We actually know nothing of what happened. This Feb 27th, Sameer Joshi (retd. pilot and entrepreneur), tweeted that M2000s had BVR exchanges with JF-17s and Su30MKIs with F-16s.

It is not sure how many missiles were actually fired, it is entirely possible we fired missiles on PAF ingressing jets but none hit them.

And I don't think we will ever get a full picture of what transpired, only tidbits here and there in the biography of pilots/ACMs.
would take comments by Joshi on balakot and feb 27 with a bit of salt .

his article on balakot bombing was pure nonsense.

Well done, Person who even forget name "Tejas" during his all speeches will promote Tejas for Egypt.

MoD must send someone with him to remind him word Tejas on every 30minutes.
really ? , air chief doesnt know of tejas ?

Yeah, at least they are sending a professional, well-respected man who dedicated his life fighting for his country.

Thank god they are not sending a khaini-rubbing HAL representative, who will accidentally sell Vimal and Communism instead to Egypt.
But such memory loss were never shown by HAL or any other Khaini rubbing representative.

Please tell him, he is going for Tejas as a IAF representative instead of UNAF chief who might end up demanding 114 MRFA from Egypt.

It's not memory loss, it's just not worth remembering. Tejas sits on the lowest rung of our inventory, and in such minuscule numbers, that ACM might as well remember BAE Hawk over it.

Also, ACM is going to Egypt to request them not to order Tejas, because if HAL started to make Tejas for Egypt, we might only get our Tejas Mk2 at the end of the century.

Also, your fired OFB friends called, they wanted you to know chai-biskuts are no longer being tolerated, and management is saying HAL is next on the guillotine.

Report: IAF planning to ink a deal with Russia for 12 Su-30 MKI with advanced electronic warfare (EW) capabilities next year.

Will be used in a role similar to USN's EA-18 Growlers.

Do you reckon , it's from the 21 Migs + 12 Su they have been previously negotiating. Or is it 21+12 Su MKI + 12 SU EW (edit: Escort Jammer)

I doubt they are planning to have Russians develop the EW suite for this. They probably plan to ink a deal with Russians for 12 more Su-30 MKI airframes including the hafta payment for modifications. The modifications will be done by DRDO most likely, maybe in conjunction with the Israelis, maybe not.
So its the same as the rumours of 12 Su-30MKI we've been hearing all along, but now they'll modify it as EW platforms.

Hopefully we put in our/ Israeli electronics into them.
