Retired Indian Air Force Marshal: Chinese J-20 fighters will not dominate the skies over Asia - Rafali will easily defeat them

94

An absentee press controversy arose between Indian and Pakistani military experts (retired military personnel). It all began with the publication in the Pakistani press of an interview with retired Pakistani Air Force general Shahzad Chaudhry, who was asked to comment on the issue of a possible confrontation in the air between Chinese-made J-20 aircraft and French-made Rafale aircraft. Recall that Rafale has recently been part of the Indian Air Force.


In response to this question, General Chaudhry said that the new generation J-20 fighters "are fundamentally game-changing in the region."
Shahzad Chaudhry:

These are aircraft with new technologies and new capabilities. They are inconspicuous and equipped with modern avionics. J-20s carry air-to-air missiles capable of striking enemy aircraft without entering the affected area themselves.

According to the retired Pakistani general, all this allows the J-20 fighters to outperform Aviationin service with the Indian Air Force.

It was noted that Indian Air Force Rafale fighters "would be better off avoiding meeting with Chinese J-20s."

The retired Indian Air Marshal, Anil Chopra, strongly disagrees with such interpretations. According to a retired marshal, who entered into an absentee dispute with a retired Pakistani general, "many believe that the J-20 is superior to the French Rafale only because the first is attributed to the fifth generation, and the second to the 4,5 (4+) generation." ...

Anil Chopra:

While China is clearly downplaying the Rafale's capabilities, I have reason to doubt the capabilities of the J-20 fighters. They have imperfect engines and are designed in such a way that there is no need to talk about radar stealth. And in the infrared range, they "shine" as clear targets.

Retired Indian Marshal Anil Chopra claims that the French Rafale are superior to the Chinese J-20 in speed and maneuverability, as well as the effectiveness of countering electronic warfare systems.

Anil Chopra:

Chinese J-20 fighters will never dominate the skies over Asia, as the Rafali will easily defeat them.

The main thing in this correspondence dispute between two large retired military men of India and Pakistan is that both of them clearly cannot know all the characteristics of the aircraft that they criticize.

    many believe that the J-20 is superior to the French "Rafale" only because the first belongs to the fifth generation, and the second to the 4,5 generation (4+)

    Here it is, the Asian "Secret of Success" - you just need to carry the plane to the next generation

      To grope with your tongue, especially when you are no longer responsible for anything, is an exciting activity. But what are the claims of the Pak and the Indian based on? Has anyone simulated the battles between these machines? It is high time, it is possible that in the near future they may collide in a real situation.

        French and Chinese, noble warriors with a famous history and school of air battles.
        The Chinese have advanced a lot in CEA, the French are stronger in terms of production culture and many other technologies, but they are both air fighters, but I would not choose any of them, it all depends on where and how they will be used, single-engine rafal will not fly from far away and from the duty area, and if the base is nearby, then you can cover it on the ground.
        As our specialist said, it is not enough to create a fighter, it still needs to be taught to fight.

          single engine rafal won't come from far away

          It seems that the Rafale has always been a twin-engine fighter, unlike the Mirage family, which he replaced on the assembly lines of the Dassault company and as part of the French Air Force, as well as from buyers of French technology. The presence of 2 engines was a mandatory requirement of the representatives of the French Navy, who were going to operate new machines from the deck of aircraft carriers, and France in the 80s and 90s (besides, was not a NATO member at that time) would not have been able to develop a high-thrust engine from scratch alone. .. And so, the resulting SNECMA M88 engine (its gas generator) also served as a prototype for the SAM-146 engine for our SSJ-100, which in many ways led to the current problems (low resource of a military unit and high life cycle cost) with this engine.

              PS
              The Rafale family has never had a single-engine version. Just as there is no different number of engines for one family of modern combat aircraft (such a modification will require the creation of an essentially new machine) ...

                It was originally powered by two General Electric F404-GE-400 by-pass turbojet engines. After 460 test flights, which included landing on the deck of the aircraft carrier Clemenceau (touchdown and missed approach), one engine (left) was replaced with a SNECMA M88-2, which was specially developed for Rafale.

                I was confused to see this.

    If the general does not need a brain, then the marshal of course did not give up. winked “The colonel is being operated on the brain, the surgeon removed the skull and took out the brain. Here the operative on duty runs in.
    - Comrade Colonel! You have been awarded the rank of Major General!
    He jumps up, pushes on the skull, puts on his cap and runs to the exit. The surgeon in pursuit:

                        To correctly process real data (not a spherical horse in a vacuum, from a school physics textbook, but, for example, the results of a real experiment / measurement), it is necessary to correctly select and apply a certain set of filters, thereby removing noise that distorts the truth.
                        In the context of human thinking, people look at truth through the prism of their own perception. If we make corrections for the curvature of the image of truth in this prism, then it is possible, according to a person's description of how he sees truth, to establish how it looks in reality.
                        The simplest example. If your friend's tastes in cinema seem disgusting to you, then you most likely will not go to a film that your friend will go out of their way to praise.

