we got through the last stages of war without loosing any aircrafts on air and then this happens :(

nothing to do with this. but i think the kfirs should be grounded sooner and slaf should think of upgrading the fighter fleet.

read somewhere that SLAF wanting to upgrade their air-to-air capabilities...

possible either 29's or go for the upgraded version of J-7's from china

but i doubt kfirs will be phased out and grounded...

the avionics upgrades done for those might go in vain if we were to do that me thinks

MiniAce should be able to chime in with lot more accurate info

true..no doubt air to air has to be upgraded like you said and 29 will be the prominent candidate..slaf use two varients of kfirs. c2 and c7. i think the c7 is the one with ugraded radar and other avionics.

But to deal with what threat? As long as the aircraft are airworthy, and there is no threat, there is no reason to upgrade.

Fighter bombers are useful for SL Defense Forces. Air to Air Fighters, not so much. The only air to air threats that can't be dealt with by the current fleet are the Indians and the US Navy. Simply put, can't justify the taxpayer expense. Unless its to line a few pockets, then it'll get MoD approval :)

i sincerely hope there wont be threats anymore in the time to come :D and but it is always good to bring in the new technology. still i know the country has enough priorities than this. :D

former no 5 squadron f-7 pilot and then joined the slaf no 10 attack jet squadron in 2007 and had accomplished a number of precise missions. he was just 28 years old when he met with the tragedy.
