WINTER TRIALS, SUMMER TRIALS, AUTUMN TRIALS, MONSOON TRIALS, SPRING TRIALS, DAY TRIALS, NIGHT TRIALS,DUSK TRIALS, AFTERNOON TRIALS and the list goes on and on. Last year the LCA was at Leh for high altitude trials. What is going to be achieved this year that was not achieved last year? And which aircraft in the world has undergone 12 years of trials? But the important thing is we still do not know whether the AoA limitation has been overcome, the wake has been cleared and weapons integrated with the on-board radar to provide terminal guidance? In any other country (apart from… Read more »

@Guru:

Simply loved your comment……You are the real GURU no doubt….You missed naming two trials though, the most important ones: Political trails and Desi-Product falling in love trials…..Unfortunately, Tejas has miserable failed on both counts…

I feel high time now to go for tejas MK2 within 6 months make it fly and within 1 year make AMCA fly. Conduct the certification quickly and cancel the Rafale. It is too expensive and we cannot afford it. 41 million for mirage upgrade then 100 million plus for rafale upgrade. I feel it is high time a suppliers line is developed and HAL should do the assembly with suppliers responsible for sub contract of their part of project. Take help from Japan and Korea as they are also in need of cost effective high end product due to… Read more »

su-30mki… when rao paid russians… 1000k… for enhanced flanker concept… on paper around 1995/6… it was where tejas… is now… if still mki is just maturing… tejas will reach much faster maturity… than any other fighter attack bird… out there… or will ever fly…

Nice one Guru,It might offend us what he said but is nearest to truth.I don't really understand why it's getting delayed year after year. ADA has access to everything. They have engines from US, electronic components from Israel including missiles. And all we see is LCA taking a walk in the park when it is supposed to sprint.ADA claims how successful it has been without any trial accidents. Sure it is when they barely reach its testing envelope. Had it been a private company, the program manager would have been fired and hanged. Just because it's a PSU, you can't… Read more »

People shedding crocodile tears over it's delay in induction are living in rip van winkle world.Tejas has entered series production with a separate production line and the first series production aircraft is expected latter.
Also it is not a 12 year test flight program. The first twos were TDs to demo the tech. only after all the tech is demonstrated to be viable LSPs started rolling out latter with comabat specs.

The IAF took 7 years simply to evaluate and finalize the MMRCA contender.

Shiv, you have successfully ripped these off tejas.gov.in. Sadly, the website says these were the trials conducted in the winter of 2013. Lack of quality check I presume..!!

TO BASHING TEJAS MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLZ ……my two cents FIRST OF ALL TEJAS GIVEN ITS LEVEL OF STRUCTURAL SOPHISTICATION , TEJAS HAS NO COMPETITION . SECONDLY, TD-1 TD-2 , WERE DESIGNED AROUND AIR STAFF REQ OF A 4+ TON AIRCRAFT WITH A WEAPONS LOAD OF 2 TONS. (this was in 2001)AND KAVARI WAS PERFECT WITH THIS JOB. THEN THE AIR STAFF REQ CHANGED AND NOW THEY WANTED A 5+ TON AIRCRAFT WITH A 4 TON OF WEAPON LOAD. *that where kavari FAILED SO A VERY GIANT LEAP , MASSIVE BY AERONAUTICAL STANDARDS, ESP FOR COUNTRY INDIA, I… Read more »

Rahul , the medicines which you take have been released to public use after extensive clinical trials involving humans and animals. After evaluating the efficacy of the drug and its side effects ,then only the drug is certified. same analogy is applied here too!!! drug wars takes place between MNCs due to copyright issues!!!

To be a good fighter/attack aircraft, this plane should carry 2 drop tanks, 2X500 kg bombs, 2 AA missiles, 1 Recce/targeting pod (all-weather) and 1 ECM pod. And with all this it should have a CR of atleast 500 kms at a speed of 950 km/hr. Can Tejas do this.

Tejas should have canards too…this will shorten its take-off to almost half a km. Agree with Anon@8:50…It should be able to take-off in adverse conditions with with complete weapon load.

Rename this aircraft as ch***iya-jas.. coz thats what DRDO has been making of all Indians.No MMRCA in sight , MiGs dropping like flies, Su30 now middle aged. Imagine the scenario in a war…we'll get whooped..and grubby politicians will pay 'bhaavbheeni shraddhanjali'.Wake up India!!

Stop bashing tejas. In case of DRDO and ada, they had to develop an aircraft industry along with a 4.5th generation aircraft with no experience of developing previous generation advanced fighters. They still made it successful. Indian air force pilots have termed it most pilot friendly fighter in Indian inventory. It can carry 8 hard points with a 500 km range.Don't say that jf-17 have been inducted in high number but if IAF had taken similar standard production of tejas would have started long before.Yous should rather search about how many failed fighter aircraft projects there are around the world.… Read more »

People should keep in mind that DRDO and ADA have not only developed a 4.5th generation fighter but also a aircraft developing industry too. Put Together the 30 year time scale isn't big by any standards.
