Yeh poore din baate kyu karte rehte hai? Jab kuchh karna hoga tab hum dekh lenge ki kitne paani me hai hum.
Actually Cry baby is trying to say... We need a offensive defence for which 114 foreign fighter are needed urgently.

Our Armed forces's generals are having habit to talk like pussy when in public and like a bully when talking regarding local products.

Report: IAF's Composite Battle Response and Analysis Group (CoBRA-G) has given IAF an edge in doctrine development, force employment and strategy over rivals (PAF & 🇨🇳 PLAAF).

What's this?
Are we assessing ourselves and saying we have edge over our adversary :confused1:

I know most here would not agree with me, but this deal HAS to go through!!
For 5 billion euros is peanuts for what we get in this deal!!
There is a need for Rafale, wheather its 36 or more and the window for signing this deal will be closed within 2022(after that election campaign starts). Given the current security scenario we are in it is incumbent on Modi ji to take a personal initiative like he took in 2016. There is no point in mrca nautanki. If we are going for a large order of Rafale then i see no reason to go for additional mkis & 29s. Large order probably call for domestic production of Rafale.

But most imp of all, IAF needs to support mk2 whole heartedly.

Any chance IAF will go for 2nd hand Mirages from UAE?
Tried a few years back according to my memory. I recall that the price wanted was unacceptably high. But now (1) UAE may not want so much (b) India is in urgent need of fighters so they might be able to do a deal. Looks like a way to mitigate a big problem for India to me. Anyone disagree?

My apologies if I've got confused about the Gulf country concerned.

This is a good time to strike a deal. Morocco doesn't have exp with the mirage 2000 and the plane is no longer made. Egypt has a tiny fleet largely unupgraded. India will be the best customer for the entire UAE Mirage 2000 fleet. Will give us a couple of squadrons. That combined with the upcoming 21 MiG 29s should do well to hold the fort until the LCA Mk1A kicks in. The incoming MiG 29s are touted to be very advanced with an AESA radar and all kinds of electronic wizardry built in. The plane has proven effective in the Himalayas. Will free up other birds for duty elsewhere.

These mirage are already upgraded, if price is right (compared to mk2 acquisition cost) then why not. Still better than 21 mig29s deal (no point in upgrading those dinosaurs).

There is no point in acquiring a 21 dinosaurs (mig 29) just to build numbers. Those money would be better spend toward rafale or tejas.

While watching the news about two Indian aircraft being shot down by the PAF during a standoff between the two countries, Mr Khan called up his old student, who was an air force fighter pilot, to congratulate him, the petition added.


It stated that the call lasted two minutes and 27 seconds, during which Mr Khan exchanged congratulatory remarks with the pilot, who stated on his own, without being questioned by the petitioner, that whatever was being shown on media was not even 30pc and that there had been 350 casualties on ground.
