We have OURSELVES TO BLAME.

27th Feb 2019 was a FIASCO.

The PAF warned us they would reply with a befitting response.

WE SHOULD HAVE HAD 50 su30mki MIG29 in the LOC when they crossed

ALL WE showed as 2 mirages 2 su30mki & 4 or 6 mig21 BISON.

To be fielding MIG21 is embaressing in 2020

FFS we have 60 billion dollar defense BUDGET . why are flying 60 year russian crap

NOW THE PAKISTANIS have shot down a mig21 and claim one mki kill too.... they are suggesting we lack doctrine, real combat, proefficiency , are all talk and even rafales wont change anything

IN PDF they have 6 different threads claiming thunder shot down SU30MKI

We got caught with our pants down PERIOD
Pakis live their lies else they have nothing to live for. Why do you get influenced by those imbeciles?

Wow ..the meltdown ..Visiting PDF can make you feel inferior.
Question ..They talk a lot about 27 but why they are dead silent about 26 when we went inside fucking 80 km and came back unharmed ..
behenchod tab Kahan gayi thee unki air force
That's called doctrine ..that's called as Pant down ..
Even my frail granny can fire BVR from behind the LOC ....Or mere Bhai our pilots can launch attack from fucking Mig 21 and shot down F16 ..that's whats called as pilot bravery .
Now next time when you feel like Pants down then remember we got inside 80 km and came back ... the message was ..today it is Balakot and tomorrow it will be Rawalpindi

So at the very best, by 2028-
(Taking into account it takes atleast 4-5 years for even ordered jets to be delivered and further 2 years for tactic operationalization)

14 Su30
4 mig29
3 jaguar (skeptical about this, could be 2)
2 rafale (unless more ordered right now)
3 m2k
6 Lca

For a total of 32 squadrons.

I'm skeptical about any more orders since a lot of capital intensive projects have to be paid for like C295, drones, LCH, awacs, refuellers, not to forget the LCA itself.
Ya nigga the Squadron strength is a tricky numbers so like this.

284 SU 30 MKIs
88 MIG 29 Ups
40 Jaguars
44 Vajras
36 Rafales
123 plus LCA Tejas.

Exculding any writeoffs.

Su30 is not 284, its the original 272, 12 that are ordered now are only replacements for crashed units.
A total of 11 Su 30 have crashed till date.
Also few of those mig 29 have crashed too.

We have currently 67 Mig 29s so plus 21 means 88.
And thanks for the MKIs.

Economy of scale always matter so we could afford LCA and MWF on large scale forget about the Additional Rafales or even MRCA. We seriously need to utilize any facility to construct and fund any tejas or MWF in future.

65 mig 29*
2 have crashed since wikipedia was updated.
Then make it 86 we need to bulk our squadrons with LCA and MWFs or else we go in a spiral down mode funding is still a major issues for us.

About the budget...
IAF capital outlay was around $5B in 2020. If it grows to twice that number by 2029, then total fiscal space for IAF to spend will be $75B during 2020-2029.

Then we have to fund transport helicopters support aircrafts awacs tankers fighters Sara's and what else. If we spend 10 billion dollars on 200 Tejas variants and some more like 100 MWFs for maybe 7 billion dollars then we have additional 300 aircrafts for less than 20 billion dollars.

How a convenient lie does round. Thanks to our media.

The 12 MKI ordered was never to fullfil the crashed numbers. It was to fullfil the sanctioned order of 272.

As per my understanding the numbers to fulfill 272 were bundled up with last batch of 40.
There was piece with HAL i can't find that said to extend the line 'after' the 12 were completed. These 12 are therefore not to fulfill the 272 order.

If however they are, then the squadrons are already understrength, total sukhois on contract being 261 now.

The timeline to complete delivery of initial 140 jets contracted in 2002 was 2015. Now in 2007 another 40 were ordered which obviously would have started getting manufactured or assembled after 2015. In 2012 last batch of 42 were ordered. Now it means 82 numbers would get manufactured after 2015. As per HAL they are manufacturing 12 jets per year which makes it 60 jets after 2015. What about the rest 22?

Looking at specs too, out of 272 jets, 18 were not MKI variants and few of the initial numbers were also sold to one African nation as far as I remember.

Even in the report by famous HINDU, they mentioned that we lost 11 jets to crash. But IAF ordered 12 to compensate that. Do you believe IAF to be this generous? Porkis used the same report to claim the 12th jet to be the one downed by F-Solah.

which African nation?? And why would we be so "generous" to give an extra MKI-ed or MK-ed Sukhoi to any African nation??

I forgot the name. Looking it up. We just sold them. They were the initial batch of MKs, not the MKIs.

Or it was Mig29? May be I am mixing it up. Let me check again.
