Eurofighter vs PAK FA

Eurofighter Typhoon vs Sukhoi PAK FA

Comments of readers (Feel free to “Leave a Reply” on bottom.)

1. In any way, Sukhoi T-50 PAK FA is way much better than any of the leading fighter jets across the world. India will stand tall with it’s own variant called the FGFA along with it’s indigenous 5.5 generation called the AMCA.

2. PAK FA’s top speed is rated at Mach 2.3-2.4 Eurofighter can go Mach 2 maximum. Eurofighter also has one of the highest per flight hour costs of any fourth generation aircraft (over twice that of an F 16) it can in no way be considered an economical fighter.

3. Sukhoi PAK FA radar range is more than f22 raptor… Sukhoi PAK FA can easily destroy it before Eurofighter Typhoon could detect Sukhoi PAK FA on radar system…
