Ganz genau. Die F-15C haben sich - unter den leichtsinnigen und ignoranten Voraussetzungen mit dem man in 'Cope-India-I' gegangen ist - eine auf den Deckel geholt. Und deshalb wird das Ganze jetzt im Herbst mit den letzten F-16 Block 50 wiederholt ! Daf?r gehen die Inder heuer nicht mehr nach RED FLAG, sondern eventuell erst im Fr?hjahr 2006 ! Im Juni d.J. gehen ja 6 Su-30 nach Frankreich um sich gegen Rafale zu messen...!IAF pilots to fly against F16s in joint air exercise SHIV AROOR, TheIndianExpressThursday, April 07, 2005 at 0154 hours ISTNEW DELHI, APRIL 6: The IAF?s chance to reconfigure itself for Pakistan?s impending acquisition of F-16s is at hand. In November, the US Air Force will fly a dozen F-16 fighters from the latest Block 50 ? the same being sold to Islamabad ? for a progressive joint air exercise with IAF fighters over a refurbished Kalaikunda (West Bengal) air base.In the Indo-US air exercises held in February last year in Gwalior, USAF had brought F-15 Eagles, though IAF was keen on F-16s. This time, with F-16s formally on offer to India, Pentagon has decided it?s no longer strategically necessary to keep IAF pilots away from USAF F-16s.The USAF will also bring a pair of Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers for mid-flight refuelling, though IAF is understood to have communicated its interest in manoeuvering with American AWACS aircraft, most likely the Boeing-Northrop E-3 AWACS. The rationale: IAF wants to clock as many flying hours as it can possibly get with AWACS before the three Phalcon AWACS planes begin arriving from Israel in 2007. The Force will field Su-30MKIs, Mirage-2000Hs, MiG-21 Bisons and MiG-27M ground strike jets for the November Cope India exercises.Sources said Pentagon?s confirmation that F-16s will be participating and the IAF?s keenness on flying with American AWACS were communicated between March 7-10 in Hawaii at a meeting of the Executive Steering Group under the Indo-US Defence Policy Group (DPG), attended by the IAF?s vice-chief Air Marshal S.K. Malik.The Force is also gunning to participate in the 2006 Red Flag combined air exercises overseen by the USAF?s Nevada-based Air Warfare Center. The Pentagon has taken India?s interest under consideration. The Red Flag exercises, held by the US and allied countries at the Nellis AFB in Nevada, are said to make for the closest simulation of a war scenario of any combined air exercise in the world. It involves comprehensive joint manoeuvres with fighters, bombers, UAVs, electronic countermeasure suppression planes, air superiority jets, AWACS and mid-air refuellers.The joint manoeuvres planned for the November exercises will be more comprehensive and intricate than those engaged in during the first Cope India at Gwalior....kommts alle, reibt Euch an mir !

The Statesman (India)April 7, 2005F-16S TO ROAR OVER BENGALSrinjoy Chowdhury in New DelhiIn a delicious twist of irony, the USA will unveil the F-16C fighter aircraft it wants to sell to India just in the heart of left-ruled West Bengal - at Kalaikonda, later this year. The F-16 has been in the news since the USA announced its sale to Pakistan and also offered the warplane, along with the F-18 fighter, to India.Whether India finally decides to buy it or not, the Air Force will have a very good look at the plane as it is being offered for joint exercises in the next instalment of Cope India, the Indo-US war-game, possibly in October-November. The Kalaikonda air base has recently been refurbished for hosting and staging international style war-games.The F-16's presence on Indian soil - under the circumstances - has a different meaning than just an exchange. It is one of the four planes being considered by the IAF for purchase - and currently, it has plans for 126 of them. It could be one of India's biggest arms deals of all time, as the planes will cost Rs 43,000 crore. The presence of the F-16 planes will allow the IAF to assess the aircraft and compare with the others being considered: the Swedish Gripen, the French Mirage-2000-5s and the Russian MiG-29M.At the exercise, India is likely to field the Sukhoi-30 against the F-16. This could be the secound time the USAF will get the chance to assess the plane, though it is not clear whether the Su-30K or the more advanced Su-30MKI will be made available for the engagements. At Gwalior last year, only the lesser advanced Su-30K flew against US-fighters - but with a clear advantage.
