    It is worth noting that the Air Policing mission, although important, is a quite low risk mission. In more challenging Air to Air task such as OCA or DCA missions where the target can be highly dangerous and where ECM/RCS become of primary relevance, the Rafale seems to prevail with a more comfortable margin.

    I always knew the Dassult Rafael will win but i had doubts because EF-2000 may have improved its tech specs and they had newer engines with more thrust but looking at the result EF-2000 is worse than LCA in terms of project maturity. Sources say EF-2000 may not even be ready till 2016.

    However engine is one area the Raff must improve, its thrust is still in the 4th generation specs. The eco core is not yet ready and has faced some problems in induction. Also the French have refused to accept to work with the Kaveri and instead they want us to take the Eco core and work with it. These points i thought may have been lagging.
