PAF has actually defined SOP's for PLAAF. They have taught them not only tactics, but strategy.

Not a single platform exists in PLAAF inventory that PAF is not familiar with.


Out of 8, 2 boomers are confirmed.

You love giving GanguDaeshFacists heartaches.... brilliant!

💯 agree with you, PAF has helped PLAAF startegically and also operationally. They have fine tuned them, Chinese were just good in numbers.

Just a question. Why dont we get China's fifth generation fighter in a squadron worth of number. China will sell surely sell it to us no? Does it not cater to our needs...

J-31 is not yet operational and China does not want to sell J-20's to any country at the moment same way as USA does not sell Raptors....

Secondly can we afford J-20's, at the most what we can look upto is, Chinese collaboration in Project Azm. We should be looking for some heavy twin engines....

For Rafales F-16 and JF are good enough, it's the IAF Amca project that we should be worried about...
JF-17 Blk3 IA should be quiet an interceptor.

Jf-17 blk3 along with Solas and add some HQ-9 should be good enough to keep IAF at Bay....we need heavies to kick some ass...
Absolutely!

The indian rafales come with those meteor missiles which have a NEZ of 60 km and range of 150 km. The Aim 120 C-5 in PAF inventory falls short of the meteors max range by 50km. So our F16s will be in a disadvantage when facing off the Rafale in a bvr shootout. The solution lies in getting a more latest missile in the AMRAAM series. We cannot fit Pl15s(comparable to meateor) onto our f16s. So in a way our jf17 block3s are in a better position to take on Rafale than the f16. Am I missing something here?

These days air battles are not that simple, awacs and Ew platforms are as important as the fighters......plus IAF would need at least 3 to 5 years to train and then strategize on the Rafales

Look , They can take 20 years to strategise but their planners will recognize the same fact I pointed out above i.e. the differential in max ranges of both missiles and they will use it to their advantage.On Feb 27 anyone with inside knowledge will tell you that it was part of our strategy to stay the hell away from their mirage 2000s which had been equiped with meteors. Our superior AIM 120 C-5s was the only reason we got the alleged Su30 kill. We could get closer but they could not.

Heard J series coming could be J15 or J31 if we get J20 that would be big win for PAF a real game changer
