It's a good strategy. Your enemies are dying of heart attacks. Poor folks can't stop laughing at Indian antics.
and buying second hand a/c's after all the multi billion $ nonsense.

Check paint peeling of vertical stabilizer, and panel missing behind cockpit, for those too blinded to see what is wrong with this "new" a/c.

Look like Indian pilot's were training hard & probably already have clocked 100 of hours between them. no wonder paint is peeling off. This is common for air forces who actually fly & train for longer duration , can't say same about some other air forces, who are more interested in photoshoots & propaganda and khwabi pulao's.

Just shows, poor leadership and maintenance, but you carry on with your senseless rhetoric.

Few hundred hours and paint starts peeling off. Our Suzuki Mehrans are better than that.

Keep your nonsesnse under a tight lid
Meteor , the primary BVRAAM for Indian Rafale has 3 times the NEZ in head on engagement than AMRAAM thanks to next generation throttleable ducted rocket aka ramjet technology.

State of the art > along with this meteor has 3 to 6 times the kinetic performance of conventional BVRAAM including dual pulse ones. Coupled with RBE 2 -AA AESA spectra combo + AWACS support. Full potential of this BVRAAM is now have been realised.

Which AIM-120 are you addressing? There are three versions, deployed.

Post the specs of the latest AIM-120D so readers can judge for themselves, the difference between it and Meteor.

I think this time PLAAF will surprise the new 'raptor' of the East before PAF, just a Hint PL-15

PL-15 is inferior to AMRAAM 120D. Chinese are even behind russians forget Americans. as for 'raptor' of the East it still is SU 30MKI.
PAF ain't matching it anytime soon. You can call rafale nightmare of the east though (:-)

PL-15 blows the Meteor out of the water (or the sky in this case).

It carries more fuel, and has much longer range than the Meteor.

Pl-21 will be a ramjet based on this, and will increase range to an incompetable 400km+.

Also, it has a two-way data-link as opposed to Meteor's one-way.

You just googled these new words and don't really understand what they mean. Kinetic performance cannot be simplified into numbers where you can say something x times better than y. They are depicted based on flight profiles and charted out against designated scenarios.
