    Indian Air Force vs. US Air Force

    which air force would win using only current generation, that means 4-4.5 generation aircraft with no assistance from naval and land forces

    i think the Indian Air Force would win with the current generation bacause they have jet that are superior to western jets in many aspects (except for avionics).

    There is no way we can beat the USAF. They outweigh us in Quality and Quantity.

    but the IAF have the Su-30MKI and MiG-29 that are superior to the US F-15 and F-16. in fact IAF defeated the USAF in a mock combat. in 5th generation battle we would whoop IAF with our F-22 and F-35 but we don't have these planes in large numbers to make them useful.

    they have way more F 16s and F 15s than India has Su 30 MKI (140) and Mig 29(60). Our Mig 29's also arent as good as the latest versions of the F 15 and F 16.

    F-16s have destroyed plenty of MiG-29s but no MiG-29 (or any other plane) has ever destroyed an F-16 (as far as I know).

    We cant give a right call unless we know what generation planes they are using.
    For eg if i say BMW M3 VS Merecedes CLK AMG who will win?No one can answer unless i tell their year of make.
    If it is 1982 M3 and 2005 CLK AMG then the 2005 CLK AMG would win.

    The same way,All the fights that f-16 had taken where on the older generation MIG 29,so i dont hold the opinion of 79 - 0 or whatever.Unless they take on the same generation MIG 29.

    I think a properly cordinated strike package of A10's and F-15's would prevent the IAF from getting off the ground. Or are you referring to a strictly DACM encounter in the up high, go fast with white scarf flapping in the wind type of fight ?

    Anything that shoots real bullets and drops real bombs is never a joke. Slightly less threatening than some other weapons systems maybe, but never a joke.

    I dont think u wud again make that mistake by calling it a joke . but overall..there is a world of diff betn IAF and USAF. superiority lies in technology, quantity.
