NSR says …
SU-30MKI is a great air dominance fighter bomber…
It came to USA for Red Flag exercises and I read a lot of stories about their performance and Indian pilots in USA Newspapers…
Some pilots even testified before Senate/House about their capabilities…
The Super Sukhois with latest AESA radars can be even better performer…
India must convert all SU-30MKI to Super Sukhois …
Going to an all new plane like Rafale will create immense technology and logistic nightmares to India…
Besides that Rafale looks good too and is shining…

IAF's logistic nightmare is today with Su-30, and all other Russian jets for that matter.
Big fat Su is impressive on ground but useless waiting for spares and maintenance.

Raffy is king of the skies, Su is hangar queen :).

We should include Tejas to test its stamina! It could be great to see the Sukhoi Rafale n Tejas trio

Sukhoi is a beast! Look at Rafales, they are at best side kicks. 🙂

Rafel fits the perfect bill in overall IAF skeleton of squadrons since its pragmatic principle to have mix of heavy (MKIs), light (LCA) and medium(Rafael) size aircraft's in the inventory.

I don't buy the high- low mix mantra. What's the point? Rather have one good jet capable of all roles. Rafale beats LCA and Su-30 by far in all tasks. Extra flyaway cost is more than offset by single training, single -and much cheaper!- logistics, and most important: less numbers for more effect.

Size matters… Very impressive and very inefficient the bigger the jet, the less it manoeuvres and the more it shows up on radar ("unstealth"). As fighter, I prefer small and nimble Jet a bit invisible rather than big fat sitting duck sticking out like sore thumb. As bomber, what matters is payload x accuracy. Rafale carrying 1.5 it's own weight (empty=10 tons, max 24.5). Su-30 has big payload, even greater (dead)weight to trawl it around but mostly un-smart weapons. During iron fist saw very impressive pics of Su dropping 26 bombs. But that's WWII carpet bombing tactic: spray tons to… Read more »

American soldier still continued using M16 even when AK 47 was easy to service and much popular around the world !French still make their own weapons !Chinease manufacture their own weapons after copying from russians but Indian army is happy to blame it to politicians and goes on shopping spree !! Why Indian army never fought any war after 1971 even after several humiliations ?? is this because of politicians or their own in capability ?? I think they should be proactive than doing Garuda exercises …… what is the use of this when pakistan with less equipment's keeps making… Read more »

Nice looking planes, but we are looking at 4th or 4.5 generatio planes. The future unfortunately has moved on for some time now. Look, even Japan will be flying shortly its home brew 5th gen fighter. Return of the legendary Zero?
