IAF recently confirmed that nearly 4-5 American BVR air-to-air missiles (AIM-120C-5) were fired at a single Indian Sukhoi-30MKI aircraft from fleeing F-16, which not only successfully evaded them but also managed to jam their radar-lock, turning them into unguided rockets which not only lost their target but also crashed without hitting out any target.

“During combat, the use of the F-16 fighter jet by the Pakistan Air Force and multiple launches of AMRAAM were conclusively observed. Prompt and correct tactical action by Sukhoi-30 aircraft, in response to AMRAAM launch, defeated the missile. Parts of the missile fell in area East of Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir, injuring a civilian on the ground,” the IAF said.

AIM-120C-5 missile is a frontline Air to Air Missile system which is equipped on many fighter types produced by the United States and in service with almost all NATO air force along with USAF. Indian Su-30MKI deployed a combination of Jammers, Flares, and Super maneuverability to outclass the chasing missiles in a matter of few seconds of them being fired by PAF F-16. Russian developed Sukhoi-30 fighter jet which not only outmaneuvered the missile but also was also successful in making them a dud rocket by active jamming in the air.

Indian Su-30MKI which comes with thrust vectoring control (TVC) engines and with superior Indian and Israeli Jammers has successfully outdone itself from the simulation results predicted by USAF. It might have created new headaches for Western Military planners and surely will have alarm bells ringing in Pentagon, NATO and many Asian countries who rely heavily on such missiles to defend them self against other Sukhoi-30 operators in the region.

While India is a friendly country to USAF and other NATO forces, but PLAAF which operates a large fleet of Sukhoi-30 and their illegal copies and are always on loggerhead against them in the South China Sea or in other parts of the region where largely Sukhoi-30 variants are deployed. While Chinese Su-30 variants are not technical as advance as Indian Su-30MKI but with the commencement of deliveries of Advance Su-35 fighters from Russia, it will be a matter of a few years before China will have the technology to defeat any BVRAAMs thrown by US-manufactured fourth-generation jets in possible conflict with them in near future.
