If we are investing so heavily in FGFA aka PAKFA, then what's the need for another stealth fighter??
We must go for one of them. India cannot afford development of two stealth fighters.
Pak fa is only for IAF…while AMCA will be for both air force n indian navy…it will also boost confidence in self reliance…n if sucessful will bring lot of business for india in world arms market
Looks like F-18 SH ???
Fly after 2025..

DODO's another pipe dream4:09 PM"DODO?..look whose commenting….just have look at the achievements of what u prefer to call DODO…even the chinese have started to take note of the achievements (AGNI V)…
only u paki's in land of pure are fond of hiding in pipe and caves….don't worry we'll turn this dream to reality and flush out you from pipe and caves….ohh well whom am i trying to enlighten….disillusioned one's from land of pure..
Uhhhh just getting tired of the same shitty blame comments. Anyways wanted to say that cant see any side weapon bays right below where the wings join the fuselage, ahead of the main carriage. Need some to carry short range aam's considering this is a medium class aircraft.
Thank God they have removed the crank on the LE!Prodyut
What miracles can u expect if India's military spending is a fraction of US and China.
How do we keep our brightest engineers? by paying them peanuts lol.
Replying to a comment above on the need for AMCA when we are expecting the PAK-FA….Broad classification of fighter aircraft is :Light, Medium and Heavy with different functions and different payloads.
While PAK-FA is a heavy fighter, AMCA is a medium weight machine (and LCA is the Light one). Depending on your war strategy, you will need different output from your fighter and having some of all 3 classes can help focus the correct fighter for the required function.
The FGFA and AMCA are of two different weight categories. India should speed up the development of AMCA and not be lethargic like the LCA project.
I don't think there are any "Pakis" commenting on this post. Btw, pls keep your comments objective and without any racial slurs.
DRDO's main purpose isn't about some smart guys taking an exam (SET or whatever ) and getting on to a government employment program where draw monthly salary for rhe rest of their life for doing nothing. That isn't why tax payers are paying for such programs. Your smartness is proven by what you build, not by what exam you pass. DRDO is not a school. Criticism is warranted where its deserved.
Can they do us all a favor and show us ONE frigging part on that plane that is ready? Radar, missile, engine anything???
it will fly at 2075 when whole world makes trip to moon daily
DRDO is going all out on their big plans. Aura Sealth UCAVs, Engines, Long range cruise missile, Missile defense, LCA, AMCA…..Its a make it or go bust thing. All or nothing!…..With DRDO its mostly "nothing".
DRDO is extremely good at paper work….
Hope they really start going ahead with the AMCA now. Rather if they have any mettle, they can do it within the five years of development of the FGFA inside a parallel curve.
-DRDO and other public military firms have been doing well. What they mostley need is PEOPLE TO SUPPORT THEM DURING BAD TIMES ALSO.
-Regarding scientist going abroad. That is Gov. fault. There should be an overdrive effort to find jobs,further develop scientists skills, accomodate scientists, and keep them working for the nation, etc.. Scientists are the backbone of a nation. There should be a big effort to keep your scientists working for you!
Hi shiv, the wing seem to be different than the wing tunnel model. its more raptorish than like the original model. Have they changed the design..
ha ha ha funny toy for drdo for EARN MONEY from gov. drdo engginer do job like gov file department. 1 table to other table and take 35 year
It would be very interesting to know whether this is from some official presentation or is this an artist's impression. Any information is welcome.
Thank you.Indranil Roy
I see some people complaining about DRDO's perceived incompetence. I blame DRDO's PR department for this, more than anybody else. That said, I'd like to see one of these armchair generals to point out a SINGLE defense company (private or government), that produces missiles or tanks or fighters or any other advanced equipment, with the same or lesser funding than DRDO/HAL/ADA does for these projects. Please, challenge us with your facts.
copy paste from somwhere !!!still cannot see any tejas flying around !!!!!
better focus on tejas rather than 100 other things..
What is the source of this design? DRDO published it or featured it somewhere?
Secondly, this design seems to offer little room for missiles.
Third, the air intake seems curved almost at a right angle right at the beginning, doesn't look like a good path for air to flow. Of course this is just an amateur observation only.
What is the time line 2020-2040 even then also if Eads or Boeing helps we may see the fighter otherwise Hal will keep testing amca like tejas
Expected date of IOC 2147 (Without Kaveri)
Looks like lt is carrying AAMRAMs ; )
i will ask all the experts to keep their expectation high from AMCA or keep the deadline high for the project completion IOC by 2030 FOC by 2050 even if we by tejas's timeline and the req. specified by IAF these timeline would be infinity
Hum kush hue.agle 15saal tak hum aise hi pix dhekh kar kush hote rhange ….?
AMCA shall be allowed to proceed after the FGFA/PakFa, even if they are costlier. Future belongs to the stealth whether manned or unmanned.
Haa haa haa haa ….2030. haa haa haa…..2040.haa haa….2070.h……me to chala.Bye Bye Amca
Always good at making impressive cutaway but zero in delivering the real thing…….
Lets discuss the design of AMCA instead of writing pointless comments about DRDO. For me DRDO has delivered massively by making Agni-V. Just look at the change in China's tone now. Can anybody guess what would have happened if Agni-V had failed? How many superpowers get their ICBM design correct at first attempt? “Don't find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain”Henry Ford
Where did you get this drawing/figure from? Is it an official release or an artist impression?
Please mention the source of the document. We expect that much from you and your blog.
Anon@8.16PM: I am under no obligation to reveal my source. The fact that I have not revealed the image source should tell you that it is from an official DRDO document. If it wasn't, that would be mentioned.
>>> The fact that I have not revealed the image source should tell you that it is from an official DRDO document.
Then if it is DRDOs then why are you putting up a SHAMELESS LIVEFIST watermark on it?
You didnt create it, but you are claiming it as your own.
Shiv, grow up and learn some ethics.
Yo, dimwit at 5.51PM: First, read the 'READ THIS!' tab on top of the blog to understand watermarking norms on Livefist. It's only so that thieves like yourself don't filch them and post them elsewhere and pass them off as something you've accessed yourself. Clear?
^^Well said, Aroorji
There is lot of similarity with the F22 in this design. If this design suits our requirements the best, then we should proceed without worrying too much about the reaction of the rest of the world.
