Foreign press: In 2019, the JF-17 of the Pakistani Air Force performed very poorly against the Mirage-2000 and Su-30MKI of the Indian Air Force

55

The Indian press continues to discuss the events of two years ago, when first the Indian Air Force struck a militant camp in Balakot (on the territory of Pakistan), and then the Pakistani Air Force planes carried out an operation in Indian airspace. Moreover, the more time has passed since those events, the more victorious the publications of Indian authors look.


This time it was announced that the aircraft of the Sino-Pakistani development of the JF-17 during the air battle "showed their unreliability."

It is noteworthy that Indian authors in this regard were inspired by the publication of the publication Pentapostagma, which works in the Greek segment of the Internet.

From the material of the foreign press:

On February 27, 2019, during the operation, the JF-17 fighter of the Pakistani Air Force performed very poorly against the Mirage-2000 and Su-30MKI of the Indian Air Force. The Link-17 data link turned out to be extremely unreliable. The fighter does not have effective airborne radar. It is also characterized by low carrying capacity and low accuracy of use. weapons.

It is alleged that none of the missiles used by the JF-17 fighters reached their target.

From the article:

The JF-17 radar exhibits erratic performance, resulting in limited options for the pilot.

It was noted that "in addition to some Chinese missiles, the Pakistani Air Force fighter-bomber carries the usual MiG-21 combat load."

Following the "unsuccessful operation," Pakistan allegedly decided to consider purchasing its J-10 aircraft from China.

    Well, judge for yourself: is it possible to expect good beautiful work from an ugly plane ?!
    And here you can immediately see that the provincial artisans riveted and brazed! laughing
    Maybe even the weapons were bought in the same market as the dviguns, and the fuselage was stolen from the American storage base.

          This battle ended with the loss of the Indians from this particular aircraft. F-16s also participated in the dump. As a result of air combat, the MiG-21-93 was shot down by a Pakistani JF-17 fighter. Captured Indian military pilot Abhinandan Varthaman was handed over by Pakistan to Indian officials on March 1, 2019.
          So much for the "shit". The Chinese have competently altered the nose, making room for the radar, made a wing with influxes of the F-16 type. It turned out pretty well and cheap.

          So it is not Pakistan that "whines", it is India that has been rejoicing for two years.
          Although the Pakistanis shot down the Indian MiG-21, and did not recognize their downed (?) F-16 - they say that everything is in place.
          In addition, Azerbaijan is buying from Pakistan its "unsuccessful" JF-17 right now for its Air Force. Although, just before the war, they looked closely at our MiG-35s.

      There is such a legend in aviation circles (I cannot vouch for the reliability): in the 30s of the last century, one "aircraft designer" (like a fox terrier: there is little mind, but more than enough energy!) Tried to push through his project of a miracle plane ... "foodball-foodball" by authorities, until they "kicked off" to A.N. Tupolev .... When the would-be inventor unfolded a general drawing in front of Andrey Nikolayevich, Tupolev just glanced at him and immediately averted his eyes: "It will NOT fly!"
      "Why won't it fly?"the" inventor "got angry:"Here are all the calculations! He can't help but fly!"... ANT answered irritably:"To hell with the calculations! He will NOT fly, because he is NICE!"
      PS "Woe Inventor" turned out to be extremely persistent: he almost got to the Politburo, but he still begged for money and the decision to build a prototype! The plane never took off .......

    By the way, the JF-17 THUNDER block III is already being tested with might and main, in which all the shortcomings have been eliminated. And the JF-17, it is quite worthy to fight not only with the MiG-29, with the Su 30 MKI, with the Mirage, with Tejas and even with the F-16. It has a Chinese-made AFAR. And in the version for the Azerbaijani Air Force, it is planned to install radar antennas manufactured by the Italian LEONARDO. Electronics, control systems will also be of Italian and Turkish (ASELSAN) origin. And the missiles can be both Chinese, Russian and Pakistani, and Italian and Turkish. The bombs will also be both Russian and the latest Turkish COM, and the speed in the block III version will reach 2 MAX. And thanks to the structure of the MiG-21 (on which the JF-17 is based) THUNDER turned out to be maneuverable ...

      If moment-21 were so wonderful, we would still modernize it, and these tales about "on equal terms with f16, twilight and moment30" are from the evil one. This instant-29 is more maneuverable than our dryers? In general, all this is out of despair, roughly like the first attempts of the Chinese in their aviation in the 21s, where the "stools" were rearranged for the hundredth time in the Soviet base of the 90s.

        Then please explain the efforts of Russia about the Su-57, if it has the Su-35 (which actively advertises and tries to sell to everyone who is interested in the Su-57).

          What does su57 have to do with it? Have you all forgotten how to read? I will repeat once again for clarity - if the moment-21 were so cool, I would still have flown them, however, given that it is not ideal, we switched to further models and eventually came to the su-57, and did not sit for a moment-21 ... And about the efforts - the su-57 has no 900 shortcomings and it passed the state, in contrast to the f35, which they stamped a bunch without effort. However, it was more about "confrontation between f16 and moment-29", to which he is not a rival, except perhaps the oldest.

