Alas , who forgot to bribe that US arms cartel , and who just happen to the back room boys for every dirty US Arms deal of the last 30 odd years , and ex Sec Defence Donnie's best mates too!
Didn't the Yankees sell some overpriced spare parts for the F14 to Iran during Iran Iraq war, divert the payments to fund some new drug lords in Nicaragua to take pot shots at Daniel Ortega's peasant army armed with the more reliable AK47! and still managed to lose that war despite Ronnie's mob throwing all the cash and US army weapons they could use at them!
Sadly F16's are no match for the same age Sukhoi-SU27 and as for the newer replacement 34/37 variants even a green Soviet pilot just out of flight training school would win 99 out of 100 in any dogfight with the chickens fresh from Nevada Top Gun advanced flight training school!
Say doesn't the Indian Air Force still have more SU27's and the option to buy the newer versions as well?
Strange times and even stranger so called democratic governments?
But then again these days one can win a war , without even destroying any ground targets or people with today's technology , and push your enemy literally back to the stone age by making all his state of the art electronic technology we rely and are dependent on expire at the blink of an eye!
