What is the difference between India’s fighter Rafale and Pakistan’s J-10C
India’s Rafale and Pakistan’s J-10C aircraft, both fighter jets are of 4.5 generation. Where Rafale has the capability of high range missile in which the world’s most dangerous Mica and IIR Imaging Infrared Missile can be loaded. So the J-10C given to Pakistan has lower range missile capability, in which only missiles like PL-8/9 can be loaded.
The biggest difference between Pakistan’s J-10C aircraft and India’s Rafale is definitely experience. In fact, Rafale has been used in combat operations in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya and Mali, while this experience is not available with the J-10C.
On the other hand, the firepower of Rafale is more, while the firepower of J-10C is less. Another feature of Rafale is that nuclear missiles can also be fired from it, whereas J-10C does not have this feature.