      And the F-16, especially the Pakistani one, is some kind of miracle of technology, what "even with the F-16"? If, of course, you stick in the most modern avionics, then, probably, you can compete with the Soviet MiG-29, or the Su-30MKI from 1999, but the latter is already doubtful

      The F-35 is stuffed with avionics-electronics, but if the aerodynamics are crappy, then they were afraid to lift the plane into the Syrian sky when the Su-35 was in charge, so that when comparing "next to" specialists would not make the appropriate organizational conclusions.
      And this is just one small episode of dozens of similar situations, which is why the F-35 was discontinued for a month now.
      So after all, they still keep quiet about how many cars fell into a "dead dive" because of electronics-avionics ...
      By the way, the F-35 is also a very ugly car ...

          Please compare, AT LEAST with the Su-35, although in an air battle even with this middle-aged aircraft, your lightning is a piece of scrap metal: it will not even be able to get out of the air battle in terms of speed, and it will definitely be destroyed in terms of maneuverability, although the Su-35 maneuvers even from aircraft missiles.

            Once again, look at the performance characteristics of the F-35 and the "superhornet", they are about the same, only the F-35 implements the same thrust with a single-engine power plant of less mass. The Hornet was created for the very specific requirements of a multipurpose carrier-based aircraft (but it also successfully entered a number of ground air forces). The interceptor from it is so-so, of course, due to the low max. speed, but from the point of view of the exit from the battle, which usually starts at 0.9M, this is not the biggest problem, since the pursuit of the enemy leaving afterburner is not particularly promising and fraught with the development of its own fuel, since it is then he flies to his base, he does not care, and the pursuer moves away from his base.

              In comparison, only the "old man" Su - 35 is interesting - the most massive aircraft that will be produced for interception (and an air battle with the F-35) - at a non-afterburner speed of 0,9M, and at an afterburner of 2,25M your aircraft has NO chances to leave the battle if the enemy does not make gross and unacceptable mistakes in the conduct of the battle.
              I do not specifically mention the MiG-31 and Su-57, which will shoot the F-35 without even entering the zone of destruction of his weapon, and he will not even be able to evade the rocket by maneuvering (I’m silent about speed) laughing yes laughing ..

                The MiG-31 has an outdated radar, which you should upgrade at least how much, and you don't really need to, since the aircraft is no longer in production, and the Su-57 will completely replace it.

                Once again, the maximum speed, as such, is not a critical factor for exiting the battle, since you will have to exit at much lower speeds. 1800-1900 km / h is a fairly typical max. speed for strike vehicles, which, when fighters appear, generally have one tactic - to give a fight. The Su-17 in the latest modification of the M4 generally lost its maximum speed of 400-500 km / h due to the introduction of an unregulated air intake, but, obviously, this did not bother anyone.

                  It's like setting a task: to conclude a beautiful contract - and in 3 months a new radar station will be tested with a combat range of 450-550 km (if it is ALREADY not licked out for surrender to modernize old and not very airplanes) - the time has come.
                  Po-2s flew at speeds "much lower", now they do not fly - the radar power is not enough. laughing This means that they will shoot your slow-moving vehicles with 37M and 72M missiles, without approaching the "dog fight" distance.

                    Even medium-range missiles do not show very high hit rates.

                    They are still sawing from the radar on the MiG-35. In such conditions, the maximum concentration on Н036 seems to be much more reliable.

    In 2019, the JF-17 of the Pakistani Air Force performed very poorly against the Mirage-2000 and Su-30MKI of the Indian Air Force

    It's a strange article, comparing an aircraft based on a 3rd generation aircraft with 4th generation aircraft ...
    Indeed, the The JF-17 was born in China as the successor to the J-7 (F-7) aircraft produced here for many years - clones of the legendary Soviet MiG-21. However, time will tell whether the novelty will be able to gain such popularity in the world as the famous domestic fighter had. So far, JF-17 is purchased only by the Pakistani Air Force, and nothing is even known about the intentions to receive it by the People's Liberation Army of China. Nevertheless, interest in the aircraft is already being shown in a number of countries that have traditionally acquired Chinese fighters and whose capabilities do not allow them to have more expensive Western-made aircraft.

    Experienced, pre-production and first production JF-17 fighters flying today are equipped with systems developed and manufactured in China (with the participation of Pakistan). The only exception is the power plant: the engines for them are supplied from Russia., which has more than once been the cause of serious concern on the part of another major partner of our country in military-technical cooperation and at the same time a "sworn friend"

        I don’t know, but I think it’s not 40%. Because it is called - the loss of combat effectiveness.

          That is, you don't know, and, I suspect, you don't want to know, but are you laughing at stupid Chinese?
          And you don't laugh at the RF Ministry of Defense, which does not report anything about combat readiness. Patriotic.

          PS On the first page of Google, the only material reporting the percentage of serviceable flyers in the Air Force - commercial - for 2013. There, combat readiness is 49%.
          But
          Unfortunately, the reasons for such an outrageous sabotage are not indicated)))

    The mustachioed Indian, it seems, was shot down by JF-17?
    It is not surprising that in India they are unhappy with him ...

    In the light of recent events, Greek propaganda will be on the side of the Hindus, and the Hindus will always refer to such sources in unsubstantiated screams about their "coolness".

      By itself, a single-engine aircraft isn't that bad. Examples are endless. F - 16, MiG - 21, - 23. For each job - its own tool. Bad Chinese designer "crazy hands". They "pulled" the stolen parts and ideas, each separately, it seems not bad, together - "maєmo te, scho maєmo"))))

    Not a bad s-t in its price range.
    They refused from the Chinese engines, they put either from the Russian Federation or others.
    On some radars with AFAR, the possibility of refueling in the air.
    7 suspension beams.
    Quite a working machine.
    It is clear that not the brilliance of modern engineering, but will come down for Asia.
