Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa: Pakistan doesn’t have an answer for Rafales

Indian Air Force’s last major acquisition was the Russian built Sukhoi Su-MKI30 fighters which were termed as fourth-generation fighter jets. Whereas the Rafale jets can be considered as 4.5 to 5th generation fighter aircraft.

Batting for speedy inclusion of Rafale fighter jets in the Indian Air Force’s arsenal, the Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa has today claimed that Pakistan will have no answer to the augmented capabilities of Indian Air Force, once Rafales are deployed along the Indo-Pak border.

“When Rafales come in, our air defence capabilities will enhance manifold, and Pakistan will be deterred from lingering around the border and the LoC with the kind of capabilities we will possess, for which they don’t have an answer,” BS Dhanoa said.

Despite the controversy surrounding the Rafale deal, various stakeholders have lauded the Modi government for an absolutely essential deal pertaining to National security. Former Air chief marshal Anil Yashwant Tipnis had stated that the government-to-government deal for the acquisition of 36 Rafale fighters from Dassault Aviation was a masterstroke. With BS Dhanoa’s endorsement, the central government scored a major shot in the arm for strengthening the air defence by procuring Rafale fighter aircraft.

Indian Air Force’s last major acquisition was the Russian built Sukhoi Su-MKI30 fighters which were termed as fourth-generation fighter jets. Whereas the Rafale jets can be considered as 4.5 to 5th generation fighter aircraft. The Rafale jets are miles ahead of Su-MKI30s with much smaller radar and infra-red signatures, making it difficult to detect. Performance-wise Rafale outshines its contemporaries in most of the parameters such as operational capabilities, safety features and ease of operation/ training/ maintenance.

Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi have tried all their might to scuttle the deal by purveying lies about the deal and allegations of corruption against the Modi government, despite CAG and Supreme Court dismissing their claims.
