Awesome!!!Can't wait to see it join air force.
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?H.V.Badkas
Major part of the video is shot in binocular vision. Hope it doesnt remain a pipe dream of DODO.
I am impressed.
way to go………
can't wait for MK2
What a shame, Such a beauty and we don't have her in our squadron till now.
It would give PAF(and any non believer)shivers seeing the hmd and fbw work so well in this video.
Only photoes and videoes do not Arm a nation, Mr Shiv..
The DODOs have nothing else to give ??
The aircraft still seems overweight hope the ADA-DRDO can help reduce the same also need some stealth on the same
Haven't they heard about GoPro
the Best camera solutions for this kind of filming, could have been a lot better with that…..
here's the link about what i am saying
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!!
LCA is not trusted product,, 30 years old design except composites,, ,, its mess up for country ,,
Mindblowing Video !
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.
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.
Nice!!! There does seem to be a malfunction of the flare dispenser at 1:22 however??
Nice!! There does seem to be a flare dispenser malfunction at 1:22, flare seems to explode out and then we see only one being dispensed at a time
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.
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.
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
@Uday Sinh Wala… it was sourced… chndni chowk… next time… burma bazar…
for all the haters and ignorants out there…
now either read it and give some logical arguments…or keep ur mouth shut
tejas was the only aircraft in ironfist 2013 to do a swing role successfully for better understanding of her capability.
