what I have posted is a realistic assessment of impact of BECA on our capability & not meant for criticising S-400... & S-400 was never meant for fighter jets... & according to reliable online sources... India only purchased the 40n6e & 48n6e missiles & none of the lower range versions
I see , so we got them for long range high flying and probably high value targets .

it's not meant for fighter aircraft's ? it's just a rumour that we purchased only longer range version of missiles. Whole system is designed to hit from cruise missiles to tactical ballistic missiles, IRBM's. even so called long range slower maneuvering missiles of S 400 can hit combat aircraft at longer ranges, upward of 200km.
48N6 & 40N6E carry 180Kg high power fragmentation warhead. There seekers have massive range giving them over the horizon capabilities on there own. all it need to do is get close & boom, no maneuvering F 16 getting out without jamming.

Let's , at this moment, recollect that the forensic evidence (26/11) that India had handed over to the Phree peach loving democratizer USA against Pakistan had gone "mysteriously missing from their stores".
All that the Americans seem to have been concerned is that Headley is not a threat to US.That he might be helping Pakistan/LET plan an attack on India, seems not to have mattered to them...

its not a rumour... no meaning of purchasing lower ranged missiles when Barak-8 derivates can take care upto 150km... needless "duplication" of assets... waste of resources

Let's not create our own fiction . Hinduism is not without its flaws. We are different today than we were then, showing the ability to change and assimilate new ideas.

Sati is not the same as Jauhar. Don't mix them up. Sati has been prevalent for millenia. It's in the Mahabharata for heaven's sake. It wasn't compulsory obviously but happened plenty of times. It's in the past but let's not try and justify it today. Best to not get caught dissecting morality plays of a different time. Move on. All religions have something in their past thats indefensible but most have moved on.
Sati is not compulsory ,it is voluntary. Since you bought Mahabharat here , Madri did Sati , but not Kunti , sati was exagerrated by Christian Missionaries to coverup their cruelty like burning women in the name of witches, just like how they mislead the world by calling hooked cross as swastika.

40N6 (380km range ) has terminal speed of Mach 3.4( aroun 1190m/s ).


at mach 3.4...G force during turn for it turn out to be around 12 ( 3.4x3.4 ). So missile need to pull 12 times more G than target it intend to hit ( fighter aircraft )
if max G for missile is around 25 than aircraft need to maintain around 2G to outmanoeuvre it during lock face. With 180kg high power fragment warhead & missile massive range, There are high probability of it hitting even maneuvering aircraft at those range ,so myth that this bulky missile can't hit maneuvering target is just that a myth.

Dpends on how far can you lock the missile , i bet a missile of range 100 km is good enough , with radar range suitable with it

Between, these two, it is the latter that provides total coverage of the IOR area & was thus India’s preferred option for usage. That’s why the foundational Basic Exchange & Cooperation Agreement (BECA) was signed by India with the US on October 27, 2020.
That's a pretty big assumption to make, that the US would share such technology with India.. Have you got anything to back your claim..
The US has no objection if the S-400s of both India & Turkey work as standalone systems devoid of any data-linked networking with the SBIRS-High.
US is generally worried about compromising F-35 stealth characteristics, upon integration of S-400 with NATO link 16 and IFF.. There is also, no report on US being fine with standalone deployment of S-400..
