Now, in the country-fight common people hardly know about Rafale Jets and F-16. To help you understand the topic we have come up with a brief comparison about the Pakistan F 16 and Indian rafale. Just take a look at the following information.

Pakistan F16 Features

In F16, Lockheed Martin has integrated technologies derived from the F-22 and F-35 including the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) APG-83 radar that provides F-16 with 5th generation fighter radar capability. It can detect enemies in a range of 120 kms. Its maximum engagement range is 20 targets at 84 kms.

Indian Rafale Jet Features

Rafale is fitted with a multi-directional radar which can detect 40 targets at the same time in a range of over 100 kms. It has undetectable passive radar sensor which is an extremely precise optical camera.


There is a recognisance pod: a massive digital camera which can take photos at any speed with a precision of 10 cms. And finally, there is  Spectra, an integrated defence aid system which can jam or counter-jam enemy radar signals, give missile-approach warnings and send out decoy signals in case an enemy missile gets too close to the Rafale.

Therefore, it is clear that declaring winner is a difficult task until the pilots shows their skills. Let's time decide the fate of the countries.
