I feel this would be a smart decision. The same engine can be tried on IJT without afterburner and that would make IJT a great trainer.I still believe the mirage upgrade at 41 million a piece is a sheer waste of money and time would tell that at same price a better performing LCA MK2 with a total life span of 20-25 years would be achieved.

Dump Jaguar re-engine. just buy 40 F-16I with conformal tanks. and some Bunker buster missiles and PGMS from US. It would be far more powerful offensive platform for India.

Either They should get Rolls royce Engine as they are OEM even its thrust is less. or they should buy US made F-16I with avionics for ground attack. which by the way already exists.

Rolls royce Adour MK-821 has better throttle response and less engine wear and tear than F-125
