The recent Red Flag exercise was really interesting because the Indian Air Force brought its really fancy new fighter, the SU-30MKI. We heard very little of how they did. The Russians wanted to make sure the Indians did not turn on some of the plane's features to keep this away from American sensors. But in the end, thanks to YouTube, you listen to a really frank assessment of the Indian Air Force (and other tidbits) at Red Flag.
