India flying these old machines which are basically flying coffins. Let''s thank Congress for the abysmal state of affairs
This is shame for Hal as they cant do the upgrading and can''t deliver Tejas still. Wwe are still using Jaguar and Mig. No one in the world is using those outdated jet.

India is the only country using Jaguar and Mig 21s ...
Thanks to Congress who were busy looting and not stretgthning armed forces.
Congress did damage to this country to an extent it's unrecoverable.
Most of fighter MIG planes bought during congress tenure have been crashed & killed our pilot soldiers as well. And now Jaguar has started it''s showing downfall.
Safety of the pilit in important....The jet can be replaced

These flying coffins should have retired long time ago but we are still using it and risking the lives of our pilot. On the top of that serviceability is very poor in IAF.
This is what HAL has been giving Indian Air Force for this long. And congress wants to support such an organization. Why?

Seems no othere Airforce in the world, looses fighter aircrafts as IAF. There is something seriously wrong in training, Aircraft or both. Time to be do a root cause analysis, take necessary corrective actions.
Oh. That''s how the Indian air force gets rid of the age old foghter jetss? By crashing. Hahaha.!
Very sad news....Jaguars needs to be replaced by Tejas as quickly as posdible.....hope HAL speeds up the production of Tejas...

What did Modiji do in the last 5 years apart from signing Rafale aircraft!?. Actually during These 5 years, military is starved for funds!. Bakhts anything to counter!?
In 3 years time there could be news that Rs.1650 crore fighter plane crashes in Punjab or West Bengal.... Govt to increase tax rates to compensate for the loss

For some years now too many fighter planes and pilots are being lost by the IAF. Is it the equipment or the training ?
