    This demonstrates the main difference between Typhoon and Rafale, at lower speeds Typhoon is limited in AoA NO way the pilot can pull up from this is only afew metters too low...

    Thunder the only thing this video proves is that

    1) The Typhoon is phenomenally capable and certainly in extreme AOA.

    2) Confirms that low level aerobatics is highly dangerous, irrespective of airframe.

    If Rafale were such the lovely plane, countries would be clamouring for it. Personally, I find it one of the most beautiful planes in existence. But beauty does not count in warfare (c.f., Chauchat).
