Very nice pictures. There is indeed a strake added to the nose of the plane and another to the tail.

This was done after the crash. Was there certain issues identified with the design?

Good looking plane this one.

Is the LSP-1 fitted with the Saturn AL-55I?

finally, it looks beautiful.

Actually really nice.

Gagan, Sajay ….In general strakes serve two purposes, (1) to improve directional stability, or (2) to generate turbulent air at high angles of attack which improves controllability at such attitudes. I think that these changes have been made to the Sitara for the second reason. At high-AoA, the elevators on the tail would have been 'blanked out' by the wing and the engine intake. These strakes would alleviate such a situation. Daanish … The Sitara is a purely subsonic design. It will just barely (if at all) push through the transonic regime, supersonic is out of the question.
