There is absolutely no proof any jets crossed the border other than a single MiG-21. Depending on authenticity of a dubious video, maybe an Su-30MKI. Otherwise any exchange that occurred last February was likely from their own sides of the border.

F-21 offers Rafale-lite for considerable savings. The premium for Rafale makes sense if you cannot afford numbers under LockMart's plan, but otherwise they have the caveat of building it. The engine of the F-21 surely is a leap forward from AL-31 that they build indigenous at the moment. But even this version they license build is considerably behind the curve of current Al-31 designs and retains known flaws.

I think the IAF is getting drunk on these luxuries. HAL may never recover.
