I sincerely hope that the Tejas Mk.2 proves to be the Gripen-killer.

SAAB is probably anxious that once the Tejas comes out in the market (whether or not the IAF accepts it), its Gripen will be dead.

So, its influencing DRDO to accept SAAB-made tech in Tejas Mk.2 so that it can remain profitable at least via Tejas !

The saying goes that, "if you can't bean them, join them."

SAAB seems to be doing exactly that.

Tejas Mk-2 as Gripen Killer. That would be awesome. Anybody who follows Fighter aircrafts (open source) knows the current status of Gripen and Tejas program. Tejas mk -1 is yet to fly with IAF squdrons. We keep reading about IOC and FOC. We will be happy if that happens soon. The way things are going, Tejas mk-2 becomes a Gripen killer by 2050. by then the Gripen will die of pld age. Its good to aspire for paradise but one should not live in fools paradise.

LoL, some bloggers are saying that tejas will be a gripen killer. They are living in a fool's paradise. Frankly speaking Gripen is a battle proven(Libya war), air worthy jet (not superior than rafale or eurofighter) which is in service of some nations. Whereas there is no such existence of tejas. The prototypes are inferior than the trainers. Our HAL babus are squeezing billions of tax payers money in the name of an indigenous, lightest-ever fighter jet programme. The Tejas development is itself is a scam greater than 2g/coalgate/tatra/bofors etc. The govt. should declare through RTI on how much money… Read more »

All that Tejas needs to be at par with Grippen is a powerful engine. Rest can be done

Hoping he would be able to make a deal with SAAB to sell its tech to make LCA-MK2 or may be a joint venture between SAAB and ADA.
That would be the best thing to ever happen 🙂

A for those who are accusing him of not flying in tejas trainer and insulting this man. let me remind you he is behind India's long range missile development projects. his contribution is beyond ADA.

Mr. Anonymous, when the Gripen first inducted in 1996, Sweden already had the option of just purchasing F-16 or Mirage-2000 to counter the looming threat from Russia. They could've made the same silly argument you're making that Gripen is an "unproven" jet. Let's spend billions to buy an F-16 or Mirage-2k-V or whatever. But the Swedish knew that the Gripen has to be given a chance to prove itself. And it did over the years (though I've to say emphatically, that the so-called Gripen-NG is a sham product, cobbled up only for the MRCA sweepstakes). Similarly, IAF has to give… Read more »

I totally agree with abhiman, the IAF must place an order for 200 LCAs instead of buying foreign fighters. Although the LCA mk-1 will attain FOC by 2014 at the earliest and mk-2 FOC probably will by by 2024. In the meantime we can ask our neighbours to behave themselves till we sort our domestic production. As abhiman said the mig series fighters are too old and need to be replaced, the IAF should in the meantime manage with the leftovers. The ball truly is in IAFs court. The sweedish were facing a Russian threat in 1996, though the Russian… Read more »
