  1. Nice new look for the main page. Just one suggestion for the forum. Can we make the font size larger? It strains the eyes limiting time on the forum. Thanks.
  2. What the hell is going on? What will Bangladesh do to respond to this? This deal is problematic.
  3. Look at the BAF now. 6 single seat Fulcrums. 31 BG/BGI. Its 2020. There still hasnt been a purchase of an MRCA or whatever they wanna call it. Yes yes 16 are in the cards. The 2 defence agreements havnt been signed yet with the US and will take time. Look at the countries that have ordered the F-35. Bangladesh is not in the same league and will not be for the foreseeable future. The US has NO reason to allow access to F-35 to Bangladesh. And Bangladesh is in no financial position to buy it. Not to mention the absolute chasm in current capability of the BAF and what the F-35 potentially brings to the table to be able to effectively employ it. 2030 is around the corner. No way BAF buys F-35. Also, India is FAR more likely to buy it before Bangladesh gets anywhere close to one. (And that is likely a ways off)
  4. Yes agreed. Its essential to tap into the Western ecosystem and obtain what Myanmar can not. I see no reason why Bangladesh can't field a technologically advanced capable Air Force if it wanted too.
  5. Its one thing to sign a contract. And another to have actual delivery of the platform. And then another to achieve IOC. And then to finally have full operational capability. It takes TIME! Forget about 2022. You're looking at much later. Especially if any Western origin new build fighters are the goal.
  6. Right now MyAF outguns BAF no question. Those SD-10 would present a problem. It seems as if BAF is gonna rely on the Mig-29s for a bit longer and probably indicates any MRCA won't be DELIVERED for quite some time. BD is at a significant disadvantage because of this.
  7. Yup! The US needs more friends in the Indo-Pac region. Maybe Bangladesh can capitalize on this.
  8. Why re-invent the wheel? It's ok. The ends justifies the means. China's leap in aviation in the last 25 years speaks for itself.
  9. Hello everyone. I am Avicenna from PDF. Happy to join this forum and wish it all the best for the future.
