BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Last week, the world witnessed one of the most intense confrontations between the Pakistani and Indian armed forces in several years.

This military confrontation would bring to light both India and Pakistan’s claims to the disputed Kashmir and Jammu territories.

During the confrontation, the Pakistani armed forces managed to shoot down at least two Indian Sukhoi jets that were flying over the disputed Kashmir region.

In response, India claimed that their armed forces downed a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet, despite the PAF’s insistence that they did not use the warplane during the confrontation.

Since the fierce exchange, both sides have remained on high alert around the Kashmir region; however, for now, it appears the hostilities have dissipated, especially since the Pakistani government released the captured Indian pilot.

MiG-21 Bison still in use in India were the very last build mid-80’s, moreover they’re customised with Elta 2032 AESA radar…

Indians should make TER hardpoints for Mi-21bis, so Mig-21 Bison can carry 8x I-Derby-ER, 4x Vympel R-73/74 and a 500L drop-tank. Elta 2032 sees F-16 from 150km

Had they used I-Derby-ER, more than a single F-16 would have been downed. I really should get in touch with Nirmala.

I could do great at improving India’s equipment procurement : I could have spared them billions while them ending with serious force multiplicators.

With their spendings, at the present day, they’d already field 4 aircraft carriers.

And Tejas would be effective for about 10 years if not more. When they bought the project from Dassault, they should have prolonged advising from ’em.

No two Indian Sukhois shot down :
1 Paki F-16 and 1 Indian Mig-21 Bison.
