if Rafale jets were inducted on time: IAF chief

"In the Balakot operation, we had technology on our side, and we could launch precision stand of weapons with great accuracy. In the subsequent engagements, we came out better because we upgraded our MiG-21s, Bisons, and Mirage-2000 aircraft," he said.
"The results would have been further skewed in our favour had we inducted the Rafale aircraft in time," Dhanoa said.

My question:
If all was done with accuracy and precision by IAF, incl. subsequent engagements, than why IAF didn't shot all of PAF jet's, which according to them were in the air, within close proximity to border?
If Bisons and Mirage-2000 are upgraded recently, than why do they need Rafael?

No R-77 on Bison a radar on Bison has a insufficient range to guide R-77 to its max range, only R-73 were recovered, these are all R-73 not 2 R-77 and 2 R-73 @BATMAN :-E
If Bison's radar doesnt have the range to guide a BVR missile, it could have been possible either through the SU30 radar dubbed as Mini AWACS measuring range of target for Bison if Bison had data link ability or through Bison's FLIR itself.
