What is the point of this thread? These people here are also speculating and discussing the same things that we are. Typhoon might or might not be superior to Rafale, but how do we as Indians believe in it? During these simlulated combats, were the skills of the two pilots considered? What were the flight and combat parameters for both aircraft? Did both of them wield similar class of weapons against each other? There are many questions that we can ask here. One of the persons on that thread has smartly put the Kalashnikov vs M16A comparison. Unless and until one considers external and additional factors, one can never find out.i think you guys should read this thread---->
Another example of this can be the Cope Thunder 2004 exercise when the IAF first time undertook an aerial combat exercise with the USAF. The aircraft that was most underestimated and critisized in our arsenal (MiG-21) was the one that caused a huge panic in the USAF offices across their country. Of all the aircraft, it was MiG-21 that proved to be most lethal despite it being well beyond its service life.
Therefore, blindly comparing the two aircraft, Rafale and Typhoon in this case, considering all parameters equal would only draw one conclusion: the person comparing the two jets is either doing it for fun or does not know how to conduct comparative testings for even simple matters let alone something as complex as combat aircraft.
