Looks like a mini-B2, with the underbelly livery as you described inspired from the F117.

Here's the F117 in that livery in higher resolution.

Maybe another 10-15 years before we can see a prototype. Then another 5-10 years for a LSP version 😀
Would anyone like to make a bet against my predictions ?

DRDO should JV with pvt/abroad vendor's for tech integration and to minimize deadline period or other wise it will take a decade .

if the west can do it, we can do it better. Even if it takes 30 years er or so, we can invent a better square wheel. After all we have very good expeiencce with the ARJUN,Lost Combat Aircraft and so on.more money down the drain is what I suspect

The First and Second photo aren't even of the same design!! WTF is up with that ?? Are there two designs or is that supposed to be the same design ? Also, why do they release these "computer generated" models about what ifs and what maybe's ?? It is clear from the pictures that this another "concept" aircraft just like how auto manufacturers release concept vehicles that never actually make it to the roads. A UCAV can only work when you have worked out real and tangible objectives you want with the craft. Shape, design etc are all contingent on… Read more »

Thanks Shiv. Keep them coming. God bless ADA and thanks for your efforts. You people are great, don't know how you manage to keep your chin-up while working in this extremely negative environment.

Accepted AURA is cheap crap copy(even when dimension not out yet) of dassault nEUROn. But tell me what nEUROn is, isn't nEUROn itself a CHEAP CRAP COPY of X-47B or X-46?

The pictures or models look great! But the big question is how practical are these machines? Can DRDO make such machines flying with necessary equipments. Anybody can make a RC plane now a days. But can DRDO come up with latest UAV?

I read somewhere, Pakistan is collaborating with Italy to make UAV and they are in the final stages of deploying. May be true or may be false. But, Pakistan is taking the help of Italy to make UAVs. Can India or DRDO collaborate with some other countries, say Israel, South Korea, Japan, etc.

Why could not they try it with forward swept wings. At least no one could have blamed them for copying.

Shiv, why do the photos look like they are from different aircraft? Its as if someone at DRDO/HAL has just sent you pics of some foreign UAV he was editing on his computer! They are 2 completely different designs!! It would be helpful if they mentioned some dates as to when it is supposed to be operational. I hope it wont be 20-30 years as many of the products are. Isn't DRDO/HAL taking up too many things at once? Rustom/UCAV/Saras/Airavat/LCA/MCA/FGFA/MAV/90 passenger a/c etc etcIts becoming a factory of dreams! I want to see them actually making physical things rather than… Read more »

Ravi…These are FALCO UAVs, an Italian UAV by cell, bone and blood nothing pakistani in it at all.

—————-

To all who are skeptical about ADA's capability. Guys you are right it is no way a cake walk for DRDO but then don't you people feel its always better to do something than sitting still. Apart from it veteran IAF officers have already spoken that "no one is going to sell this technology to us in near future and if we need we will have to go by self".

Way to go ADA & DRDO. You've to have a dream to achieve it. Those who have one will realise one. It is a dream concept that's taking its wings. I wish the people invovled in this journey a great success. Going back to money, now a days even small economies are doing well in R&D and now think about we as a 100 billion population are capable of what. The R&D in India is taking its wings and especially the aeronautics. Look at the LCH. I'm expecting a great surge/ revolution in Indian aeronautical development. Atleast its my opinion… Read more »

@Shailendra, israel knows nothing(zilch, nada) about making a jet-powered UCAV. and it is countries like south korea that have much to learn from us in aeronautics, not us from them. wake up, switch off NDTV and throw away those manu pubby reports, learn the reality.
a bunch of liars on western payroll are out to malign Indian efforts in Indian media, so that their masters can get orders. don't fall for those tricksters.

I am the Ravi @1:15PM See, the problem is unless our own Indian Govt, (worst part of in an Indian's life), realizes the real danger, we do not know what to achieve. See, the China-Pak Nuclear deal. The deal will be so secretive, so that no world knows what kind of things going in Pak Nuclear centers. It is high time, India should categorically say that, the deal will have impact on China-India relation. Cancel the deals in which Chinese companies have contracts. Make military agreements with Korea, Japan, Philipines, Vietname and Taiwan, (Yes Taiwan). These countries should make high… Read more »

Yes you are right, but that needs leaders with some balls. Not old men like MMS who takes his cue from italian women. It needs leaders with strategic vision and someone who wants to make india a power in the 21st century, not people who want to make a quick buck for personal gain.

OT (if there is anything like that) Great posts Shiv at BR on the topic of "Are We Ready for a Two-front War ?" I think more people should read it. The last time China attacked India was during the Cuban crisis. Right now there are signs of deepening recession (depression?) in the US which may force the US and other countries to rework their priorities. When the Chinese leadership realize their vast reserves are taking a beating or emerging mass unemployment, they may want to unite the country through war.Taiwan is probably at the top of their list.

Let's focus on building a good TVC fighter first… first things first. HAL/ADA should be careful about where it's resources are going, since they don't seem to have much.

I stumbled upon this article….. Jun 13, 2010No JV with India on fifth-gen fighter: Sukhoi chief MOSCOW (BNS): Russia’s Sukhoi Company has ruled out the possibility of signing a joint venture agreement with India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the development and production of the PAK-FA fifth generation fighter aircraft. "We don’t plan to sign a joint venture. We have agreed on joint work with our Indian colleagues,” Sukhoi head Mikhail Pogosyan was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. The General Director had earlier said that an additional agreement would be signed with India to specify its role in the… Read more »

The two photos do not match.
The second one with with flag on it shows a broad inverted triangle area – in between two tails; whereas the same area is missing in the first top view photo. 🙂

The correct answer would have been for the model with the flag: QinetiQ 5 / Boeing 1303 (2006) Thanks everybody for playing!
