Enough With The Indian Mig

F16 vs mig 21

Anyway, what about the hospitalised pilot? Climbing speed: The Mirage wins over the F-16 in this case. Networking alone could have been the decisive factor, along with tactics, experience, and electronic warfare, and especially supporting airborne early warning and control aircraft capabilities. India acknowledged the loss of one, while Pakistan denied any losses of aircraft. Both sides have had public celebrations recently to some extent haven't they with awards for Minty Aggarwal Yuddh Seva Medal and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman Vir Chakra - not clear if there will be an actual ceremony. With the ability to carry smarter weapons, the Bison also received a very important piece of equipment from Israel, the bolt-on Elta-8222 self-protection electronic warfare pod.

Or one can look up footage of Fencer shot down by Turks. Fooled nobody but good attempt nevertheless. With all this in mind, is it possible that a MiG-21 Bison shot down a Pakistani F-16? Due to explosive international dimensions of the issue, Pakistan is refraining from mentioning it. Other upgrades that are still in the works, including for the F-15 force, were spurred by the Cope India's after-action findings. I can confirm that none of the f16 pilots are missing….

The whole incident started in the early hours of Tuesday when 12 Indian Air Force Mirage-2000 fighter jets from Dassault Aviation, the French company who also manufactures the Rafale Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircrafts, entered Pakistani airspace and dropped 1,000-kg laser-guided bombs on Jaish-e-Mohammed terror launch pads across the Line of Control. The fact is, the side with the more capable sensor and networking architecture and most potent electronic warfare capabilities, as well as a creative tactics playbook and experience to leverage it, can have a far greater advantage regardless of 'airframe versus airframe' performance differentials. Was the Bison flying at low-level, using the mountainous terrain to mask its radar signature? I didn't do that, because I believe it will be pretty identical to the russian sources I found online. What was the opposing aircraft's mission? There was a data link between the Flankers that was used to pass information. So, case closed when it comes to one of the most prolific examples of the garbage mound of 'evidence' swirling around the incident. Unless this person retired years back why would he conclude that a twin seater F-16 always has two pilots? The MiG-21 was designed as a short-range interceptor, and the Phantom was a long-range aircraft. If it takes 10 years, take 10, come back to this forum in 10 or 20 or whenever when you've found the wreckage.

Very informative, however forget it because right now, even Russians the designers couldn't come and confirm this was clearly the second chute of the Mig21 per their assessment because India just will not accept it because that would mean accepting total failure. However, since a large number of weapons can be stored on this aircraft, it can definitely be used efficiently in both air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. The Bison's beyond visual range missiles can lock on to Pakistani F-16s from a safe distance. Where u the pilot who was flying the MiG-21, or where u the radar controller monitoring this fight? Or does this put into question the F-16's capabilities? The MiG-21s would be embedded with a MiG-27 Flogger for integral protection. It's mainly about Soviet K-36 an impressive specimen to say the least! The MiG-21 has a notorious history of crashing due to technical snags and as per an estimate, more than 500 planes have been lost to various crashes all across the country. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory. Doesn't look like a fair fight.

Later everyone got to know that one Indiam soldier returned back and was safe but one was in their custody. Below you can see a MiG-29 vs. The 21 is famous for its Delta Wings and the first prototype called the Ye-4 took its maiden flight on 16 June 1955 and made its first public appearance at the Soviet Aviation Day display in Moscow. Whoever doubts me may type all that text manually into translator. Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force.

Can a MiG

F16 vs mig 21

F16 has a combat radius of 547 km and one of the most modern air craft and can dliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy jets, and return to its starting point. Good that you mentioned Kargil conflict where Pakistan Army supposedly didn't acknowledge casualties. He was returned to India in remarkably good shape not long after. None of that, other than childish evidence of two static radar images. F-16 was designed to be a cost effective, light multirole fighter-bomber jet that could be a support to the more expensive F-15 Eagle. The one who was injured was a Pakistani Soldier.

Then on Wednesday, there were reports that Pakistan Air Force has deployed its F-16 Falcon fighter jets, made by U. There is a lot to be concerned about. The only chance the MiG has is to try to escape using that double-afterburner of his. Anyway, what about the hospitalised pilot? One Mig 21, One Mig27, and one Mi17. At some stage these aircraft will have to come within visual range and that's when pocket rockets like the MiG-21 can be deadly.
