The actual news on the results of the recent joint exercises in India has been scarce. NewsHog asks Did The USAF Get Beat Up By India Again?
No-one’s saying so officially, but after the shock of having their F-15s kicked around the sky last year by the Indian Air Force in Russian jets, the USAF must have been hoping to even the score in this year’s US/India air exercises.
The thing is, the only reports so far (and admittedly they are Indian reports) suggest they got another shock.
Yes, one of the Indian reports calls the F-15 the “Tomcat” and they all seem to be over-hyping the reputation of the F-16 (“billed as the most superior fighter in the world “?…no one bills it as anything of the sort), but it appears that maybe the USAF didn’t do as well as they were hoping.
