Bramhos A is 400km+ range , bramhos ground has 450km+ operational range( 600km with less payload)There are plenty of radars can see the hostile jets from 1000kms away. And there are plenty of other mid-range defense systems can be deployed closer to the border, which are much cheaper and more mobility.
With 3 Mach speed, within 5 minutes, the missiles only fly 202 km. Your Su-30s have to come as close as 337km before release the missiles. In other words, Su-30 will have to enter the enemy's front air defense system first before doing anything.
Some were pretty close and the bird was on ascend so not in commanding position.SU30 is a powerfull bird. No doubt.
the five AIM120 were fired from too long, far away the NEZ. It was only a counter measure, not something made with a kill in mind.
How did you calculate the NEZ of AMRAAM,as far as I know pakistanis fired AMRAAM at around 35k feet in the supersonic flight and indian aircrafts were at 15k feet,they tried their best to maximize the chances to hit but failed....And the AMRAAM C5 NEZ is in the 10+ to 15- miles max. So against a fast moving and agile target it was an assured miss. This kind of missile at such a range is only efficient (at what extent?) against C17 or P8I target.
No calculation. Just the compilation of some datas here and there.How did you calculate the NEZ of AMRAAM,as far as I know pakistanis fired AMRAAM at around 35k feet in the supersonic flight and indian aircrafts were at 15k feet,they tried their best to maximize the chances to hit but failed....
It's all unclear.
Meteor is an odd comparison,it will never be used for medium and short range targets...Rocket motors are more energetic in the short-med range engagement and their acc is way higher than the Ramjet ...it's true that meteor has extremely large nez but a lot depends upon launch altitude and other parameters and as far as I know indian Rafales with meteor is a said to engage targets at very long ranges...No calculation. Just the compilation of some datas here and there.
For exemple the NEZ of a Meteor is said to be >60km and 2.5 to 3 greater than those of AMRAAM C5 => NEZ of AMRAAM in the 20 to 25km, so 10+ to 15- miles....
But in fact no precise data, and as you said, the NEZ depends of the relative altitude of the fighter and the target and the speeds of each.
Real and precise NEZ are secrets datas. Even during training between ally (ie GB and French forces), the real datas are lowered....
S-400 is set up to protect the key military base, industrial cities, logistic centres, etc. It has nothing to do with its range. It is about the value and mobility.you forget that S400 is not just a Radar but a whole Missile offence and defence system as well. Factor in the range of missiles and u have your answer.
Second part, even if i factor in your suggestion still they can be easily targeted. Such heavy system do not travel even 1 km in 3-5 minutes. moreover if terrain is not suitable, they are sitting ducks for like of brahmos.
Uncle,S-400 is set up to protect the key military base, industrial cities, logistic centres, etc. It has nothing to do with its range. It is about the value and mobility.
Seems like uncle you need to brush up a lot on capabilities of what these supersonic missile offer, specifically one we have.
Kid, it is very difficult for any supersonic missile to hit a moving small target on the land: there are too much noise for its seeker, and the missile itself is too fast to make extreme maneuve. Importantly, unlike the sea, there are too many obstacles on the ground, rocks, trees, valley, on and on.
There a lot of better and cheaper ways to destroy a single or a group of moving targets, such as long range rocket. Brahmos is not a weapon for everything.
Nice piece but Astra is not yet part of Rafale weapons package6 Rafale are coming..................................In 2016 India opted for Govt to Govt Deal of 36 Dassault Rafale combat aircraft worth 8.78 Billion USD/59000 cr INR.