      This is not about proving a hypothesis, which can often be obtained far from immediately, as, for example, was the case with atomism, a hypothesis about which was expressed in ancient Greece.
      In this case, you need the usual factual confirmation. If instead of citing the fact that now it is extremely fast and easy to implement with the help of Google, an absurd persistence follows, then most likely such a fact is absent.

        You can only state that my statement is not 100% proven. But it normal. In our world, very little is 100% proven.

        The "not 100% proven" statement is already the domain of the humanities). And I must admit, not a walker there)).
        In this terminology, I see only two "not 100% proven" statements (yours and your opponent's) and absolutely do not understand the meaning of their mutual existence.

        Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? Or do you not know that as part of the work on the same AI, the developers themselves do not fully understand how it works? Another example is medicine, where in most cases it is not completely clear how certain drugs work, which are precisely selected compounds of chemical elements.

        AI is not any kind of intelligence, in the medical sense. Every neural network has strict mathematics under the hood. Don't be fooled about this. Here you will not find "proven not 100%".

        A typical sophist's answer is not in the sense of the original statement.

        Don't be fooled about this.


        Scientists and programmers have stopped understanding how artificial intelligence makes decisions. This problem was announced by several experts at the main AI conference - Neural Information Processing Systems - held in Long Beach (California), writes Quartz.
        Experts interviewed at Quartz say they need to act before the system gets too complex. “We don't want to take AI decisions for granted without understanding their logic,” says Jason Yosinski of Uber. "For society to accept machine learning models, we need to know how AI makes decisions."

        You are ignorant. You absolutely don't understand what you have quoted.
        Another journalist, in pursuit of a beautiful headline, gave the speaker's assumption that neural networks may become too complex in the future, as: "scientists have ceased to understand."

        Why are you littering the information space with your ridiculous interpretations of what you have no idea about? In my picture of the world, this is akin to a crime.

    firstly, there are few rafals and India not only does not produce them, but cannot even serve properly
    secondly, Rafali is now at the peak of modernization and will not get better, and the Chinese j20 has a huge performance improvement program ahead.
    Thirdly, there is simply no comparison of characteristics.
    sad from showing off Indians - they do not understand the real balance of power
    do not understand that their litigation has already led the country to a very difficult situation, when China has become head and shoulders above the military and the efficiency of the military-industrial complex.

      You say that as if India at least once had superiority over the PRC ?! Do not forget, the USSR supplied our weapons to India, and in the same China, the Chenas produced it under license or without it. Moreover, the motivation of the Chinese and the Indians cannot be compared. India has always been an outsider and a victim. And the fact that they took Rafal instead of the non-existent MiG-35 is a fat minus for Rosoboronexport, Poghosyan, MiG, the Russian government, etc. But even if they took the MiGs, this IMHO would not change anything. As the Indians were beaten, so they will be.

        India did not have superiority, but at least it was a very serious enemy, comparable both in mobilization and in technology. Now it is not so - China is stronger both technically and mobilizingly, economically and psychologically. And this, if you have studied history, always results in some kind of serious change, beneficial to the strongest side.

          Well, she can still do a lot of things. All the same, it has nuclear weapons. Huge mobilization potential, so if the PRC attacks the Indian SS, it will only be paired with Pakistan. One on one, do not risk it. But what’s interesting to me is that now everyone is starting to produce their own weapons ... The monopolies of the USA, Russia, the EU are gradually decreasing ... where will the bloated military-industrial complex go? Although there is still Asia, Africa and Latin America, although there are also movements in the direction of their military-industrial complex?

            What kind of weapon are you talking about? Fighters, air defense, tanks? You can, of course, buy a drone on Ali, but its effectiveness in a conflict slightly different from the showdown of gangs in the third world is not too impressive. And about the bloated military-industrial complex - take an interest in the dynamics of the arms market in the world.

                this is because the military-industrial complex was scattered throughout the territory of the Warsaw Pact - some of the ships were made in Poland, artillery in Czechoslovakia, a lot of things in Germany, boots in Hungary
                And military units were stationed in Europe, Cuba, the mountains of Kazakhstan, Vietnam and other remote points
                And it turned out that on average there were not many military men around.
                For example, it was only 15 years later that I found out that there are already 3 anti-aircraft units in my city. They stood in the forest and did not shine.

            Our military-industrial complex is definitely not inflated. It is necessary to increase it, as well as the release of military equipment for our own Armed Forces. At present, the pace of rearmament is clearly insufficient.
