Meerut and joined Army ublic School in Ist standard and Poda bhayya in 3rd standard.
We will stay in Manekshaw Marg army officers flats, third floor.
Aap hamari mummy se jalool jalool milne aana. Aap hamare ghar jalool aana, Manekshaw Marg mein aur hamare ghar khaana bhi khaana

buy only rafale,mig35 ,these two aircrafts are better than others
which one is better – rafale or mig35 ??
which one is better – rafale or mig35——————————-rafale is best of all
mig35 is cheaper and has commonality with mig29,mig29k
both of these comes without hiccups and sovereign authority over aircraft and its software
Happy to see her back cos Rafael is the most matured system after F18 in this competition. All other competitors have yet to qualify with their AESA radars.But still the cost of Mirage 2000 upgrade is making my stomach churn.
We should buy the British Spitfires.
The french cannot sell their nuclear technology to pakistan as US will not let it happen.
They do not want to see a nuclear taliban…do they now…
Any way..I still say we go for Mig 35….That baby is hot
gripen NG/IN has operating cost less than 3000 dollars per hour
but again in gripen IN there are
SYSTEMS FROM USA
engine,wheel brake and controls,audio management system,air data computer——————————-SYSTEMS FROM UK
control stick,throttle lever,some parts of airframe,refuelling probe,ejection seat,enviromental systems,landing gear,hydraulic system——————————–SYSTEMS FROM FRANCE
fuel systems,may be AESA radar——————————–GUN IS FROM GERMANY—————————–SYSTEMS FROM SWEDEN
rodome,parts of airframe and landing gear,MFD,flight control systems,system computer
and this is gripen IN
85 gripen NG were offered to netherlands instead of norway
Do not worry about French selling Nuclear tech to Pakistan. If the French won’t, Chinese will Or US will via Chinese. It is all a game to control India, not Pakistan.
Besides, I say let them gift Pakistan as many ICBMs and hydrogen bombs as they want. We all know that Pakis are eventually going to be using them on Paris and Pentagon anyway, roflmao.
Any day now, JDAM in US or Europe. AoA.
Not many people realize that Mig29/35 is actually bigger than F18 or any other aircraft in this competition.———————————-when empty and unloaded both f18e and mig35 weigh around same and both are of similar dimensions
only rafale,typhoon weigh less and both are of smaller size
After building an AESA it takes years to develop and fine tune algorithms to process the data being received from the sensor. Radar reflections from different types of targets in different environmental conditions must be tested to build the data base to allow the sensor identify targets reliably. Remember the software component of a modern combat aircraft is the most difficult and expensive to develop.Only AGP79 is matured in this regard. Followed by RBE2 AESA which has undergone over 5 years of testing. All other systems in question are in their infancy.
Yes the Russians painted “Mig35” on a Mig29. It was a technology demonstrator.
Oh, about the cruise missile defense. LLQRM is a point defense system and can only defend important targets. No ground based radar can detect a low flying CM beyond 20-25km. The preferred defense against CM involves use of interceptor aircraft. The aircraft sensor becomes even more important because even AWACS cant keep continuous track of low flying targets in our Himalayan frontiers.
and yes su30mki will be fitted with irbis e radar which has much better detection range than apg79
