About the same force as applied by Rajnath Singh hitting Rafale with a coconutEven clipping each other at 50 knots would see significant amount of damage, that's like two cars clipping each other at 180 Kmph and that's the slowest speed for the Rafale.
TVC would have saved them.
good on paper, actual implementation not so good.
It is not Dassault that is penalised, it is MDBA, which is not even part of the export team that includes Dassault Thales and Safran. And we're talking about a multi-billion dollar contract and a million dollar penalty. When we negotiate we agree on the main principles and then when we apply them there are always details that get stuck. In my opinion, this is just an incident that the Indian media has made a big deal of, but it will be negotiated and no one will hear about it again.good on paper, actual implementation not so good.
Rafale deal: India imposes penalty for delay in offsets duty
For those who are saying we don't nead a dedicated SEAD/DEAD aircraft while flying with Rafale
not at this stage unless the indian mods have advanced it. f4 and new missiles may do it
I can tell you why it can't. Do you want to try to tell me why it can?Currently, older Rafales can simply fly below horizon and take out the radar with Hammer.
The Indian mod comes with the addition of low band jammers, which is the band where surveillance radars operate
The addition of the jammer would allow the use of ARMs from higher altitudes at closer distances, like the Growler does.

AEW&C. Tower radar with SAMs, with a layered distributed defense.
GPS Hammer has a 15km range low. Rafale also has to use its radar for ground following, so the RWR will also get a hit.
did India get an anti-radiation missile from Israel? I don't know that much about the jammer you got from Israel, but enough to know it's not a GROWLER.
