Some news about the 9-1 for the rafale against the typhoon in corsica from Air&Cosmos.
(Some other sources like in DSI said 8-0)
>>That were WVR gun dogfights only. (Nice pictures of Typhoon gun-locked in the magazine)
All the pilots from RAF and AdA were very experimented and the goal was to assess both aircraft when pitched against each other. RAF pilots were specialized in Air superiority missions only whereas rafale pilot dedicated a significant part of their flying hours to other missions.
The mission profile was chosen by the RAF in a configuration that would have theoretically put the Typhoon at an advantage.
aircrafts met at 18000 ft and 350kts with the same trajectory for 2km and then turned 45° (external turn) and then went head on against each other to start the dogfight.
Usually rafale pilots needed less than 40 seconds and three turns to have the upper hand and score a shot. For french pilots the results is explained by rafale superior FBW system and rafale ability to point its nose even at extremely slow speeds.
