    Alleged picture of the shot down bird

    If this picture of the crashed plane is legit, it appears to be a Flanker variant.

    Look at the engine position and the mangled “tail” thing to the right of it, between the twin engines. Those are flanker traits.

    There’s also an older video circulating that confirms the captured officer is a Su30 pilot.

    Prior to this success, I had doubts about JF17 design and PLA export material in general. This shows that they take these designs seriously.

    Keep in mind that you're talking about a country with an illiteracy rate of at least 20%. That means 1 in 5 Indians can't even write their own name. To make matters worse, India's government has all the corruption of a Third World country with all the inefficiency of democracy - it's the worst of both worlds. The government changes with the tides, and words like "procurement" and "defense industry" are just bludgeons to beat the opposition.

    India has no choice but to accept the whims of foreign arms suppliers with all the risk that entails. If it had a quasi-efficient procurement process some of that risk could be mitigated but, alas, even that is a bridge too far.

    Certainly looks like a twin engine plane in the first pic. You can see the engine and its nacelle is mostly intact on the left side of the pic. That much debris in the center of the picture does look like it is from a tail sting. Also if you look at the extreme right of the picture near the very edge, you can see what appears to be part of the rounded right engine nacelle.

    Got to add that this is a picture of the plane that crashed in Pakistan. The MKI allegedly crashed in Indian held Kashmir.

    It looks as a F-16 silhouette to me...
