    To understand how the exercises bring value, these are the transcripts of two pilots Moose and Ragin who flew in Cope India the second one. Their posts were removed later but archived by then.

    From a BR guru....Enjoy

    So in the end they both are telling that the decision making capabilities and the tactical overtures made by the IAF were much better than what the Viper pilots expected.

    And they have almost gauged the capability of almost all the aircraft that they will be facing in the next 25 years of air combat. Well thats the truth.

    ^^^^ By the way also want to add to the above post that the Americans including this Air major dude from the above video were pretty much pissed off with the French mainly b'cause for their maneuvers......:p The french really scooped lot of Info of American tactics from their exercises by employing ''sensors" on their planes.......

    I wanted to know from @ Armand2REP and @haloweene which were those sensors on rafale this above air major is talking about.........
