My man looks like misplaced the script given by CCP. Thus this technical error.
I know all about how this fake news spread.

It first appeared on Chinese social media on August 2 and was then picked up by foreign media.

That's why I know the story.

The following is a statement from Taiwan's military

Any Chinese military aircraft that crosses the midline of the strait is recorded

What's exactly your point? Did chinkis send Su35 or J20 or none of the above?


That's the record of Chinese warplanes approaching Taiwan on August 2 - a bulletin from the Taiwanese military.



There is no "SU - 35"

Do you get it?

Irony independence day means India free from Britain
meanwhile in this picture
Air to air refueling probe: British
M.B ejection seat: British
Quartz radome: British
ASRAAM (in MK-1A): British
By that logic , USA should also stop celebrating independence from British rule because US F-35s incorporate the same Martin Baker ejection seats , Cobham refuelling probe , along with 100+ British component suppliers ?

The most complex & disproportionate investment requiring subsystems are left for the last.. the 1st 3 are Indian in MWF & NG-CCM is basically a ToT of the TVC dual-pulse version of ASRAAM.

See the ejection seats videos and you will see why. Why do you think my questions are rants? Why are you so gung ho on western technology? Take a chill pill.
Are you saying you are better educated and informed after seeing few videos than scientist in ADA who choose Martin Baker ejection seat over Russian ejection seat.
Still awaiting for data that proves Russian ejection seat are better than Martin Baker ejection seat.

Why are we using Martin Baker ejection seats when we can have Russian ejections seats for a cheaper price? Those ejection seats are superior to the Martin Baker seats.
All my life, I have heard that there is no better ejection seat than Martin Baker and Russian ejection seat even Russian Pilots don't trust.
How come suddenly Russian seats became superior to Martin baker one?

Sure here you go: https://www.defenceaviation.com/who...ejection-seats-the-americans-or-the-russians/

Your google fu is weak.

And those ejection seats are commonly used on the Su-30s. Since we have more Su-30s and Mig airframes than the LCAs, it would make far more sense to go for these ejection seats as it allows economies of scale and lower the cost overall and not to mention sanction proof.

You know, you don't need to have a knee jerk reaction every time somebody question the need for western products when there are better alternatives on the market and find a Russian product to be superior to a western product.

Or are you such a western fanboi that you feel the need to defend western products on every whim? Do you have such a hardon or in case you are a female, a hankering for western products?

In same article.

To say that Russian seats were superior to U.S. seats would not be entirely factual
They never compared Russian seats with Martin Becker from UK. They compared with US seat makers and calling Russian seats "superior" is half truth as per themselves.

Did you know that Goodrich which makes ejections eats for Boeing warplanes copied the design from NPP Zvezda? Martin Baker may be good but my point remains is that since no other Indian fighter jet uses Martin Baker ejection seats, why go for Martin Baker seats as it introduces a different product and more complexity to the logistic chain? They could, the very least, copy the design from NPP Zvezda and make it their own as Boeing/Goodrich did.

Maybe Everyone involved in the project wanted to make sure that not a single soul dies in any kind of mishap of TEJAS MK1, so they got the BEST one.

Or space constrain , an issue that Russian aircrafts don't face .
