Pakistani press explains why "India's delight" in connection with the delivery of Rafal aircraft is inappropriate

30

The Pakistani media are discussing the euphoria that reigns in India in connection with the arrival of five French-made Rafale fighters in the country. Recall that the planes landed at Ambala airbase in India on July 29.


Pakistani columnist Mohammad Saleh Zaafir writes the following:

India's enthusiasm for the delivery of the Rafale aircraft is misplaced. In India, they do not understand that new technology for its Air Force is not an asset, but a great responsibility.

According to Zaafir, the Indian park aviation so heterogeneous that for the Indian Air Force, sooner or later, the maintenance of all these aircraft will become a real headache. The Pakistani author recalls that the Indian Air Force today is armed with aircraft made in France, Russia, the United States, and India itself. At the same time, with each new purchase, the logistics of service become more complicated, which leads to additional costs.

For the Rafal fighters, the air refueling systems used by the Il-78 air tankers had to be altered. To make French-made fighters fly to India, French Air Force aircraft tankers were used.

Mohammad Saleh Zaafir in the Pakistani edition of The International News:

The Maintenance and Overhaul (MRO) program for all of these fighters, including the Rafale, is becoming not only a logistical nightmare for the Indian Air Force, but also incredibly expensive. It also negatively affects operational availability, which for India is usually no more than 60%.

      And the Pakistanis themselves, isn't it? They themselves have planes made in China, the USA, France, and even Russia and other countries. Apparently, they themselves were worn out with this logistics from this and are glad that their eternal opponent has gotten himself into the same shit ...

        Every person who has bought an expensive toy thinks that it (toy, car, telephone, guitar ...) is the best.
        I bought it. good
        I buy the best .... fellow etc. etc.

        Why are Hindus forbidden to be human? request

        Why expect Indians to announce that they bought shit? request

          - Indeed: why wait for such an absurd statement on one of the best aircraft of the 4th generation? (The top three are for sure)

    Hindus rejoice only because Rafali FLY to India. But dances with a tambourine around them will only begin now. What is the accident rate in the local Air Force?

    The Pak don't understand that the main thing in India is dancing. Preferably with tambourines and songs .. The purpose of all these purchases is to drink some dough, and not at all to increase the defense capacity of some kind ..

      As they understand, these are "non-brothers", very similar to their non-faith relatives. They had a similar film industry, but seemed to have thinned a lot in the 80s due to religious tightening of the screws.

      Well no. In India, the struggle for the budget is at its peak, they are at the peak of corruption and bribery. While the top of the eye is closing its eyes on it (or rather participating) it only grows. One clan smuggles through its own, others its own and .... both succeed. It is for this reason that the auctions are going on with the search for opportunities, where someone can unfasten more, it is for this reason that the technique either rises or hates depending on the customer. Not war will break them, corruption and bribery, here are the nails in the coffin of the military-industrial complex of India, as well as everyone else, because no one in my world disdains this, but India is at its peak and without restrictions!

    The war will show. But the reasoning is generally correct. In the USSR, there was a fairly large fleet of aircraft, and the order of the commander-in-chief established the standard for the serviceability of aircraft at the level of 95%. In the mid-90s, 4 ... 5 remained in serviceable aircraft in some aviation regiments. You can buy anything, but you also need to regularly fund combat readiness.

      - There have not been such standards in the USSR Air Force in any decade, it has always been 80% of serviceable aircraft in service... About "95%" - stupid nonsense of a layman ...

    it's not about the size of the park, but about its diversity from the manufacturer - each elephant has its own level of blanket)))

    The dancers really act like magpies. More different and bright. Nobody thinks about logistics and repairs. It really becomes a pity that they are supplied with good tanks, missiles, planes ... It is clear that this is money, but it is a shame that excellent equipment goes to the characters of the fable "monkey and glasses"

    All aircraft are reduced to specific units and based on specific air bases. For example, a Su-25 and a MiG-29 can be based at the airbase at the same time, with no problems occurring either with us or with anyone else in the world.
    In addition, the maintenance of fighters like Rafal has been greatly simplified; they will be re-equipped with specific units of the Indian Air Force. Rafal really outperforms fighters of a similar class in service with Pakistan or China. Representatives of the latter can, of course, write anything negative at the same time, but the threat to the qualitative improvement of the enemy's air force is real for them, and they do not have the means or opportunities to obtain equipment of a similar class.
    Only China is armed with our Su-35S in small quantities, which can at the very least compete with Rafal, and Pakistan has nothing to oppose at all.

    Why is it not homogeneous there? SU-30 overwhelming majority. Mirages and the moment-21 will inevitably be written off very soon. You can not take local crafts into account at all.

    Rafal and MiG-29/35 are already torments of choice. In the amount of hundreds of cars, one will be purchased. The most logical thing, of course, is that it would be the Su-30, but, apparently, the lobbyists of the moment and the French also want a rollback.

    Compare the characteristics of airborne radars, missile weapons, self-defense systems, pilot information systems, and remember that Rafal is distinguished by excellent maneuverability. Unfortunately, the Rafal surpasses our Su-35S in terms of components and technologies.
