Su-30MKI and Rafale actions to counter possible Chinese J-20 raid - Indian marshal

15

India's receipt of five French Rafale fighters commented on the former commander-in-chief of the Indian Air Force, Marshal aviation Birender Dhanoa. According to him, these are remarkable aircraft, which are equipped with "advanced electronic warfare and modern missile weapons in the form of Meteor guided missiles and SCALP cruise missiles."


In his interview with Indian media, Marshal Dhanoa, who is called "the architect of the attacks on terrorist positions in Balakot in February 2019," did not ignore the topic of the difficult Indo-Chinese relations.

Birender Dhanoa:

As the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) is focused on a possible offensive on the barren Tibetan plateau, the Indian Air Force, with Rafale fighters as its primary weaponslike a spearhead can decide the outcome of a battle. This will happen if the red flag of war is raised in the region.

The Indian marshal said he acknowledges the threat posed by the new generation of Chinese J-20 fighters, but adds:

The joint actions of the Su-30MKI and Rafale will make it possible to resist a possible raid by Chinese J-20s in the event of an unfavorable development of the situation. In this case, the main threat will not come from the J-20 fighters, but from their ground systems. As I've said in the past, Rafale is a game changer.

The Indian Marshal goes on to say that if Chinese J-20 fighters are so good, then why is the Chinese Air Force using Russian Su-30 and Su-35 when faced with a real threat.

According to Dhanoa, even China's ally Pakistan often uses American F-16s, and if it uses Pakistani-Chinese JF-17s, then with Swedish early warning systems, European radars and a Turkish aiming system installed on them. Birender Dhanoa considers this to be another proof of the unreliability and low functionality of military aircraft manufactured in China (or jointly with China).

    Hindus would not strum their weapons ...
    They have such a neighbor that with him it is necessary to conduct as peaceful rhetoric as possible.
    And they have had "disputed territories" with China for more than half a century. China will not refuse them. They would be rhetoric about sharing this piece of desert. China can agree to this.
    And driving out China is unrealistic.

      According to your logic, if China starts making claims to Russia, will it behave this way too?

        It was so.
        Due to the change in the current of the Amur, the island on the river, which belonged to the USSR, merged with the Chinese coast.
        The Chinese overtook troops there.
        The USSR ironed the island with jet fire systems.
        The Chinese again overtook the troops.
        The USSR recognized the former island as Chinese. This piece of land was not worth too much blood.
        The whole question was settled in one season.

          I think, nevertheless, it is necessary to compare the relations and capabilities of the PRC with the Soviet Union and Russia

    Su35 will deal with Rafals, and at the same time with Su30. Indians try to justify stealing funds and buying planes for 3 prices. All the same, it is not the USA in the first place in theft, India has surpassed it.

    Wasn't it easier to agree? It is clear that there is a half-century confrontation, but I do not believe in the victory of at least one of the countries, but who will benefit from this is very obvious!

    A small victorious war, a famous treat for politicians and marshals with generals !!! You don't have to win it, you just have to declare it ... and it doesn't matter which one your opponent declares!
    if they intend so, play around, run away, it's still risky ..... it's no longer dancing with a tambourine, here it can be differently.

      Politicians with warriors unleash conflicts - so that the military-industrial complex would earn money and pay them for it

    Raphael has one advantage - the Meteor rocket. If it works, then it will not come to close combat.

    It is true that the JF17 is not too reliable, In a dogfight last year Indians shoti it down vith Mig 21 Bis. But in the case of a large scale battle the Chinese would attack in huge numbers and maybe Pakistani too.
