What a beautiful aeroplane!
Menacing, yet so elegant.
Good one …I like your analysis a much as the pictures above….
TIMBAKTOO…very well written!
May be it's my eyes, but ever since I looked at this airframe for the first time, it just seems that the airframe is a bit of an overkill for the platform it supports. It looks like the Russians use the airframe that was sitting around to mount the radar… of course a lot more science went into this selection than the oversimplied version I gave, but unfortunately that is the impression I am left with every time I look at these pictures…. Any way, still a very useful platform and no doubt about it.
This is a qualitative addition to the strength.
AWACS play very important role in enhancing IAF capabilities,,, do u have any idea when Embraers will be inducted,,, there were plans of some 3-4 planes being inducted..???
