Hello Shiv,
I sent a mail to you that nobody is talking about the performance of Tejas at Iron Fist.
This video is no performance at Iron Fist.
Want to comment?

Major part of the video is shot in binocular vision. Hope it doesnt remain a pipe dream of DODO.

It would give PAF(and any non believer)shivers seeing the hmd and fbw work so well in this video.

tejas is seriously 3rd genor 3++ at best….no room for it in the era of 4++ nd 5th gen…it might have mfds nd fbw but the aerodynamic performance is still in 70s….wont be competitive against j-10s..:/…but i must say that had the project been on schedule ,it would have been a prized possesion for the IAF in the 80s nd 90s …would have succeded the mig 21 FL nd MF…nd saved the lives of many valuable pilots…also we wouldn't have been in such a mess today nd spend billions for 4th gen rafale… DRDO has never lived up to its… Read more »

The aircraft still seems overweight hope the ADA-DRDO can help reduce the same also need some stealth on the same

It is in the news that AMCA is put on hold and they want to concentrate on the LCA project.To me it is a gamble but something worth taking and if I was decision maker I would have taken the same.Put all your resources for LCA mark 2 and Mark 3 I would go for levicon as a standard feature on MK2 and MK3 with back portion like YF 23 with two ruddervator that would give considerable stealth. The composite skin has to have a thin layer of nano particles and special radar absorbent paint be applied and place four… Read more »

Haven't they heard about GoPro

the Best camera solutions for this kind of filming, could have been a lot better with that…..

Shiv, can you confirm the news that the AMCA is on hold until the LCA is delivered?

DRDO/ADA's got some cojones to chase other plane stuff while the LCA is nowhere close to done even after two decades.

By the way, nice video. But LCA still looks like a little bit like a scared puppy. Maybe my expectations are high, but I want to see some wild g-moves pulled. The moves in this video are so mild and no way help win a dogfight against a F-16/M2000/JF's.

"Performance".."beauty"…"shivers"…"work so well"? Are you out of your mind,or have you completely lost it?

This short "propaganda video" is just another reminder of too much money spent on a totally obsolete design that most of the the worlds manufacturer abbandonned in the sixties.. Can't we do anything right??

A short movie showing a "sunday flight"… give me a break!!

Seeing any aircraft in flight is like seeing Elizabeth Taylor in the Bath tub. Quite exciting. But otherwise hardly anything to write home about, The flare ejectors seem to work. BTW those massive undercarriage doors are lovely whilst landing but would cause terrible drag at takeoff, perhaps?
Overall performance would make this video suitable for Bankipore fair.Perhaps it is meant for such.

The LCA's will probably be used to bomb enemy infantry escorted by Flankers 😉 So much for DRDO and its lousy propaganda videos. The writing is already on the wall. A decade or two from now, people would be talking about how LCA went the Marut way. Forget AF's spec, draw up your own spec, sit down with the AF, work on the requirement, arrive on something doable and try to deliver the same on time, else AF should float global tenders for its requirement. But alas, we are a gareeb desh and can't afford to blow 300 Billion USD… Read more »

DRDO, particularly the crew that led it in the 80's and 90's has been DRDP's worst enemies. One of their aims was to make DRDO big. This they succeeded in doing.Unfortunately the need to develop competent hardware on time was a goal they were not EQUIPPED to do.They still are not and like Tiresias, old man, we have seen it all and can foretell the rest.

Awesome vide, Shiv why are the fcuks on your blogs always complaining about DRDO ? No system is without delay and issues.

The maneuvers pulled on the Tejas appear to be quite sedate. It is nice to get all these weapons, SU30, Rafale, but what is India doing about these 50 Chinese that put up a camp 10km inside the LAC. Official lines appear to say "they made a mistake on their map". Right, a mistake of 10km.

lot of people posting 3++ , 4++ should explain what is the shortfall in tejas mk-1. it has 120 km detection and tracking range. Mk-2 is going to have aa ASEA radar and interfaces for MEETEOR missiles.It has the lowest clean config RCS among all the 4.5th gen fighters.Was fighters produced in the 70s had these performance specs?. Tejas was produced in 1993. How come it has the performance of 70s?I don't know why people making such obtuse comments even after seeing tejas doing the missile launch and bombing run. What more they expext for the ASR given? Do people… Read more »

LCA mk-1 is already capable of pulling 8Gs once flight envelope is fully opened.And can take out any J-10 or sukhoi clone with 120 km range meteor or like missile with asea radar combo in mk-2. MK-1 too will get more powerful engine and asea radar in upgrades. What more you want for the two billion dollar development budget asking ada to build a fighter that fits in mig-21 footprint with the flying qualities of Mirage-2000, which will be surpassed in mk-2 and achieved 90 percent in mk-1.

This comment in reference to AMCA Temporary intermission.You MoD Morons are these people out of their mind,AMCA put on hold for LCA delays already LCA is a dead project even if it gets delayed further it doesn't add up to modernization plans of IAF,LCA delay can be supplemented by RAFALE MMRCA but 5th GEN AMCA Technology is critical for IAF to become true potent air force.In fact AMCA project is where all the energy, manpower & funding should be focused not on LCA.Look at Chinese their stealth fighters are already flying they have landed on decks of their carriers by… Read more »

"LCA mk-1 is already capable of pulling 8Gs once flight envelope is fully opened.And can take out any J-10 or sukhoi clone with 120 km range meteor or like missile with asea radar combo in mk-2." I love the caveats. LCA can do everything as long as "flight enveloped is opened". " will be done in MK-2". You really must be smoking something good. If this was the private sector, this project would have been long dead. I've been fed this BS for a long time. Back in the late 90's and the last decade it felt really good to… Read more »

tejas is 3rd gen bcoz of range…..that is comparable to mig 21…..nd similar is the performance envelope…..4th gen fighters like f-16 have greater range….nyone can put big radars in an outdated aircraft but that wont make it aerodynamically superior…even mig 21 2000 ,an israeli upgrade for mig 21s had the same radar as the current tejas radar

tejas was the only aircraft in ironfist 2013 to do a swing role successfully for better understanding of her capability.
