RAF EUROFIGHTER TYPHOONS AND IAF SU-30 MKIS MATCH-UP


TO THEIR POTENTIALS IN THEIR FIRST-EVER AERIAL COMBAT

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


14:58 IST

Much was at stake of its reputation, when for the first-time-ever, the Royal Air Force's (RAF) Eurofighter Typhoon, developed by a consortium of European manufacturers and recently inducted into the RAF, was to engage in any kind of an aerial combat with any non-RAF/NATO fighter. The Indian Air Force's (IAF) Sukhoi-30 MKI 'air superiority fighter', which are at Waddington, UK for the bilateral air 'Exercise Indradhanush-2007', had an opponent for the befitting duel.


The operational part of the 'Exercise Indradhanush-2007' began with a series of 1 vs 1 air combat sorties. Both variants landed with their much-touted reputations intact as each side tested their potentials with their adversary in the air to their limits. These sorties were premised not entirely on having winners or losers – but more for their evaluator and training values as encapsulated in the objectives. Both sides ended-up sharing an enhanced respect for each other's capabilities – both in terms of training values, and combat potentials of the diverse aerial platforms.


While the RAF fielded some of their most-experienced and highly-qualified pilots, some of them being very senior performance evaluators in active service, the IAF pilots were a mix of 'young to middle-level pilots' from the 'Rhinos' squadron. The RAF pilots were candid in their admission of the Su-30 MKI's observed superior manouevring in the air, just as they had studied, prepared and anticipated. The IAF pilots on their part were also visibly impressed by the Typhoon's agility in the air.


While it does not imply to say that the 1 vs 1 air combat sorties were meant for backslapping each other, it may be understood that in today's aerial combat scenarios of 'beyond visual range' (BVR) capabilities of air platforms, it is highly unlikely that any of the modern-day fighters will ever get into a situation that warrants extreme close air combat, as in the situation simulated in the 1 vs 1 sorties. With a 'kill' criterion of front-gun ranges being mostly under 1000 metres and a visual tracking envelope behind the target for only up to a 60-degree cone mostly for most fighter aircraft of the world, the unlikely scenario gets more exemplified.


But the irony also lies in the fact that while there is a number of counter and counter-counter measures to make the modern missiles with claims of inescapable parameters redundant by using 'chaff' and other active/passive measures, a 'gun kill' is invariably a most certain kill. The pilots invariably begin honing their tracking and combat skills under such close combat situations.


The exercise that nearly runs into midway by the weekend constitutes mostly mixed missions where RAF F3 Tornados, Hawks and Typhoons are packed together with IAF Su-30 MKIs. The sorties include combat situations of 2 vs 1, 2 vs 2 and upward combinations. The raiders are tasked 'High Value Asset' (HVA) busting on the ground and 'High Value Airborne Asset' (HVAA) busting in the air with the defensive elements designated to counter their ambitions.

英国皇家空军装备的欧洲联合开发的台风战机与印度空军的苏-30mki空中优势战斗机,与英国的双边航空演习indradhanush2007'中战成平手


这次演习开始了一系列的1比1的空战科目. 双方安全降落,战机完好无损,因为每一方都为了发掘自己与对手的潜能,在空战中发挥到极限. 这些科目的前提并不是产生赢家或输家,但可以看出他们的训练成果.双方都通过交流增进相互尊重--无论是在训练、作战和战机.


虽然皇家空军派出了一些最有经验,高素质的飞行员,'犀牛'中队. 皇家空军的飞行员们很坦诚,他们看到了苏-30mki强大的空中机动性,飞行员自己也明显感受到台风敏的空中机动性.


虽然这并不意味着说,1比1的空战飞行意义重大。可以理解的是,在今天的'超视距'空战环境中,这是极不可能的,任何的现代战机都不会陷入这种情况危急空战中。在模拟的情况,在1比1架次空战中,1000米视距范围内的目标只有到了60度角才攻击,在当今世界大部分空战中不太可能.


但讽刺的是基于在这样的事实,有不少平台都有对付导弹的主动/被动干扰措施.飞行员都开始磨炼视距内空战的跟踪和战斗技能.
