The Su-30 has better missiles..


Only in your dreams. The AIM-120C-7 has better range and seeker head than the R-77, which has a maximum effective range of about 31 miles, while the C-7's is about 60NM. And the AIM-9X is the best dogfigh missile in the world.

Aircraft Odds vs. Su-35
Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor 10.1:1
Eurofighter Typhoon 4.5:1
Dassault-Breguet Rafale C 1.0:1
Sukhoi Su-35 'Flanker' 1.0:1
McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle 0.8:1
Boeing F/A-18+ 0.4:1
McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C 0.3:1
General Dynamics F-16C 0.3:1


That's an irrelevant DERA study designed to get more sales for the Eurofighter, in other words, it's total BS.

Not to mention the Aim-120D which is due out in 08.


The designation AIM-120D refers to a projected version of the AIM-120C with a two-way data link, more accurate navigation, an expanded no-escape envelope and a 50% increase in range. The AIM-120D is a joint USAF/USN project.

Says who??..
Should I say THATS total BS..?
Where'd you get the 31 mile figure??
And the 60 NM figure??
Sure everything's a sales gimmick then...


DERA included..
Who can we we trust for unbiased info then.
I KNOW ....Hockey guy...!!! NOT..


And the westpoint23 link above doesn't give the range of the AIM-120..

this site below gives it as 20 miles..


www.af.mil...

This site specifically states that the R-77 has a better range than the AIM-120..

www.fas.org...

Now is this a sales gimmick.. or just plain old lies!!..
NO WAIT .. a scheme to deceive congress into funding better ranged missiles..

You guys just kill me with this..

Maybe your blind but if you scroll down on my link you will see the range.
And which version of the Aim-120 are you talking about wit the 20mile range? Some have different ranges than others, be specific!.

The link you give has specs of the AIM 120 - A/B.. not C..
Im not blind,but I thin kyou don't read the articles wiich you post in toto..


And I think the 20 mile range lets assume for the most backward of the AIM120s.. AIM 120 A/B..


Whatever the case .. Hockey guys data is completely inaccurate..


Here a link of a forum trying to acquire the AIM 120C 's range..
Guess what interlgurl posts there too!
