I know what the Cbu-105 is but it's such a weird defense for the Jaguar. Is there some problem with mirages that they can't be cleared for usage of the cbu-105?? Most western strike aircrafts can use the cbu-105 so it's not a unique capability. It's a different matter that the IAF only made the jaguars capable of using the cbu 105. But that doesn't change the fact that jaguar is a junk plane. It's underpowered to low a load carrying capacity and basically obsolete...Nope. Let's just say you have no clue what you are talking about.
The typhoon can supercruise too and so can the gripen and su 35 as well as fifth gen planes. It's not a unique capability in that sense.I find it funny how you completely skipped over the part where the "strike fighter" Rafale can supercruise.
When you are stuck with junk that you have manufacturing rights of its better to squeeze out its complete worth than ditching it, specially when you are stuck in an administrative setup that lacks foresight or any strategic ambition and is ignorant about its geopolitical realities. Jaguar is a shit aircraft plane and simple you can add as many electronics but maybe apart from se hypothetical anti-tank or maritime strike operations which will be most probably done by the Mirage anyway , I doubt we will ever see them do any real operations. I hope I get proven wrong but I don't think that's going to change anytime soon.Lol, is that why the IAF plans to operate Jaguars all the way until 2042?
