Re: Indonesian Fighter Procurement

RAAF F/A-18E and RSAF F-15SG have nothing to envy to Su-35. IMHO, they are at worst on par.

Re: Indonesian Fighter Procurement

1 Vs 1 Eurofighter kicks the SU-35s ass... however the SU-35 costs less than half of one Eurofighter. So if you are smart... you can easily utilize your funds to come up with an adequate strategy to kick the Eurofighters ass if we are talking about utilizing the same amount of funds.

Re: Is that the S-300 people wanted so much? :)

My French brother in law once said that the French Canadian accent is like a redneck version of English. :twisted:

Hmm, not really. It's rather the Ch'ti accent (and strong southern accent too). :mrgreen:

Re: Is that the S-300 people wanted so much? :)

Missiles have a lifetime, and they usually fire expired missile in live fire campaigns.
This is also what happened here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRHK8dvbwWA

So IMO the reliability of the system is not in cause. :)

Re: Caracals and Patriots for Poland

The 3 Euro canards have an interesting and deadly assortment of cruise missiles that are available now or will be available in the next few years.

Re: Caracals and Patriots for Poland

IMHO the best solution is to buy more F-16s. They are good enough to replace SU-22s and we already have knowledge and facilities to use F-16s Why buy American when you have one European and one French excellent product ?
