In the 2nd pic I see a mirage-2000 which has several marks on its airframe like it has been refurbished.
Another main difference is its radar dome, its kind of different…

Very nice photos, the first time I notice the flap above the engine air intakes, with a design similar to the PAK-FA… Low speed landing on a carrier is critical.

I am scared of the word "shortly" especially when it comes from DRDO as it is totally the perspective that matters…Like, yeah it would definitely be "shortly" in comparison to the end of the world or for that matter end of terror infrastructure in pakistan…So we should rather ask the context/perspective of our DRDO men as to what is that they compare "time" with…Nyways glad some news came out. Hoping the "shortly" remains a 'shortly'(i.e.within this year…ok, ok till early 2012…what?!! I cant call it shortly anything more than that!!..) NOM

Private sector would have completed the entire LCA project in half of the time, these birds would have been inducted by now. Look what they have done with the LCA Mk I…AF is not ready to accept it and now they have to go for Mk 2.

LCA is just too small for carrier ops. I doubt how much fuel it would carry. Would fly just a couple of hundred kilometers from the ship.

Thank you shiv!Full marks need to go to the vision of then CNS Admiral OS Dawson& Vadm SL Sethi,VCNS,in 1982/83 for funding LCA(N)Project in naval plans documents to the government.They decided to go for this aircraft for the navy rather than imports.The LCA(N)will be capable of air superiority in a radius of around 200nm+ from the CBG in IOR, vectored by P15 / P17 ships.With air to air refuelling expect very much longer radius of operations.The ultimate will be the EW version of this carrier based aircraft carrying air to air missiles for self defense.This aircraft is coming through in… Read more ยป

This Naval Tejas is good. But India should also go for developing next generation STOVL fighter jets like Harriers. It should be noted that these harriers are always game changers.
