State media themselves have revealed how much China fears the Indian destroyer, Rafale. China recently conducted an exercise claiming its so-called J-20 stealth fighter had beaten the Rafale plane by 17-0. Boastfully pricked, Chinese government media Global Times wrote that this proves once again that the J-20 will outnumber the Indian Rafale.
J-20 won against Rafael: Global Times
Quoting Chinese military spokesperson PLA Daily, the Global Times wrote that Chen Xinhao, a young pilot from the PLA’s Eastern Theater Command’s Wang Hai Air Group, killed 17 opponent’s fighter jets. in coordination with his teammates. During this period, no Chinese army aircraft were damaged. However, the Global Times forgot that running exercise and real-world simulations is another matter.
Chinese propaganda report revealed
PLA Daily said in its report that Chen Xinhao flew the new J-20 aircraft for only 100 hours. In such a situation, the question arises as to how such a novice pilot can perform so well against the most regarded Rafale aircraft in the world. At the same time, PLA Daily put a photo of Sukhoi-30 MKI from India on the cover of this report. In this case, how can the Global Times say that his J-20 manoeuvred against Rafael of India.
China happy with drilling simulation
The PLA Air Force included J-20 aircraft in the Wang High Air Group in 2019. It is the first Chinese Air Force air group to be authorized to fly the J-20. The Global Times also said the Chinese J-20 performed well in mock exercises. Therefore, he will perform the same on the battlefield.
The Chinese jet J-20 is overpowered in front of the assets of the Rafale
According to Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa (ret.), Former Chief of the Indian Air Force, far from confronting Rafael with the Chinese J-20, he is so eclipsed by Rafael’s merits that compare the two does not make sense. The former air chief says Rafale fighter jets are much taller than Chinese J-20 planes. He counted Rafael’s merits and said he is the best in the world in terms of electronic warfare technology, he owns Meteor missiles which are guided by radars and Jay Beyond Visual Range Air to Air (BVRAAM) missiles. The SCALP is the Rafale’s deadliest air-to-ground weapon in India, which will be heavy on any weapon available with China in mountainous and high altitude regions.
The Indian Rafale will be a game-changer in the war with China
He said that if there was a war with China, Rafael would undoubtedly change the whole game. He said, “If the Indian Air Force manages to penetrate the enemy air defenses, then Chinese warplanes will certainly be destroyed at Hotan and Gongar air bases. He said there were 70 Chinese planes in Hotan and around 26 at a Gongar airbase located in a tunnel built by Chinese troops in Lhasa. Dhanoa said that the 70 Chinese planes at Hotan Air Base lay in the open and had no security.
