IF PROCURED BY INDIAN NAVY IT MEANS GOODBYE LCA
What about Naval Tejas ? Has the IN forgotten about it ?
Naval Tejas is in the final throes of development, whereas so-called Sea Gripen exists only in powerPoint presentations doing the rounds of Delhi. Yet, it is given a hearing, but nobody goes to Bangalore to see how N-Tejas is shaping up.
Bad state of affairs.
Please get some update on Naval LCA. When are they planing the first flight?Thanks
Shiv , Does india has any near future plan for Sea gripen .
@Subho, your main premise that Tejas is 1980s tech is totally wrong from the word go. Do you know that Tejas incorporates all avionics of Su-30 MKI ? It's EW suite, Litening target pod, cockpit displays and core avionics computer are shared with Su-30 MKI. Most weapons (except Brahmos) too.
So, Tejas is modern 21st century tech and not 1980s tech like you falsely claimed.
And pray tell us, how is the pvt. sector going to develop fighter jets, if they don't have experience to make even a small 10 x 10 foot propeller driven plane ?
