The video I saw was about 9 minutes long, is there a longer version?
1: he said about the engines not working properly in fog ,which takes atleast 1 min to launch 6 to 7 planes. he said russian engines are not reliable as american engines
That is BS... those engines work during a tail slide manouver where the air around the aircraft is flowing BACKWARDS, and you believe him when he says their engines are not reliable?
2: he said about the vector thrust when u use that in su30mki and try to go right the plane starts to fall cuz of drag and cant climb ..
Is this guy retarded?
A dogfight is a gun fight with weapons fixed forward... the fastest aircraft to turn their weapons on their enemies aircraft and fire is most likely to live. Thrust vectoring allows you to point your nose and get the first shot without any fear of a stall. The F-22 has thrust vectoring too, while the F-15 pilot is pulling back on the stick but keeping his eye on his altitude and air speed so he doesn't stall and lose control and not be able to control where his nose/weapons/sensors are pointing. That is why they used to say speed is life, because in a fighter if you stall you are a sitting duck till you recover energy and speed to manouver again. For aircraft with thrust vectoring that is not an issue because you can always control your nose even in a super stall.
3: he said su30 can do 22 degree turn but the raptor will do 28 degree turn and will take out the su30 cuz su30 is a big plane with big radar cross section ..
Su-30 has a helmet mounted sight and high off boresight missiles and will be able to fire first... RCS does not effect the performance of IR guided missiles... and when that F-22 puts on its after burners for the dogfight it will be an even easier target...
Also... a 22 degree per second turn rate is for conventional flight aircraft without thrust vectoring... with thrust vectoring the turn rate is irrelevant because the pilot can simply pull back on the stick and turn the nose faster.
If you are flying an F-15 without TVC engines and you have a limit of 25 degrees per second turn rate, that means that if you try to pull a 26 degrees per second turn the plane will lose control and stall and you will not be turning at 25 degrees per second anymore... you will be falling.
In a plane with thrust vector control engines the aircraft wont stall if you pull the nose round further... the aircraft wont be turning at 35 degrees per second or more... you will still be changing direction at 25 degrees per second... it is just that your nose will not be pointing where you are flying. You wont be in a stall, you will have control of the nose of the aircraft and you can line up that plane that is out turning you by a few degrees per second but as he is still in your field of view it doesn't matter because you don't need to point your nose directly at the enemy plane to target and shoot them down... that is why in tests the Mig-29 beat the F-16 every time in 1991 during tests even though it outmanouvered the Mig 62% of the time... it didn't matter cause it was already dead.
It is not really a surprise... the whole point of the F-22 is to hit from high altitude and long range... it is a sniper. If it gets into a knife fight even if it shoots down the enemy aircraft there is a good chance that enemy aircraft could have already seen them and launched a missile... and if that missile hits that means you are trading aircraft one for one... if that enemy aircraft is a Mig-21-98 with a big jamming pod and RVV-MD missiles or even 9M100 Morfei missiles then the F-22 is in real trouble because there are thousands of mig-21s and the Mig-21-98 is not an expensive upgrade...
also he mentioned indians wanted to be a part of the coalition ,, this i know for sure ,india will never be a part of any millitary alliance with usa .
I rather suspect they will not be joining US forces on their invasion of Iran or North Korea, I rather suspect they were more interested in testing themselves to work out what needs work and where they are doing well.
Plus it is a chance to show off their new planes.
the guy who is speaking is terrance fornof he is experienced F15 strike eagle pilot .he was also the director of R & T and also a member of the nevada national guard .
so how serious should we take his comments ???
Well consider him an expert in US equipment and an outside observer of Indian aircraft/pilots.
My brother was in the Army for 20 odd years but he didn't know the L7 LMGs his unit used were Belgian FN Minimis.
Doesn't make him stupid... for his role in the military all he needed to know was they were L7s... they were just a tool and that was the name of that tool within our military.
Just because this guy is a pilot it does not mean he is an expert on Russian fighter aircraft.
the reason i am worried is cuz su30 mki is the backbone of the IAF now and for many yrs to come , pakfa and su35 will take yrs to come to india
Are you expecting combat with the US any time soon?
The Su-30MKI is plenty good enough for any role India might need it for, and also remember that they are getting upgrades too. It is only a matter of time before they get AESA radars and improved engines that will work in the rain.
...my god... they dont' work in fog!!! I guess India has perfect conditions with no dust or hot and high requirements so they don't need reliable engines... note I am being sarcastic BTW.
I remember the British briefings to pilots in the Pacific theatre was that japanese planes are made of rice paper so they can't fly them in the rain...
I seem to remember these planes that can't fly in fog kicked American ass the previous exercise... how green were they?
we have to deal with the F15 and J17 fighters from pakistan and china ..
How many F-15s have Pakistan got?
Relations with Pakistan and the US have soured recently, so if they haven't got them now... I rather doubt they will get them.
Even still based on the results of the exercise the Su-30MKI beats the F-15, and the improved models should do even better... assuming Indian air defence networks are compatible with Russian datalinks...
and when the PakFa comes we dont know how it will do against the J20 ,
Hope you never have to find out.
