hi,Sir you are diverting from your own stance on one side you raise questions and then aggressively push to limits but on other side if some one has different thinking you want to kick him out. This is a voluntary forum with enthusiasts try to keep it same. Please provide hard facts negating the under power engine, weight issues and advanced technologies which are still not in our knowledge instead of snubbing others.
your position as claimed by you is based on reasonable deductions in previous comments awhile ago.
with weapons of death and destruction, it does not work that way.
Please give one real world example to make your stand.
a6, a7, f8, f14, harrier, all under powered aircraft and all overcame their adversaries.
F86 fighter—-terrible fighter at low altitude but did wonders for paf.
What is under powered—-it is when you give it gas today it surges forward tomorrow.
how good is the engine spool up time for the rd93 engine---engine start to take off and what is its benefit.
what is important is that between the jf 17 and the su30, if both begin to start engine at the same time at chaklala and sri nagar, the jf 17 would start---take off---fly and be in attack mode over srinagar air base even before the su30 takes off.
I have written that line multiple times---. Do you have any understanding of what that means---any comprehension at all---or is it just become a habit of young pakistanis to utter without comprehending---.
In daily drive 0 to 60 is not important. What is important is 45 to 75.
jf17 meets & exceeds the threshold set for it.
what if the spool up time of a more powerful engine is bad to poor, do you understand the significance of that for the jf17—. It wont get airborne in a timely and expeditious manner.
Our geography requires that our aircraft engine have a very short time between engine start and take off and that is what the aircraft provides---.
Now if there is still an issue---then one has to consider offsets---. The offset would be HOBS missile---high off bore sight missile.
Getting behind a plane to launch a WVR missile exposes you to the enemy launching a BVR at you from far---because you are busy targeting the aircraft in front of you and you missed hearing the missile launch warning of the missile coming at you---.
