With due respect to Team “Ace of PAF” & Tipu7 (AhmAd IbrAhim). PSF wants to clarify few things regarding article. Moreover, this post is just for clarification purpose & we at PSF respect both Team “ACE of PAF” & Tipu7. PSF admires their efforts, passion & patriotism. PSF believes in “Unity” but at the same time wants to guide Nation with real & authentic information for prosperous Pakistan.
After complete “Research & Analysis” PSF can say that keeping aside the point “Poor Paint Job”, following points made by “ACE of PAF” on IAF’s Rafales are totally baseless & false.
1). Missing Air Frame Panels.
2). Missing Sensors.
Now PSF will present reasons, technical data & structural diagram of Dassault Rafale to back up our claim that both “Missing Air Frame Panels” & “Missing Sensors” points raised by “ACE of PAF” are false.
a). Point “Missing Air Frame Panels”. “Consult Picture 1 & 2”
Here in “Picture 1” we can see that “ACE of PAF” is claiming that Indian Air Force Dassault Rafale has missing panels in its airframe but after research on cutaway diagram of Rafale PSF can say with 100% surety that this is “Heat Exchanger Exhaust” (Please Note “55”).
Now check “Picture 2” here again we can see that “ACE of PAF” is claiming that IAF’s Rafale has missing panels in its airframe. Again, after checking cutaway diagram of Dassault Rafale PSF can say that it is “APU Exhaust”. (Please Note “93”).
b). Point “Missing Sensors”. “Consult Picture 3”
Here we can see that “ACE of PAF” is claiming that IAF’s Rafale has missing sensors well again after checking cutaway diagram of Rafale PSF can say with 100% surety that these are “Post Navigation Light” & “Landing Light” respectively. (Please Note “161 & 162”).
PSF did this analysis because it is very important that we must have correct information & data about things. Only legit data leads to legit analysis & only then we as Nation can prosper.
Moreover, PSF agrees that Indian Air Force Rafales are not combat ready not because of missing airframe panels or missing sensors but because it takes time to integrate a fighter jet into existing structure. It will be very hard for IAF to first integrate Rafale into the system since most of its current equipment is Russian & then to maintain Rafale.
For PSF Pakistan comes First & we at PSF try our best to counter such fake/bogus information or news. PSF wants Nation to ask questions, do your own personal research & only then Pakistan can prosper.
Long Live Pakistan
