How much China fears India’s destroyer Rafael fighter jet has been revealed by the state media itself. China recently conducted an exercise claiming that its alleged stealth fighter J-20 beat the Rafale aircraft by 17.0. Stung boastfully, Chinese government media Global Times wrote that this proves once again that the J-20 will outnumber India’s Rafale.
J-20 won against Rafael: Global Times
Quoting the Chinese Army mouthpiece PLA Daily, Global Times wrote that Chen Xinhao, a young pilot belonging to Wang Hai Air Group of the PLA’s Eastern Theater Command, killed 17 fighter jets of opponents in coordination with his teammates. During this period, there was no damage to any aircraft of the Chinese army. However, the Global Times forgot that performing mock drills and actual conditions is a different matter.
Own report exposed Chinese propaganda
PLA Daily stated in its report that Chen Xinhao has flown the new aircraft J-20 for only 100 hours. In such a situation, the question arises as to how such a newbie pilot can perform so well against the world’s most considered Rafale aircraft. At the same time, PLA Daily has put a picture of India’s Sukhoi-30 MKI on the cover of this report. In such a situation how can the Global Times say that its J-20 did maneuvers against Rafael of India.
China is happy with mock drill
The PLA Air Force included J-20 aircraft in the Wang High Air Group in 2019. It is the first air group of the Chinese Air Force that was authorized to fly the J-20. Showcasingly, the Global Times also said that China’s J-20 has performed well in mock drills. Therefore it will perform the same on the battlefield.
Chinese J-20 jet is dwarfed ahead of Rafale’s strengths
According to Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa (retd.), Former Chief of the Indian Air Force, far from confronting Rafael to the Chinese J-20, he is so dwarfed by Rafael’s merits that comparing the two is meaningless. The former Air Chief says that Rafale fighter jets are much higher than China’s J-20 aircraft. He counted the merits of Rafael and said that it is the best in the world in terms of electronic warfare technology, it has Meteor missiles which are guided by radars and Jay Beyond Visual Range Air to Air Missiles (BVRAAM). SCALP is the most lethal air-to-ground weapon in Rafale, India, which is likely to outweigh every weapon available with China in mountainous and high altitudes.
India’s Rafale will be a game changer in the war with China
He said that if there is a war with China, then Rafael will without doubt change the whole game. He said, “If the Indian Air Force manages to penetrate the enemy’s air defenses, then Chinese war planes at Hoton and Gongar air bases are destined to be destroyed. He said that there are 70 Chinese aircraft in Hotan and about 26 on a Gongar airbase located in a tunnel built by Chinese soldiers in Lhasa. Dhanoa said that all the 70 Chinese aircrafts at Hotan airbase are lying in the open and they have no security.
